The movement to get Sandra Oh on television as much as possible is coming along nicely. The actress was just announced as the co-host of the 2019 Golden Globes, along with Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Andy Samberg, but the Killing Eve lead was also nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series (Drama) for her role in the cult BBC series, raising the possibility that Oh will both host and win on the same night. Killing Eve was also nominated for Best Television Series (Drama).
Unsurprisingly, A Star Is Born came out fighting with five nominations, including Best Motion Picture—Drama nomination; Bradley Cooper earned a Best Director (Motion Picture) and Best Actor. Lady Gaga received a nomination for Best Actress (Drama), and the song “Shallow” is up for Best Original Song.
This year’s victors in Best Actress (Comedy) and Best TV Series (Comedy), Rachel Brosnahan and The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, are up again for both awards in 2019. The show’s Alex Borstein is nominated for Best Supporting Actress (Television).
The Americans also took away a bunch of nominations for its final season: Keri Russell earned a Best Actress (Drama) nod, her husband and co-star Matthew Rhys scored a Best Actor (Drama) nomination, and the show overall is up for Best Television Series (Drama).
Although there was some kerfuffle over the Oscars’ new “Popular Film” category beginning in the year of Black Panther, the Marvel behemoth scored nominations in the Globes’ traditional categories of Best Motion Picture (Drama), Best Original Score, and Best Original Song, for “All the Stars.”
Amy Adams pulled a twofer, being nominated for both Sharp Objects (TV Limited Series or Motion Picture) and Best Supporting Actress (Motion Picture) for Vice. Perennial nominee Caitriona Balfe is up for Best Actress in a Television Series (Drama) again for Outlander, while people will be clamoring to see Mary Poppins Returns—which is nominated for several awards (Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Motion Picture, Best Score) but not yet out in theaters.
Other films to try to see before the year is out are Crazy Rich Asians, nominated for Best Motion Picture (Comedy) and Best Actress Constance Wu; Roma (Best Motion Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay); If Beale Street Could Talk (Best Motion Picture, Best Supporting Actress, Best Screenplay); and The Favourite (Best Motion Picture, Best Actress, Best Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actress—both Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz were nominated).
