In case you have forgotten, Selena Gomez also acted in Hulu’s Only Murders In the Building this year, besides her well-publicized documentary series. Her impeccable appearance at the 2023 Golden Globes serves as a reminder of this. As a first-time nominee at the event, Gomez chose a black Valentino gown with striking purple statement sleeves for the ceremony. Being a master in the art of fashionable dressing, Selena Gomez complemented the striking look with simple jewelry and a sleek high ponytail.
After not receiving a nomination from the Emmys, much to the disappointment of her devoted supporters, Gomez’s role in Only Murders in the Building was nominated in the category of best actress in a television series at the Golden Globes. Not surprisingly, her co-stars Steve Martin and Martin Short also received nominations for Golden Globe awards for their work in the same series.
Gomez had acknowledged in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that it was a challenge for her to be recognized as a serious actor and not just a former Disney star. She had said, “I felt like it was very difficult for people to take me seriously,” she said. “I have slowly pushed through that, and I’m really glad, but it was very frustrating. I felt like a joke, you know?”
A Golden Globe nomination could be seen as a strong indication that the public and industry peers have started to acknowledge Gomez’s growth and maturity as an actor, and view her more seriously in the industry. This can be a recognition of her hard work and dedication to her craft, and a validation of her capabilities as an actress.
