Hamilton bags two Golden Globe nominations and people are having mixed feelings about it

The industry love for Hamilton keeps coming as the iconic Broadway production landed two Golden Globe nominations ahead of the 2021 ceremony.

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical was delivered to a global audience last year as the film version of the stage production landed on Disney+.

Now the hit musical has been nominated for two gongs at the upcoming Golden Globes, six years after it first arrived on Broadway.

The film, which captured the original cast over three live stage performances in June 2016, is up for best motion picture – musical or comedy, with Miranda nominated for best actor in a motion picture – musical or comedy. 

Naturally, fans were delighted to see the beloved production receive nominations as one tweeted: ‘Hamilton being nominated at the golden globes is the best thing since sliced bread.’

Another wrote: ‘Hamilton got nominated, Heck Yeah #Hamilton, too bad Satisfied didn’t get a nom in music, was unlikely but best song in musical.’

However, others weren’t happy to see lead cast members such as Leslie Odom Jr, Daveed Diggs, Phillipa Soo, and Renée Elise Goldsberry snubbed from solo nods.

One Twitter user wrote: ‘Bizarre that with Hamilton eligible for performance categories, only LMM was nominated. Not Leslie Odom Jr or Daveed Diggs or Renee Elise Goldsberry. I don’t quite get it.’

Another added: ‘when are people gonna realize that leslie odom jr carried half the show on his back.’

Eligibility requirements for awards season were adjusted this year to accommodate the coronavirus pandemic, which allowed Hamilton to be in the running.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association loosely defines a musical as ‘a comedy or a drama in which songs are used in addition to spoken dialogue to further the plot’ and there’s nothing in the rules that says filmed stage plays don’t count.

Some people weren’t happy to see the filmed version land a nod over other releases from the past year.

One wrote: ‘I love Hamilton. It’s a seminal piece of theatre that has forever altered the landscape of the industry and deserves every bit of recognition it gets.’

‘But its Golden Globe nominations are a joke. If it wins, the Golden Globes will become a bigger punchline than they already are.’

Another added: ‘I hate that Hamilton has been nominated for golden globes.’

With 11 Tony Awards and one Grammy win to its name, Hamilton definitely isn’t lacking in critic acclaim so far.

We’ll have to wait until later this month to find out how Miranda and the gang fair at the Golden Globes, which will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler from two different coasts. 

The Golden Globes take place live on February 28.
