Hey, as long as it’s being considered, right?
When it comes to the annual Golden Globes, nominated films are broken up into two categories: “Drama” and “Musical or Comedy.” The Jordan Peele-directed Get Out, unquestionably a horror film (or a “social thriller,” if you insist), may seem most suited for the “Drama” category, but it won’t be in that category if it indeed does get nominated.
As reported by Variety Awards Editor Kristopher Tapley, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association met today to determine categories, and while there was some disagreement, this year’s Get Out has officially been placed in the “Comedy” category.
Strange, to be sure, but let’s not forget that Ridley Scott’s The Martian won “Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical” back in 2016. So. Yeah.
Again, the good news here is that Get Out is being considered at all, which certainly could result in the film being nominated in at least one category. We’ll know for sure when nominations for the 75th annual Golden Globes are announced on December 11.
Next year’s show takes place on January 8, 2018.
