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.
