Here’s Where You Can Catch The 2020 Golden Globe-Nominated Miniseries

And the Golden Globe goes to… This Miniseries Everyone’s Wild About But You’re Late to the Party On.

Yep, it’s that time of year once more, with the first big annual event of awards season set for Jan. 5, when we watch actor after director after writer rush to the stage to thank their people and praise a piece of work you’re probably yet to even know existed.

No category is more like this for most people than the award for Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. Sure, you saw the trailer go around once, or maybe your ahead-of-the-curve friend was talking about it at dinner last Wednesday, but what actually is it and where can you actually stream it? 

So, ahead of the 77th Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 5, here’s a list of where you can catch the nominated miniseries.

Catch 22

Joseph Heller’s classic 1961 satirical war novel comes to the streaming screen in this six-part Hulu original series. Co-directed, executive produced, and starring George Clooney as the General Scheisskopf, Catch 22 flies through Heller’s skewering of the absurd, frustrating, and uncompromising nature of war. Though it looks like a comedy, as Mashable’s Proma Khosla writes in this review, “Make no mistake, friends, this is a war epic, and a searing, caustic commentary from the men inside it.” Alongside the overarching Globe nomination for the series, Girls star Christopher Abbott is up for a best actor Globe for his role as protagonist John Yossarian.

Russell Crowe has earned a best actor nomination for his role as Fox News founder and former CEO Roger Ailes, who resigned in 2016 after being accused of sexual assault. Showtime’s seven-part limited series, The Loudest Voice, was based on Gabriel Sherman’s 2014 biography and delves into a decade over which Ailes launches Fox News in 1996 before his resignation, all while becoming a de facto leader of the Republican Party. Mashable’s Proma Khosla dubbed the series “political masochism theater.”

Katilyn Dever, Merritt Wever, and Toni Collette all nabbed Globe nominations for their role in Netflix’s Unbelievable, so if it’s powerful performances you’re after, this is it. Based on a true story, the gripping eight-part crime series tracks two detectives looking into the case of a young woman, Marie, who was charged with lying about having been raped. As Mashable’s Ali Foreman put it, “Unbelievable has done everything it can to give a voice to a victim who deserved one long ago.”
