10 Series Starring 2021 Golden Globe Nominees You Can Stream Now

It’s never Golden Globes nomination day without a few snubs and surprises. On Wednesday, February 3, Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P. Henson announced the nominees for the 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards, set to air on NBC on Sunday, February 28.

With “prestige” TV on the rise — and the lines between film and TV blurred in the streaming era — you’ll notice that many of the actors nominated in the 2021 Golden Globes’ film categories are TV stars (and vice versa). In fact, a few hard-working nominees earned nods in both film and TV categories this year.

To watch, tune in to the 78th Golden Globe Awards, airing Sunday, Feb. 28, on NBC with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returning to host on different coasts. But in the meantime, you can stream the following shows, all of which feature actors currently nominated for their film roles.

Before her latest nomination — Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama for Nomadland — Frances McDormand earned two Golden Globe nominations in 2015 for this HBO miniseries, in which she plays a Maine schoolteacher, wife, and mother across a 25-year span.


Westworld is a cerebral sci-fi thriller TV series (produced by HBO) involving a theme park filled with surprisingly human-like androids. The theme park, named Westworld itself, attracts customers to roleplay with the robots—go on scripted adventures, kill, have sex or simply converse.

It is a must-watch for anyone intellectually interested in artificial intelligence. Here is an interesting discussion from episode 3 of season 1.

The discussion begins when Bernard (the head of the programming department) approaches Dr. Ford (his mentor and the mastermind behind the whole project) with a problem: two of their androids (referred to as the 'hosts') were malfunctioning—hallucinating and talking to an imaginary person.

To put Bernard at ease, Dr. Ford initiates an interesting discussion, starting with a story of the time when Westworld was in the early development phase and had not been made open to the customers (referred to as the 'guests').

The highlight of this scene is the Bicameral Mind theory.

Anthony Hopkins, up for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama nomination for The Father, starred on the first two seasons of this HBO sci-fi drama, playing Dr. Robert Ford, the morally compromised director of the titular theme park. Available on HBO Max.

The Queen’s Gambit

When winning takes everything, what are you left with? The Queen’s Gambit follows a young chess prodigy’s rise from an orphanage to the world stage. But genius comes with a cost. A riveting adaptation of Walter Tevis’ groundbreaking novel comes to Netflix on October 23rd, starring Anya Taylor-Joy.
