Golden Globes 2020: Nominees for Top Categories by Net Worth
Hollywood is overflowing with money so it's easy to assume all celebrities are rolling in it. And while some definitely are, there are others who may not be as wealthy as you think.
Guessing a star's net worth can be a little tricky since the public only has access to so much but these are Celebrity Net Worths ballpark figures of the Golden Globe 2020 nominees of the major movie categories this year. It's safe to say that the Best Actors, Best Actresses and Best Supporting Actors and Best Actresses are doing just fine when you look at the big picture. Some are at what appears to be an all-time high while others are just getting started.
Roman Griffin Davis ("Jojo Rabbit"), Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
Roman Griffin Davis' estimated net worth: $1 millionThe 12-year-old has one thing on his resume: Jojo Rabbit. But that was enough to earn the newcomer a decent amount of dough as well as all kinds of praise. Davis not only scored a Golden Globe nomination but also a Critics' Choice nod as well. His net worth will only grow as he (hopefully) continues down this road.

Cynthia Erivo ("Harriet"), Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama
Cynthia Erivo's estimated net worth: $3 millionErivo began her career on the stage but it was only a matter of time before the lights of Broadway and London's West End could keep her talents away from the big screen. The Tony winner (for The Color Purple in 2016) broke into the film industry in Bad Times at the El Royale but it was her portrayal of Harriet Tubman that won her all kinds of love, from both critics and audiences alike, not to mention an increase in paycheques.
Beanie Feldstein ("Booksmart"), Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
Beanie Feldstein's estimated net worth: $3 millionNo longer best known as Jonah Hill's younger sister, Feldstein has already carved out quite the diverse career, from Neighbors 2: Sorority Rise, Lady Bird and Booksmart, for which she's nominated for a Globe. But it's her role as Monica Lewinsky in the upcoming season of American Crime Story that will see her career really take off. Jonah who?
These are the richest people under 35. Ugh.
Awkwafina ("The Farewell"), Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
Awkwafina's estimated net worth: $4 millionBorn Nora Lum, the actress/comedian from Queens began rapping when she was 13 and writing songs at 17. She's had supporting roles in Ocean's Eight, Crazy Rich Asians (which earned nearly $240 million worldwide) and Jumanji: The Next Level but was a revelation in her first dramatic role in The Farewell, earning her some love from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Ana de Armas ("Knives Out"), Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
Ana de Armas' estimated net worth: $4 millionThe Cuban actress began acting when she was 18, and moved to Spain where she was best known for the series The Boarding School. By 2015, she had appeared in her first American films — Knock Knock, followed by War Dogs and Blade Runner 2049 but it was her starring role in the murder mystery Knives Out that had critics and audiences eating — but not throwing up — out of her hand.

Jonathan Pryce (“The Two Popes”), Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama
Jonathan Pryce's estimated net worth: $5 millionIt's been 26 years since Pryce received his only other Golden Globe nomination — for his supporting role in the 1993 TV movie Barbarians at the Gate — and his versatility makes him one of those actors we sometimes take for granted. From his Broadway runs (he has two Tonys, for Comedians and Miss Saigon) to film (Brazil, Evita, Glengarry Glen Ross, Tomorrow Never Dies, Pirates of the Caribbean and The Wife, just to name a few) and television (Game of Thrones and Taboo), his net worth is surprisingly small for a career this dynamic.
Taron Egerton ("Rocketman"), Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
Taron Egerton's estimated net worth: $6 millionThose who live on this side of the pond are familiar with Egerton from the Kingsman movies, as well as Eddie the Eagle and Robin Hood but his most notable and noteworthy role to date was embodying Elton John in the biopic Rocketman, which earned the actor a much-deserved Globe nomination. Will he feel the love Sunday night?
Saoirse Ronan ("Little Women"), Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama
Saoirse Ronan's estimated net worth: $7 millionThe Irish actress maintained her love of period pieces in 2019's Little Women, and her role as the ferocious, defiant Jo nabbed her her fifth Globe nomination (she won in 2017 for playing the titular character in Lady Bird). At this rate, her net worth is going to skyrocket.
Adam Driver ("Marriage Story"), Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama
Adam Driver's estimated net worth: $10 millionAs Kylo Ren, one would expect Driver's net worth to be heftier but for his first Star Wars role, in The Force Awakens in 2015, the Girls and Logan Lucky actor reportedly earned somewhere in the six-figure range (not including any back-end bonuses he may have negotiated). Considering the billion-dollar franchise, however, going into The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker, the actor likely scored a significant salary increase, with estimates in the seven-figure range.

