NEW YORK (AP) — The first awards winners of Hollywood’s opening awards season include Celine Song’s tender relationships drama “Past Lives,” Jonathan Glazer’s moving Holocaust thriller “The Zone of Interest” and Martin Scorsese’s sprawling Osage murders epic “Killers of the Flower” He went to movies like “Moon”.

But there was always a reckoning coming.

“Barbie” and “Oppenheimer”, whose summer excitements combined with a very limited release date, emerged as perhaps the strongest Oscar candidates of the year. When Golden Globes When the selections for their 81st awards were announced on Monday, the scandal-plagued, comeback-seeking Globes threw their full weight behind the twin phenomena of the movie year.

Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie” was nominated for nine categories, ranking second in Globes history. (Only Bob Fosse’s “Cabaret” matched it and Robert Altman’s “Nashville” surpassed it.) The difference over “Oppenheimer” was minimal; Christopher Nolan’s massive J. Robert Oppenheimer biopic received eight nominations.

Although the Globes will split the competition in some categories, keeping “Barbie” in comedy and “Oppenheimer” in drama, the two films will compete head-to-head in many key races. Gerwig or Nolan for best director? Best supporting actor: Ryan Gosling or Robert Downey Jr. ?

Each of them has their own impressive narratives. Nolan, considered by many to be the most talented screen actor of his generation, has never won an Oscar for directing, and his films have never won best picture. Gerwig and “Barbie” are at the forefront of a major shift in Hollywood, which has long been male-dominated. Each film managed to do something extraordinarily original in a film industry dominated by sequels and reboots, earning a total of $2.4 billion in the process.

These discussions will surely continue until the Academy Awards on March 10. But on Monday, the Globes made it clear: Barbenheimer’s second phase has begun.

The central presence of these two films will certainly help the Globes as it seeks stability after years of turmoil. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, known for some of the oddball nominations in years past (remember “Salmon Fishing in Yemen”?) has been disbanded.

A new voting body of nearly 300 people, more than three times the size of the HFPA, selected this year’s nominees. After the Los Angeles Times reported that the press association had no black members, Hollywood boycotted, the 2022 awards went unaired, and now the new Globes, a for-profit owned by Dick Clark Productions and Eldridge Industries, has set up shop at CBS after decades at NBC . . (The ceremony is on January 7.)

Many questions remain. No hosts have been named yet, just a repeat of reported passes from A-listers. But with the Globes’ low bar of respectability, Monday’s nominations did nothing to provoke further snubs. The reception was business as usual: low-key celebrations of the nominees and gentle quips about an awards show with a checkered past.

The Globes expanded their categories from five to six nominees; which meant far less disdain than might have been possible. The morning’s most surprising skip, though, was Blitz Bazawule’s Oprah-produced show-stopping musical “The Color Purple,” which was left out of the best comedy or musical category. (Stars Fantasia Barrino and Danielle Brooks were nominated, though.)

Movies like “The Color Purple,” which has not yet been widely released, have generally had a hard time. Michael Mann’s “Ferrari” and Ava DuVernay’s “Origin” were left out.

Instead, the Globes followed these rumors closely. This included making room for Time Magazine’s Person of the Year Taylor Swift in the new film and box office achievement award. (To be eligible, a film must have grossed $150 million, including $100 million in the U.S., or be a streaming hit.) “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” beat that mark, giving the Globes a chance to boost the star significantly. His broadcast is powered by Swift, a pop star with a growing passion for filmmaking.

This new award follows similar efforts by the Academy Awards, which proposed a “popular film” award in 2018, prompting immediate backlash from academy members who undermined it. Both broadcasts have suffered ratings declines in recent years and have struggled to outpace the series’ box office returns. Last year’s Globes was watched by just 6.3 million people.

But this year, the Globes and Oscars probably don’t need to make any changes to include blockbusters. A number of acclaimed films are joining the fray, including “Killers of the Flower Moon” (7 nominations), Yorgos Lanthimos’ twisted fantasy “Poor Things” (7 nominations), “Past Lives” (5 nominations), Alexander Payne’s “The Holdovers” (3 nominations) – nothing emerged as a clear favorite compared to “Barbie” or “Oppenheimer.”

The road to best picture at the Oscars may not be as smooth as it seems right now. There hasn’t been a best picture winner to gross more than $100 million domestically since Ben Affleck’s “Argo” (2012). In recent years, so-called saviors of cinema such as “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Avatar: The Way of Water” have been nominated for Hollywood’s biggest award, while “Everything, Everywhere, All at the Same Time” and “Everything, Everywhere, All at the Same Time” have been nominated for Hollywood’s biggest award. smaller, independently produced films “CODA” triumphed.

But Monday’s nominations show that “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer” are the movies to beat this year. Now choose your color palette.
