Golden Globes 2019: Movies about politics, race, music dominate nomination list

LOS ANGELES: Movies about race, politics and music dominated nominations for the Golden Globe awards on Thursday, setting the stage for a lively Hollywood awards season leading up to the Oscars in February.

Dark comedy Vice, a scathing look at the rise to power of former US Vice President Dick Cheney, led all comers with six nods. It was followed by the Lady Gaga musical remake of A Star is Born, British historical comedy The Favourite and road trip movie through the 1960s segregated America Green Book with five nods apiece.

Several expected contenders, including female-led heist thriller Widows, were left out in the cold, while moon landing movie First Man was snubbed in the best drama race and had to settle for just two nominations.

Vice director Adam McKay described his film, which will be released on December 25, as “an amazing portrayal of power.”

Vice also won nods for actors Christian Bale as Dick Cheney, Amy Adams as Lynne Cheney, and Sam Rockwell as former US President George W Bush. The film is distributed by independent Annapurna Pictures, which led studios with 10 nominations overall.

The Golden Globes, chosen by the small Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), will be handed out at in Beverly Hills on Jan 6 in the season’s first major show business awards ceremony.

The movie line-up includes two films about racial injustice – If Beale Street Could Talk, director Barry Jenkins’ follow-up to his 2017 Oscar best picture Moonlight, and director Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman. Walt Disney Co black empowerment superhero movie Black Panther also got the best drama nomination.

Crazy Rich Asians, the first big Hollywood movie in 25 years with an all-Asian cast, further diversified the Globes contenders with nods for best comedy and best actress for Constance Wu.

Singing a new song

Music featured strongly with Bohemian Rhapsody, starring Rami Malek as late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. Malek gave a “heartfelt and humbled thank you to the man this is for and because of, Freddie.”

A Star is Born, the Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper remake of the show business romance, solidified its status as a major contender for Oscars, while Mary Poppins Returns, a sequel to Disney’s beloved 1964 film, won nominations for stars Emily Blunt and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron’s much-admired semi-autobiographical black-and-white film Roma, for streaming service Netflix, was nominated in the foreign language category.

Briton Olivia Colman won the best actress nod for her turn as a petulant Queen Anne in the Fox Searchlight historical romp The Favourite, along with supporting stars Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz.

In television, limited FX series The Assassination of Gianni Versace about the murder of the Italian fashion designer was ahead with four nods and helped the FX network take a leading 10 nominations.

But favourites like The Handmaid’s Tale and This is Us were shut out of the biggest races in favour of newcomers including podcast-adaptation Homecoming, starring Julia Roberts, and comedies The Kominsky Method and Kidding.
