Share

While it is unclear if Samberg may be nominated in the Best Actor - Television Series Musical or Comedy category, many have speculated that Oh could be nominated for her work on Killing Eve. Leading all small-screen nominees was the FX anthology series The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story with four nods.

Benedict Cumberbatch was also shortlisted for playing Patrick Melrose in the Sky Atlantic drama of the same name based on Edward St Aubyn's novels, as was Thandie Newton, for Westworld.

Hollywood awards season kicked off on Thursday with the announcement of this year's Golden Globe nominations. Spike Lee was nominated for BlacKkKlansman, the second time as best director by the Globes, 30 years after being nominated for Do the Right Thing.

The 2019 Golden Globes are set to air live on Sunday (January 6) on NBC.

The annual honour presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association celebrates achievements in film and television productions across 25 categories.

Vice, a biopic about Dick Cheney starring Christian Bale, led the pack with six nominations, including best motion picture (musical or comedy), best actor for Bale, and best supporting actress for Amy Adams. (The HFPA has never recognized her for Fresh Off the Boat.) While Wu scored in best actress in a musical or comedy and the film was nominated for best musical or comedy, it feels a bit bittersweet, as Michelle Yeoh was left off the best supporting actress list.

Who will host the 2019 Golden Globes? .

Jim Carrey: No stranger to the Golden Globes - he's has won two - some may have been surprised to hear Carrey's name called in the best comedic actors category for his role in the Showtime series "Kidding".

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. Each of the shows also nabbed acting awards, leaving little room for returning nominees.

He was the 2015 Emmy Awards host, while Oh is a newcomer to handling emcee duties for a major ceremony.
