With six nominations, Netflix’s divorce drama “Marriage Story” is the leading contender for 77th Golden Globe Awards, which will be presented January 5, 2020, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Ricky Gervais will host the ceremony. NBC has the U.S. telecast of the show, which begins at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) votes for the nominations and awards. The HFPA and Dick Clark Productions are producing the Golden Globe Awards telecast. Eligible movies are feature-length films released in the U.S. for at least one week in 2019. Eligible TV shows are those that aired new episodes on U.S. TV networks or streaming services in 2019.

“Marriage Story” picked up expected nominations for in the Motion Picture – Drama categories: Best Picture, Best Actor (Adam Driver)and Best Actress (Scarlett Johansson). The other “Marriage Story” nominations are for Best Screenplay (Noah Baumbauch), Best Supporting Actress (Laura Dern) and Best Original Score (Randy Newman). Other movies with multiple nominations are Netflix’s “The Irishman” and Columbia Pictures’ “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” which have five nods each.  Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Joker” and Netflix’s “The Two Popes” have four nominations each, while Neon’s “Parasite,” Universal Pictures’ “1917,” and Paramount Pictures’ “Rocketman” each earned three nods.

For television, HBO’s “Chernobyl,” Netflix’s “The Crown” and Netflix’s “Unbelievable” are the leading contenders, with four nominations each. HBO’s “Barry,” HBO’s “Succession,” Amazon’s “Fleabag,” HBO’s “Big Little Lies,” FX’s “Fosse/ Verdon,” Netflix’s “The Kominsky Method” and Apple TV+’s “The Morning Show” scored three nominations each.

Snubs and Surprises

The most noticeable Golden Globes snub this year was Netflix’s award-winning, critically acclaimed limited drama series “When They See Us” (created by Ava DuVernay), which told the story about the wrongful convictions of the Central Park Five, but failed to get any Golden Globe nominations. The snub is all the more noticeable, considering that “When They See Us” had 10 Emmy nominations and ended up winning one: Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or a Movie, which went to Jharrel Jerome. Other Golden Globe TV snubs this year included “This Is Us” and “Schitt’s Creek,” which each received multiple Emmy nods this year. Also shut out of the Golden Globes race are the movies “Uncut Gems,” “Honey Boy,” “Clemency,” “The Lighthouse” and “Waves,” which have all received several nominations and some wins at independent film awards.

In terms of surprises, the murder mystery “Knives Out” picked up three nods in the Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy field: Best Picture, Best Actor (Daniel Craig) and Best Actress (Ana de Armas). Although there are some jokes in “Knives Out,” it can hardly be considered a comedy, since it’s an Agatha Christie-styled mystery drama.  It’s yet another example of how the Golden Globe Awards put nominees from movie dramas in the Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy categories. Other examples this year include Awkwafina from “The Farewell” and Cate Blanchett from “Where’d You Go, Bernadette?,” who each received nominations for Best Actress, while the Manson Family murder drama “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” picked up nods for Best Picture and Best Actor (for Leonardo DiCaprio).

Diversity and Inclusion

In terms of diversity, the major movie categories each had at least one person of color as a nominee. Asians had the highest representation this year in the movie categories, with the South Korean drama “Parasite” (three nods), the Chinese American film “The Farewell” (two nods) and “Jojo Rabbit,” whose director/producer/co-star Taika Waititi is of Māori descent.

Latinos were represented most by the Spanish film “Pain and Glory,” which got nominations for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama (for Antonio Banderas). The aforementioned “Knives Out” co-star de Armas, who is Cuban, was also nominated, while “Hustlers” co-star Jennifer Lopez picked up a nod for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture.

Black people had representation in the movie categories with Eddie Murphy from “Dolemite Is My Name” (Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy); Cynthia Erivo from “Harriet” (Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama and Best Original Song); Beyoncé from “The Lion King” (Best Original Song); and the French drama “Les Misérables” (Best Foreign Language Film), which has a black director and a predominantly black cast.

