Golden Globe nominations: Massive hit The Undoing scoops up nods but Matilda left out


The Undoing was one of the biggest hits during lockdown 2020.

And the 78th Golden Globes – which announced its nominations on Wednesday on the Today show – showed the limited series plenty of love.

Several of the stars from the HBO project were recognized and the show itself was singled out as well.

But there was no recognition for Matilda de Angelis from Italy who played the stunning murdered mom Elena Alves.

She stood out not only for her great looks but also her obsessive, yearning nature and how she could handle a scene against veteran Kidman.

The star managed to stare down Nicole’s Grace Fraser while she was fully nude in a gym and the Aussie vent nearly trembling with intimidation.

Also left off the list was Nicole’s best friend, the sensible blonde lawyer Sylvia Steinetz played by Lily Rabe.

And Grant’s lawyer Hayley Fitzgerald, played by Noma Dunezweni, could also have landed a nod as her performance was called riveting by critics. 

The ceremony was pushed back due to the global coronavirus pandemic.

The nominees were announced by Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P Henson on The Today Show, with Sacha Baron Cohen up for several awards.  

Until now there have only been five women ever nominated for best director, but the 2021 ceremony made history with three women nominated – the first time more than one has been shortlisted in a year.

Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman), Regina King (One Night in Miami) and Chloé Zhao (Nomadland) bagged nominated this year alongside  David Fincher (Mank) and Aaron Sorkin (The Trial of the Chicago 7).  

The nominations were revealed ahead of the virtual awards ceremony that will take place on February 28 with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler co-hosting the show virtually from opposite coasts.

Prior to the announcement, it was revealed that Jane Fonda will be honoured with the Cecil B. deMille Award at the ceremony, which is the equivalent to a lifetime achievement award that will celebrate her 60-year career.

As the trophy is given for ‘outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment,’ Fonda is a more than worthy recipient due to her career in film, television and and being at the forefront of social issues over six decades. 

HFPA president Ali Sar said in a statement: ‘Her undeniable talent has gained her the highest level of recognition, and while her professional life has taken many turns, her unwavering commitment to evoking change has remained.’ 

Fonda made her professional debut in 1960 on Broadway and on screen, and she went on to become one of the biggest movie stars of the 1960s and 1970s with films like 1968’s Barbarella and 1971’s Klute.

She is also one of the most decorated actresses in Golden Globes history as she has earned 15 nominations throughout her career and has won seven including in 1962 for Tall Story, 1972 for Klute, 1978 for Julia, and 1979 for Coming Home. 

The actress also won the now retired Henrietta Award for World Film Favorite three times in 1973, 1979, and 1980.

Previous recipients of the Cecil B. deMille awards include Oprah Winfrey, Meryl Streep, Sophia Loren, Tom Hanks and Robert De Niro.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are set to co-host the show virtually from opposite coasts on February 28, a first for the awards show.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, NBC and Dick Clark Productions have had to adjust the ceremony due to COVID-19 precautions.

Typically, the Globes officially kick off Awards season in Hollywood and are held annually on one of the first Sundays in January. 

According to Variety, Tina will broadcast from atop New York City’s Rockefeller Center, in the Rainbow Room, while Amy will fulfil her co-hosting duties from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, where the awards show is usually held.

It’s still unclear whether presenters and winners will make in-person appearances or telecast from home, as recent awards shows have done both amid the pandemic.  

With two locations, this year’s event has the potential to feature more big names, while letting its co-hosts remain close to home.  

The Baby Mama co-stars are making their return to the Golden Globes stage, after they hosted together three years in a row, from 2013 to 2015.

Satchel and Jackson Lee, children of three-time Golden Globe nominated filmmaker Spike Lee and producer/philanthropist Tonya Lewis Lee, will serve as the 2021 Golden Globe Ambassadors. 

Although the awards show usually takes place in January, this year’s event has been postponed due to the pandemic. 

The Golden Globes will air in the time slot recently made available after the Oscars were also postponed because of the COVID-19 crisis from February 28 to April 25. 

Last year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, who organise the annual ceremony, met via Zoom to discuss the new date of the 93rd Oscars.

‘For over a century, movies have played an important role in comforting, inspiring, and entertaining us during the darkest of times,’ began a statement from Academy president David Rubin and CEO Dawn Hudson.

‘They certainly have this year. Our hope, in extending the eligibility period and our Awards date, is to provide the flexibility filmmakers need to finish and release their films without being penalized for something beyond anyone’s control.’

She added, ‘This coming Oscars and the opening of our new museum will mark an historic moment, gathering movie fans around the world to unite through cinema.’

The rules have also changed, as a feature film must have been released between January 1, 2020, and February 28, 2021 to be considered.

The Golden Globes are voted by journalists who make up the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.  

The 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards will air live Sunday, February 28 at 8pm ET/5pm PT on NBC.
