The Golden Globes stand apart from other awards ceremonies such as the Emmys and the Academy Awards in that they recognize achievements in both television and film. While these two mediums have historically existed on different levels – cinema being considered a higher art form than television – the two forms of storytelling are more similar today than ever before.
There’s no better illustration of this than the list of actors who have received nominations for Golden Globe Awards. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which has held the event since 1943, has this year nominated 68 actors who have helped elevate elevate their craft. In many cases, those nominated for work on television originally found fame working in film and vice versa.
