VOGUE – Fresh off the news that our favorite show, Big Little Lies, will be returning for a second season, it crushed the Golden Globes announcements Monday morning. It scored six nominations, dominating the television categories, part of a whopping 12 that went to HBO. Netflix followed with nine nominations, and FX trailed with eight. It looks like the addictive formula established by BLL—female friendship plus gorgeous houses, a costume party, PTA meetings, a great soundtrack, and a dash of murder—worked on the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, too. We get it, obviously. And we can’t wait to see Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman go head-to-head for best actress in a limited series: Imagine the backstage Instagrams!
Elsewhere in the Globes TV nominations, the drama category looked largely the same, with four returning contenders from last year: The Crown, 2017’s winner; Game of Thrones; Stranger Things; and This Is Us. Only newcomer The Handmaid’s Tale shook things up and dragged the category into political territory. In comedy, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Master of None, SMILF, and Will & Grace will be battling Black-ish to win best series. In film, Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water received seven nominations, with Steven Spielberg’s The Post and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri getting six each.