Laura Dern ("Marriage Story"), Best Actress in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture
Laura Dern's estimated net worth: $20 millionThe eight-time Golden Globe-nominee (and four-time winner) has worked steadily throughout her career but she arguably she's at the pinnacle of it, co-starring on a hit series packed with powerful women and playing the March matriarch in another female-dominated cast and signed on for four more big projects including another Jurassic movie, where she reprises the role of Ellie, which she originated in 1993. But it's her turn as a tough divorce attorney where Dern really got to sink her teeth and land her latest nod.
Margot Robbie ("Bombshell"), Best Actress in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture
Margot Robbie's estimated net worth: $22 millionShe's earning between $9 and $10 million for the upcoming Birds of Prey, in which she brings Harley Quinn — arguably the best part of Suicide Squad — back to the big screen, which more than doubled her net worth. Ka-ching!

Kathy Bates ("Richard Jewell"), Best Actress in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture
Kathy Bates' estimated net worth: $32 millionAccording to Celebrity Net Worth, the Misery star makes $175,000 per episode — so perhaps that's her going rate, whether as the lead in the short-lived Netflix comedy, Disjointed, or for any of the various roles she's taken on in the American Horror Story anthology series. Now up for her eighth Golden Globe, playing the mother of Richard Jewell, she just keeps adding to her bank account. And perhaps her mantle.
Joaquin Phoenix ("Joker"), Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama
Joaquin Phoenix's estimated net worth: $35 millionJoker may be the top-grossing R-rated movie of all time — raking in over $1 billion at the box office worldwide — but in the grand scheme of things, Phoenix's $4.5-million paycheque was a drop in the bucket. A healthy drop but a drop nonetheless. While it's unknown if he got a cut of the back end, it's safe to say he'll negotiate for significantly more for the sequel.

Antonio Banderas ("Pain and Glory"), Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama
Antonio Banderas' estimated net worth: $45 millionBanderas has a knack for playing supporting roles as of late but he went back to his leading man status in Pedro Almodóvar's Pain and Glory (a.k.a. Dolor y gloria) to snag his fifth Golden Globe nom. The Mask of Zorro star has earned salaries up to $12 million for his work, though his most successful commercial project to date remains Shrek 2, which brought in nearly $1 billion worldwide back in 2004, followed closely by Shrek the Third ($804 million), Shrek Forever After ($753 million) and his character's standalone movie, Puss in Boots ($555 million).
Annette Bening ("The Report"), Best Actress in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture
Annette Bening's estimated net worth: $48 millionAside from The Rise of Skywalker and Marriage Story, Driver also headlined The Report — but it was his co-star, the two-time Golden Globe-winning Bening, who was recognized in this project, for her performance as Senator Dianne Feinstein. The actress had appeared in six projects in 2019, but it was her superhero debut in Captain Marvel that may have upped her net worth — and fans in mainstream movies.

Joe Pesci ("The Irishman"), Best Actor in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture
Joe Pesci's estimated net worth: $50 millionNearly 20 years after he earned both Golden Globe and Oscar nominations for Goodfellas (and nearly 30 after his nods for Raging Bull), Pesci's turn as mobster Russell Bufalino in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman was enough to get him a nod. The actor's net worth isn't too shabby, likely because we see him dozens of times this time of year as wet bandit Harry Lyme in Home Alone.
Emma Thompson ("Late Night"), Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
Emma Thompson's estimated net worth: $50 millionUp for her third Golden Globe (she has nine nominations total), Thompson has been making her mark since 1991, at least on this side of the pond, when she starred alongside then-husband Kenneth Branagh in Dead Again, followed by Howard's End and Much Ado About Nothing. But it was in '95 where she truly became a force to be reckoned with, thanks to Sense and Sensibility, which she both wrote and starred. Her resume is sprinkled with all sorts of notable, wide-ranging credits including the Harry Potter series, Love Actually, the Nanny McPhee flicks, Wit, Angels in America and Late Night. Thompson will next be depositing paycheques for the upcoming Dolittle as well as Disney's live-action reboot, Cruella.

Renée Zellweger ("Judy"), Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama
Renée Zellweger's estimated net worth: $60 millionZellweger worked non-stop from the early '90s, all the way up to 2010, appearing in everything from the Bridget Jones movies, Nurse Betty and Jerry Maguire, to Cold Mountain, Chicago and Cinderella Man so it made sense that she needed to take a break. Her net worth may have been a bit larger had it not been for her six-year hiatus from show business but Zellweger's come back stronger than ever, and her indelible, immaculate performance as Judy Garland could earn the actress her fourth Globe.
Christian Bale ("Ford v Ferrari"), Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama
Christian Bale's estimated net worth: $80 millionBale may no longer be Batman but he certainly made a killing when he did play the Dark Knight. The actor was paid $15 million in the final film in the trilogy, bringing his total earnings to $54 million for the series. Money doesn't talk for Bale, who was reportedly offered $50 million to return to Gotham in the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice but he turned it down, and was ready to pass the torch to Ben Affleck (who has since handed it down to Robert Pattinson). And Bale's made an cinematic impact in other ways, from American Hustle to The Big Short to Vice and now Ford v Ferrari.

