Lady Gaga Is Already a Golden Globes Winner

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association nominated the political comedy Vice for more Golden Globes on Thursday than any other film.

In addition to announcing which films and television shows will vie for its year-end awards, the HFPA has introduced a new lifetime achievement accolade aimed at recognizing "the highest level of achievement in the medium" of television, per HFPA president Meher Tatna during the nominations announcement.

While some critics have taken issue with Green Book for relying on outdated racial tropes, its once flagging Oscar campaign has lately received a boost with both better ticket sales and accruing awards love.

Queen film Bohemian Rhapsody, which tracks the rise of queer music legend Freddie Mercury, has been nominated for best drama film, as well as best actor for Rami Malek. As the first major award show following the Harvey Weinstein revelations and subsequent launch of the #MeToo movement, the usually more frivolous ceremony had an atypical edge of seriousness.

This year's Golden Globe nominations included a few surprises - and a few snubs. They were announced as hosts to the January 6 (January 7 NZT) ceremony, to be broadcast live on USA network NBC.

Michael B. Jordan had a banner year, both critically and at the box office, with his tour de force supporting performance in "Black Panther", and then reprising his role as Adonis Creed in "Creed II". Nor did Moonlight director Barry Jenkins get a nomination for his new movie, If Beale Street Could Talk.




The voters also gave a nomination for best actor in a comedy to Sacha Baron Cohen for his work in Showtime's "Who Is America?".

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

Bob Odenkirk: For the first time in four years, the "Better Call Saul" actor was not nominated in the best dramatic actor category.

"We know that if we want to live in a world that looks more like Wakanda, the first step is you invest in women and girls", Gurira said at The Hollywood Reporter's 2018 Women in Entertainment event.

Samberg and Oh, who earlier this year became the first woman of Asian descent to be nominated for a lead drama actress Emmy, were announced as hosts a day after African-American comedian Kevin Hart was named as a first-time host of the 2019 Academy Awards ceremony. Streisand is the only one to win, for Yentl in 1984.
