Golden Globe noms

Like others, I don’t care for this award ceremony nor do I accredit it much value, but it’s heartening to see Promising Young Woman featured so prominently, and even more surprisingly within the Drama vs Comedy categories. Not that it isn’t a drama, but for an awards show that seems to default any film with a single laugh into the comedy sectors, it’s admirable to see that they’ve considered its purpose beneath the satire, because the film- in many ways- is most glaringly a (at times very) dark comedy.

The studio decides what category their films compete in, not the Globes, so that’s more a strategic thing from them

Interesting, that makes a whole lot more sense than the Globes suddenly changing their approach, or being worthy of praise

Wouldn't placing Promising Young Woman in Comedy be more beneficial for the studio, since it doesn't have to compete with Chicago 7 and Nomadland and has a much bigger shot at victory? (Though, considering how well it's doing, I wouldn't put it past the Globes to do their own thing and give it Drama Film)

Meaning the Globes in general, or the acknowledgment of 2020 as a year of cinema?

Globes, but now that you mention it, both. Unless films like Promising Young Woman, that would never get nominated in a "normal" year, win- in which case I'm down. But the obliviously-uneven Nomadland will probably win everything.

Not to derail the thread, but where did you guys see Nomadland? I've been searching for it since my partner mentioned it a few months ago. And unlike Capernaum, there is nowhere to even purchase it even when renting is unavailable. Pretty Young Woman is another that can only be purchased but not rented/streamed, but at least it is available in some capacity.*

Three out of the five Best Director nominees are women, so that's something.
