  • 76th Annual Golden Globe Nominations Announcement

The announcement that the Killing Eve star and Brooklyn Nine-Nine amusing man would host the evening was made Wednesday afternoon. Just past year it was up for drama series, supporting actress (Chrissy Metz), and actor (Sterling K. Brown, who won). "Both Golden Globe Award recipients have continually showcased their talents in film and television, and we can't wait see what their undeniable chemistry will bring to the Golden Globes stage". Literally nobody who saw A Star Is Born is surprised by that, but they might not know that despite being a first-time nominee in the category, Gaga's already a Golden Globes pro.

The stunner starred as Nakia in the 2018 hit Marvel film Black Panther, which earned over $1.3 billion around the world, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Then again, the HFPA also snubbed him for the first "Creed" as well (Stallone won that year for the film).

Granted, the results of awards balloting can be largely symbolic, and are seldom the best way to measure progress.

Awards season is officially off to the races with today's Golden Globe Awards nominations.

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

For animated films, The Incredibles was nominated for Best Motion Picture - Musical Or Comedy in 2005 but lost to Sideways.

Sacha Baron Cohen was also nominated for his series Who Is America? .

Several well-regarded movies failed to get any recognition from the HFPA, including Steve McQueen's Widows, Paul Schrader's First Reformed, and Chloe Zhao's The Rider. 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?". 2019 also brought major shenanigans occurring within TV categories, as we will discuss below.

In addition to being Marvel Studios' first Best Picture nomination, the third-highest-grossing movie of all time in the United States is the first super hero/genre film to be recognized in the Best Picture, Drama category. Only five women have ever been nominated for best director in the 76-year history of the Golden Globes - Barbra Streisand, Jane Campion, Sofia Coppola, Ava DuVernay, and Kathryn Bigelow. Barbra Streisand won for her 1984 film, Yentl.
