Golden Globes kick off awards sea­son

The Standard (St. Catharines) - - Arts & Life -

Award show sea­son of­fi­cially kicked off Thurs­day morn­ing with the 2019 Golden Globe nom­i­na­tions and al­ready there are many ques­tions: Just how much will the crit­i­cally adored “A Star Is Born” clean up in the movie drama cat­e­gory?

Will films such as “Green Book” and “First Man” over­come dis­ap­point­ing box of­fice starts to be­come voter favourites?

On the TV side, will Hulu’s “The Hand­maid’s Tale” and Ama­zon’s “The Marvel­lous Mrs. Maisel” be re­peat win­ners?

Does any­one have a chance against HBO’s “Sharp Ob­jects” star Pa­tri­cia Clark­son in the sup­port­ing ac­tress race?

In ad­di­tion to pos­si­ble nods for movies that haven’t been re­leased to the gen­eral pub­lic yet (“Vice,” “Mary Pop­pins Re­turns”), look for some box of­fice smashes to get some at­ten­tion: Namely, “Black Pan­ther” and “Crazy Rich Asians.” And maybe, if the vot­ers are savvy, “Padding­ton 2.”

Andy Sam­berg (NBC’s “Brook­lyn Nine-Nine”) and San­dra Oh (BBC Amer­ica’s “Killing Eve”) will host the 76th An­nual Golden Globe Awards on Sun­day, Jan. 6, on NBC.
