Sci-fi and Golden Globes 2017

I love to write science fiction, in part because I love to read and watch science fiction.  So I’m always excited to see sci-fi related television shows or movies and cast members nominated for major television or movie awards.  Today, the 2017 Golden Globes nominees were announced.  Below are some of the sci-fi and fantasy nominations that I noticed this morning, though I apologize if I missed a few.  Congratulations to all the people involved in these sci-fi and fantasy productions!

Arrival was nominated for Best Original Score – Motion Picture, with Amy Adams (Arrival) nominated for Best Performance By an Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama.

Westworld got a nomination for Best Television Series, Drama.  Also, Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld, Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series, Drama)  and Thandie Newton (Westworld, Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Actress in a Series, Limited Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television) received nominations.

Some might consider Mr. Robot as sci-fi, but I think it’s more of a thriller/drama.  Rami Malek (Mr. Robot) was nominated for Best Performance By an Actor in a Television Series, Drama.  Christian Slater (Mr. Robot) was nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television

Closer to fantasy, Stranger Things was nominated for Best Television Series, Drama.  Winona Ryder also received a nomination for Stranger Things, Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series, Drama.

There were some fantasy television show nominations as well.  Game of Thrones got a nom for Best Television Series, Drama.  Also, Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) received nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television.   Deadpool was nominated for Best Motion Picture, Musical, or Comedy.  Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) was nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical, or Comedy.  Caitriona Balfe (Outlander) was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series, Drama.
