Golden Globes: Ryan Reynolds, Tom Hiddleston, Mandy Moore Among First-Time Nominees

Monday morning’s Golden Globe nominations announcement was wonderful news for a slew of artists who were recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for the first time.

Major film acting contenders like Lily Collins (“Rules Don’t Apply”), Joel Edgerton and co-star Ruth Negga (“Loving”), Isabelle Huppert (“Elle”), Ryan Reynolds (“Deadpool”), and Hailee Steinfeld (“The Edge of Seventeen”) were all welcomed into the club this year.

They were joined by supporting contenders Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris (“Moonlight”), Simon Helberg (“Florence Foster Jenkins”), Dev Patel (“Lion”), and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (“Nocturnal Animals”).

Directors who landed their first notices include Damien Chazelle (“La La Land”), Tom Ford (“Nocturnal Animals”), and Barry Jenkins (“Moonlight”), while in the music realm, artists such as Iggy Pop (“Gold”) and Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Moana”) can now call themselves Golden Globe nominees.

On the television side, there were fewer first-timers in the drama and comedy series categories as HFPA members, in most instances, hued close to previous nominees. “The Americans” star Matthew Rhys joined the club, however, as did “The Crown’s” Claire Foy.

Nominees in the supporting actress TV field are all new to the Globes party: Olivia Colman (“The Night Manager”), Lena Headey (“Game of Thrones”), Chrissy Metz and Mandy Moore (“This Is Us”), and Thandie Newton (“Westworld”).

And also picking up their first nominations from the group were Riz Ahmed (“The Night Of”), Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross (“Black-ish”), Sterling K. Brown and Courtney B. Vance (“The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”), Donald Glover (“Atlanta”), Tom Hiddleston (“The Night Manager”), Riley Keough (“The Girlfriend Experience”), Issa Rae (“Insecure”) and Charlotte Rampling (“London Spy”).

Which of these first-time nominees could become first-time winners? Find out at the 74th annual Golden Globes on Jan. 8.
