The Golden Globes 2019: The Surprises And Snubs

  • Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg to co-host Globes

And to prove how perspicacious the Hollywood Foreign Press can be, it awarded Sacha Baron Cohen a stealth nod for best actor in comedy series for Showtime's "Who Is America?", presenting a threat to Douglas, Donald Glover ("Atlanta"), Jim Carrey ("Kidding") and this year's Emmy victor Bill Hader ("Barry").

On the TV side, Amazon's "Homecoming" and Ryan Murphy's "Pose" may score nominations in their first eligible awards show.

The as-yet-unnamed award will function as the equivalent to its film-centric HFPA counterpart, the Cecil B. DeMille Award, which has gone to icons like Oprah Winfrey, Meryl Streep, Denzel Washington, and George Clooney in recent years. But when nominations come out and one of the best shows, let alone best comedies, on TV isn't nominated, I'm not sure what to call that.

After giving one heck of an audition at this year's Emmy Awards, Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh got the gig: The Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Killing Eve stars will co-host the 76th Annual Golden Globes, TVLine has learned.

China-US Ceasefire Paves Way For New LNG Projects
The United States and China are locked in a dispute over their trade imbalance and Beijing's tech policies. But Mnuchin said, "I think there's no question the president's tariff strategy has worked".

Oh is now riding high on the critical and ratings success of her new series, BBC America's "Killing Eve". Rami Malek's road to the Oscars continues with a Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama nomination, while the not-exactly-raved-about Queen biopic scored a nomination for Best Motion Picture - Drama - not Musical or Comedy. The nod for Black Panther marked Marvel Studios' first best picture nomination at the Globes, a feat it is hoping to repeat at the Academy Awards.

Curiously, the Hollywood Foreign Press doesn't consider foreign-language films for best film, so Alfonso Cuaron's Netflix drama "Roma" was left out of the Globes' top category.

Samberg and Oh did a test run as co-presenters at the Primetime Emmy Awards in September, which aired on NBC. Canadian actress Sandra Oh and US comedian Andy Samberg will co-host the awards show. Since then, he has hosted four times, Fey and Poehler three times, with NBC's late-night stars Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers taking turns the last two years.

The Golden Globe Awards, like many shows of its kind, is caught up in a downward spiral of viewer indifference. Then again, Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman was mostly shut out of the Indie Spirits, but it received a Best Drama nomination from the Globes, so there's that. The first recipients of this award, which will eat up another 10 minutes of air time during the January 6 ceremony, will be announced shortly.
