‘Vice’ leads Golden Globes noms

‘A Star is Born’, ‘The Favourite’ win 5 noms each

Arab Times - - NEWS/FEATURES -

LOS AN­GE­LES, Dec 6, (RTRS): Golden Globes vot­ers were in a po­lit­i­cal frame of mind on Thurs­day morn­ing, as the awards or­ga­ni­za­tion handed “Vice”, a scathing look at for­mer vice-pres­i­dent Dick Cheney’s ca­reer in gov­ern­ment, a lead­ing six nom­i­na­tions.

On the TV front, mem­bers of the Hol­ly­wood For­eign Press As­so­ci­a­tion, the group be­hind the Globes, em­braced “The As­sas­si­na­tion of Gianni Ver­sace”, dol­ing out four nom­i­na­tions to the FX lim­ited series about the fash­ion de­signer’s bru­tal mur­der.

The awards group also swooned for “A Star is Born”, the back­stage ro­mance that’s been a box of­fice and crit­i­cal smash, as well as “The Favourite”, a com­edy about royal in­trigue, and “Green Book”, a Civil Rights drama. Th­ese three films all nabbed five nom­i­na­tions apiece.

Other tele­vi­sion shows that had big morn­ings in­clude new­com­ers “Barry”, “The Komin­sky Method” and “Home­com­ing”, pro­grams that are in their in­au­gu­ral sea­sons. The three shows picked up three nom­i­na­tions apiece, as did

“Roma”, a fam­ily drama by Al­fonso Cuaron that is be­ing re­leased by Net­flix and is an Os­car front-run­ner, was deemed in­el­i­gi­ble for the Globes’ best drama award be­cause it is a for­eign lan­guage pro­duc­tion. It did pick up a nod for best for­eign film along with nom­i­na­tions for its di­rec­tion and screen­play.

There were some no­table snubs. The Globes nom­i­nated “Black Pan­ther”, the Mar­vel block­buster that’s been hailed as a bar­rier-break­ing comic book film, but ig­nored its di­rec­tor Ryan Coogler. Like­wise, Sam El­liott, con­sid­ered to be a lead­ing sup­port­ing ac­tor con­tender for his work as a wounded road man­ager in “A Star is Born”, was over­looked.

Awards

Un­like its other awards sea­son coun­ter­part the Os­cars, the Globes hands out hard­ware to both movies and TV shows. It also fo­cuses pri­mar­ily on the ac­tors, showrun­ners, and di­rec­tors be­hind hit projects and es­sen­tially ig­nores cine­matog­ra­phers, ed­i­tors, and other be­low-the-line cat­e­gories.

On the eve of nom­i­na­tions, the Globes an­nounced that “Killing Eve” star San­dra Oh and “Brook­lyn NineNine” star Andy Sam­berg will co-host the cer­e­mony, which is set to air Jan 6 on NBC.

The Globes are an es­sen­tial stop on the awards sea­son tour, but they are a spotty pre­dic­tor of fu­ture Os­car suc­cess. Last year, the HFPA handed out the best drama prize to “Three Bill­boards Out­side Ebbing, Mis­souri” and the best com­edy statue to “Lady Bird”. Nei­ther film won best pic­ture at the Acad­emy Awards. In­stead, Os­car vot­ers awarded their top prize to “The Shape of Wa­ter”.
