Apple lands first Golden Globe nominations; Netflix leads field

Apple Inc’s television news drama “The Morning Show” scored three Golden Globe nominations on Monday, putting the iPhone maker in the running for its first major Hollywood awards as a new player in the crowded streaming video market.

Digital video pioneer Netflix Inc dominated the field, landing 17 nominations in TV categories plus 17 more for movies, including leading contenders “Marriage Story” and “The Irishman.”

TV networks, movie studios and streaming services campaign heavily to win Golden Globes and other awards to bring publicity to their shows and help attract new audiences.

The Golden Globe winners, determined by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, will be announced at a red-carpet ceremony in Beverly Hills, California, on Jan. 5.

“The Morning Show,” which streams on the Apple TV+ subscription service that debuted in November, was nominated for best television drama. Stars Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon were named in the best dramatic actress category.
