The glorious Golden Globe Nominations 2020 have been revealed. And Netflix led in total; sweeping away 34 nominations across film and television. Additionally, Netflix limited series Unbelievable reigned 4 nominations in different categories. Kaitlyn Denver also scored her first Golden Globe nomination as an actress.
‘Unbelievable’ nominated for 4 Golden Globe Awards
Unbelievable is a Netflix production that really stole the spotlight this year. It’s based on the true story of a girl who reports being raped. The show highlights the tribulations around the law that follow, and then two detectives who follow her case. The theme of the story around reporting sexual abuse is an extremely important one.
The show is co-created and executively produced by Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly, and Kate Couric. The main cast is Toni Collette, Merritt Wever, and Kaitlyn Denver.
If you’ve watched the show, you already know how gripping and intense it is. Of course, the topic is a serious one and tends to get depressing. But the larger purpose is to create awareness and shed light on a very sensitive issue. The cast’s performances and acting are also brilliant.
Let’s get to the nomination categories that Unbelievable scored. First off, the show is nominated for ‘Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.’
Kaitlyn Denver | First-ever Golden Globe Nomination
Kaitlyn Denver, the lead actress who plays the rape victim and fights for her case, completely did justice to a role as fragile yet strong as this one.
She definitely deserved it and is nominated for the prestigious award for ‘Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television’.

More Nominations from Unbelievable
Interestingly, another nominee for the same category is also from ‘Unbelievable’. Merritt Wever is another nominee for ‘Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television’.
She plays the role of detective ‘Karen Duvall’ who is compassionate and dedicated to her job. She is competing with co-actor Denver for this award and we are curious who will win since both performed so well.
Well, there is yet another nominee but in the supporting category. The competition is tough but the cast of Unbelievable really made an impact. Toni Collette plays the role of a lead detective.
