“one of the best films of the year” and raved that both Johansson and Driver give “career-best performances.”

Marriage Story is the most-nominated film of the 77th Golden Globe Awards, with six nominations. On the television side, Chernobyl, The Crown, and Unbelievable are tied for first place with four nominations each.

Ricky Gervais will host this year’s ceremony in his fifth turn as MC. “Once again, they’ve made me an offer I can’t refuse,” the comedian, 58, previously said in a statement. “But this is the very last time I’m doing this, which could make for a fun evening.”
