Eddie Murphy, Beyoncé and Cynthia Erivo scored nominations for the 2020 Golden Globes.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced their selections for the best TV and film productions and performances on Monday, Dec. 9. Netflix continued to dominate the award landscape with 17 total nominations followed by HBO with 15 and Hulu with 5.

Dolemite Is My Name, the story of real-life legend Rudy Ray Moore, a comedy and rap pioneer, earned two nominations. The first was a nod for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. The second would come via Murphy being nominated in the Best Actor – Musical or Comedy category.

Cynthia Erivo received a nomination for her performance in the title role in Harriet with Disney’s The Lion King scoring a nomination for Best Motion Picture – Animated. Additionally, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter received a nomination for Best Original Song. Multihyphenate Billy Porter continued his nomination streak with a nod for his role on the FX series “Pose.”

Noticeably missing from the 2020 nominations was acclaimed Netflix series “When They See Us.” Despite Jharrel Jerome winning the 2019 Emmy for lead actor, the series as a whole was shut out of contention. Others that were expected to receive nominations but came up short include: Lupita Nyong’o (Us), Queen and Slim, and Avengers: Endgame.

The Golden Globe Awards will take place on Jan. 5, 2020, in Los Angeles.
