Celebrating the cinema after a complicated 2020. This is the challenge that will have to be taken up the 78th Golden Globes, to be held on February 28, 2021 Los Angeles. Considered as the hallway to the Oscars, the evening will, as usual, be closely scrutinized by moviegoers and film professionals alike as it is a good indicator of who will win the golden statuettes. The list of nominations at the Golden Globes 2021 has just been disclosed and revealed as well as the streaming platforms come out winners: indeed, the two Netflix films “Mank” and “The Chicago Seven”, brilliantly directed by David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin are racing in head, with six and five citations respectively. As for the series, “The Crown” or “Ozark” should also leave with many trophies.

Sia, Celeste, HER and Trent Reznor in competition

And like every year, music will be the honor of the next Golden Globes ceremony. And mainly thanks to Sia. His movie “Music”, which will not be released until February 12 on streaming platforms, has two nominations, including the prestigious one for Best Musical or Comedy Film. The feature film made by the Australian star will notably face “Hamilton” (a recording of the musical of the same name), “The Prom”, “Palm Springs” and … “Borat 2”! For her part, Kate Hudson is competing as Outstanding Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, for his role of Zu, where she will compete against Rosamund Pike, Anya Taylor-Joy, Michelle Pfeiffer and Maria Bakalova. Note that Sia has already been nominated twice at the Golden Globes for the songs “Bound to You” (2010) and “Opportunity” (2015), but she had not won the awards.

Discover the trailer for “Music”, the film by Sia:

On the film score side, Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross double down with their “Mank” soundtracks and “Drunk”, competing against those of “Tenet”, “The Midnight Sky” and “News of the World”. Finally, the Best Original Song category emphasizes more confidential titles and artists, in contrast to Taylor Swift, Elton john and Beyonc appointed last year. Thus, we find in competition Celeste and Daniel Pemberton for “Hear My Voice” (“The seven of Chicago”), HER competing with “Fight for You” for “Judas and the Black Messiah”, Leslie Odom Jr. and Sam Ashworth for “Speak Now” (shot from the movie “One Night In Miami”) or Laura Pausini, surrounded by Diane Warren and Niccol Agliardi, for Io Si (Seen), who can be heard in the Italian film “Life in front of you”.
