Up for best picture comedy alongside Vice are Yorgas Lanthimos' wild palace power struggle The Favourite, Peter Farrelly's divisive crowd-pleaser Green Book, the upcoming Disney sequel Mary Poppins Returns and the rom-com hit Crazy Rich Asians.
Paul Schrader's punishing drama "First Reformed" about a protestant minister played by Ethan Hawke got a handful of Independent Spirit Award nominations, was selected by the National Board of Review and AFI as one of the top films of the year and won big at the Gotham Awards. The HFPA loves to anoint new shows, but this year, Barry is the only new comedy that really blew the doors off. Kidding is a great Jim Carrey performance trapped in uneven execution, and The Kominsky Method is merely okay, and if it didn't star Alan Arkin and Michael Douglas we wouldn't even be talking about it.
Its most prestigious and highest rated drama, "This Is Us", was shut out of the 2019 Golden Globe nominations.
The 76th Golden Globes are set to air live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 6.
The original push centered on "The Dark Knight", Christopher Nolan's sequel to "Batman Begins", which failed to receive a best-picture nomination (although Heath Ledger was honored, posthumously, for his role as the Joker).
Yalitza Aparicio: "Roma" was ineligible for a best picture nomination but still earned nods in the best foreign language film, best director and best screenplay categories. The studio behind it, A24, had a hard year in general with the Globes, securing only one nomination for Elsie Fisher's breakout performance in the coming-of-age movie "Eighth Grade". She will also be the first Canadian to host the Globes. He was given the group's Cecil B DeMille achievement award in 1994. Those include "A Star Is Born", "Ralph Breaks the Internet", "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Boy Erased", "First Man", "Green Book", "The Old Man & the Gun", "Shoplifted", "A Private War" and "Can You Ever Forgive Me?". Last year's host was comedian and late-night star Seth Meyers. In a demonstration organized by the then-just-founded Time's Up, many women wore black on the red carpet.
Leslie Mann ("This Is 40"), and Christian Slater ("Mr. Robot") announced the nominations for the awards, which will air Sunday, Jan. 6 at 8 p.m. on NBC and will be hosted by Sandra Oh ("Grey's Anatomy") and Andy Samberg ("Brooklyn 99").
