Lady Gaga, Kendrick Lamar, Donald Glover, And More Receive Golden Globe Nominations

Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg to co-host Globes

Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg to co-host Globes

While the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is known for its quirkier selections and categorizations, few saw the resounding success of Vice coming.

This was supposed to be Sam Elliott's year.

TNT received surprise nominations for the tiresome "The Alienist" - for limited series and for its star, the German actor Daniel Brühl.

Also left out, to gasps heard across social media, was Ethan Hawke's performance as an anguished pastor in First Reformed and Pawel Pawlikowski's Polish stunner Cold War, his follow-up to the Oscar-winning Ida. Belgium's "Girl", a Netflix film, was the surprise inclusion here.

Actor, Musical or Comedy: Sacha Baron Cohen, Who Is America; Jim Carrey Kidding; Michael Douglas, The Kominsky Method; Donald Glover, Atlanta; Bill Hader, Barry. A Star Is Born reeled in an impressive five nominations: Best Motion Picture - Drama, Best Director for Bradley Cooper, Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama for Lady Gaga, Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama for Cooper, and Best Original Song for Gaga and Cooper's "Shallow".

"What we tried to do was reflect the times that we are living in, which can be pretty absurd and pretty dramatic and tragic at the same time", McKay told Reuters on Thursday.

John Krasinski's celebrated mostly-silent horror sensation "A Quiet Place" got only one nomination, and a curious one at that, for Marco Beltrami's score of all things. The film also earned nominations for Best Picture (Musical or Comedy), Best Actor (Musical or Comedy) for Mortensen, and Best Supporting Actor (Ali).

There were plenty of pleasant and unexpected surprises, though, including The Good Place picking up two nominations after being shut out previous year, and Elsie Fisher being nominated for Eighth Grade.

Both Samberg and Oh have had a pretty fantastic year on television in 2018. She will also be the first Canadian to host the Globes.

Marvel has made a heroic push for the film in recent months by hiring Oscar strategist Cynthia Swartz to lead the campaign for awards season with the support of Marvel President Kevin Feige and a "significant awards season budget". Barbra Streisand won for her 1984 film, Yentl. Just a year ago it was up for drama series, supporting actress (Chrissy Metz), and actor (Sterling K. Brown, who won).

The 2019 Golden Globes will air Sunday, Jan. 6.
