Sean O'Connell, Managing Director at CinemaBlend, talks Netflix scoring 9 nominations for the 2018 Golden Globes, second only to HBO and what that means for the future of streaming services as a whole.

Is Netflix proving to be unstoppable as it edges closer to HBO? O'Connell notes that television is cyclical, adding that Amazon and Hulu could come back just as strong with nominations next year. That's especially true given the number of creators going to streaming services.

We also talk about the future of Apple as it jumps into original content, as well as how women feature so prominently in this year's motion picture nominations. Guillermo Del Toro's "The Shape of Water" nabbed the most nominations in the motion picture category, with "The Post" and "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri" scoring numerous nominations as well.

O'Connell weighs in on some of the Golden Globe snubs, like the critical and audience hit "Wonder Woman." Neither the film nor its female director Patty Jenkins scored a nomination.
