The 2024 Golden Globe nominees have been announced, with Barbie, Oppenheimer and Succession topping the list of award contenders.

Greta Gerwig's Barbie leads with nine nominations. It has been put forward for best picture musical or comedy and has also received acting nominations for Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling and three of the film's original songs.

The summer blockbuster is closely followed by Oppenheimer, which scored eight nominations, including best picture drama. Actors Cillian Murphy, Robert Downey Jr and Emily Blunt have also been given a nod.

In television, Succession dominates with nine nominations, including best performance by an actor in a drama television series category. Three of the show's stars, Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin and Jeremy Strong, are up for awards.

The Golden Globe ceremony, which traditionally marks the start of Hollywood's awards season, recognises achievement in both film and television, with accolades for best comedy/musical and drama. Next year there will be two new categories: cinematic and box office achievement and best stand-up comedian on television.

Over the past few years, the ceremony has been plagued with scandal, but for 2024 the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has been dissolved and revamped as the Golden Globes Foundation, a non-profit organisation with a more diverse voting body.

Cedric the Entertainer and Wilmer Valderrama announced the initial wave of nominees via live stream on the CBS website on Monday.

What's new for the 2024 Golden Globes?

The 81st Golden Globe Awards will be the first major broadcast of the season, with a new home on CBS. While to audiences it might look similar on the surface, the show has had a tumultuous few years behind the scenes following a bombshell story in the Los Angeles Times. The 2021 report found that there were no black members in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which votes on the awards.

Stars and studios boycotted the Globes and NBC refused to air it in 2022 as a result. After the group added journalists of colour to its ranks and instituted other reforms to address ethical concerns, the show came back in January 2023 in a one-year probationary agreement with NBC. The network did not opt to renew.

In June, billionaire Todd Boehly was granted approval to dissolve the HFPA and reinvent the Golden Globes as a for-profit organisation.

In mid-November, CBS announced that it would air the ceremony on the network on January 7. The awards will also be streamed on Paramount+.

Who votes for the Golden Globes?

The Golden Globes Foundation's group nominating and voting for the awards is now made up of a more diverse group of over 300 people from around the world.
