Big British names stood out in the nominations for the 80th Golden Globes. Dame Emma Thompson, Olivia Colman, Bill Nighy and Daniel Craig all took the nods for top honors ahead of the annual ceremony, which was blown out of air by controversy this year.

The 2023 nominations were announced Monday by comedic father-daughter duo George and Mayan Lopez live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.

Blockbuster films Avatar: The Way Of Water and Top Gun: Maverick topped the Best Motion Picture: Drama category alongside Elvis, The Fabelmans and Tar.

Titles nominated for Best Motion Picture: Musical or Comedy included The Banshees Of Insherin, Everything Everywhere All At Once, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and Triangle Of Sadness.

Colman was among the nominees for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture: Drama for her role in Empire Of Light.

She was joined by Blanchett, as well as Viola Davis, Ana De Armas and Michelle Williams.

Blanchett was nominated for Tar, Davis for The Woman King, De Armas for Blonde, and Williams for The Fabelmans.

In the parallel category, Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture: Drama, Brendan Fraser received a nomination for his performance in The Whale.

He was joined by Bill Nighy, credited for Living, Hugh Jackman for The Son, Austin Butler for Elvis, and Jeremy Pope for The Inspection.

Dame Emma was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture: Musical or Comedy for her role in Good Luck To You, Leo Grande.

She was nominated in the category alongside Anya Taylor Joy, Margot Robbie, Lesley Manville and Michelle Yeoh.

Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes and Colin Farrell were nominated in the parallel category for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture: Musical or Comedy.

Taylor Swift will take on fellow pop megastars Rihanna and Lady Gaga in the Best Original Song category, each receiving nominations for Carolina, Lift Me Up and Hold My Hand.

Other nominees include Naatu Naatu from the film RRR and Ciao Papa from Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio.

Elsewhere, no women were nominated in the best director category at this year’s awards.

James Cameron has been nominated for his highly anticipated Avatar sequel, alongside Martin McDonagh for The Banshees Of Inisherin and Steven Spielberg and Tony Kushner for The Fabelmans.

Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert received recognition for Everything Everywhere All At Once, as did Baz Luhrmann for Elvis.

It comes after the 2022 Golden Globes were held behind closed doors after its organizer, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), faced heavy criticism over diversity issues within the organisation.

The typically star-studded and joke-filled event was replaced with regular updates from the Golden Globes website and official social media accounts after NBC declined to air the show.

However, the HFPA announced that the organization would make greater efforts to diversify its voting pool at the 2023 ceremony.

Last week, comedian Jerrod Carmichael was announced as the host, with the ceremony set to take place on Tuesday, January 10.
