Golden Globes 2019: Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg to Host

Adjust Comment Print

Category-based drama is nearly always an issue with this awards show, since studios are notorious for jockeying between competitions that sort-of fit (even sometimes making major stretches) while campaigning for projects that can arguably slide into different boxes.

Poland's "Cold War", one of the most highly acclaimed foreign language films of the year, was shockingly shut out of the foreign language category. On the TV front, This Is Us was completely ignored. "They bring wit, charm, and style to a room filled with the very best of film and television".

And like every year, there is a slew of snubs and surprises when the Golden Globe Awards announced nominations in TV and film excellence.

Up for best picture comedy alongside Vice are Yorgas Lanthimos' wild palace power struggle The Favourite, Peter Farrelly's divisive crowd-pleaser Green Book, the upcoming Disney sequel Mary Poppins Returns and the rom-com hit Crazy Rich Asians.

Oh will be the first person of colour ever to host the event. Even though Queen fans loved the movie (and there were no doubts that Rami Malek would be nominated everywhere), there's still some lingering ruckus about the movie's timeline-tweaking of Mercury's illness as well as the alleged downplaying of his private life.

"Black Panther" is doubly significant because the movie offered such a powerful showcase for African-American talent both in front of and behind the camera, just a few years after the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag came into being in response to the absence of people of color in acting categories.

Even though she's been there and done that with the Globes, she's still positioned to make history if she wins again. But the film and Hawke were left out completely. Likewise, Toni Collette was expected to gain a nod for her terrifyingly transformative turn in A24's Hereditary, and that didn't happen.

For some actors, including the casts of "Vice" and "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story", Thursday morning's Golden Globe nominations announcement was cause for celebration. It arrives in theaters December 25.

Overall, the Dick Cheney biopic Vice received six nominations, the most of any film, with a supporting actor nomination for Sam Rockwell, a supporting actress nomination for Amy Adams, a lead actor nomination for Christian Bale, and director and screenplay nomination for Adam McKay. We will know on January 7, the morning after.
