‘Fences’ and ‘Hidden Figures’ also failed to earn nominations in top categories despite landing two nominations each.

Martin Scorsese’s Silence may be a late release among awards hopefuls but the high-profile drama was completely left out of Monday morning’s Golden Globe nominations, failing to earn nominations for best motion picture (drama) or best director (Scorsese). Star Andrew Garfield landed a nomination, but it was for his work in another film, Hacksaw Ridge. Also failing to earn a single nomination were fellow late-season release Patriots Day, which hits theaters on Dec. 21; Love & Friendship, which was expected to land nominations in a number of categories; Hail Caesar, which was also expected to land a couple nominations; and Sully, which was shut out, with even star Tom Hanks failing to land an almost certain best actor in a drama nomination.

Arrival landed two nominations, for star Amy Adams and best score, but was left out of the other categories including best picture (drama).

Warren Beatty’s Rules Don’t Apply was predicted to land a couple of nominations but the Howard Hughes film, which has bombed at the box office, wound up with one nomination for actress Lily Collins.

Both Hidden Figures and Fences scored two nominations each, but were left out of a couple of top categories. The latter didn’t land a best picture (drama) nomination and star Denzel Washington scored a best actor in a drama nomination but no best director nomination. Similarly, Hidden Figures, didn’t land a best picture (drama) nomination nor did Kevin Costner score a best supporting actor nomination.

While Manchester by the Sea scored five nominations, just behind La La Land and Moonlight for the most film nominations, Lucas Hedges was left out of the best supporting actor drama category despite earning raves for his performance.

And while the best animated film nominees matched predictions, adult-aimed hopeful Sausage Party missed out.