Cate Blanchett ("Where'd You Go, Bernadette"), Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
Cate Blanchett's estimated net worth: $85 millionBlanchett flip-flops between smaller films and blockbusters with ease, whether it's Thor: Ragnarok, Ocean's Eight and Cinderella or Blue Jasmine, Carol and Where'd You Go, Bernadette, the latest of which she is recognized for. But it's the big movies, along with lending her voice to some hit animated flicks like the Mowgli and the How to Train Your Dragon franchise, that boost her earnings higher and higher.
Al Pacino ("The Irishman"), Best Actor in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture
Al Pacino's estimated net worth: $120 millionOne of the most iconic actors in American films, who has earned accolades and awards in every decade in which he's acted (sooooooo, since the early '70s), it shouldn't be surprising that he's built up quite the net worth. Pacino made his mark in two movies in 2019 — Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood and the film for which he's nominated, The Irishman, playing teamster Jimmy Hoffa.

Daniel Craig ("Knives Out"), Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
Daniel Craig's estimated net worth: $130 millionIn 2015, the Knives Out actor, for which he earned his first-ever Globes nom, claimed he was done playing 007, saying the only reason he would do another is "for the money." Yet here we are, five years later, and he's got (at least) one final Bond, James Bond movie in him — and he certainly made them pay. For No Time to Die, Craig reportedly earned £50 million pounds, up from the £37 million he banked for 2015's Spectre.
Anthony Hopkins ("The Two Popes"), Best Actor in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture
Anthony Hopkins' estimated net worth: $160 millionThe 82-year-old has only one Golden Globe on his mantle — and that was the Cecil B. DeMille Award in 2006 (no, he did NOT win for his role in Silence of the Lambs, though he did nab the Oscar for his iconic turn of Hannibal Lector). Hopkins has had a diverse career (everything from Legends of the Fall, Surviving Picasso and Meet Joe Black, to RED 2, Thor and Transformers: The Last Knight); will his role as Pope Benedict earn him his second?

Charlize Theron ("Bombshell"), Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama
Charlize Theron's estimated net worth: $160 millionWhile her acting gigs certainly provide handsomely (The Huntsman, Fast and Furious and Atomic Blonde movies), it's might be her role as producer (TV series Mindhunter, Girlboss and Hyperdrive aforementioned Atomic Blonde and its upcoming sequel, as well as her most recent passion project, Bombshell) that truly brings in the cheddar.
Scarlett Johansson ("Marriage Story"), Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama
Scarlett Johansson's estimated net worth: $165 millionThe former indie actress monumentally increased her account balance when she joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe, scoring Johansson earns $15 million for the Avengers movies and the standalone, Black Widow (out later this year), as well as a percentage of box office. There's also the Captain America flicks, Lucy, Ghost in the Shell and Marriage Story, and she'll be sitting pretty for years to come.

Eddie Murphy ("Dolemite Is My Name"), Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
Eddie Murphy's estimated net worth: $200 millionThe '80s and '90s were dominated by Murphy but then he had a few flops. That is, until he voiced Donkey in the Shrek movies, which made him a hit for kids of all ages. He returned to the big screen in 2019 in Dolemite Is My Name, and will now capitalize on the sequels trend, bringing Prince Akeem and Axel Foley back to audiences in Coming 2 America and Beverly Hills Cop 4, respectively. And after his return to Saturday Night Live, the actor is in talks with Netflix to return to the standup stage — which will undoubtedly send his net worth over the top.
Leonardo DiCaprio ("Once Upon a Time in Hollywood"), Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
Leonardo DiCaprio's estimated net worth: $260 millionLeo's movies tend to garner praise from both critics and fans, which doesn't always rake in hundreds of millions of dollars but because they consistently perform, it's easy to see how he brings in this much bacon.

Brad Pitt ("Once Upon a Time in Hollywood"), Best Actor in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture
Brad Pitt's estimated net worth: $300 millionPitt's acting career is one thing (Fight Club, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, World War Z and the Ocean's Eleven franchise immediately spring to mind) but it's when he's got his producer hat on that gets him all kinds of acclaim — and bank. Pitt's been a producer on Eat Pray Love, Moneyball, 12 Years a Slave, Kick-Ass, Selma, Vice and If Beale Street Could Talk, just to name a handful).
Tom Hanks ("A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood"), Best Actor in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture
Tom Hanks' estimated net worth: $400 millionIt's only fitting that the nicest dude in Hollywood has also raked in a crap ton of money throughout his esteemed career, whether he's winning audience's hearts in the Toy Story movies or playing Mister Rogers, or producing the sequels to Mamma Mia!. And with no less than six projects on the go over the next year or so, he's only going to up that net worth.

Jennifer Lopez ("Hustlers"), Best Actress in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture
Jennifer Lopez's estimated net worth: $400 millionJust like the movie that is arguably earning her some of the most positive reviews in her career, JLo herself is a hustler, balancing her gigs on the big screen, tackling reality television and killing it in music, we'd suggest she put her feet up and take a little time off but not sure if she knows how or even wants to. Get it, girl.
