James Cameron has been nominated for his highly anticipated sequel to Avatar, alongside Martin McDonagh for The Banshees Of Inisherin, and Steven Spielberg and Tony Kushner for The Fabelmans.

Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert received a nod for Everything Everywhere All At Once, as did Baz Luhrmann for Elvis.

It comes after the 2022 Golden Globes went behind closed doors after its organizing body, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), came under heavy criticism over diversity issues within the organization.

The usually star-studded, joke-filled event was replaced by periodic updates from the Golden Globes website and official social media accounts, after NBC refused to air the show.

But the HFPA said the 2023 ceremony would see the organization redouble its efforts to diversify its voting pool.

Last week, comedian Jerrod Carmichael was announced as the host, with the ceremony set to take place on Tuesday, January 10.
