For the first time in the History of Golden Globes 2021, three women have been shortlisted in the Best Director Nominations in a single year. In the 77 year history of the Golden Globe Awards, only 5 women have been nominated for the prize but not within the same year. The trend has finally changed with impressive talents coming out from the Female community who are leaving legendary marks in the HIstory of Entertainment and Arts. 

Regina King, Chloe Zhao, and Emerald Fennell are up for the price, and seems like the competition is pretty tight between the ladies. ‘Mank’ holds the highest impression in the movies section and has about 6 nominations. ‘The Crown’ is leading in the Tv series category and also has six nominations under its wings. Sacha Baron Cohen and Olivia Colman are nominated for the ‘Actors’ Awards. Another mention-worthy film in the nominations is - Aaron Sorkin's film drama - The Trial of the Chicago 7.  The Tv comedy series Schitt’s Creek also bagged 5 nominations in the award ceremony.

The Golden Globe awards will start off as the first awards ceremony of the Year 2021 and several others are likely to follow in the next consecutive months. Baron Cohen has been nominated for The Trial of the Chicago 7 and also Borat Subsequent Movie film. He said he was overwhelmed and extremely happy to receive this kind of recognition for his work and is looking forward to attending the award ceremony. 

Anya-Taylor Joy has been nominated for Netflix’s ‘The Queen’s Gambit’ and the Jane Austen Fil adaptation - Emma. Colman has been nominated again this year after winning an award for ‘The Crown’ last year. She has also been shortlisted for ‘The Father’ along with the nomination for ‘The Crown’. 

Many women have been recognized for their hard work both on-screen and off-screen during the award season this year. The multiple nominations are a point of pride for these leading ladies and also several other entertaining artists who put their soul into making masterpieces on the big screen. Chinese director Chloe Zhao will be the first Asian woman to be nominated for the Director’s Prize.
