The Irishman and Marriage Story help Netflix lead Golden Globe nominations

Marriage Story scored six nominations, while The Irishman landed five.

Netflix led the 2020 Golden Globe nominations on Monday, with its films The Irishman and Marriage Story contributing to the streaming service earning a staggering 34 nods.

Marriage Story topped the list with six nominations - including nods for Scarlett Johansson, Adam Driver, and Laura Dern - while Martin Scorsese's The Irishman was hot on its tail with five. Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, meanwhile, was nominated for four gongs.

Both Scorsese's mob drama and Tarantino's star-studded movie epic earned nominations for their directors, while The Irishman is up for the Best Picture - Drama gong and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will battle it out for the Best Picture - Comedy/Musical prize.

The Irishman stars Al Pacino and Joe Pesci are both nominated for the Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture category, alongside Once Upon a Time in Hollywood's Brad Pitt, while the Netflix film's screenplay by Steven Zaillian is also up for an award - but will have to beat Tarantino to take home that gong.

Leonardo DiCaprio will battle it out for the Best Actor - Comedy/Musical for his role in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, against Daniel Craig for Knives Out, Roman Griffin Davis for Jojo Rabbit, Taron Egerton for Rocketman, and Eddie Murphy for Dolemite Is My Name.

Renee Zellweger earned herself a nod in the Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama category for her role as Judy Garland in Judy, while Saoirse Ronan is nominated for Little Women, Charlize Theron for Bombshell, and British actress Cynthia Erivo for Harriet.

Christian Bale received a nod in the Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama category for Ford v Ferrari, opposite Antonio Banderas for Pain and Glory, Joaquin Phoenix for Joker, Jonathan Pryce for The Two Popes, and Driver for Marriage Story.

Cate Blanchett is up for the Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical/Comedy prize for her role in Where'd You Go Bernadette, alongside Awkwafina for The Farewell, Ana de Armas for Knives Out, Beanie Feldstein for Booksmart, and Emma Thompson for Late Night.

Beyonce and Taylor Swift will be fighting for the Original Song award, thanks to their respective tunes Spirit, from The Lion King, and Beautiful Ghosts, from Cats. They also have tough competition from Frozen II ballad Into the Unknown, Stand Up from Harriet - written and performed by its lead actress Erivo - and (I'm Gonna) Love Me Again from Rocketman.

Over on the television front, Sacha Baron Cohen is up for the TV Movie or Limited Series Actor gong for his role in The Spy, alongside Russell Crowe for The Loudest Voice, Jared Harris for Chernobyl, Sam Rockwell for Fosse/Verdon, and Christopher Abbot for Catch-22. Rockwell's Fosse/Verdon co-star Michelle Williams is nominated in the TV Movie or Limited Series Actress category for her role in the series but will have to beat Helen Mirren for Catherine the Great, Joey King for The Act, and Kaitlyn Dever and Merritt Wever for Netflix series Unbelievable.

British stars were also out in force in the nominations list, with Jodie Comer and Killing Eve nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Drama and Best Television Series - Drama, respectively. The Crown also saw Olivia Colman, Helena Bonham Carter, and Tobias Menzies nominated.

And Phoebe Waller-Bridge continued her huge success with her series Fleabag being nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy, Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy, and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for Andrew Scott.

The nominations were announced by Tim Allen, Dakota Fanning, and Susan Kelechi Watson at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Monday morning.
