"Top Gun Maverick," which stars Downingtown native Miles Teller, was nominated for best drama. Berks County native Taylor Swift was nominated for best original song for "Carolina," from the movie "Where the Crawdads sing." Eddie Redmayne received a nomination for best supporting actor in a movie for his role in "The Good Nurse," a film based on a true story about a serial killer in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
