These are your queer Golden Globe noms!
With out comedian Jerrod Carmichael hosting, this year's Golden Globes were already sure to be a gay affair, but now that we know the nominees for the 2023 awards, we know it's going to be even gayer.
There were a lot of first-time nominees this year, including many of the queer nominees. And after all the controversy around the Globes in the last few years, some new faces are welcome.
Overall, The Banshees of Inishirin led all movies with eight nominations, with Everything Everywhere All At Once coming in next with six nominations. On the TV side, Abbot Elementary led all shows with five nominations. Only Murders in the Building, The Crown, Pam & Tommy, The White Lotus, and Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story all got four nominations.
The 80th Annual Golden Globes will air January 10 on NBC.
