No Sam Elliott and more Golden Globes nomination shockers

  • Actor Rachel Brosnahan plays Miriam ‘Midge’ Maisel in ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,’ now in its second season

Samberg and Oh, who earlier this year became the first woman of Asian descent to be nominated for a lead drama actress Emmy, were announced as hosts a day after African-American comedian Kevin Hart was named as a first-time host of the 2019 Academy Awards ceremony. The benefits of having a show that's now airing helped Showtime's "Escape at Dannemora" win nominations for best limited series and for its gutsy star Patricia Arquette.

Among television programs nominated for Golden Globes are new shows Bodyguard, available on Netflix, and Pose.

And to prove how perspicacious the Hollywood Foreign Press can be, it awarded Sacha Baron Cohen a stealth nod for best actor in comedy series for Showtime's "Who Is America?", presenting a threat to Douglas, Donald Glover ("Atlanta"), Jim Carrey ("Kidding") and this year's Emmy victor Bill Hader ("Barry"). "Black Panther" also nabbed a Best Original Song nomination for Kendrick Lamar's "All The Stars" and Best Original Score by Ludwig Göransson.

Adam McKay's Dick Cheney biopic Vice seized control of the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards with a leading six nominations, 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.

Because the Globes split their top film awards into two categories - drama, and musical or comedy - they historically also have the luxury of nominating movies that might otherwise be overlooked. Back in 2016, Deadpool earned a nomination in the Best Musical or Comedy category.

Qualcomm Unveils Snapdragon 855 Processor for 5G Phones
That said, a number of reports have said the OnePlus 7 will include the latest Snapdragon chipset but it won't be capable of 5G. Qualcomm is expected to reveal more details about the Snapdragon 855 and its features over the next few days from the summit.

Actress, Musical or Comedy: Kristen Bell, The Good Place; Candice Bergen, Murphy Brown; Alison Brie, GLOW; Rachel Brosnahan, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel; Debra Messing, Will & Grace.

The original push centered on "The Dark Knight", Christopher Nolan's sequel to "Batman Begins", which failed to receive a best-picture nomination (although Heath Ledger was honored, posthumously, for his role as the Joker). So were Better Call Saul, Black-ish, Maniac, and The Little Drummer Girl.

"Westworld": Thandie Newton picked up a nomination for best supporting actress but "Westworld", which was nominated for best drama in 2017, was otherwise shut out. Another name others may not have been expecting in the same breath?

The voters also gave a nomination for best actor in a comedy to Sacha Baron Cohen for his work in Showtime's "Who Is America?".
