Golden Globe Nominees Are In!

Golden Globes

The Golden Globes are here! Yesterday the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominations for the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards which will be held on January 6th, 2019. With two of TV’s brightest stars — Brooklyn Nine Nine‘s Andy Samberg and Killing Eve lead Sandra Oh, the show is sure to be a treat, whether you’re a film or TV enthusiast. This will mark Oh and Samberg’s first time co-hosting together, though the pair did previously present an award together at the Emmy Awards in September.

As with every awards show nominations, there were plenty of expected accolades, surprises and snubs! Here’s what you need to know:

The Americans finally gets a Best Drama nomination
Acclaimed as one of the best dramas of the decade, The Americans, which ended this year, finally gets a nomination, after Keri Russell and Matthew Rys were both nominated for their lead performances last year.

Maniac fans will be disappointed
One of the biggest and most star-driven shows this year, Netflix’s Maniac was notably missing among nominations.

Atlanta snubbed
Atlanta’s Robbin Season, acclaimed by fans and critics, feels like the biggest snub this year in the Best Comedy category, with a nomination instead going to Netflix’s The Kominsky Method.

Lead Actor in a Drama category
Sterling K. Brown, last year’s winner for lead actor, was not nominated this year for This is Us, a show that was surprisingly completely ignored. However, new names join this list of nominations: Richard Madden for Bodyguard and Stephan James for Homecoming.

A new TV award
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association also announced the addition of a new award for TV – “Special Award for Achievement” to recognize the highest level of achievement in TV.

On the film side, Vice, starring Christian Bale as former Vice President Dick Cheney, scored six nominations, the most of any film, including best musical or comedy. If Beale Street Could Talk, director Barry Jenkins’ follow up to his Oscar-winning Moonlight, received 3 top nominations, including Best Drama. Fans can watch Vice on December 25th and Beale Street on December 14th, with just enough time before the awards show. The Favourite, Green Book, A Star is Born also received five nominations each.
