The nominations for the 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards left some fans shocked on Wednesday morning (Feb. 3) and others less than surprised. Taraji P Henson and Sarah Jessica Parker unveiled the nominees in a video announcement ahead of the upcoming semi-virtual ceremony, which will take place on Feb. 28.

Fans were glad to see Chadwick Boseman receive a posthumous honor for Best Actor in a Motion Picture-Drama and that Regina King’s feature film directorial debut One Night in Miami landed her a nod for Best Director. However, others were disappointed to see Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods, Jurnee Smollett and Jonathan Majors’ performances in “Lovecraft Country” and Judas and the Black Messiah director Shaka King be completely left out.

Furthermore, fans were also hoping that Zendaya’s performance in Malcolm & Marie, the Shonda Rhymes-produced “Bridgerton” and Chris Rock’s starring role on “Fargo” would have received some kind of recognition.

However, one bright spot this year is the female-dominated Best Director category, which has historically been male-slanted. Besides King, directors Emerald Fennell and Chloé Zhao were also nominated, as well as David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin.

Netflix was once again a heavy contender among this year’s nominees, with a total of 42 nods going to the likes of Mank, The Trial of the Chicago 7, “The Queen’s Gambit, “The Crown” and more. On the other end, Amazon and Hulu also picked up 10 nominations each.

Other nominees include Don Cheadle, Viola Davis, “Black Monday,” Promising Young Woman, Hamilton, Leslie Odom Jr., “Ozark” and more. See the complete list below.

The Golden Globes will broadcast at 5 p.m. PST on NBC with actresses Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returning as co-hosts.
