Streep nominated for record-breaking Golden Globe

Meryl broke her own record this morning by being nominated for her 33rd Golden Globe (she has won eight). The performance of course was for her supporting turn as Loretta Durkin in the comedy series Only Murders in the Building. Streep was joined by the three main cast members in being nominated (all in lead), Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez. The show was also recognized in the Best Television Series Musical or Comedy category, for a total of five noms, second only to HBO's Succession, which landed a whopping nine. 

The rest of the nominees in Meryl's category are as follows:

Elizabeth Debicki (The Crown
Abby Elliott (The Bear
Christina Ricci (Yellowjackets
J. Smith-Cameron (Succession
Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso)

I have not seen Elliot or Ricci's performances, but I'd honestly be fine with any of the other three winning, as I think they're all brilliant. I love Succession so much and Smith-Cameron's character, Gerri, that I kind of have a soft spot for her. But Elizabeth Debicki was also SO spot on as Princess Diana in this last season of The Crown. And speaking of last seasons, even though the third and final season of Ted Lasso wasn't as critically acclaimed as the previous two, it could be a nice sort of cherry on the top of a great series for Hannah Waddingham (I suppose not unlike for Smith-Cameron). You never know though, maybe Meryl will surprise us and come away with the win. 

The Globes ceremony will be telecast on CBS and Paramount+ on Sunday, Jan 7. The full list of nominees can be seen here


  1. Meryl is being heavily favored to win actually

    1. Someone besides Ray Richmond at Gold Derby saying that?

    2. Adding that I even compared the Gold Derby predictions for BLL vs now and in 2020 editors and experts were heavily favoring Helena Bonham Carter for The Crown (even though Patricia Arquette ultimately won) whereas now they are favoring Meryl

    3. And it makes sense given how much more well received and beloved her performance in OMITB is

    4. Also, they're favoring her to win Critics Choice too

  2. Kind of difficult not seeing Elizabeth Debicki winning here…

  3. While it would be great to see Meryl with a 9th Globe it would be even sweeter to see that 4th Emmy IMO. I believe they have specific categories there too so not all TV supporting actresses have to compete together.

  4. she'll win a Globe and Grammy (finally) in 2024

  5. Hello, does anyone know how I can access the entire speech by Meryl during her Academy Gala award? Thanks
