The Golden Globe nominations were officially announced this morning; in fact, you can check out CinemaBlend's coverage of the movie nominations, we well as the TV nominations. While many of the movies we expected to see received nods from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, there were also more than a few major surprises. Chief among these surprises was the complete omission of Wonder Woman from any category.
With a massive box office haul and an impressive 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it's clear that there's a lot of love for Patty Jenkins' DCEU adventure. Alas, it still went overlooked by the Hollywood Foreign Press when there were a few clear categories in which it could contend. Those are the categories that we intend to dive into, so let's take a look at Wonder Woman and talk out the Golden Globe nominations that it should've received.
Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama - Chris Pine
There's a strong case to be made that Chris Pine's Steve Trevor is just as much of the main character in Wonder Woman as Gal Gadot's Diana Prince, and much of that has to do with Pine's performance as the American soldier/spy. Efficiently carrying much of the film's emotional weight squarely on his shoulders, Pine delivers a performance that is not only funny and chock full of charisma, but also deeply affecting in the way that we see him evolve over the course of his time with Diana. His final on-screen moments are some of the most heartwrenching that we have ever seen in a DC movie (DCEU or otherwise), and the decision to leave him out of the Golden Globe nominations feels like a significant omission.
Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture - Robin Wright
Robin Wright's Antiope doesn't get much screen time in Wonder Woman; in fact, her death very clearly marks the end of the film's first act. That said, out of anyone present in the film's supporting cast, she arguably deserves the most recognition for completely enveloping herself in her character and delivering a truly compelling performance. Wright transformed herself to become the Amazonian General by putting on a considerable amount of muscle and donning a no-nonsense warrior persona that seems to represent a far cry from her days as Princess Buttercup. Even with her reduced role in Wonder Woman, she still managed to knock her scenes out of the park, and her work on Diana Prince's solo movie could easily stand alongside the other women currently nominated in the supporting category.
