Golden Globe 2019 Nominations and Snubs From Atlanta to Roma
Oh buddy, are you ready for some weirdness? The always-bizarre Golden Globe nominations have been announced, and it’s another crazy one. So let’s get right into it.
First, for anyone who has seen Alfonso Cuarón’s stunning Roma and is outraged that it didn’t get a nomination for Best Picture, let me just point out one thing: The film wasn’t eligible to be nominated for best picture because it is a contender for best foreign-language film, per Hollywood Foreign Press Association rules. Yes, it’s ridiculous, but since when is this award show not annoying as hell? Credit where it’s due, seeing the HFPA nominate Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman, and If Beale Street Could Talk is pretty awesome in itself—making for one of the most diverse list of nominees in that category in years.
Vice leads the film nominees with six, followed by The Favourite, Green Book and A Star Is Born with five each. Now, A Star Is Born has been the expected frontrunner throughout award season this Fall, but Green Book comes as somewhat of a surprise, given pushback the film has received since its release. It’s surprising in the Best Picture / Director categories to see Steve McQueen’s Widows completely ignored. Meanwhile when we’re talking about Director, no Ryan Coogler for Black Panther? Also there are no female directors nominated once again here. Remember Natalie Portman’s jab when announcing the category last year: “And now, here are the all male nominees.” Well it’s happened again, with no love for the likes of Josie Rourke (Mary Queen of Scots) or Lynne Ramsay (You Were Never Really Here).
I know this isn’t the most competitive category but I’m outraged that Paddington 2 didn’t get a nomination for Best Animated Film (although with Ralph Breaks the Internet, Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse, and Isle of Dogs this is another tough group). Another welcome name on this list is the young Elsie Fisher, who was nominated for Best Actress in the amazing coming of age story Eighth Grade, which was unfortunately nowhere to be found in either Best Picture category. While I’m thrilled to see Kendrick Lamar and SZA nominated for Best Original Song, I’m really bummed to see Thom Yorke snubbed for his brilliant Suspiria soundtrack.
On the TV side, the biggest snub of the year is of Atlanta, Donald Glover’s subversive comedy on FX. While Glover himself was nominated for Best Actor, the show itself was snubbed in the Best Comedy category in favor of Kidding and The Kominsky Method. In the TV supporting roles, Atlanta stars Brian Tyree Henry, Lakeith Stanfield, and Zazie Beetz—all of whom gave exceptional performances with more screen time this season—are not nominated.
As expected, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story and Sharp Objects both got a lot of love in the consistently competitive limited series category. After getting robbed at the Emmys for Best Actress, Sandra Oh (who’s also a host of the Globes this year!) is nominated for Killing Eve. Will she take home this trophy for playing the relatable and determined MI5 spy? It’s a hard category up against the Golden Globes favorite Elisabeth Moss.
The 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards will air live on NBC on Sunday, Jan. 6 from 5-8 p.m. PT. Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg will be the hosts.
