The wait is finally over. The 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards nominations have been announced.

The top contenders in the motion picture drama category include “The Father,” “Mank,” “Nomadland,” “Promising Young Woman” and “The Trial of the Chicago 7.” In the musical or comedy category, “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm,” “Hamilton,” “Palm Springs,” “Music” and “The Prom” will duke it out.

The top TV categories include “Emily in Paris,” “The Flight Attendant,” “The Great,” “Schitt’s Creek” and “Ted Lasso” in the musical or comedy field; while “The Crown,” “Lovecraft Country,” “The Mandalorian,” “Ozark” and “Ratched” lead the way in the drama category.

Netflix dominated the competition with 42 total nominations for its movies and shows, including “Mank,” “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” “The Queen’s Gambit” and “The Crown.” Amazon, home to “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” and “Small Axe,” followed with 10 nods, while Hulu also picked up 10 nominations for fare like “Normal People” and “Palm Springs.”

After being historically shut out of the director category, female filmmakers have the majority in the race. Emerald Fennell (“Promising Young Woman”), Regina King (“One Night in Miami”) and Chloé Zhao (“Nomadland”) all got nods, alongside David Fincher (“Mank”) and Aaron Sorkin (“The Trial of the Chicago 7”)
