"Get Out" is up for best comedy or musical in the Golden Globes. Yes. Comedy.
Musical? What ? I don't remember any song and dance numbers!
It's just a horror movie, straight up horror movie. But there was a small amount of comic relief and so it gets shoved into the comedy and musical category. I don't think that putting it in the wrong category is necessarily racist though because remember they did the same thing to 'The Martian' and everyone was scratching their heads about that too. That was not anything resembling a comedy but it was in that category.
I think the categories of the golden globes are just kid of arbitrary and outdated. Lots of movies and TV shows don't fit so neatly into a box, although this one does fit into a box and that box is called HORROR.
But Horror as a genre has been the red headed stepchild of the film industry so it's rare that a true horror movie gets any award.
I guess the Oscars make it simpler because they just put everything in one box, but the Golden Globes at least allows double the amount of trophies. Same with the actor and actress awards- there are twice as many because of the categories.
Which system do you prefer?
Categories that may or may not make any sense, or just one big inclusive bucket?
