Seven New York-based productions picked up 16 nominations for the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards, announced Governor Andrew Cuomo on Monday, December 12.
The productions – which include “The Americans,” an FX thriller that was often filmed in south Brooklyn nabes like Bay Ridge – generated more than $224 million in spending and created approximately 13,300 new jobs across the state.
“New York is home to some of the most iconic film locations anywhere in the world and these Golden Globe nominations are further proof that our entertainment industry is thriving, creating tens of thousands of jobs and injecting billions of dollars into the state’s economy in the process,” said Cuomo. “I congratulate all the New York-based productions who were nominated for an award, and I encourage future filmmakers to build on the industry’s success and continue bringing jobs and investment to this state.”
Actress Keri Russell snagged a nom for Best Actress in a TV Series, Drama for her role in “The Americans,” and her co-star (and real-life partner) Matthew Rhys earned one for Best Actor.
Other New York-filmed nominees include the USA hit “Mr. Robot,” HBO’s own “The Night Of,” and Sarah Jessica Parker’s latest venture, “Divorce,” among others.
