Whoops.

The 73rd annual Golden Globes nominations are out, which means a lot of jumping up and down over how many Aussies were nominated (spoiler alert: it’s three – Cate Blanchett for her performance in Carol, George Miller for directing Mad Max: Fury Road, which is also up for best dramatic picture, and Ben Mendelsohn for his role in Bloodline) and how streaming services are destroying the traditional networks (Netflix led the TV nominations with eight).

As for the annual outcry over how diverse the nominees are, the Globes were off to a fine start in fending off criticism with a healthy sprinkle of colour in a variety of categories, including Viola Davis (How to Get Away With Murder), Aziz Ansari (Master of None) and Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin).

There were even a couple of actors in transgender roles up for nominations – Jeffrey Tambor for Transparent and Eddie Redmayne in The Danish Girl, though that film took some heat for not hiring an actual transgender person to play the artist Lili Elbe.

Unfortunately, all anyone could talk about was the fact that the official Golden Globes Twitter account confused Gina Rodriguez and America Ferrera, who was actually helping announce the nominees.

Twice!

The “all Latina actresses don’t look alike” backlash began and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which holds the awards every year, apologised.

But now that we’ve gotten all that awkwardness out of the way, all we have to do is wait for the even more intense awkwardness of the actual ceremony, hosted by Ricky Gervais on January 10.
