The nominations for the 77th Golden Globe Awards are in and while we would love to energetically comb through a list of surprises, triumphs, and real risk takers, this year’s round-up is a solid map of the safest routes throughout film and television. Sure, the Hollywood Foreign Press did manage to include a few of our favorites such as Parasite, Pose, and Marriage Story, but overall, there are a few curious trends that are certainly raising a few eyebrows.

Least surprising of the bunch: Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story leads this year’s film nominations with six in total. Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman follows closely behind with five, confirming that Netflix is currently leading the streaming era in terms of both quality and quantity. Once Upon A Time In Hollywood also nabbed five nominations, including Quentin Tarantino for Director, and Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt in acting categories. Speaking of the Best Director category: Once again, the Hollywood Foreign Press failed to acknowledge the work of women directors, despite critical favorites like Lorene Scafaria’s Hustlers, Greta Gerwig’s Little Women, and Lulu Wang’s The Farewell. Each film managed to pick up acting nominations, so fortunately, it wasn’t a total shutout.

The same can’t be said for Ava DuVernay’s When They See Us, which, despite Emmy recognition, was entirely shut out of the competition. That wasn’t the only perplexing result within the television categories: While it’s fantastic to see Pose and Billy Porter continue to get their just due, MJ Rodriguez and Indya Moore are still oddly overlooked despite stellar performances each. As for the overall numbers, Netflix garnered the most nominations with 17, with HBO’s 15 noms following closely behind.