People of color are underrepresented in the TV categories. All of the nominees are white in most of the TV categories this year, which would not have happened if “When They See Us” repeated its Emmy nominations. Meanwhile, African American actor Billy Porter from “Pose” and Egyptian American actors Rami Malek from “Mr. Robot” and Ramy Youssef from “Ramy” were the only people of color to get nominations in the TV categories. Porter and Malek are contenders in the category of Best Actor in a TV Series – Drama, while Youssef is nominated for Best Actor in a TV Series – Musical or Comedy. Native Americans, who are severely underrepresented in entertainment, received no nominations in any of the Golden Globe categories.

In the categories of Best Director and Best Original Score, all of the nominees are men. (The Golden Globes have been shutting out women in these categories for years.) Women were also snubbed this year in the category of Best Screenplay. Possible nominees in the screenplay category could have been writer/director Greta Gerwig for “Little Women” and Krysty Wilson-Cairns, who co-wrote “1917” with director Sam Mendes.

The LGBTQ community is represented in the movie categories with the Elton John musical biopic “Rocketman,” which received three nominations; “Pain and Glory,” which is inspired by a dysfunctional period of time in the life of the film’s openly gay director, Pedro Almodóvar; and the French lesbian drama “Portrait of a Lady on Fire,” which is nominated for Best Foreign Language Film. For television, the LGBTQ community picked up two nods for “The Politician”— Best Comedy Series and Best Actor in a Comedy Series (for Ben Platt) — while the aforementioned Porter from “Pose” received an expected Golden Globe nod, since he received an Emmy Award for the role.

2020 Golden Globe Awards: Ricky Gervais returns as host

November 12, 2019

The following is a press release from Dick Clark Productions and NBC:

Global comedy superstar Ricky Gervais, in his unique and legendary fashion, will resume hosting duties for a record fifth time at the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards. The three-hour telecast will air live on NBC coast to coast Sunday, January 5, 2020 at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT from The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.

The Golden Globes serve as the official kickoff to the 2020 awards season. 25 categories — 14 in film and 11 in television — are voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).

“Once again, they’ve made me an offer I can’t refuse. But this is the very last time I’m doing this, which could make for a fun evening,” said Gervais.

“There is always a palpable electricity in the room when Ricky takes the Globes stage. His return as master of ceremonies at the Golden Globes is much anticipated,” said Paul Telegdy, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “It is sure to make for an unexpected evening. We can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeve.”

“When Ricky Gervais is at the helm of the Golden Globes Awards, we can always expect the unexpected,” said President of the HFPA Lorenzo Soria. “We’re excited to see it all unfold on Jan. 5!”

“In a world where many award shows are opting to go the no host route, the Golden Globes are going all in! It’s going to be a great night,” added Mike Mahan, CEO, Dick Clark Productions.

Last January’s NBC telecast of “The 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards” averaged 18.6 million viewers in “live plus same day” Nielsens, delivering the biggest audience for a primetime telecast, excluding news and sports, in 10 months, since the prior March’s Academy Awards. The Jan. 6 “Golden Globes” coverage also generated a year-to-year increase in the key adults 18-49 demographic, with a 5.2 rating vs. a 5.0. That 5.2 more than quadrupled NBC’s non-sports 18-49 average in the timeslot the previous season and the audience of 18.6 million was up 13.5 million persons versus the prior season’s average.

Creator and star of “The Office” and “Extras,” Ricky Gervais has won three Golden Globes, two Primetime Emmys and seven BAFTAS. “The Office” is the most successful British comedy of all time, shown in more than 90 countries with seven remakes. The NBC version is the most successful U.S. remake of a British show in more than 30 years.

Gervais hosted the Golden Globes in 2010-12 and returned for a fourth time in 2016.

Considered the most influential British comedian since Charlie Chaplin, Gervais is an award-winning stand-up comedian, with five international tours to date. His live stand up show “Fame” became the fastest selling UK stand-up show in history.

