Female Directors Left Out of 2019 Golden Globe Nominations

Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg to co-host Globes Andy Samberg & Sandra Oh Are Hosting The Golden Globes, The Good Award Show

Curiously, the Hollywood Foreign Press doesn't consider foreign-language films eligible for best film, so Alfonso Cuaron's Netflix drama "Roma" will be left out of the Globes' top category.

Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz will also reignite their on-screen rivalry in the best supporting actress category, where both stars are nominated.

"Honorees [will be] selected based on outstanding accomplishments as well as their impact and influence that their television career has had on industry and audiences", Tatna continued, adding that the honor will be the HFPA's first special achievement award since the inauguration of the DeMille award in 1952.

It's a huge day for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is finally getting some overdue recognition during Awards Season.

Adam McKay's Dick Cheney biopic Vice swooped in to lead nominations for the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards, 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.

Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg to co-host Globes

A whole awards ceremony of that? Rhode Island native and onetime MA resident Peter Farrelly garnered a Best Director nomination, as well as a Best Screenplay nod, which he shared with co-writers Nick Vallelonga and Peabody native Brian Currie. That's just one of the snubs and surprises of this year's nominations, though. A24, the studio behind First Reformed, seemed to be having a bit of an off year at the Globes, as Eighth Grade also missing out on a Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy nomination, while Hereditary's Toni Collette was similarly snubbed from best actress in a drama.

The movie line-up includes several other films about racial injustice - "If Beale Street Could Talk" from Barry Jenkins and director Spike Lee's "BlacKkKlansman" - along with black empowerment superhero movie "Black Panther", which gave Walt Disney Co DIS.N the second-highest-grossing movie worldwide of 2018 with a $1.3 billion box office.

Even though she's been there and done that with the Globes, she's still positioned to make history if she wins again. When a "Sam" was announced in the best supporting actor nominations, I truly assumed it was Elliott and only later realized it was Sam Rockwell, for playing George W. Bush in Vice.

Lucas Hedges, who said earlier this year that he was "not totally straight, but also not gay and not necessarily bisexual", was also nominated for best actor in a drama film for his portrayal of main character Jared Eamons. So were Better Call Saul, Black-ish, Maniac, and The Little Drummer Girl. Several women were on people's lists of best director contenders, including Zhao, Lynne Ramsay (who directed You Were Never Really Here), Can You Ever Forgive Me?'s Marielle Heller, and Josie Rourke for Mary, Queen of Scots. Barbra Streisand won for her 1984 film, Yentl.
