Guillermo del Toro's Cold War-era fairytale "The Shape of Water" swam away with a leading seven nominations from the Golden Globes, while the HBO drama "Big Little Lies" led the television nominees with six nods.

The nominees for best picture drama are: "Call Me By Your Name," ''Dunkirk," ''The Post," The Shape of Water" and "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri."

The nominees for best picture comedy or musical are: "The Disaster Artist," ''Get Out," ''Lady Bird," ''The Greatest Showman," and "I, Tonya."

"The Golden Globes are always interesting because they split drama and comedy, which gives them more films to honor, but it means there's limited utility in using the Golden Globes as an Oscar predictor," Vanity Fair reporter Rebecca Keegan told KPCC's Take Two.

While the Jordan Peele horror comedy "Get Out" won a nomination for best picture in a comedy or musical, Keegan expressed surprise that Peele did not receive a nomination for directing.

Nor did any women receive directing nods, despite critically acclaimed films such as "Lady Bird" directed by Greta Gerwig, "Detroit" directed by Kathryn Bigelow and Patty Jenkins' directing of "Wonder Woman."

"It was an all male directing category, which I found to really be a head scratcher," Keegan said. "It's kind of disappointing that it's all guys."

The Globes are the most prominent platform yet in Hollywood's awards season to confront the post-Harvey Weinstein landscape. Among the supporting actor nominees is Christopher Plummer, who has replaced Kevin Spacey in Ridley Scott's "All the Money in the World." Scott, too, was nominated for best director.

The 75th annual Golden Globe Awards will be held on Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018.
