‘A Star is Born’, ‘The Favourite’ win 5 noms each
LOS ANGELES, Dec 6, (RTRS): Golden Globes voters were in a political frame of mind on Thursday morning, as the awards organization handed “Vice”, a scathing look at former vice-president Dick Cheney’s career in government, a leading six nominations.
On the TV front, members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the group behind the Globes, embraced “The Assassination of Gianni Versace”, doling out four nominations to the FX limited series about the fashion designer’s brutal murder.
The awards group also swooned for “A Star is Born”, the backstage romance that’s been a box office and critical smash, as well as “The Favourite”, a comedy about royal intrigue, and “Green Book”, a Civil Rights drama. These three films all nabbed five nominations apiece.
Other television shows that had big mornings include newcomers “Barry”, “The Kominsky Method” and “Homecoming”, programs that are in their inaugural seasons. The three shows picked up three nominations apiece, as did
“Roma”, a family drama by Alfonso Cuaron that is being released by Netflix and is an Oscar front-runner, was deemed ineligible for the Globes’ best drama award because it is a foreign language production. It did pick up a nod for best foreign film along with nominations for its direction and screenplay.
There were some notable snubs. The Globes nominated “Black Panther”, the Marvel blockbuster that’s been hailed as a barrier-breaking comic book film, but ignored its director Ryan Coogler. Likewise, Sam Elliott, considered to be a leading supporting actor contender for his work as a wounded road manager in “A Star is Born”, was overlooked.
Unlike its other awards season counterpart the Oscars, the Globes hands out hardware to both movies and TV shows. It also focuses primarily on the actors, showrunners, and directors behind hit projects and essentially ignores cinematographers, editors, and other below-the-line categories.
On the eve of nominations, the Globes announced that “Killing Eve” star Sandra Oh and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Andy Samberg will co-host the ceremony, which is set to air Jan 6 on NBC.
The Globes are an essential stop on the awards season tour, but they are a spotty predictor of future Oscar success. Last year, the HFPA handed out the best drama prize to “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” and the best comedy statue to “Lady Bird”. Neither film won best picture at the Academy Awards. Instead, Oscar voters awarded their top prize to “The Shape of Water”.
