Sony Pictures had the next most nominations with eight movies while Disney and Warner Bros. had six each. For the television networks, HBO was close behind with 15 nominations. Hulu and Amazon Prime Video had five each.

Golden Globe nominations announcement started with president Lorenzo Soria giving a brief introduction of the presenters (Dakota Fanning, Susan Kelechi Watson and Tim Allen) and the Golden Globe Ambassadors, Dylan and Paris Brosnan. Fanning plays "Squeaky" Fromme in Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood" which got five nominations: Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy for Leonardo DiCaprio, Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture for Brad Pitt, Best Director and Best Screenplay for Quentin Tarantino. 

Watson, probably best known for her role as Beth Pearson in "This Is Us," plays Andrea Vogel, the wife of the protagonist in "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood." Sterling K. Brown, who plays her husband in "This Is Us," won a Golden Globe last year, but "This Is Us" was not nominated this year. "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood" did receive a Golden Globe nomination for Tom Hanks in Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture. 

Tim Allen had previously won a Best Actor Golden Globe in 1995 for his television comedy series, "Home Improvement." 

The buzz in the room was there weren't many surprises. Michael Douglas received his 10th Golden Globe nomination on his father's 103rd birthday; last year Michael won for the same role he's nominated for this year in Netflix's "The Kominsky Method." Cousins Randy and Thomas Newman are nominated in the same category: Best Original Score; Randy for "Marriage Story" and Thomas for "1917." Neither Randy nor Thomas have won a Golden Globe for either for Best Song or Best Original Score. Below is the full list of nominations.
