NEW YORK— After scandal and boycott plunged the Hollywood Foreign Press Association into disarray and knocked its annual award show off television for a year, the Golden Globes geared up Monday for its return by showering nominations on “The Banshees of Inisherin” and “Everything Everywhere all at Once.”

The Globes are trying to mount a comeback this year. A Los Angeles Times investigation in early 2021 found that the group then had no Black members, a revelation compounded by other allegations of ethical improprieties. Many stars and studios said they would boycott the show.

NBC last year canceled the telecast that would have taken place this past January. Instead, the Golden Globes were quietly held in a Beverly Hilton ballroom without any stars in attendance. Winners were announced on Twitter.

The HFPA has historically been derided — sometimes even by their own hosts — for less diverse nominees and off-the-wall picks. The film nominees Monday included eight people of color among the 30 acting individual acting nominees. No woman was nominated for best director, with nods instead going to Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, Martin McDonagh, Baz Luhrmann and Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, the filmmaking duo known as “the Daniels.” None of the films up for best picture in either best drama, or best musical or comedy categories, was directed by women.

On the TV side, the ABC public school comedy “Abbott Elementary” led with five nominations, including best series, musical or comedy, and nods for its stars Quinta Brunson, Janelle James and Tyler James Williams. “The Crown,” “Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story,” “Only Murders in the Building,” “Pam & Tommy” and “White Lotus” all came away with four nominations.

The show, which will be telecast Jan. 10 will be hosted by stand-up comedian Jerrod Carmichael.

Nominations were announced early Monday by father-daughter duo George and Mayan Lopez on NBC’s “Today” morning show.

Many stars and studios said they would boycott the show. Cruise earlier this year returned his three Globes.

Among the nominees for best actor in a drama is Brendan Fraser. Fraser has said he won’t attend the Globes after he said he was groped in 2003 by Philip Berk, a former HFPA member and former president of the organization.

Whether Cruise, overlooked in the lead actor category, chooses to attend this year will be much discussed ahead of the ceremony. His “Top Gun: Maverick,” the year’s biggest box-office smash, is nominated for two awards: best film, drama, and best song. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer was among the first to cheer the film’s nominations with a statement of thanks on Monday.

“Top Gun: Maverick” wasn’t the only blockbuster welcomed by the Globes. Cameron’s upcoming “Avatar: The Way of Water” scored nods for both best film, drama in addition to Cameron’s best director nod. “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” snagged two nominations, for Angela Bassett’s supporting performance and Rihanna’s “Lift Me Up.”

Arguably no film got a bigger boost than Damien Chazelle’s silent-film-era epic “Babylon.” The film doesn’t open in theaters until later this month, but came away with five nominations, including nods for Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt and Diego Calva.
