Apple TV+ shows and movies have been nominated for 12 Golden Globe awards. The ceremony — which honors “the best in movies and television” — won’t be televised. And the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) will announce the winners without celebrities, press, or even an audience. 

This is due in part to COVID. But probably contributing even more is the controversy around the membership and practices of the HFPA. Apple TV+’s nominations include:

° “CODA,” up for Best Drama Motion Picture.” It’s competing against “Dune,” “Belfast,” “The Power of the Dog,” “and “King Richard.”

° Troy Kotsur of “CODA” is up for “Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture.” He’s up against Ben Affleck (“The Tender Bar”), Ciaran Hinds (“Belfast”), Kodi Smit-McPhee (“The Power of the Dog”), and Jamie Dorman (“Belfast”).
