The nominations for the 77th Golden Globe Awards were announced this morning, and Billy Porter received a nod for his star turn as Pray Tell in the groundbreaking FX series, Pose.

Porter was nominated for the same role last year but lost the trophy to Bodyguard’s Richard Madden.

He may have lost out on the GG, but he did take home the 2019 Primetime Emmy Award for ‘Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series,’ becoming the first openly gay black man to be nominated and win in any lead acting category at the Primetime Emmys. 

Porter also received a nomination for Best Actor in a Drama Series from the Critic’s Choice Awards over the weekend. Pose scored additional nods for the Best Drama Series and Best Actress in a Drama Series for trans actress MJ Rodriguez.

Plus, TV Guide declared Porter’s turn on Pose as the #1 performance on television this year.

Other LGBTQ-centric nominations for the 2020 Golden Globes include Taron Egerton for the Elton John musical fantasy biopic Rocketman, Ben Platt’s ambitious high school student in Netflix’s The Politician, and Jodie Comer homicidal Russian assassin in the BBC’s Killing Eve.

For those who like to count, the Hollywood Reporter writes that Marriage Story leads the film nominees with six nominations, followed by The Irishman and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood with five nods each. Joker and The Two Popes scored four noms each.

On the television side, Chernobyl, The Crown and Unbelievable received four nominations, while Barry, Big Little Lies, Fleabag, Fosse/Verdon, The Kominsky Method, The Morning Show and Succession all garnered three nominations each.
