    Without the Golden Globes broadcast this year, there isn’t the usual question of what films will be nominated for Best Comedy or Musical. Curious what others think would have been in play for nomination. I see the following “top 10”:

    Annette
    Cruella
    Cyrano
    Don’t Look Up
    Dear Evan Hansen
    Everyone’s Talking About Jamie
    The French Dispatch
    In the Heights
    Tick…tick…boom!
    West Side Story

    Then there are those films that stir debate whether they would be comedy or drama. Would that include?:
    C’mon C’mon
    CODA
    Red Rocket
    The Starling

    Sure there are others. Thoughts?

    As of now, it’s hard to tell given that a number of these movies are sight unseen at this point. I imagine that the Globes likely would’ve come to bat for In the Heights. They’ve nominated musicals that were huge flops before such as The Producers, Nine, and Burlesque. Then again, all three of those were released in the fall, so they each had the advantage of being more fresh in peoples minds. So it’s hard to tell if the Hollywood Foreign Press would’ve gone all the way back to a box office flop from this past summer (despite all the rave reviews it received).

    Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy

    • Cyrano
    • Everybody’s Talking About Jamie
    • In the Heights
    • Tick… Tick…Boom!
    • West Side Story

    Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy 

    • David Alvarez – West Side Story
    • Peter Dinklage – Cyrano
    • Adam Driver – Annette
    • Max Harwood – Everybody’s Talking About Jamie
    • Anthony Ramos – In the Heights

    (Alternatively Andrew Garfield, Ben Platt, Ryan Reynolds, Ansel Elgort)

    Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy

    • Haley Bennett – Cyrano
    • Emily Blunt – Jungle Cruise
    • Camila Cabello – Cinderella
    • Ariana DeBose – West Side Story
    • Emma Stone – Cruela

    (Alternatively Jodie Comer, Rachel Zegler, Vanessa Hudgens…)

    Such a stacked year especially for musicals, it’s sad (Globes corruption aside) these musical performances won’t get the recognition they might have in other years…

    ^Why do you have both David Alvarez and Ariana DeBose in lead? Anyone who’s seen West Side Story (whether it would be the 1961 film adaptation or any stage production) should know that their characters are both very much supporting.

    There are so many examples of supporting roles frauded into that category even in recent years (due to supporting being stacked or whatever) I’m not even going to bother digging them up…

    I don’t think Respect would qualify as a musical

    ^Yeah. If Bohemian Rhapsody, Judy, A Star is Born (2018), and The United States vs. Billie Holliday all qualified as dramas, I imagine Respect would’ve been as well.

    Yes, but I doubt they’d want to have the performers playing Bernardo and Anita potentially pull votes away from the actual leads, Tony and Maria.

    Oh I agree, I was just being theoretical in that would they really nominate Elgort at the moment due to his personal problems or choose a safe alternative to avoid negative press… this isn’t going to happen so just a theory. And yeah I just picked DeBose to be frauded as her character had more success in the past than Maria…

    ^Although keep in mind that George Chakiris and Rita Moreno both won Golden Globes for their performances as Bernardo and Anita in the 1961 film adaptation in the supporting categories.

    1. Does House of Gucci look like a comedy to you?
    2. Has Aaron Sorkin ever written a comedy?
    3. Just because people perform songs in a movie doesn’t make the movie a musical i.e Respect is not a musical

    The Globes are still happening, they just won’t be as relevant as they used to be.

    Care to elaborate? I genuinely want to know. Will there be a ceremony, will it be broadcast?
