Golden Globe nominations 2023: ‘Abbott Elementary’ leads for TV nods

The Golden Globe Awards are back in broadcaster NBC’s good favor. After controversy over racial inequity and questionable journalistic ethics within the Hollywood Foreign Press Association prompted the network to opt out of airing last year’s iteration of the annual awards show,

the ceremony will return in January to its longtime home on the network. There’s even a buzzy host this time around: Emmy-winning comedian Jerrod Carmichael.

The 2023 Globe nominations, announced Monday by father-daughter duo George and Mayan Lopez, saw Martin McDonagh’s “The Banshees of Inisherin” in the clear lead on the film side, 

with eight nods. Broadcast network favorite “Abbott Elementary” led the television pack with five nominations, followed by a five-way tie for second: “The Crown,” “Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story,” “Only Murders in the Building,” “Pam and Tommy” and “The White Lotus” each landed four nods.

Nearly two years ago, exactly a week before the 2021 ceremony, the Los Angeles Times published a landmark investigation into the practices of Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA). 

Perhaps the most startling revelation was that there was not a single Black journalist among the voting body’s 87 members (a number that pales in comparison to the thousands of professionals who vote for the Oscars and Emmys).

That May, NBC announced it would not air the 2022 Globes because “change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right.” 

The network added that it was “hopeful we will be in a position to air the show in January 2023.”
