The entertainment world is abuzz, as nominations for the 78th annual Golden Globe Awards were announced Wednesday.
In a historic first, more than one woman was nominated for best director for a motion picture. Three women — Emerald Fennell (“Promising Young Woman”), Regina King (“One Night in Miami”) and Chloé Zhao (“Nomadland”) — were nominated this year, meaning women also make up the majority of the nominees in the category.
Overall, Netflix came out on top with 42 total nominations, followed by Amazon and Hulu with 10 nominations each.
The Golden Globe Awards will take place Feb. 28 on NBC starting at 5 p.m. PT.
