TV & FILM

This year's Golden Globe nominations are in and there's no shortage of love for a good number of films across the spectrum. Films that many of us haven't even seen yet—If Beale Street Could Talk, Vice, Roma, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse—got their fair share of the awards love, as well as some that didn't get enough attention at the box office—First Man and BlacKkKlansman—and some that are getting way more attention than they deserve—Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody.
Amy Adams is nominated in two categories, which is great because we all love Amy Adams. And it's the Golden Globes so they're not letting her go home empty handed. It's a group of like 40 people that pick the winners, they know the score. She'll win for one of those. Or maybe she'll win them both, who can tell, it'll be such a magical evening. I am thrilled to see both Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz nominated for The Favourite. They are an absolute delight in the flick, as is the impeccable Olivia Colman, who is most assuredly on her way to victory.
It's strange to see Roma get a Best Director nom for Alfonso Cuaron, but not a Best Picture nom. They really love Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman, as well they should, it's one of the best movies of 2018. But all that love for Green Book and Viggo Mortensen's ridiculous Italian-American stereotype is baffling to me. They nominated a Farrelly Brother for Best Director. Come on, Hollywood Foreign Press!
It was announced just last night that Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh will take the thankless job of hosting this year's Golden Globes, which is conventionally thought of as the first major precursor to the Oscars. In fact, the show will air on January 6, more than two weeks before Oscar nominations are even announced on January 22, so there's no way its outcome won't affect the nomination process.
Check out the list of nominees I typed out while watching this below. I didn't get any of the TV nominees but Amy Adams was nominated for Sharp Objects as well.
Best Motion Picture Musical/Comedy
Crazy Rich Asians
Mary Poppins Returns
