By Josefin Dolstein
(JTA) – Plenty of Jewish actors as well as films and shows with Jewish content made this year’s Golden Globes shortlist.
Here are the Jewish nominees for the award, presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Winners will be announced on Jan. 6 during the awards show on NBC.
Adam Driver was nominated for best supporting actor in a film for his role in “BlackKkKlansman.” Driver, who is not Jewish, plays a Jewish cop who teams up with an African-American officer to infiltrate a Ku Klux Klan branch in the Spike Lee film, which was also nominated for best motion picture.
“The Kominsky Method” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” were both nominated for best musical or comedy television series. Rachel Brosnahan, who is not Jewish but plays the Jewish protagonist in Amazon’s “Maisel,” is also up for a nomination for best actress. Alex Borstein was nominated for best supporting actress for her role as Brosnahan’s sidekick in the Amazon series. Brosnahan is joined in that category by Alison Brie (“Glow”) and Debra Messing (“Will & Grace”).
