Apple gets Golden Globe nominations for Morning Wars


The Apple TV+ original series Morning Wars has received three Golden Globe nominations.

Morning Wars – set in the world of US morning TV news – has been nominated as the best TV drama series, and its stars Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon have both been nominated for best performance by an actress in a television drama series.

According to the company, this is the first time that a streaming platform has been recognised in its first year by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

"Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for today's historic nominations," said Apple head of worldwide video Zack Van Amburg.

"After the debut of Apple TV+ just last month, today's nominations are a true testament to the powerful storytelling that went into Morning Wars, as well as all of our Apple Originals."

Apple head of worldwide video Jamie Erlicht (Erlicht and Van Amburg share the title) said "Morning Wars is resonating with audiences all around the world and today's recognition from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association further reinforces how timely and special this series is.

"Congrats to Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Michael Ellenberg, Kerry Ehrin, Mimi Leder and the unparalleled cast and creative minds behind this project. We cannot wait to continue exploring the world of Morning Wars into season two."

Morning Wars executive producer and showrunner Kerry Ehrin said "I'm incredibly proud that the show was nominated, and it's so rewarding to see the hard work and talent of Reese and Jen recognised.

"Mimi, Michael and I could not be more delighted and grateful to the HFPA for this honour, and to Apple for all their support."

Morning Wars director and executive producer Mimi Leder said "What a beautiful morning for Morning Wars! Feeling grateful to be able to bring this story to light alongside a most brilliant group of artists — our cast and crew who worked passionately from their hearts and souls to continue the conversation of power, greed and toxicity in the workplace.

"It is an important time, and a privilege, to be able to tell stories and create art that reflects the times we are living in. Thank you HFPA for this incredible honour and for also recognising Jennifer and Reese. Working with them is a dream come true. Kerry, Michael and I are blown away!"

Morning Wars executive producer Michael Ellenberg said "I am so grateful to the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for recognising Morning Wars and Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon's outstanding performances.

"A huge thank you to Apple TV+ for their incredible partnership and the remarkable cast and crew, who I'm honoured to share this nomination with."

New episodes of Morning Wars are currently dropping on Apple TV+ every Friday. The season finale premieres Friday, 20 December.

Apple TV+ costs $7.99 a month. A free trial is available, and purchasers of new compatible devices from Apple (iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, Mac) receive a one-year subscription at no extra charge.

Apple TV+ is also compatible with certain Samsung smart TVs, Roku and Amazon Fire TV devices, and is available via the web.
