The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has unveiled the full list of nominees for the 78th annual Golden Globes Awards, and unsurprisingly, streaming companies have garnered much of the attention.

Netflix, in particular, nabbed the most nominations with a total of 42, spanning films like Mank and The Trial of the Chicago 7 and series like The Queen’s Gambit and The Crown. Some of the streamer’s most notable nominations:

Amazon Prime Video, meanwhile, picked up 10 nominations, including:

  • Maria Bakalova (Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm) — Best Actress in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy
  • Regina King (One Night in Miami) — Best Director — Motion Picture

Disney+ also picked up a single nomination for The Mandalorian for Best Motion Picture — Drama.

Outside of streaming services, CBC’s beloved Canadian comedy series Schitt’s Creek scored five nominations, including one for Best Television Series — Musical or Comedy. Given the series’ record success at the Emmys last year, it’s likely that it will pick up at least a few Globes as well.
