Chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the Golden Globe nominations are often viewed as a harbinger of the Oscar® race.

The live awards show will air on February 28 at 8 PM EST/5 PM PST on NBC.

Looking forward to the Academy Awards®, Entertainment Weekly’s award guru David Canfield exclaims, “Our headline: Promising Young Woman asserts itself as an across-the-board player, making good on months of great buzz.” In addition to Promising Young Woman being nominated for Best Motion Picture – Drama, Emerald Fennell was nominated for Best Director – Motion Picture and Best Screenplay – Motion Picture.

It’s impossible to truly express the depth of my gratitude without swearing so I’d better stop here.” Star Carey Mulligan said, “Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for this recognition. Emerald Fennell’s vision for Promising Young Woman was so unique and uncompromising. She is one of the most talented filmmakers I've ever worked with. I'm so incredibly grateful she came to me with this project and I was thrilled to see her recognized alongside Chloe Zhao and Regina King this morning.
