Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh to Host the 2019 Golden Globes

  • Golden Globes nominations preview 5 things to watch for including ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ vs. ‘Roma

The Ryan Coogler-directed film has become the first superhero movie to be nominated for best picture in the drama category at the Golden Globes.

Queen film Bohemian Rhapsody, which tracks the rise of queer music legend Freddie Mercury, has been nominated for best drama film, as well as best actor for Rami Malek. Some say the actor is unrecognizable in the film.

Additionally, only five women have ever earned a nomination.

Its most prestigious and highest rated drama, "This Is Us", was shut out of the 2019 Golden Globe nominations. Cooper is also up for best director.

Gay conversion film Boy Erased missed out on a nomination for best drama, but has been recognised for best original song in a film for "Revelation". Sterling K. Brown, last year's victor for "This Is Us", was left out, and the brilliant, if hard, "Patrick Melrose" on Showtime failed to be nominated for best limited series.


Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz will also reignite their on-screen rivalry in the best supporting actress category, where both stars are nominated. The Oscars, as they are called, will be presented on February 24 in Los Angeles. Nor did Moonlight director Barry Jenkins get a nomination for his new movie, If Beale Street Could Talk. There were a few locks, like Mexico's "Roma", from director Alfonso Cuaron, Lebanon's "Capernaum" and even Japan's "Shoplifters". The film will compete with Lebanese movie Capernaum, Belgian movie Girl, Never Look Away from Germany and the Japanese drama Shoplifters.

Also good: A nomination for Stephan James, who is at the heart of "Homecoming" as Julia Roberts's patient.

Marvel has made a heroic push for the film in recent months by hiring Oscar strategist Cynthia Swartz to lead the campaign for awards season with the support of Marvel President Kevin Feige and a "significant awards season budget". Bodyguard is a suspense show about a man appointed to protect a British government minister. This year, the voters included nominations for "Pose", the FX drama about the 1980s ballroom scene in NY, and I'm delighted. The show has been praised for its use of a groundbreaking number of transgender actors. The nominations will be livestreamed on the Globes' official Facebook page and the group's website.

But it was far from a runaway win for Vice since the press association typically spread its awards around. Caty Weaver adapted it for Learning English.
