Nadine Labaki’s Capernaum was among the nominees at this afternoon’s nomination announcement. The film will compete in the Best Picture – Foreign Language category, competing against big hitters such as Alfonso Cuaron’s hotly tipped Roma and Hirokazu Koreeda’s Palme d’Or-winning Shoplifters.

Actors Terry Crews, Danai Gurira, Leslie Mann and Christian Slater announced the nominees at the Beverley Hilton hotel in Los Angeles, alongside Golden Globe ambassador Isan Elba, Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Meher Tatna and Dick Clark Productions executive VP of television Barry Adelman.

Capernaum, Labaki's third film, uses non-actors to tell its story of children in the slums of Beirut. It tackles the ills of life on the street and is hung around a central conceit, of a child who sues his parents for having produced him.

The Globes is the most cumbersome of the major award ceremonies, with awards for both film and TV, and categories subdivided into drama and musical or comedy. Among the key takeaways were a rare showing for Marvel in the Best Picture – Drama category, courtesy of Black Panther – it will compete against BlacKkKlansman, Bohemian Rhapsody, If Beale Street Could Talk and A Star Is Born, and a strong showing for the main streaming services – Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs Maisel and A Very English Scandal were among their nominations in the TV section, while Netflix picked up three nods for Alfonso Cuaron’s movie Roma alone.

Tatna also announced that this year's award would feature a new Achievement in Television Award, the TV equivalent of its existing Cecil B Demille Award for movies. The winner will be announced in the coming days.
