Guillermo del Toro’s Cold War-era fairytale The Shape of Water swam away with a leading seven nominations from the Golden Globes, while the HBO drama Big Little Lies led the television nominees with six nods.
 
In what’s been seen as a wide-open Oscar race so far, several films followed closely behind The Shape of Water, including Steven Spielberg’s Pentagon Papers drama The Post, with six nominations, including best actress for Meryl Streep and best actor for Tom Hanks. Martin McDonagh’s revenge drama Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri also got a major boost in the nominations announced Monday in Beverly Hills, California, with six nods, including best actress for Frances McDormand and supporting actor for Sam Rockwell.
 
The awards ceremony, traditionally seen as a more populist answer to the Oscars, will celebrate its 75th anniversary in 2018.
 
Eyes were also on how the Hollywood Foreign Press Association would tackle the ongoing sexual harassment scandal - which was spurred on after a series of allegations were made against producer Harvey Weinstein in October. In the months that followed, several other members of the industry such actor Kevin Spacey, director Brett Ratner and others have been accused of sexual misconduct.
 
Many were excited to see how the likes of Transparent and All the Money in the World would perform. A rough cut of the latter was reportedly screened for the HFPA shortly after Scott finished reshooting the film with Christopher Plummer stepping in for Spacey.
 
Ahead of the announcements, the favourites at the Globes this year were Steven Spielberg’s Pentagon Papers drama The Post and Christopher Nolan’s World War II tale Dunkirk. In the television categories, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale and HBO’s Big Little Lies.
 
Meanwhile the HFPA had a wide choice of scandal-free nominees from diverse backgrounds like filmmakers Jordan Peele (Get Out), Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) and Dee Rees (Mudbound).
 
Get Out -- a satire on racism and middle class white guilt -- made perhaps the biggest and most unexpected impact of any movie this year.
 
Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, starring Frances McDormand as a mother seeking to avenge the rape and murder of her daughter, also took the influential audience award at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
 
Steven Spielberg’s The Post, a defence of the free press widely seen as a rebuke to President Donald Trump, was the favourite for many experts to take best film drama.
 
Coco was the comfortable frontrunner for best animated film -- but was marred by Pixar co-founder John Lassater’s recent admission of inappropriate behaviour towards employees.
 
The Golden Globes, televised by NBC, will take place at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, on January 7. The show will be hosted by Seth Meyers.
