The 2021 Golden Globe Awards will air later this month, and the nominees were finally announced on Wednesday morning by Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P. Henson, who hosted the nominations presentation that was broadcast on TODAY. The Golden Globe Awards, established by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, celebrate the best in both movies and television across drama, musicals, comedies, and limited series categories. 

Even though theatrical releases were not a thing for most of 2020, there was still a lot to celebrate with this year's nominees. The voting body of the HFPA has little to no crossover with the Motion Picture Academy, but many still consider the Golden Globes to be an indicator of what movies will be mentioned in the Oscars shortlist.

Mank leads the pack on the movie side with six nominations, followed by The Trial of the Chicago 7. As for TV, The Crown leads with six nominations; Schitt's Creek is right behind it at five. Netflix dominated both TV and movies, picking up 20 total nominations on the TV side and 22 for movies. 

Three female directors were recognized, the most in any single year: Emerald Fennell for Promising Young Woman, Regina King for One Night in Miami, and Chloé Zhao for Nomadland. Sacha Baron Cohen tied a record for the most nominated actor in a single year when he picked up three nominations, one as a producer on Borat Subsequent Moviefilm and two for his movie performances (in both Borat and The Trial of the Chicago 7).

Both Olivia Colman and Anya Taylor-Joy scored nominations for their work in both TV and film. And Chadwick Boseman was posthumously recognized for his performance in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom
