  • The Golden Globes nominations were announced on Thursday, and FX led the TV nominations.
  • Amazon’s “The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel” was the only series from the comedy or drama categories that was nominated last year and this year.
  • The nominations were packed with newcomers, including Netflix’s “Bodyguard” and Amazon’s “Homecoming.”
  • Netflix fell behind both Amazon and HBO in nominations, while Hulu trailed dramatically.

This year’s Golden Globes nominations were announced on Thursday, and FX led the television pack with a total of 10 nominations.

That’s mostly thanks to “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” and “The Americans,” which landed four and three nominations, respectively. “American Crime Story” won the most nods of any of the series nominated. “The Americans” was nominated for best drama, best actress in a drama (Keri Russell), and best actor in a drama (Matthew Rhys, who won the Emmy this year for the show’s final season).

“The Assassination of Gianni Versace” was nominated for best limited series, best actor in a limited series (Darren Criss), best supporting actress in a limited series (Penélope Cruz), and best supporting actor in a limited series (Edgar Ramírez).

Other FX shows to be acknowledged were “Pose” with two nominations (best drama and best actor in a drama, Billy Porter) and “Atlanta” with one (best actor in a comedy, Donald Glover).

In the streaming war, Amazon Prime Video and HBO tied for the second-most nominations with nine each. They beat Netflix, which gained eight nominations. Hulu trailed with just two nominations, as “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which won best drama last year, was shut out from that category.
