2019 Golden Globe Award Nominations: 'Vice' and 'The Favourite' Lead All as 'Black Panther' Makes History

The nominees for the 76th Golden Globe Awards were announced this morning in Hollywood, bringing the best in movies and television from 2018 to the forefront of awards sea-son. We already learned this week that Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg will host the awards ceremony when it’s televised on NBC on January 6, 2019. Oh will be the first Asian woman to host a major awards show.

Among the happy surprises are multiple nominations for Black Panther, including a nod for Best Picture – Drama. This is the first nomination in the category for Marvel Studios and their first best picture nod in general. The superhero block-buster also received nods for Best Original Score and Best Original Song, for Kendrick Lamar and SZA’s “All the Stars.” 

Also, Spike Lee received recognition as a director for the first time in almost 30 years (since his nod for Do the Right Thing), and his latest, BlacKkKlansman, is also up for the top drama prize, while its stars, John David Washington and Adam Driver are, respectively, contending in lead and supporting acting categories. 

In the comedy/musical section of the Golden Globes we find the most-nominated movie of this year’s Golden Globes: Vice. The Dick Cheney biopic’s six nods include Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actor for Christian Bale, Best Supporting Actress for Amy Adams (who also got nominat-ed for the HBO series Sharp Objects) and Best Supporting Actor for Sam Rockwell.

15-year-old Elsie Fisher received the pleasant personal shock of a Best Actress nomination for her performance in Eighth Grade (see her stunned social media reaction below). Meanwhile, in the supporting category, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, who play competitors for the favor of Queen Anne in the comedic period piece The Favourite, will now compete for the Golden Globe.

As with any year, a few snubs stood out for movie fans, including no nod for If Beale Street Could Talk for Best Original Score and the lack of favorites Cold War and Burning in the foreign film race. No songs from Mary Poppins Returns made the cut, but here’s an interesting fact: no song from the original Mary Poppins received a Golden Globe nomination either. 

The biggest surprises in the acting categories as far as who is missing are no nomination for Ethan Hawke for Best Actor – Drama for First Reformed or for Toni Collete for Best Actress – Drama for Hereditary. Both performers have been hot on the awards circuit, having won critics group accolades and other honors. Also, Ryan Gosling did not make the cut for Best Actor in First Man, and the film missed a Best Picture nod, too.

Fans of A Star is Born, which is the next highest-grossing movie in either Best Picture race, are also disappointed that Sam Elliott is without a nomination. The veteran actor has been in the conversation as a frontrunner for Best Supporting Ac-tor races throughout awards season. Perhaps he’ll have better luck with the Oscars in joining his co-stars Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.
