THE West Coun­try is set to make a wave at the Golden Globes after a slew of nom­i­na­tions for the Jan­uary awards.

Pres­ti­gious in their own right, the Golden Globes also of­fer a num­ber of Os­car-win­ner clues.

Former Bad­minton School pupil Rosamund Pike has been recog­nised with a nom­i­na­tion in the best fe­male ac­tor cat­e­gory for A Pri­vate War. She faces com­pe­ti­tion from Glenn Close and Lady Gaga, among oth­ers.

John C Reilly, who played Oliver Hardy in the Bris­tol-filmed Stan and Ol­lie, is nom­i­nated for best male per­former in a mu­si­cal or com­edy.

Mean­while, Hugh Grant’s turn as West Coun­try MP Jeremy Thorpe in A Very English Scan­dal has him short­listed in the best per­for­mance in a lim­ited se­ries cat­e­gory.

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga have both been nom­i­nated for Golden Globes for A Star Is Born. The mu­si­cal drama will go up against Black Pan­ther, Blackkklans­man, Bohemian Rhap­sody and If Beale Street Could Talk in the cat­e­gory of best pic­ture (drama).

A Star Is Born’s two leads, Cooper and Gaga, are nom­i­nated for best ac­tor in a mo­tion pic­ture and best ac­tress. Cooper is also nom­i­nated in the best di­rec­tor cat­e­gory, while Gaga is recog­nised in the best orig­i­nal song cat­e­gory.

In the mu­si­cal and com­edy best ac­tress cat­e­gory, Mary Pop­pins Re­turns’ Emily Blunt, The Favourite’s Olivia Col­man, Eight Grade’s Elsie Fisher, Tully’s Char­l­ize Theron and Crazy Rich Asians’ Con­stance Wu were all nom­i­nated.

Vice, the bio­graph­i­cal drama star­ring Chris­tian Bale, leads the way in nom­i­na­tions with six. A Star Is Born, The Favourite and Green Book all have five.

The nom­i­na­tions, pre­sented by Danai Gurira, Les­lie Mann and Chris­tian Slater, were an­nounced at a cer­e­mony at the Bev­erly Hilton in Los An­ge­les yes­ter­day.

The 2019 Golden Globes, which will be hosted by Killing Eve star San­dra Oh and Brook­lyn Nine-Nine co­me­dian Andy Sam­berg, will take place in Los An­ge­les on Jan­uary 6.