Gervais can most recently be seen in the dark comedy “After Life,” which he created, directs, stars in and executive produced. The series premiered March 8 worldwide on Netflix and will return for a second season in 2020.

In 2017, Gervais toured worldwide with his first stand-up special in seven years. “Humanity,” which was also recorded as a Netflix special, takes aim at human behavior with his trademark wit. He recently embarked on his follow up tour, “SuperNature,” which will also be released on Netflix.

Gervais is featured in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most downloaded Internet show of all time. He was named in Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World and awarded the Sir Peter Ustinov Comedy Award from the Banff World Television Festival.

The Golden Globe Awards, often referred to as “Hollywood’s Party of the Year,” is one of the biggest nights on the calendar for live viewing. It’s also one of the few awards shows that combine the honorees of both film and television. The 2019 Golden Globe Awards telecast averaged a 5.2 rating in adults 18-49 and 18.6 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Produced by Dick Clark Productions in association with the HFPA, the Golden Globe Awards are viewed in more than 210 territories worldwide. Lorenzo Soria is President of the HFPA. Mike Mahan, CEO of Dick Clark Productions and Barry Adelman, Executive VP of Television at Dick Clark Productions will serve as executive producers.

The following is a press release from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and Dick Clark Productions:

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced that three-time Golden Globe nominee Ellen DeGeneres will receive the Carol Burnett Award. The beloved household name is the second recipient to be honored with the accolade, the first having been its namesake, Carol Burnett. DeGeneres will accept the honor at Hollywood’s Party of the Year(R) on Sunday, January 5, 2020 airing LIVE coast-to-coast from 5:00-8:00 p.m. PT/8:00-11:00 p.m. ET on NBC.

“The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is delighted to honor Ellen DeGeneres with the Carol Burnett Award,” said Lorenzo Soria, President of the HFPA. “From her sitcoms, to stand-up, to becoming a household staple on daytime television, she is a pioneer who has captivated audiences for nearly 25 years with her undeniable charm and wit. In addition to her television success, she’s an advocate and philanthropist, lending her voice to those who don’t have one, and spreading kindness and joy through the power of her platform. We look forward to celebrating her achievements at this year’s ceremony.”

Chosen by the HFPA Board of Directors, the Carol Burnett Award is presented annually to an honoree who has made outstanding contributions to the television medium on or off the screen. As the television landscape continues to evolve with more thought-provoking programming, diverse roles and best in class content, the HFPA established the Carol Burnett Award to celebrate the medium’s new Golden Age. Equivalent to its film accolade counterpart, the Cecil B. DeMille Award, the top honor was first introduced at the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

DeGeneres’ career began as an emcee at a local comedy club in her hometown of New Orleans. Her acting career in television included roles in several successful sitcoms before being offered a part in “These Friends of Mine” by ABC. Following the first season, the show was renamed “Ellen.” Running from 1994 to 1998, the show garnered record ratings with DeGeneres receiving multiple Golden Globe and Primetime Emmy nominations. In 1997, DeGeneres was the recipient of the coveted Peabody Award and earned a Primetime Emmy Award for writing the critically acclaimed “Puppy Episode” where her character came out as a gay woman to a record 46 million viewers.

She has made a home for herself in daytime with her hit syndicated talk show, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” and recently announced the show’s renewal through the 2021-2022 season. Currently, in its seventeenth season, the show has earned a total of 63 Daytime Emmy(R) Awards, including 11 for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show crowning it the record holder in this category. In addition, DeGeneres has won 12 Teen Choice Awards, and she is a 21-time People’s Choice Awards winner, making her the most decorated individual in the 44-year history of the franchise. Most recently, DeGeneres won her fourth Kids’ Choice Award for Favorite TV Host for “Ellen’s Game of Games.”

