‘Moonlight’ and ‘Transparent’ among this year’s LGBTQ Golden Globe nominees

The 2017 Golden Globe Awards will not feature nearly as many LGBTQ nominees as in January, but those who were nominated are up for the biggest prizes of the year.

With six nominations, the gay-themed coming of age drama “Moonlight” was narrowly edged out by the Hollywood love letter “La La Land,” which took home seven, as announced Monday morning by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association in Los Angeles.

Barry Jenkins’s acclaimed drama about a black gay man in Miami at three stages of his life is seen as a strong contender against what the Guardian called “a hymn to old Hollywood.” “Moonlight’s” haul included nominations for best picture, best director, best screenplay, best original score, best supporting actor for Mahershala Ali and best supporting actress for Naomie Harris.

Bisexual actress Evan Rachel Wood is nominated for her role in HBO’s “Westworld.”

Last year’s Golden Globe nominations set a new record for LGBTQ performers and creative works, although only two awards went to members of the community: Sam Smith and Lady Gaga.

Amazon’s “Transparent” is among the nominees again, with nods for best television drama and a nomination for Jeffrey Tambor. The hit series won big in 2015 but was among those passed over this year.

The 2016 host, Ricky Gervais, is not returning after controversial remarks he made about Caitlyn Jenner made headlines. This year, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel will be master of ceremonies at the awards Jan. 8 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, to be broadcast live on NBC.

And even if she does not win for “Florence Foster Jenkins,” Meryl Streep, 67, is sure to go home with at least one award: the heralded actress is being honored for her outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment with the 2017 Cecil B. DeMille Award.

“Simply put, she is a trailblazer, having paved the way for women in television, film and stage,” HFPA president Lorenzo Soria said last week. “For shattering gender and age barriers, all with finesse and grace, the HFPA is humbled to bestow this honor upon her.”
