The Golden Globes will not be lacking Australian star power with Russell Crowe, Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie, Cate Blanchett and Toni Collette picking up nominations in 2020!
Crowe, who has not had a major Hollywood awards nod for more than a decade, was nominated on Monday for portraying controversial Fox News boss Roger Ailes in the TV mini-series The Loudest Voice.
Crowe will compete against Sacha Baron Cohen (The Spy), Sam Rockwell (Fosse/Verdon), Christopher Abbott (Catch-22) and Jared Harris (Chernobyl) in the limited series or TV movie best actor category.
Kidman received her nomination for the second series of Big Little Lies. Kidman cleaned up on the awards show circuit two years ago for her complex and challenging performance as Celeste Wright in the first season of Big Little Lies, and she was rewarded again on Monday for season two of the TV series based on Australian author Liane Moriarty’s novel.
Robbie’s pursuit of an Oscar remains on track with her nod for best supporting actress in the movie Bombshell, and Blanchett, nominated for best actress in a musical or comedy movie for Where’d You Go, Bernadette, is up against Emma Thompson (Late Night), Beanie Feldstein (Booksmart), Awkwafina (The Farewell) and Ana De Armas (Knives Out).
Collette, nominated in the supporting actress in a TV series or movie category for Unbelievable, also faces star-studded competition with Meryl Streep (Big Little Lies), Patricia Arquette (The Act), Helena Bonham Carter (The Crown) and Emily Watson (Chernobyl) receiving nods.
The streaming service Netflix and the film Marriage Story were the overall winners at the nomination ceremony. Netflix dominated Hollywood’s traditional movie studios with 17 nominations.
The Globes ceremony will be held in Beverly Hills on January 5.
