2021 Golden Globes: ‘Lovecraft Country’ & ‘The Mandalorian’ earn best series nominations

The 2021 Golden Globes join the list of award organizations finally starting to recognize great genre television.

After making a huge splash at the 2020 Emmys, genre television has once again proven too good for the critics to ignore. This time it’s the 2021 Golden Globes, which nominated The Mandalorian (Disney+) and Lovecraft Country (HBO) for Best Dramatic Television Series.

The Golden Globes, which are selected by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, have typically ignored genre works, especially science fiction. While there’s still plenty that they missed (like Jurnee Smollett getting a Best Actress nomination), seeing unabashedly sci-fi/fantasy shows get Best Series nominations is a huge step forward.

Mandalorian composer Ludwig Göransson also received a Best Original Score nomination for his work on Tenet.

The 78th Annual Golden Globes will be announced on February 28. Check out the full list of nominee’s below:
