AceShowbiz - Netflix led the Golden Globe nominations on Monday, December 09, with its films "The Irishman" and "Marriage Story" contributing to the streaming service earning a staggering 34 nods for the 2020 awards.

"The Irishman" stars Al Pacino and Joe Pesci are both nominated for the Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture category, alongside "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" star Brad Pitt, while the Netflix film's screenplay by Steven Zaillian is also up for an award - but will have to beat Tarantino to take home that gong.
