Cheney biopic 'Vice' tops Golden Globes nominations; Thomasin McKenzie misses out

  • Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg to co-host Globes

The Americans, Bodyguard, Homecoming, Killing Eve, and Pose received nominees for Best Television Series - Drama, while Barry, The Good Place, Kidding, The Kominsky Method, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel were nominated for Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy.

British actress Olivia Colman won a best actress nod for her turn as a petulant Queen Anne in the Fox Searchlight FOXA.O historical romp "The Favourite", along with supporting stars Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz. That was down slightly from the 2017 show to a six-year demo low, but still ranked as the most watched awards show since the Oscars.

The nominations for the 2019 Golden Globes Awards were announced Thursday morning, and while a few films with local ties came out well, others underperformed expectations. "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". Bradley Cooper's take on A Star Is Born was recognized in almost all of the show's top categories - best drama, best director, best actor, best actress, best original song - which only makes Elliott's lack of a nomination more baffling. Really, what might be more shocking is that this is Wu's first ever Globes nomination.

TNT received surprise nominations for the boring "The Alienist" - for limited series and for its star, the German actor Daniel Brühl.

The ceremony, conducted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, will be held on January 6. But the film did score two interesting nominations, Justin Hurwitz for his score, and Claire Foy for her supporting role as Armstrong's wife Janet. So were Better Call Saul, Black-ish, Maniac, and The Little Drummer Girl.

Debra Messing and Candice Bergen: Though the reboot of "Will and Grace" has been recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press in the past, Debra Messing hasn't secured her own nomination for playing Grace Adler since its original iteration went off the air. This year, she became the first actress of Asian ethnicity to receive an Emmy nomination for drama series lead, for Killing Eve.

Samberg is a former Saturday Night Live, cast member and a previous Golden Globe victor for television comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine. It's not that Reilly was completely off our radar, but we never imagined his nomination - for Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy - would be for this Laurel and Hardy romp.
