Golden Globes Carol Burnett Award

Carol Burnett is comedy royalty. Not only was she the first woman to host her own self-titled variety sketch show, The Carol Burnett Show, but she is one of the most influential people in the business of making people laugh. You’d be hard-pressed to find a comedy star today who wasn’t influenced by the stylings of Carol Burnett. Her work has stood the test of time, and last year there was an entire 50th anniversary special dedicated to her show. Now she’s being honored again, this year by the Golden Globes, with an award named after her…and she’ll be the first recipient.

2019 golden globe nominations

It’s the happiest time of the year again: when the takes keep coming and award nominations start flying. The 2019 Golden Globe nominations are here to kick awards season into gear.

Terry Crews, Danai Gurira, Leslie Mann, and Christian Slater join forces with Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Meher Tatna, producer Barry Adelman, and 16-year-old Isan Elba — Idris Elba’s daughter and this year’s Golden Globes Ambassador — to reveal the films, TV series, actors, and more that have been nominated for the 76th annual Golden Globes Awards. The HFPA also announced the creation of a new category to celebrate television in the era of “Peak TV” that will be the equivalent of film’s honorary Cecil B. Demille for TV. The live stream for the announcements began at 8:10 a.m. ET at the Golden Globes website.

On the film front, Adam McKay’s searing political dramedy Vice lead the pack with a whopping six nominations, while on the TV side, the FX series The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story earned four nominations. Coming up close behind Vice were A Star is Born, The Favourite, and Green Book, all of which nabbed five nods each. This year’s superhero dark Black Panther nabbed a Best Drama nod, though its director Ryan Coogler was notably snubbed for director. And Netflix’s favorite to earn a Best Picture nod at the Oscars was deemed ineligible for Globe’s Best Drama award because it is a foreign language production. However, the Mexican drama did earn a nod for Best Foreign Film along with nominations for direction and screenplay.

Will critical darlings like The Favourite or Roma reign supreme? Will Sharp Objects get its due? We’ll find out that and more at the Golden Globes ceremony, hosted by Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg, on NBC January 6, 2019.

The not-so-secret secret is that no one wants to host Hollywood’s award shows anymore. Comedians, talk show hosts and actors stand to gain nothing and lose a whole bunch by taking the gig. And yet, the show must go on. Yesterday, Kevin Hart stepped to the plate to hose the next Oscars ceremony. Now, we know who will host the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards: Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh.

Yes. That pair. For some reason.

2018 Golden Globes Video Highlights

Last night, the 75th Golden Globe Awards aired on NBC, and while the night wasn’t particularly exciting, it was full of a handful of big firsts for the awards presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

To kick off the night, Seth Meyers delivered a monologue targeting all of the missteps by Hollywood in the wake of sexual assault allegations against a wide variety of producers, actors and more. After that, there were a few awards handed out to actors of color for the first time ever. It’s kind of crazy that’s still happening, but at least Hollywood is finally embracing diversity more across the board.

We’ve got all those 2018 Golden Globes video highlights and more below. Read More »

Big Little Lies Golden Globes

All award shows are, to some degree, kind of silly. But the Golden Globes may be the silliest of the bunch, largely because of their bizarre categorizations of certain movies that seem to defy rational thought. (The fact that they have an open bar probably factors in as well.) Look at Ridley Scott’s The Martian being considered a comedy or musical, or this year’s Get Out falling into that same category.

But there’s some controversy brewing over Big Little Lies. While HBO’s show, which starred Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and Shailene Woodley, was one of the best things to air on television this year, there’s some contention over whether it belongs in the Limited Series category since it was recently renewed for a second season. And now HBO has released a statement defending the Big Little Lies Golden Globes categorization. Read their statement below, and see if you think they have a valid point.

Get Out Golden Globes

What began as an amusing piece of awards season news has blown into a much larger conversation. Jordan Peele‘s Get Out, one of the best and most financially successful movies of 2017, has been categorized as a comedy by Hollywood Foreign Press Association. That means that it will qualify in the “Best Comedy or Musical” category at next year’s Golden Globes, should it earn the nomination. That’s a weird fit for a horror movie, albeit a horror movie with plenty of comic relief.

Naturally, the internet had a lot of say about this, and now Peele himself has joined the conversation.

Get Out Golden Globes

Get Out, the smash hit horror satire that may very well be the best film released in 2017, could be a dark horse awards contender. After all, this is looking like a weak year for prestige pictures and a critically lauded, bold-as-hell vision could sneak in through the cracks. It’s possible!

And if it does sneak in through the cracks, the Golden Globes will treat it as a comedy.
