Britons get starring role in Golden Globes nominations

Britons get starring role in Golden Globes nominations

Sandra Oh, left, and Andy Samberg have been announced as co-hosts for the Golden Globes in 2019.

Barrier-smashing Pose, which features the most transgender actors of any TV show in recent history, received two nominations-one for best TV drama series, and one for Billy Porter for best actor.

Oh co-executive produces "Killing Eve" and stars as Eve Polastri, an MI5 officer who hunts down and becomes entangled with a cold-blooded female assassin, earning a lead actress in a drama series nomination this year.

Oh is best known for her former role in the long-running television hospital drama Grey's Anatomy, and is now starring in BBC America's acclaimed murder-mystery Killing Eve.

While the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, a collection of 88 mostly lesser-known freelance film journalists, is known for its quirkier selections and categorizations ("Get Out" previous year slotted in as a comedy), few saw the resounding success of "Vice" coming.

Darren Criss and Hugh Grant have both been nominated for their roles as gay men in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story and A Very English Scandal respectively.

While some critics have taken issue with Green Book for relying on outdated racial tropes, its once flagging Oscar campaign has lately received a boost with both better ticket sales and accruing awards love. Though Elisabeth Moss picked up a nomination in the latter category this time around, the show was shut out of the best drama category.

The Golden Globes had aired without a host for decades until NBC in 2010 tapped Ricky Gervais for the job.

Some news: The Hollywood Foreign Press has acknowledged that we are in a Golden Age of television and that they want to catch up, bestowing their highest honor, the Cecil B. DeMille award, established in 1952 and given to movie stars who have kissed the ring or given Rolexes to the members, on a worthy contributor to the TV medium. For the first time, FX bested heavyweights like HBO, Netflix and Amazon with a network-best 10 nods, even though its Atlanta was overlooked entirely. The news comes just a little over a month before the actual award show. "And that he did it so unbelievably well and with so much impact ... seeing that potentially being recognized is what excites me the most". The gold standard of awards shows - the Oscars - has lost 20 million viewers in the past four years.
