HBO drama series Succession and Netflix Western-themed romantic drama Power of the Dog led another dominant awards showing by streaming companies with five Golden Globes nods each, as the embattled Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced nominations for its 79th annual Golden Globe Awards event Monday morning. 

Netflix once again received the most Golden Globes nominations, with Power of the Dog collecting two nods for New Zealand filmmaker Jane Campion (one each for writing and directing), as well as recognition for actors Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst and Kodi Smit-McPhee. Jonny Greenwood also was recognized for best score. 

Meanwhile, Netflix's Korean local-language dark fantasy sensation, Squid Game, was nominated for best TV drama, best drama actor (Lee Jung-jae) and best supporting actor (Yeong-su ). Netflix also received nominations for thriller series Lupin (best TV drama and best dramatic TV actor, Omar Sy,), original series Maid (actress Margaret Qualley), and film Don't Look Up (best comedy/musical actor and actress for Leonardo DiCaprio and  Jennifer Lawrence).

HBO's Succession received two best dramatic actor noms (Brian Cox and Jeremy Strong), as well as recognition for best drama series, best supporting actor (Kieran Culkin) and best supporting actress. 

HBO and HBO Max also got love from the HFPA for multi-generational comedy Hacks (best musical/comedy series, and best comedy musical actress for both Jean Smart and Hannah Einbinder) and limited crime drama series Mare of Easttown (best TV drama and best lead actress for Kate Winslet). On the film side, HBO received recognition for Venus and Serena Williams biopic King Richard (best film drama, best actor for Will Smith, and best supporting actress for Aunjanue Ellis) and Dune (best drama, best director for Denis Villeneuve and best original score for Hans Zimmer). 

Apple TV Plus' Emmy sensation Ted Lasso, meanwhile, received four noms, including best TV comedy/musical, best comedy/musical lead actor (Jason Sudeikis), bvest comedy/musical supporting comedy actor (Brett Goldstein) and best comedy/musical supporting actress (Hannah Waddingham). 

What does it all mean? That's questionable, since NBC cancelled its long-running annual Golden Globes telecast, amid accusations that the HFPA lacks members of color and that the organization is rife with grift and payola. 

The HFPA announced a reform plan earlier this year, but it's not clear if any Hollywood studio or Silicon Valley streaming company will use the Golden Globes as a marketing platform as they have in year's past.