In November 2016, DeGeneres was honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom presented by President Obama. The prestigious award is the nation’s highest civilian honor and was bestowed on DeGeneres for her extraordinary contributions to notable change and progress in the United States. She was also presented with the 15th Annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in October 2012.

She also received critical success for her HBO stand-up specials: “The Beginning” received two Primetime Emmy nominations in 2001 and “Here and Now” was nominated for two Primetime Emmys in 2003. In 2018, DeGeneres returned to her stand-up comedy roots after a 15-year hiatus with the critically acclaimed Netflix comedy special, “Relatable.”

DeGeneres’ production company, A Very Good Production (AVGP), is currently producing a wide range of television including NBC’s fan-favorite game show, “Ellen’s Game of Games,” a new NBC special event series, “Ellen’s Greatest Night of Giveaways,” NBC’s hit series “Little Big Shots,” “Green Eggs and Ham” for Netflix, Discovery Channel’s “Wildlife Warriors,” and many more. In September 2019, Ellen announced HBO Max, the upcoming direct-to-consumer offering from WarnerMedia, ordered four original series including “Ellen’s Home Design Challenge,” “First Dates Hotel,” “Little Ellen,” as well as the docu-series “Finding Einstein.”

Both on and off-screen, DeGeneres’ humanitarian efforts take center stage. In 2018, DeGeneres established The Ellen Fund, which supports global conservation efforts for critically endangered species. The first initiative of the fund is to build The Ellen DeGeneres Campus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund. The campus will permanently secure the future of wild gorillas in Rwanda by building on successful field conservation efforts while empowering the people living near the gorillas to thrive in relationship to their ecosystem. This project allows Ellen to carry on the legacy of her hero, visionary scientist Dian Fossey, joining her as a protector and champion of the critically endangered mountain gorilla. DeGeneres has also brought awareness to the anti-bullying issue by creating a PSA titled, “Be Kind.” Overall, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has raised over $95 million for various causes.

Produced by Dick Clark Productions in association with the HFPA, the Golden Globe Awards are viewed in more than 210 territories worldwide. Lorenzo Soria is president of the HFPA. Mike Mahan, CEO of Dick Clark Productions and Barry Adelman, Executive VP of Television at Dick Clark Productions will serve as executive producers.

2019 Golden Globe Awards: ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ ‘Green Book’ win big

January 6, 2019

by Carla Hay

Golden Globes trophy

“Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Green Book” were the top movie winners at the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards, which took place at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, on January 6, 2019. NBC had the U.S. telecast of the 2019 Golden Globe Awards, which was hosted by Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh. Dick Clark Productions produced the show. The Golden Globe Awards are voted for by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Eligible movies were those with U.S. release dates in 2018, while eligible TV shows were those that televised new episodes in the U.S. in 2018.

“Bohemian Rhapsody,” the official biopic of rock band Queen and its lead singer Freddie Mercury, won the two prizes for which it was nominated:  Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama (for Rami Malek, who played Mercury). The victories for “Bohemian Rhapsody” no doubt surprised the many pundits who predicted that the 2018 remake of “A Star Is Born” and its leading actor Bradley Cooper would take those prizes.

Meanwhile, “Green Book,” which told the true story of an unlikely friendship that developed in 1962 between highly educated pianist Don Shirley and blue-collar driver Tony “Lip” Vallelonga, won the most prizes (three) at the 2019 Golden Globes: Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy; Best Supporting Actor (for Mahershala Ali, who plays Shirley); and Best Screenplay.

Other multiple winners, with two prizes each, were the Spanish-language drama “Roma”; the miniseries “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”; and the comedy series “The Kominsky Method.” As expected, the Alfonso Cuarón-directed “Roma” won the prizes for Best Director and Best Foreign Language Film.

