The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has just announced this morning the nominations for the 74 edition of the Golden Globes, which includes three nominations for Latino talent: Pablo Larraín and his film Neruda, Gael García Bernal, and Gina Rodriguez.
The Chilean film Neruda was nominated for Best Foreign Film, marking the second nomination for Pablo Larraín, who was nominated last year for his film The Club. Neruda is an unorthodox tale about an unorthodox man. Larraín’s metafictional tale conjures up the legendary Nobel-winning poet, committed communist and unapologetic hedonist Pablo Neruda. When Chile outlaws his party in 1948, the left-wing artist-activist goes underground. Tracked by an ambitious, self-important police inspector—played by Mexican actor García Bernal—, Neruda’s life on the run inspires some of his greatest work, and the hunt for the poet becomes an exploration of the power of poetry itself.
García Bernal also received a nomination for Best Performance by an Actor (TV Musical or Comedy) for his work in Mozart in the Jungle. It is also the second nomination two years in a row for the Mexican actor for his same role, having won the Golden Globe last year. And Gina Rodriguez received her third consecutive nomination for Best Performance by an Best Actress (TV Musical/Comedy) for Jane, the Virgin, for which she won in 2015.
Additionally, "How Far I'll Go" from Disney's Moana with music and lyrics ny Lin-Manuel Miranda received a nod for Best Original Song - Motion Picture. The Golden Globes ceremony will take place on Sunday January 8 in Beverly Hills, and will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon.
