• Golden Globe nominations are in; Andy Samberg, Sandra Oh to host 2019 awards ceremony

    It’s Golden Globes season and the nominations are out. Yesterday, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced that Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg are (confusedly) hosting the 2019 ceremony together on January 6.

    Samberg stars in the popular show Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Both the Saturday Night Live alum and the show won Golden Globes back in 2014, but have not been nominated since. Oh won her only Golden Globe for her roll on Grey’s Anatomy back in 2006, but the actress is nominated this year for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama for her role on Killing Eve. Oh will also be the first person of color to host the event.

    Aside from the comedy categories, comedian Melissa McCarthy is up for a dramatic best actress award for Can You Ever Forgive Me? and Adam McKay has been nominated for Best Screenplay – Motion Picture for Vice.

    Comedies that are absent from this list include critically-acclaimed films like Sorry to Bother You, Love, Simon, and The Death of Stalin. Comedy TV absentees include Bojack Horseman, Big Mouth, It’s Always Sunny, Veep, and blackish. No one comedy is poised to dominate this year, but shows like Barry and the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel should take home multiple awards. No one should feel bad, as it’s hard to respect a group that awards the Best Comedy Series award to Mozart in the Jungle.
