Netflix 2021 Golden Globe and SAG Award nominee billboards...

Da 5 Bloods SAG Award nominee billboard
Today it's also time for the annual Golden Globes Awards. It's usually described as Hollywood's biggest party, but the ongoing pandemic scuppered those plans and the revelation that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has had no black members for twenty years slightly mars the proceedings (and let's say nothing of the lavish Emily in Paris set visit scandal that may have led to the show's two surprise nominations).

With that all being said let's not take away from Netflix's accomplishment this year by leading the pack with 42 Golden Globe nods for its shows and movies this year, plus 30 Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations and a staggering 72 Critics' Choice Awards nominations.

Spike Lee's latest film, Da 5 Bloods, about a group of Vietnam veterans who return to the country to recover their fallen squad leader's remains and a hidden treasure was overlooked by the HFPA, but did garner three SAG Award nominations (including for stunt and cast ensembles and for Supporting Actor for Chadwick Boseman) and six Critics's Choice nods.
