A number of Jews have been nominated for next year’s Golden Globe awards.

Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story received four nods, including best picture (musical or comedy) and best director.

Competing against Spielberg for best director is Maggie Gyllenhaal for her directorial debut The Lost Daughter, an adaptation of the Elena Ferrante novel of the same name.

Andrew Garfield’s star turn as American Jewish composer and lyricist Jonathan Larson in Tick, Tick … Boom! has earned him a nomination for best actor in a motion picture (musical or comedy), while Alana Haim has been nominated for her role in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Licorice Pizza.

Other Jewish nominees in the movie categories include Aaron Sorkin for his screenplay for Being the Ricardos, and Hans Zimmer for his score for Dune.

British Jewish actor and writer Brett Goldstein earned his first-ever Golden Globe nomination for his role as the gruff player-turned-coach Roy Kent in Ted Lasso, while breakout Jewish comedian Hannah Einbinder has been nominated for her role in Hacks.

Einbinder is competing against 2017 Globe winner and fellow Jewish actress Tracee Ellis Ross for her role in black-ish.

NBC decided it will not televise the annual film and television awards show next year amid numerous controversies that have rattled the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, from an alleged “culture of corruption” to it not having any members of colour.
