Nicole Kidman and Cate Blanchett will compete against each other after both Australians were nominated in the same category for the Golden Globe Awards.

Kidman was nominated for her role in the thriller The Undoing, and Blanchett received a nod for excellent work on the limited series Mrs America.

Netflix’s Mank – set in Hollywood’s Golden Age about the making of Citizen Kane – topped all of the films with six nominations. The streaming service knocked out the competition with 22 overall nods, followed by Netflix peers The Trial of the Chicago 7 with five.

Netflix beat the competition with a total of 22 film nominations – up from 17 last year.

Rival Amazon Prime took second place with seven film nominations, including three each for One Night in Miami and Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.

Comedians Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be back to host the event, the first major awards show in a pandemic season that culminates with the Oscars on April 25.

The nominations, which recognize the best performances and productions in film and television in 2020, were announced in a livestream on Wednesday morning local time by former Globes winners Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P. Henson.

The awards ceremony usually takes place on the first Sunday of the year, but this year the awards have been pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This year marks a premiere for the usually dazzling and upbeat ceremony that airs from Two Coasts instead of Beverly Hills, which is where it normally takes place.

Fey, 50, will be at the iconic Rainbow Room at Rockefeller Center in New York City, while Poehler, 49, will be at the traditional venue, the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

This year’s Globes is the fourth time that Fey and Poehler have shared hosting responsibilities. The couple previously hosted the Globes from 2013-2015, although this is the first time the former SNL co-stars have done so in a pandemic and from different sides of the country.

Jane Fonda, 83, will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award, the highest honor given to an individual who has an influence on the film, during the 78th annual ceremony. 98-year-old Norman Lear will take home the Carol Burnett Award for legendary contributions to television history.

In another milestone, the late Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman was posthumously nominated for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.

This year, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association made history, nominating only five women directors in its long history. Nominations for three women directors were announced today.

#MeToo revenge thriller Promising Young Woman in particular exceeded expectations with Best Drama, Director, Screenplay, and Actress recognition for Carey Mulligan.

Last year organizers were convicted for not nominating any female directors, but this year Chloe Zhao (Nomadland), Regina King (One Night in Miami) and Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman) all earned nods.

There were some snubs as well as snoozes. Meryl Streep missed a nomination for the Netflix musical The Prom. Jason Bateman was nominated for a third time for Ozark, and Jodie Comer received a second consecutive nod for Killing Eve.

The final season of British royal family drama The Crown had six nominations, including for relative newcomer Emma Corrin, who plays Diana Princess of Wales.
