Two Bombshell Stars Snag Golden Globe Nominations

December 20th, 2019Two Bombshell Stars Snag Golden Globe Nominations

The explosive story of the women who brought down the infamous man who created Fox News unfolds in AMC Artisan Film BOMBSHELL, in theatres now. Even the first look at the film got critics and movie fans buzzing, not only about the shocking — and recent — true story, but also the star-studded cast, which includes Nicole Kidman, Charlize Theron, Margot Robbie, John Lithgow, Allison Janney, Malcolm McDowell, Kate McKinnon and more.

Turns out, there was good reason for the hype. BOMBSHELL's explosive performances got the attention of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and snagged two nominations for the 2020 Golden Globes.

Charlize Theron, Best Actress (Drama)

Charlize Theron proved her incredible talent and commitment to a role in 2003's MONSTER, for which she transformed into serial killer Aileen Wuornos. The drama earned her her first Golden Globe nomination... and win. Since, she has been nominated five times, for TULLY, YOUNG ADULT, NORTH COUNTRY, the TV movie THE LIFE AND DEATH OF PETER SELLERS, and this year's BOMBSHELL.

She faces some serious competition in the Best Actress (Drama) field — Renée Zellweger for JUDY, Cynthia Erivo for HARRIET, Scarlett Johansson for MARRIAGE STORY and Saoirse Ronan for LITTLE WOMEN — but her embodiment of Fox News reporter Megyn Kelly makes her a worthy adversary.

Margot Robbie, Best Supporting Actress

Margot Robbie's star has been on the rise since 2013's THE WOLF OF WALL STREET, but her big breakout arrived in 2016 with the role of Harley Quinn in SUICIDE SQUAD. Two years later, she starred in the Golden Globe and Oscar® nominated I, TONYA as the titular disgraced ice skater, Tonya Harding. (You can revisit all of these movies now on AMC Theatres On Demand.)

Her performance as fictional Fox News producer Kayla Pospisil in BOMBSHELL has earned Robbie her second Golden Globe nomination, this time in the Best Supporting Actress category, alongside Annette Bening for THE REPORT, Laura Dern for MARRIAGE STORY, Jennifer Lopez for HUSTLERS and Kathy Bates for RICHARD JEWELL. Will she take home the win?