Besides “Bohemian Rhapsody” taking the top movie drama prize, the other big surprise win in the movie categories was Glenn Close of “The Wife,” who won Best Actress in a  Motion Picture – Drama, instead of the widely predicted Lady Gaga of the 2018 remake of “A Star Is Born.”  In the end, 2018’s “A Star Is Born” won just one Golden Globe: Best Original Song, for “Shallow,” which was co-written by Lady Gaga. “Vice,” which went into the ceremony with the most nominations (six), ultimately won just one Golden Globe: Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, which went to Christian Bale for his portrayal of former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney. Bale had been widely predicted to win the award. Another widely predicted victory was Olivia Colman of “The Favourite,” who won for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.

In the TV categories, first-time Golden Globe winner Richard Madden of “Bodyguard” was a surprise win for Best Actor in a Television Series – Drama, instead of the Matthew Rhys of “The Americans,” who won an Emmy for the show’s final season. However, “The Americans” did win the prize for Best Television Series – Drama, as expected. For the prize of Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy, “The Kominsky Method” triumphed over “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” the category’s previous Golden Globe winner. However, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” star Rachel Brosnahan repeated her Golden Globe win from 2018 to take the prize again for Best Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy.  Meanwhile, Michael Douglas of “The Kominsky Method” won the award for Best Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy. “The Kominsky Method” debuted in the second half of 2018, and will be eligible for the Emmy Awards for the first time in 2019.

“The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story,” which won several Emmys in 2018, was the leading TV nominee going into the Golden Globes, with four nominations. As expected, the two Golden Globes it won were for Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, while Darren Criss (who played serial killer Andrew Cunanan) won for Best Actor in a Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. Golden Globes co-host Oh of “Killing Eve” won the prize for Best Actress in a Television Series – Drama.

In the non-competitive categories, Jeff Bridges received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for career achievement, while Carol Burnett was the first recipient of the Carol Burnett Award, which is given for outstanding contributions to television.

Presenters at the Golden Globe Awards included Halle Berry, Kristen Bell, Emily Blunt, Chadwick Boseman, Sterling K. Brown, Steve Carell,  Jessica Chastain, Olivia Colman, Bradley Cooper, Kaley Cuoco, Jamie Lee Curtis, Dick Van Dyke, Taron Egerton, Idris Elba, Harrison Ford, Johnny Galecki, Richard Gere, Danai Gurira, Justin Hartley, Amber Heard, Taraji P. Henson, Felicity Huffman, Allison Janney, Michael B. Jordan, Nicole Kidman, Lady Gaga, Lucy Liu, William H. Macy, Chrissy Metz, Mike Myers, Julianne Moore, Bill Murray, Lupita Nyong’o, Gary Oldman, Jim Parsons,  Amy Poehler, Sam Rockwell, Gina Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Saoirse Ronan, Octavia Spencer, Ben Stiller, Emma Stone, Taylor Swift, Lena Waithe, Rachel Weisz and Catherine Zeta-Jones

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced today that Golden Globe winner and four-time nominee Jeff Bridges will be honored with the 2019 Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, January 6, 2019.

HFPA President Meher Tatna stated, “The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is delighted to bestow the 2019 Cecil B. DeMille Award on Jeff Bridges. Bridges’ brilliant body of work across diverse genres has captured the hearts and minds of audiences worldwide for more than six decades.  We look forward to celebrating ‘The Dude’ and his remarkable career and philanthropic achievements at the upcoming Golden Globe Awards.”

Chosen by the HFPA Board of Directors, the Cecil B. DeMille Award is given annually to a talented individual who has made a lasting impact on the world of entertainment. Honorees over the decades include George Clooney, Robert De Niro, Audrey Hepburn, Harrison Ford, Jodie Foster, Sophia Loren, Sidney Poitier, Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Meryl Streep, Barbra Streisand, Denzel Washington, Robin Williams, Oprah Winfrey, and many more.

Bridges’ moving and multi-layered performances have earned him countless accolades including a Golden Globe win for his performance in “Crazy Heart.”

