Carol earned the most nominations of any film—a total of five! We can’t wait to find out who will win on January 10th, but in the meantime, here are some of this year’s most notable nominations:
- Transparent was nominated for Best TV series, Best Comedy, Best Actor (Jeffrey Tambor), and Best Supporting Actress (Judith Light).
- Orange Is the New Black was nominated for Best TV series, Best Comedy, and Best Supporting Actress (Yzo Aduba).
- Empire was nominated for Best TV Series, Best Drama, and Best Actress (Taraji Henson).
