The Best Things to Ever Happen at the Golden Globes

The Best Things to Ever Happen at the Golden Globes

Oh and co-host actor-comedian Andy Samberg interviewed one another for The Hollywood Reporter, discussing a range of topics, including show preparations, politics, and whether they will show some skin during the yearly gala.

Marvel Studios' superhero spectacle Black Panther, the top-grossing domestic film of 2018 ($700 million), nabbed a Best Motion Picture (Drama) nomination at the Golden Globes and a best ensemble nod from the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and it was named one of the American Film Institute's top 10 films of 2018. Leading the way is the hit movie: 'Crazy Rich Asians.' CGTN's May Lee reports.

The "Killing Eve" star, who made history past year as the first Asian woman nominated for the Emmy award for best actress in a drama series, has long spoken out about the importance of diversity and representation in Hollywood, and the paucity of roles for Asian actors.

If you've seen the film, you might remember a scene where Ally and Bradley Cooper's Jackson look out and see a rainbow-bright billboard of her face on the Sunset Strip.

Asked by Samberg if viewers can expect the pair to roast fellow Hollywood celebrities or "go hard into detailed politics stuff", Oh replied: "No, I don't think I could do that".

Chastain is a five-time Globes nominee who won for 2013 Zero Dark Thirty while Rockwell took home a prize previous year for his supporting role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

For networks struggling with declining ratings for their awards-show telecasts, popular films should provide a much-needed boost.

The political biopic Vice leads this year's Golden Globes shortlist with six nominations.

Samberg and Oh also defended award shows against the perennial criticisms that they can be vapid and shallow. "I think people are ready and could use a little smile". "I don't think it's shallow to [number one] have fun and [number two] be honestly celebratory", adding that she is "not interested in [mentioning President Trump] at all". "Just the fact that I'm fucking up there is crazy-pants in a great way".

"After Trump's election and #MeToo, people felt like they had to speak up", said Tim Gray, awards editor at Hollywood publication Variety.
