IN THE SPOT­LIGHT

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

On the tele­vi­sion side, awards were even more widely dis­persed among the likes of the spy thriller “The Amer­i­cans,” Bill Hader’s hit-man com­edy “Barry,” the Ju­lia Roberts-led con­spir­acy thriller “Home­com­ing,” Chuck Lorre’s act­ing coach se­ries “The Komin­sky Method” and last year’s champ, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” Lead­ing all small-screen nom­i­nees with four nods was “The As­sas­si­na­tion of Gianni Ver­sace: Amer­i­can Crime Story,” the FX an­thol­ogy se­ries about the Ital­ian fash­ion de­signer’s mur­der.

For the first time, FX bested heavy­weights like HBO, Net­flix and Ama­zon with a net­work-best 10 nods, even though the ex­alted sec­ond sea­son of its “At­lanta” re­ceived only a sin­gle nod for Don­ald Glover’s act­ing.

Cu­ri­ously, the HFPA doesn’t con­sider for­eign-lan­guage films for best film, so Al­fonso Cuaron’s ac­claimed fam­ily drama “Roma” was left out of the Globes’ top cat­e­gory. “Roma,” which is ex­pected to earn Net­flix its first best pic­ture nom­i­na­tion at the Os­cars, was still nom­i­nated for best screen­play, best di­rec­tor and best for­eign lan­guage film.

For the first time, the Globes nom­i­nated three films di­rected by African Amer­i­can film­mak­ers for best pic­ture, drama: Ryan Coogler’s su­per­hero sen­sa­tion “Black Pan­ther,” Spike Lee’s ur­gent white na­tion­al­ist drama “BlacK kKlans­man” and Barry Jenk­ins’ lyri­cal James Bald­win adap­tion “If Beale Street Could Talk.” The other nom­i­nees are “A Star Is Born” and “Bohemian Rhap­sody,” the Fred­die Mer­cury biopic.
