Cheney biopic 'Vice' leads Golden Globe nominations with six

UE grad earns another Golden Globe nomination

The nominations for the 2019 Golden Globes Awards were announced Thursday morning, and while a few films with local ties came out well, others underperformed expectations.

Some of the notable snubs this year include Atlanta being shut out of Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy and Widows receiving zero nominations.

"Honorees [will be] selected based on outstanding accomplishments as well as their impact and influence that their television career has had on industry and audiences", Tatna continued, adding that the honor will be the HFPA's first special achievement award since the inauguration of the DeMille award in 1952.

Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg will share host duties at the Golden Globe Awards. If she takes home the trophy, she'll be the first singer to win Best Actress in a Drama, which is quite a feat.

Filmmaker Adam McKay picked up a pair of nominations for best director and screenplay.

Samberg has previously hosted the Primetime Emmy Awards in 2015 and the Film Independent Spirit Awards in 2013. Spike Lee was nominated for BlacKkKlansman, the second time as best director by the Globes, 30 years after being nominated for Do the Right Thing. The HFPA on Wednesday announced that Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh will host.

Who will host the 2019 Golden Globes? . Nor did Moonlight director Barry Jenkins get a nomination for his new movie, If Beale Street Could Talk.

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

"Black Panther" fans were understandably excited about the awards recognition given the film's major cultural impact.

Vice topped all contenders on Thursday (Friday NZ Time), in nominations announced at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, including best picture, comedy and best actor nominations for Christian Bale's almost unrecognisable performance as the former vice president. On the TV front, This Is Us was completely ignored.

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

This Globes category hot mess is nothing new, of course, but expect to hear plenty of mockery for Bohemian Rhapsody being included in a "Best" film category at all (when A Quiet Place was overlooked, as were critics favorites like First Reformed, Eighth Grade and Sorry to Bother You).
