Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg to host 2019 Golden Globes

First up, Amazon was recognized for three distinct series, each with its own tone and spirit. This year, she became the first actress of Asian ethnicity to receive an Emmy nomination for drama series lead, for Killing Eve. Each of the shows also nabbed acting awards, leaving little room for returning nominees.

The duo won praise for their chemistry when they were presenting at the Emmy Awards for television in September. It nearly - but not entirely - makes up for the fact that the Emmys ignored the show.

Actor, TV Series-Drama: Jason Bateman, "Ozark"; Stephan James, "Homecoming"; Richard Madden, "Bodyguard"; Billy Porter, "Pose"; Matthew Rhys, "The Americans".

"We're excited to welcome Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg as co-hosts of Hollywood's Party of the Year", HFPA president Meher Tatna said in a statement.

Vice topped all contenders on Thursday (Friday NZ Time), in nominations announced at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, including best picture, comedy and best actor nominations for Christian Bale's almost unrecognisable performance as the former vice president.

Actor, Supporting Role, Series, Limited Series or Movie Made for Television: Alan Arkin, "The Kominsky Method"; Kieran Culkin, "Succession"; Edgar Ramirez, "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story"; Ben Whishaw, "A Very English Scandal"; Henry Winkler, "Barry". That's just one of the snubs and surprises of this year's nominations, though.

FX continued its streak as the premium basic cable channel with expected nominations for the "Versace" limited series and its stars, Emmy victor Darren Criss, Penelope Cruz and Edgar Ramirez.

Beyond its best comedy film nod, "Vice" - a searing look at George W. Bush's powerful vice president - picked up a trio of acting nominations for a almost unrecognisable Bale, co-star Amy Adams as Cheney's wife Lynne and Sam Rockwell as Bush.

HBO's wearying penchant for dark dramas only yielded nominations for the peculiar murder mystery "Sharp Objects" (series, Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson) and one nomination for "Westworld" (Emmy victor Thandie Newton). Hulu snagged two for "The Handmaid's Tale", a show that has jumped the bonnet. Golden Globes-nominated movies now available on FandangoNow are "Black Panther", "BlacKkKlansman", "Crazy Rich Asians", "Isle of Dogs", "Incredibles 2", "Eighth Grade" (for actress Elsie Fisher), "Tully" (for actress Charlize Theron) and "A Quiet Place" (for music score).

It's also only the second superhero film in history to receive a Best Picture nomination at the Golden Globes, and the first ever for Best Drama. Yet for an industry still grappling with issues pertaining to inclusion, and an award-show apparatus wrestling with a movie business increasingly reliant on superheroes and science fiction, an Oscar nod to "Black Panther" would, indeed, represent a noteworthy gesture, in more ways than one, toward Hollywood's new realities.

The 76th Golden Globes are set to air live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 6. It's a lot, I know, there is SO much television.

The Golden Globe Awards, like many shows of its kind, is caught up in a downward spiral of viewer indifference.
