Hollywood disruptor Netflix dominated the Golden Globe nominations Monday as its heart-wrenching divorce saga Marriage Story grabbed six nods including best drama, kicking off the race for the Oscars. The streaming giant, which has spent billions to lure the industry's top filmmaking talent and fund lavish awards season campaigns, trounced the traditional Tinseltown studios with a whopping 17 film nominations. And Eddie Murphy's comeback vehicle Dolemite Is My Name added a further two nominations for Netflix on the comedy side. Joaquin Phoenix was nominated for a Golden Globe for best actor in a motion picture drama for his role in 'Joker'. Dark comic book tale Joker, which has grossed over US$1bil worldwide despite polarizing critics, was nominated for best drama, best actor (Joaquin Phoenix) and best director (Todd Phillips).
