The Golden Globes will not be lacking Australian star power with Russell Crowe, Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie, Cate Blanchett and Toni Collette picking up nominations in 2020!
Crowe, who has not had a major Hollywood awards nod for more than a decade, was nominated on Monday for portraying controversial Fox News boss Roger Ailes in the TV mini-series The Loudest Voice.
Crowe will compete against Sacha Baron Cohen (The Spy), Sam Rockwell (Fosse/Verdon), Christopher Abbott (Catch-22) and Jared Harris (Chernobyl) in the limited series or TV movie best actor category.

The streaming service Netflix and the film Marriage Story were the overall winners at the nomination ceremony. Netflix dominated Hollywood’s traditional movie studios with 17 nominations.
