The Golden Globe nominations were announced on Monday morning and it’s safe to say that lack of inclusion will not be a popular conversation this year.

Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight picked up a slew of nominations, including Best Screenplay, Best Picture Drama, Best Director and Best Original Score.

The film’s star Naomie Harris received a nod for Best Supporting Actress in a Movie. Joining Harris in  the same category are Fences’ Viola Davis, Lion‘s Nicole Kidman, Hidden Figures’ Octavia Spencer and Manchester by the Sea‘s Michelle Williams.

Viola’s Fences co-star Denzel Washington received a nomination for his role in the adapted film also directed by Washington. Hollywood newcomer Ruth Negga also made a splash in this year’s list, landing a nod in the Best Actress, Drama for her role in Loving.  

“2016 was an exceptional year in terms of the quantity and quality of films about the black experience,” acclaimed film critic Shawn Edwards tells HipHollywood exclusively. “Today’s Golden Globe nominations solidified that statement nominating Moonlight in six categories.

Edwards, who also runs the African American Film Critics Association, adds, “While this by no means solves the diversity issue in the film industry, it does prove that 2016 has been a historic year for Blacks in and behind the camera.”

The television category was also heavy in diversity; Insecure’s Issa Rae picked up her first Globes nomination in the category for Best Actress in a Comedy Series.

Kerry Washington garnered a nod for her role in HBO’s Confirmation, Emmy winner Courtney B. Vance picked up a nomination for Best Actor, Mini-Series or TV Movie thanks to his role on The People v. O.J. Simpson, and his co-star Sterling K. Brown was nominated for Best Supporting Actor.

The awards show, hosted by Jimmy Fallon, will air Sunday, January 8 on NBC.

We know Mariah Carey changes managers like she changes clothes, but her next move could be her best move. According to Page Six Carey is in talks with Jay Z’s Roc Nation to manage her career.

Roc Nation manages Rihanna, Shakira, J Cole and DJ Khaled to name a few.

Apparently, the pop diva is hoping Hov and his team can put her back on top now that she parted ways with former manager Stella Bulochnikov earlier this month.

Sources tell HipHollywood Carey is cleaning house, and has also fired her publicist, assistant and attorney Darrell Miller.

But one person who hasn’t gotten the boot is her back-up dancer boyfriend Bryan Tanaka. Rumors were swirling that she hired Tanaka to take over her day-to-day management, but he’s actually her creative director.

Carey just released her holiday movie Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You, and is slated to bring her Christmas concerts back to the Beacon Theater in NYC this month. She hasn’t however dropped a new album in almost four years.

Fingers crossed this new partnership with Roc Nation brings about new music, and a Mariah / Jay Z collaboration. The two did make magic back in 1999 with their #1 single “Heartbreaker.”
