Game of Thrones, Westworld, and Stranger Things will go head-to-head at the Golden Globes

Stranger Things Netflix

The nominations for the upcoming Golden Globes have been announced, and they’re doing much to show how great 2016 was for genre television. Game of Thrones, Westworld, and Stranger Things all came away with nominations for Best TV Drama, along with nods for either Best Actress or Supporting Actress. Women are driving some of the year’s best, most daring TV, and they’re getting the recognition they deserve.

In addition to the Best TV Drama nods, Winona Ryder and Evan Rachel Wood both got Best Actress nominations for Stranger Things and Westworld, respectively. Lena Headey, who took the Iron Throne this year in the most epic fashion possible, is joined by the excellent and deadly Thandie Newton for Best Supporting Actress. They’re up against the likes of Keri Russell for the criminally underrated The Americans and Mandy Moore on the cry-till-you-throw-up series This Is Us.

All told, this year’s awards will feature some fierce competition for both TV and film. Oscar Best Picture hopefuls Moonlight and the brilliant yet deeply problematic Manchester by the Sea will face off for Best Dramatic Film while La La Land is up against the likes of 20th Century Women and Deadpool.
