The 79th annual Golden Globes are happening in Hollywood on Sunday but will not be live-streamed or televised by NBC due to the scandal about the lack of diversity within the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Still, this year’s nominees double as a solid to-do list in itself — watching The Lost Daughter, the new film starring Olivia Colman and directed by Maggie Gyllenhaal (streaming on Netflix) is one highly recommended example.
