Apple today received its first-ever Golden Globe nominations from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), including Best Television Series, Drama, for Apple’s global hit “The Morning Show” and dual nominations for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Drama, for “The Morning Show” stars and executive producers Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. The awards will be presented at the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards on January 5, 2020.
With today’s nominations for “The Morning Show,” Apple TV+ became the first streaming platform to receive recognition from the HFPA in its launch year, with the service launching only one month ago. These are also the first drama TV actress nominations for both Aniston and Witherspoon. Aniston is now only the fourth person in history to receive Golden Globe nominations for both TV Comedy and Drama, Lead Actress.
My wife and I are three episodes into The Morning Show, and we’re enjoying it more than I thought I would. Anniston and Witherspoon are a fun duo, and I’m a sucker for any TV show about a TV show that happens inside the TV show.
The only other show I’ve seen on Apple TV+ is For All Mankind, which I am loving. Given that I have a tiny Apollo CSM tattooed on my arm, it shouldn’t be a surprise, I suppose. That said, the acting and writing are simply fantastic. The most recent two episodes have been especially breathtaking at moments.
