Call Me By Your Name misses out at Golden Globes as sexual harassment scandal dominates

Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer left empty-handed at first major awards show of the year.

2018-01-08

It might have been one of the most critically-acclaimed film's of 2017, but Luca Guadagnino's Call Me By Your Name has missed out at this year's Golden Globes.

The sensual gay drama's award-season stock suffered a blow after it failed to pick up awards in three categories at the star-studded ceremony in Los Angeles.

Stars Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer were both passed over in the Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor categories, losing out to Gary Oldman and Sam Rockwell respectively.

The film was also overlooked in the Best Picture category in favour of Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

The Golden Globes are usually seen as a good predictor for the Academy Awards, which are set to take place on March 4. Call Me By Your Name's failure to pick up a prize may well dent its hopes of picking up an Oscar, with nominations for the biggest awards show of the year set to be announced on January 23.

Elsewhere, the Golden Globes were dominated by the ongoing Hollywood sexual harassment scandal, with stars wearing black to honour victims. 

Numerous references were made throughout the night to the recent string of accusations against industry heavyweights like Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey, while Oprah Winfrey declared that a "new days in on the horizon" as she picked up an honorary award and delivered a rousing speech on gender equality that had the audience on their feet.

Actress Natalie Portman summed up the mood as she made a pointed reference to the "all-male" nominees in the Best Director category as she introdcued the award. The last woman to win the award Barbra Streisand for Yentl in 1983 - almost 35 years ago.
