Atlanta connections among Golden Globe nominees


Atlanta-filmed “Stranger Things” is up for some Golden Globes love again this year. Netflix’s retro sci-fi series, which has announced it'll film a Season 3, is up against “The Crown” (last year’s winner) and other strong contenders, “Game of Thrones,” “Handmaid’s Tale” and “This Is Us.”

MYAJC: Trophies are beside the point at this year's Golden Globes

“Stranger Things” cast member David Harbour is up for best-supporting actor in a series, limited series or television movie, as are Alfred Molina (“Feud: Bette And Joan”), Christian Slater (“Mr. Robot”), Alexander Skarsgård (“Big Little Lies”) and David Thewlis (“Fargo”).

Jason Bateman , nominated for best actor in a television drama for locally filmed “Ozark,” is up against Sterling K. Brown (“This Is Us”), Freddie Highmore (“The Good Doctor”), Bob Odenkirk (“Better Call Saul”) and Liev Schreiber (“Ray Donovan”).

And Ansel Elgort is up for best actor/musical or comedy for his title role in "Baby Driver." It's neither a musical or comedy, although the category mismatch is less profound in Elgort's case than Daniel Kaluuya, up for the same award for "Get Out." They’re up against Steve Carell (“Battle of the Sexes”), James Franco (“The Disaster Artist”) and Hugh Jackman (“The Greatest Showman.”)

The broadcast airs at 8 p.m. on NBC.
