The 2024 Golden Globes nominations were revealed Monday (Dec. 11) and contain the usual share of snubs and surprises, in addition to nominations that were entirely predictable.
No one will be surprised that Barbie led the field with nine nods, including three of the six nods for best original song. Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt, who co-wrote both “I’m Just Ken” and “Dance the Night” (the latter with Dua Lipa and Caroline Ailin), won in this category for co-writing “Shallow” from A Star Is Born. Billie Eilish and Finneas, who co-wrote “What Was I Made For?,” won in this category for co-writing “No Time to Die” from the James Bond film of the same name.
This is only the second time in Globes history that three songs from a given film were nominated for best original song. This last happened with Aladdin in 1992 (when there were just five nominees in the category). “A Whole New World” won the award. “Friend Like Me” and “Prince Ali” were also nominated. Alan Menken and Tim Rice co-wrote all three songs.
Jack Black’s nomination this year for co-writing “Peaches” from The Super Mario Bros. Movie was likewise expected. This is the entertainer’s third Globe nomination.
The nomination for Bruce Springsteen’s “Addicted to Romance” from She Came to Me may come as a mild surprise, but it probably shouldn’t. Springsteen is a two-time winner in this category, for “Streets of Philadelphia” from Philadelphia and “The Wrestler” from the film of the same name.
In the best original score category, the late Robbie Robertson was widely expected to be nominated for his work on Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon. Two of the other contenders are past nominees in this category: Ludwig Göransson, nominated for Oppenheimer, was previously nominated for Black Panther and Tenet. Daniel Pemberton, nominated for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, was previously nominated for Steve Jobs and Motherless Brooklyn.
The awards will be presented on Sunday, Jan. 7, at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. The ceremony, which has yet to name a host, will telecast live on CBS and Paramount+ (5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET).
Here are the snubs and surprises in the 2024 Golden Globes nominations.
