Cillian Murphy’s Oppenheimer was one of the most talked about films of this year. Christopher Nolan gave this film his all, and it could be seen by anyone who watched the movie.

The actor was nominated in the category of Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama.

A film that was just as talked about as Oppenheimer was Greta Gerwig’s Barbie, a film that was a long time coming and surprised its audience in the best ways possible. Margot Robbie being front and centre as the titular character, gave an exceptional performance. It is only natural, that she was nominated for a Golden Globe in the category of Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy.

Pedro Pascal For The Last Of Us

The Last of Us took the Internet by storm during its initial release. On top of it being an adaptation of one of the best video games of all time, it was also a very good attempt at it. Being as accurate as possible, fans loved the HBO series. Pedro Pascal, who played the role of Joel Miller, gave an amazing performance as the character, which was not only accurate to the source material but also extremely well executed. It is no surprise that he has been nominated in the category of Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Drama, for a Golden Globe.

Harrison Ford recently came out with his latest film, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. Being the latest edition of the Indiana Jones franchise, and being highly anticipated by fans, its performance in the box office was extremely surprising. The film did very poorly not only with audiences but critics as well. It is no surprise that we do not see the Star Wars actor’s name in the list of nominees.

Chris Evans is one of the most beloved actors in Hollywood. Despite this, his recent AppleTV film, Ghosted, had a very poor performance amongst audiences. It seemed that there was little to no conversation around this movie. The critics were also not able to save it, having a rating of 5.8 on IMDb.

Vin Diesel’s Fast X was supposed to be the biggest movie from The Fast and the Furious franchise, and it seemed like this was. Despite this, the film wasn’t even able to break even due to its outrageous budget. It is no surprise that the actor’s name was not seen next to the nominees.

Tom Cruise for Mission: Impossible- Dead Reckoning Part 1

Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible franchise is one of the biggest of all time, having had a huge influence on spy films. Despite this, the most recent addition, Mission: Impossible- Dead Reckoning Part 1 underperformed in the box office. The film had a huge budget and some very serious stunts, however, it still managed to fail to grab its audience’s attention.

Ezra Miller’s The Flash had been in the making for years. it had been postponed a number of times and hyped up to an extent very few superhero films have. On top of this, it had cameos from past characters, and big-name celebrities, and was very significant to the future of the DCEU. Despite this, the film went down in history as the worst-done superhero film of all time.
