See all the Golden Globe nominees
“BlackKklansman” is based on the true story and book by Ron Stallworth, a black officer in the Colorado Springs, Colorado police department who successfully infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan in the ’70s.
Lee was also nominated for best director for “BlackKklansman,” along with another director of color, Alfonso Cuarón of Mexico for “Roma.” Directors Bradley Cooper for “A Star Is Born,” Peter Farrelly for “Green Book” and Adam McKay for “Vice” round out the category.
There were no women directors recognized, which could lead to a repeat of the last ceremony in which presenter Natalie Portman made a pointed barb about the lack of female representation.
“And here are all the male nominees,” Portman said as she presented the best director award at the 75th Golden Globes.
More than a movie, ‘Black Panther’ is a movement
The nominations for films by Coogler, Lee and Jenkins helped to resurface the #GoldenGlobesSoBlack on social media, which originally launched in 2017.
