SA stays winning in the international arena, with Charlize Theron scooping a prestigious Golden Globe nomination.

Charlize was nominated in the Best Actress in a Motion Picture — Drama category for her role in Bombshell.

She plays a news anchor in the movie, which centres on female Fox News employees' allegations against CEO Roger Ailes.

The SA-born actress will be up against Cynthia Erivo, Saoirse Ronan, Renée Zellweger and Scarlett Johansson.

Margot Robbie was also nominated in the category for her role in the film.

Charlize, one of the movie's producers, shared her gratitude on Twitter: “As a producer on Bombshell, I feel extra grateful about my and Margot’s nominations today. We fought to get this movie made because we thought now more than ever this was an important story to tell. Thank you so much to the HFPA Golden Globes.”

Charlize also took to Instagram to joke about snorting putty in excitement at the nod. Yes, that's a thing.

“So happy about this Golden Globe nomination I just had to snort some putty. Beyond grateful this morning. Crazy how far Bombshell has come, from these early prosthetics tests (I only ever snort putty for Kazu Hiro, for the record) to some amazing news this morning. Thank you HFPA for this honor.”
