In an unprecedented move, the professionally-shot version of Broadway musical Hamilton was deemed eligible for Golden Globe awards this year, with the musical getting nominations for two categories, namely, ‘Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy’ and ‘Best Performance in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy’ for Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Also nominated with Miranda is host James Corden (Cats), for his work in the Ryan Murphy-directed adaptation of Broadway musical, The Prom. Like Hamilton, The Prom is also nominated for ‘Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy’.
Other films that earned nominations are The Father (adapted from the French play Le Pere) for ‘Best Motion Picture – Drama’, as well as nominations for Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Coleman. Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (adapted from a 1982 August Wilson play) also earned nominations for Viola Davis and the late Chadwick Boseman. Hamilton‘s Leslie Odom, Jr. was also nominated for his work in One Night in Miami.
The awards ceremony is slated for February 28, with comediennes Tina Fey and Amy Poehler announced to host.