The actor’s multi-faceted career includes the cult classic “The Big Lebowski.” His first Golden Globe nomination came in 1984 for Best Actor in “Starman.” Seven years later he received his second Golden Globe nomination for his performance in “The Fisher King,” co-starring Robin Williams. In 2001, he was honored with another Golden Globe nomination for his role in “The Contender,” Rod Lurie’s political thriller, co-starring Gary Oldman and Joan Allen, in which Bridges played the President of the United States.

In 2017, he received another Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor as a retiring Texas Ranger in “Hell or High Water,” a modern action bank heist thriller set in West Texas.  The critically acclaimed film starred Chris Pine, Ben Foster and Gil Birmingham.

Through Bridges’ company, AsIs Productions, he produced “Hidden in America,” which received a Golden Globe nomination in 1996 for Best Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television.

Bridges most recently appeared in 20th Century Fox’s mystery thriller “Bad Times at the El Royale” starring Chris Hemsworth, Jon Hamm and Dakota Johnson. Additionally, Bridges can be seen in “Living in The Future’s Past,” a documentary directed by Susan Kucera that focuses on current environmental challenges.

In 1983, Bridges founded the End Hunger Network, a nonprofit organization dedicated to feeding children around the world.

He is currently the national spokesman for the Share Our Strength/No Kid Hungry campaign that is fighting to end childhood hunger in America.

2019 Golden Globe Awards: ‘Vice’ leads movie nominations, ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace’ is the top TV nominee

December 6, 2018

Golden Globes trophy

With six nominations, the dark comedy “Vice” is the leading contender at the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards, which will take place at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, on January 6, 2019. The miniseries “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story,” which won several Emmy Awards, has the most Golden Globe nominations in the TV field, getting four nods. NBC will have the U.S. telecast of the 2019 Golden Globe Awards, which will be hosted by Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh. Dick Clark Productions is producing the show. The Golden Globe Awards are voted for by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Eligible movies are those with U.S. release dates in 2018, while eligible TV shows were those that televised new episodes in the U.S. in 2018.

As expected, “Vice” (which could be considered a drama or a dark comedy) was nominated in the Musical or Comedy categories, including Best Picture, Best Actor (for Christian Bale, who plays former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney in the movie); Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture (for Amy Adams, who plays Lynne Cheney, Dick Cheney’s wife); Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture (for Sam Rockwell, who plays former U.S. President George W. Bush); Best Director (for Adam McKay); and Best Screenplay.

The Peter Farrelly-directed “Green Book,” starring Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali, picked up five nods, and faces off against “Vice” in all the same categories except Best Supporting Actress. “The Favourite,” which also received five nominations, is competing for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Best Screenplay, while star Oliva Colman is up for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, and co-stars Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone have nominations for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture. Other movies that have several nominations are “A Star Is Born,” “BlacKkKlansman” and “Mary Poppins Returns,” which received four nods each.

The nominations for “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” include Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. Also getting nominated are lead actor Darren Criss (who played serial killer Andrew Cunanan), supporting actor Édgar Ramírez (who played Gianni Versace) and supporting actress Penélope Cruz (who played Donatella Versace).

Other TV shows with several nominations are “The Americans,” “Barry,” “Homecoming,” “The Kominsky Method,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “Sharp Objects,” which have three nods each. “The Americans” (which had its final season in 2018), “Barry” (which had its first season in 2018) and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” (whose first season debuted in 2017) already won Emmys in 2018. Critically acclaimed new series “Homecoming,” “The Kominsky Method” and “Sharp Objects” premiered in the second half of 2018, and will be eligible for the 2019 Emmy Awards, as will the second season of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” “Sharp Objects” star Amy Adams and “Seven Seconds” star Regina King have achieved a rare milestone of being nominated for a TV show and a movie in the same year at the Golden Globes. In the category of Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture, Adams is nominated for “Vice,” while King received a nod for “If Beale Street Could Talk.”

