Jewish talent is well represented among those vying for the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards, which honor movies and television. 

On the film side, Scarlett Johansson was nominated for “Marriage Story,” which is up for best drama. Noah Baumbach was left off the directing list but was nominated for his “Marriage Story” screenplay, and Randy Newman got a nod for his musical score.

Newman’s composer cousin Thomas Newman also received a nomination for WWII film “1917” in which Sam Mendes scored a best directing nomination as well as best picture drama nomination.

Beanie Feldstein was recognized for “Booksmart,” while the Hitler satire “Jojo Rabbit” was nominated for best picture, musical or comedy.

Two very Jewish shows, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “The Kominsky Method” will compete against each other in the TV comedy series category, and its stars were also honored. Both Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin received nominations, as did honorary Tribe member Rachel Brosnahan.

Ben Platt and Paul Rudd join Douglas in the comedy/musical acting category, for “The Politician” and “Living with Yourself,” respectively. “Russian Doll” star Natasha Lyonne is competing for comedy series actress and Joey King got a nod for the limited series “The Act.”

Sacha Baron Cohen was recognized for his role as an Israeli Mossad agent in “The Spy,” and two-time Globe winner Henry Winkler will vie for his third trophy, this time for “Barry.”
