Golden Globes Nominations by the Numbers: HBO Dominates TV, Lionsgate Leads Movies

“La La Land” racks up most nominations in film categories, while “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” does so in TV

HBO reigned supreme in Golden Globe nominations announced Monday morning, while distributors Lionsgate and A24 exercised dominance over larger competitors like Paramount, Disney and Twentieth Century Fox.

HBO, the premium cable network with a stacked lineup including “Game of Thrones,” “Westworld,” “The Night Of” and “Insecure,” scored 14 nominations. FX came in second with nine nominations thanks to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s love for “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” which topped every other TV series with five nominations.

Lionsgate racked up 13 nominations, including 10 for its Summit label — thanks in large part to the seven nominations that went to “La La Land,” writer-director Damien Chazelle’s musical starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone.

“Moonlight” garnered six nominations for indie distributor A24, whose profile at the Globes this year will also be boosted by nominations for “20th Century Women” and “Lobster,” giving the company nine total nominations a year after its 2015 release “Room” won a Golden Globe and then Oscar for star Brie Larson’s leading performance.

Netflix took a backseat in TV categories this year with only 5 nominations, compared to the eight it lead the competition with last year. But at least it tied streaming competitor Amazon on the TV side, although Amazon has a major presence in film nominees, tying Focus Features and Twentieth Century Fox with six nominations, and even beating out awards juggernaut The Weinstein Company, which only managed five nominations this year.

“The Crown” was Netflix’s biggest hit with three nominations, followed by two for “Stranger Things.” Amazon TV titles that will be in competition during the 2017 ceremony airing on NBC Jan. 8 include “Mozart in the Jungle,” “Transparent” and “Goliath.”