Movie Snubs and Surprises

“First Man,” the drama about astronaut Neil Armstrong and his historic voyage as the first man on the moon, was considered an early frontrunner since it was was getting recognition at film festivals, but that buzz has considerably quieted due to criticism the movie has received for being emotionally distant and not patriotic enough. “First Man” also disappointed at the box office. “First Man,” directed by Damien Chazelle and starring Ryan Gosling as Armstrong, was snubbed in the two categories many people had predicted the movie would get nominated: Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Director. However, “First Man” did get nominations for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture (for Claire Foy, who plays Armstrong’s first wife Janet) and Best Original Score (for Justin Hurwitz, a previous winner of this award for “La La Land”). “First Reformed,” a drama starring Ethan Hawke as a clergyman with secrets, has been winning several awards from critics and at shows honoring independent films, but the movie was completely snubbed by the Golden Globes. And although “Mary Poppins Returns” received a nod for Best Original Score, the movie musical failed to get any nominations for Best Original Song. It should be noted that the Spanish-language “Roma,” which has been getting several critics’ awards, was not eligible for a Golden Globe nomination for Best Picture because Golden Globe rules prevent a movie to be nominated for both Best Picture and Best Foreign-Language Film. However, as expected, “Roma” is nominated for Best Foreign-Language Film, where it is a clear frontrunner.

As for surprises in the movie categories, the critically acclaimed blockbuster “Black Panther” made Golden Globes history as the first superhero movie to get a Best Picture nomination, although some awards pundits had predicted this nomination would happen. However, unlike all the other nominees in the Best Picture categories, “Black Panther” did not get any nominations for acting, directing or screenwriting, which does not bode well for the movie’s chances of winning. The little-seen independent film “A Private War,” starring Rosamund Pike as real-life war journalist Marie Colvin, picked up two nominations: Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama and Best Original Song (for Annie Lennox’s “Requiem for a Private War”). Meanwhile, Robert Redford was nominated for Best Actor for the dramatic film “The Old Man and the Gun,” but not in the category people would expect. His nomination was in the Musical or Comedy category, not Drama. The Golden Globes often get criticism for placing dramatic films in the musical or comedy categories, and this is another example of that misplacement.

TV Snubs and Surprises

In the TV categories, Emmy Award winners “Game of Thrones” and “The Crown” were ineligible for Golden Globe nominations this year since the shows did not have any new episodes in 2018. Previous Golden Globe winners “This Is Us,” “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Atlanta” failed to get nominations in the Best Series categories. “This Is Us” was completely shut out of the race by not getting any Golden Globe nods, which might indicate that Golden Globe voters have grown weary of “This Is Us” melodrama. “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Atlanta” were snubbed, respectively, in the categories of Best Drama Series and Best Musical or Comedy Series, although the show’s stars (Elisabeth Moss of “A Handmaid’s Tale” and Donald Glover of “Atlanta”) did get nominated for their leading roles in the series. “Westworld” only received one nomination: Best Supporting Actress (for Thandie Newton, who won an Emmy this year for her role in “Westworld”). “House of Cards,” which had its final season in 2018, used to get multiple Golden Globe nominations, but was completely shut out of the race again this year. It seems that the sexual misconduct scandals of former “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey still have had repercussions for the show. And multiple Emmy winner “Saturday Night Live,” which has never really been celebrated at the Golden Globes, failed to get any Golden Globe nominations again this year.

TV nomination surprises include three new series: “Kidding” received two nods: Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy and Best Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy (for Jim Carrey, who stars in series as the host of a children’s TV show). “Pose,” about drag-queen culture in New York City, also picked up two nods: Best Television Series – Drama and Best Actor in a Television Series – Drama (for Billy Porter). “Bodyguard,” another surprise nominee, is competing in the same two categories as “Pose,” with Richard Madden up for the Best Actor prize. All three shows, which premiered in the second half of 2018, will be eligible for the 2019 Emmy Awards. Meanwhile, even though the “Murphy Brown” revival received mixed-to-negative reviews from critics and has now be canceled, the comedy show’s star Candice Bergen received a surprise nomination.

