The Politician Golden Globe nominated

Last week, the nominations for the 77th Golden Globe nominees were announced. Even though some of our faves like euphoria, When They See Us and Greta Gerwig were snubbed.

For the first time, most of the nominations are for streaming services, even some of the films like The Irishman and Marriage Story are available to watch on Netflix right now.

The Golden Globes will take place on 5 January at the Beverley Hilton in Los Angeles. It will be hosted by Ricky Gervais. So you have just under a month to catch up with everything and TBH, I can’t think of a better way to spend my festive season.

So here’s where you can stream the nominated series and movies in South Africa:
