Golden Globe Nominations 2024: Greta Gerwig's "Barbie" Takes the Lead with 10 Nods, Christopher Nolan's "Oppenheimer" Follows Close Behind

Greta Gerwig's feminist sensation, "Barbie," emerged as a dominant force in the nominations for the 2024 Golden Globe Awards, securing 10 nods and becoming the second most-nominated film in the show's 81-year history, tying with "Cabaret."

Following closely behind was Christopher Nolan's "Oppenheimer," an exploration of J. Robert Oppenheimer and the atomic bomb's development, with eight nominations. Released on the same weekend as "Barbie," this unusual convergence of blockbusters sparked memes and even inspired Halloween costumes, propelling both films at the box office.

HBO's "Succession" led the television nominations with nine nods for its final season. Netflix, with productions like "Maestro" and "The Crown," emerged as the most-nominated media company, securing 28 nominations, followed closely by Warner Bros. Discovery with 27.

This year's Globes introduced changes, expanding each category to six nominees and adding prizes for box office achievements and stand-up comedy performances. Notable films like "Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour" and "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3" gained recognition for their box office success, while comedians such as Trevor Noah and Amy Schumer were acknowledged for their stand-up specials.

Cedric "The Entertainer" and Wilmer Valderrama announced the nominations for the ceremony that is set for January 7, airing on CBS. The show is still seeking a host.