The following is a press release from Dick Clark Productions and NBC:

Sandra Oh, star of the critically acclaimed BBC America drama series “Killing Eve,” and Andy Samberg, star of NBC’s Golden Globe-winning comedy “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” will co-host the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

The three-hour telecast will air live on NBC coast to coast Sunday, January 6 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT from The Beverly Hilton.

The Golden Globes serve as the official kickoff to the 2019 awards season. Winners in 25 categories — 14 in film and 11 in television — are voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).

“Sandra and Andy are the perfect choices to host this world-class event,” said Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, Co-Chairmen, NBC Entertainment. “They bring wit, charm and style to a room filled with the very best of film and television. It’s sure to be another unforgettable fun-filled night.”

“We’re excited to welcome Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg as co-hosts of Hollywood’s Party of the Year,” said HFPA President Meher Tatna. “Both Golden Globe Award recipients have continually showcased their talents in film and television, and we can’t wait see what their undeniable chemistry will bring to the Golden Globes stage.”

“We are thrilled to have Sandra and Andy co-hosting the Golden Globes,” said Mike Mahan, Executive Producer and CEO, dick clark productions. “This innovative pairing sets the perfect tone for the most entertaining awards celebration of the year.”

Oh currently serves as co-executive producer and earned an Emmy Award nomination for Lead Actress in a Drama for BBC America’s “Killing Eve” as Eve Polastri, an MI5 officer who hunts down and becomes entangled with a cold-blooded female assassin. Previously, Oh starred as Dr. Cristina Yang on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” for which she won a 2006 Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, a Screen Actors Guild Award for Female Actor in a Drama Series and five Emmy nominations for Supporting Actress in a Drama. Oh’s film credits include “Sideways,” “Under the Tuscan Sun,” “Catfight” and “Meditation Park,” and she produced the animated film “Window Horses: The Poetic Persian Epiphany of Rosie Ming” as well as voicing the title character.

In 2014, Samberg was a two-time Golden Globe winner for “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” winning Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy and as a producer on the show for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy.  Prior to that, Samberg was a cast member on “Saturday Night Live” from 2005-12.  His work on NBC’s iconic late night franchise earned him an Emmy Award and six additional Emmy nominations for his work with The Lonely Island and their digital shorts. The Lonely Island has also been nominated for three Grammys. In 2015, Samberg hosted the 67th annual Primetime Emmy® Awards and in 2013, hosted the Film Independent Spirit Awards.

The new season of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” begins Thursday, Jan. 10 at 9 p.m. on NBC.

The Golden Globe Awards, often referred to as “Hollywood’s Party of the Year,” is one of the biggest nights on the calendar for live viewing. It’s also one of the few awards shows that combine the honorees of both film and television.

The 2018 Golden Globe Awards telecast averaged a 5.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 19 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research, putting it ahead of every show on television from the previous 10 months in total viewers, since the prior year’s Academy Awards. The Golden Globes led NBC to the nightlong win in total viewers despite NFL playoff competition.

Produced by dick clark productions in association with the HFPA, the Golden Globe Awards are viewed in more than 210 territories worldwide.

Meher Tatna is President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Allen Shapiro, Executive Chairman of dick clark productions, Mike Mahan, CEO of dick clark productions and Barry Adelman, Executive VP of Television at dick clark productions, will serve as executive producers.
 
About the Hollywood Foreign Press Association

All qualified journalists were accepted, with the bold goal of “Unity Without Discrimination of Religion or Race.” A year later, the HFCA created the Golden Globe Awards which, to this day, the entire membership selects, votes on and awards every year for outstanding achievements in motion pictures and television. This year marked the 75th anniversary of the Golden Globe Awards. Members of the HFPA represent 56 countries with a combined readership of 250 million in some of the world’s most respected publications.
