‘Get Out’ and ‘The Shape of Water’ Scare Up Golden Globes Nominations

Horror continues to get mainstream recognition during its standout year.

We recently reported that Jordan Peele’s Get Out was being *considered* for Golden Globes nominations, an exciting bit of news that made headlines due to the fact that it was up for contention in the “Comedy/Musical” category. A strange, ill-fitting genre for the film, to say the least, but all that really matters was that it was being considered.

Today we’re happy to report, now that the 2018 Golden Globes nominees have been officially announced, that Get Out indeed has been nominated for Best Comedy/Musical! Star Daniel Kaluuya was also nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture: Comedy or Musical.

Additionally, Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water landed a nomination for Best Motion Picture: Drama, while also receiving a handful of other nominations…

  • Best Director – Guillermo del Toro
  • Best Performance by an Actress – Sally Hawkins
  • Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role – Octavia Spencer
  • Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role – Richard Jenkins
  • Best Screenplay – Guillermo del Toro & Vanessa Taylor
  • Best Original Score – Alexandre Desplat

Also of note, “Stranger Things” was nominated for Best Television Series: Drama, while star David Harbour was nominated for Best Supporting Role in a TV Series.

Finally, Kyle MacLachlan has received a nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for TV, for his work on “Twin Peaks”!

    That makes no sense whatsoever. Sure the film used elements of exaggeration and satire to go along with its levity, but it is still very much a horror/thriller film. To say otherwise makes you sound like a complete dumbass.

      I think it’s the people who allow the movie to be put in that category are the real dumbasses here because the studio behind the movie are trying to be clever pushing it in this genre as they know damn well it wouldn’t stand chance in the Drama category

    Nothing for IT …..and deservedly so .
    And the highly amusing song and dance numbers were the only things I really enjoyed about Get Out :-).

      Yeah I’m in the minority but I thought Get Out was bad. The use of hypnosis was hilarious. It wasn’t tense. It had laugh out loud moments that were suppose to be scary. I’d give it 3/10 only because main actor was good… he was just in a ridiculous movie.

        I wasn’t overly impressed especially after all the hype …..it was just a Stepford Wives retread with the race issue thrown in .

          for the most part i liked GET OUT but the reveal of what they were doing to the black people was COMPLETELY idiotic. i also loved seeing the villains taken down. that part was satisfying and awesome. 🙂

            It was OK ….nothing more .
            Good performances but it choked on it’s own hype and the reveal was fucking preposterous !!

      Yeah Simon ‘Get Out’ definitely gave other musicals in the past like ‘Sweeney Todd’ and ‘Les Miserables’ a serious run for their money!

      • Simon Allen

    • DukeStKing

    Best Comedy/Musical?!?! What the fuck! What movie were they watching? I don’t remember it being funny or even close to ‘Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street’!

    • Simon Allen

      • Necro
