Must-watch films ahead of Golden Globes

With festive season over and the New Year upon us, it's time to look towards 2020 awards season, starting with the glitz and glamour of the 77th Golden Globes on January 6.

And judging by the nominees, Netflix films look set to dominate.

Marriage Story, starring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver, has landed six nominations, followed by The Irishman and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood with five apiece.

Close behind them, the Joaquin Phoenix-starring smash hit Joker and The Two Popes each landed four noms.

On the television side, HBO's Chernobyl, The Crown and Unbelievable each received four, with Barry, Big Little Lies, Fleabag, Fosse/Verdon, The Kominsky Method, The Morning Show and Succession landing three.

But while the year's buzziest films and TV shows seem accounted for at first glance, not everyone is happy.

Off the back of the Globes' announcement earlier this month via Facebook Live, Little Women star Florence Pugh commented that she was shocked her director Greta Gerwig - the woman behind 2017's Lady Bird - was snubbed.

"I think we were all a bit shocked, but the thing is, it's not that we were just shocked for Greta but that there were no women," Pugh told news.com.au over the phone during Little Women's press tour in Paris.

The film is up for two awards - Saoirse Ronan for Best Actress, and Best Original Score.

Pugh is not alone in her criticism of the nominations.

Commentators and fans were quick to point out that the Golden Globes voting body (some 80-something members of the eclectic Hollywood Foreign Press Association) failed to nominate any female filmmakers in any of the major film categories, including Best Drama, Best Comedy, Best Screenplay and Best Director.

Among the notable snubs were Lulu Wang's The Farewell, Melina Matsoukas' Queen & Slim, Marielle Heller's A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood, Lorene Scafario's Hustlers and Olivia Wilde's Booksmart.
