Deadline has worked out that British-produced projects and stars accounted for more than a quarter of all 125 Golden Globe nominations, cementing the UK industry’s growing influence over American gongs.
We’ve cribbed a comprehensive list of Brits recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association below, as shows including The Crown and features such as Promising Young Woman performed well.
There were double nominations for Olivia Colman (The Crown, The Father), Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, The Trial of the Chicago 7), and Argentine-British actress Anya Taylor-Joy (Emma, The Queen’s Gambit).
Meanwhile, Small Axe star John Boyega earned his first Golden Globe nomination, as did Emerald Fennell for her breakthrough feature Promising Young Woman. Fennell’s old stomping ground, Killing Eve, was back in the running too, as Jodie Comer was again nominated for best actress in a TV drama.
Sally Woodward-Gentle, founder of Killing Eve producer Sid Gentle Films, praised both women. “We couldn’t be more delighted about the recognition for the magnificent Jodie Comer. Her performance in Season 3 was mesmeric. She is glorious,” she said. “And love to Emerald Fennell for Promising Young Woman. She is a wild, outrageously clever, indomitable talent.”
The Crown hoovered up six nominations — more than any other TV series. Executive producer Suzanne Mackie said: “It’s a wonderful reward for our amazing cast and crew. We couldn’t be more delighted for Olivia, Emma, Gillian Helena, Josh and everyone who’s contributed to season 4 and to Netflix for their continued support. Thank you HFPA.”
