'Vice' Tops Golden Globe Awards Nominations

'Vice' Tops Golden Globe Awards Nominations

The news arrives a day after the Oscars announced Kevin Hart to host next year's ceremony and a day before this year's Golden Globe nominations are set to be unveiled. The trendy "Twilight Zone"-inspired drama "Homecoming" scored 3 nominations, for best drama series and for lead actors Julia Roberts (who missed a drama film actress nod for "Ben Is Back") and up-and-comer Stephan James as therapist and patient in a spooky Florida rehab facility". Well, they did nominate Donald Glover for Best Actor in a comedy series, so they do remember that Atlanta exists.

She will face off against The Handmaid's Tale's Elisabeth Moss, whose co-star in the hit Hulu series, Yvonne Strahovski, is nominated for best supporting actress.

Adam McKay's Dick Cheney biopic Vice seized control of the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards with a leading six nominations, narrowly edging Bradley Cooper's tear-jerking revival A Star Is Born, the interracial road-trip drama Green Book and the period romp The Favourite.

"We're excited to welcome Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg as co-hosts of Hollywood's Party of the Year", said Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Meher Tatna in a statement.

The performers in the series were also recognised, with Hugh Grant being rewarded for his role as the former Liberal leader Jeremy Thorpe in A Very English Scandal.

‘BIG leap forward,’ says Donald Trump on US-China relations
Later that month, China reduced the tariff rate to 15 percent on all imported vehicles while raising it for US cars to 40 percent. The government also has promised to ease limits on foreign ownership of automakers, insurance ventures and other companies.

That's just one of the snubs and surprises of this year's nominations, though.

In television, limited FX FOXA.O series "The Assassination of Gianni Versace" won the most nominations in the television category with four nods and helped the FX network take a leading 10 nominations.

"Westworld": Thandie Newton picked up a nomination for best supporting actress but "Westworld", which was nominated for best drama in 2017, was otherwise shut out.

This will mark Oh and Samberg's first time co-hosting together. She didn't win but made a big splash by bringing her parents to the awards 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 veteran character actor delivered a powerful performance as Jackson Maine's brother in "A Star Is Born", which many still think will earn the 74-year-old his first ever Oscar nomination. Its own Golden Age has passed and now seems quaintly irrelevant. We will know on January 7, the morning after.
