Britons get starring role in Golden Globes nominations

And like every year, there is a slew of snubs and surprises when the Golden Globe Awards announced nominations in TV and film excellence. He is a Golden Globe victor for "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and the series, also a Golden Globe recipient for best comedy-musical, launches on NBC Jan. 10, four days after the Globes.

The Golden Globes and other awards - including those from critics groups and industry guilds - are closely watched as possible bellwethers for the Oscars, still considered the grand prize, even in this age of awards saturation and declining ratings. The film, however, received just one Golden Globe nomination - for best score. Rhode Island native and onetime MA resident Peter Farrelly garnered a Best Director nomination, as well as a Best Screenplay nod, which he shared with co-writers Nick Vallelonga and Peabody native Brian Currie. Superhero movies generally get the shaft when it comes to these ceremonies (unless we're talking about the People's Choice or MTV Movie Awards, which aren't taken seriously at all, hence the Best Kiss category). There were plenty of pleasant and unexpected surprises, though, including The Good Place picking up two nominations after being shut out previous year, and Elsie Fisher being nominated for Eighth Grade.

Mr Powell's comments appear to implicitly reject arguments from President Trump that past interest rate rises have been a mistake. Some members noted the further appreciation of the USA greenback could also pose as a downside risk to the economy.

In the top category of Best Picture - Drama, the nominees this year are Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman, Bohemian Rhapsody, If Beale Street Could Talk, and A Star Is Born. Though Elisabeth Moss picked up a nomination in the latter category this time around, the show was shut out of the best drama category.

Vice topped all contenders on Thursday (Friday NZ Time), in nominations announced at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, including best picture, comedy and best actor nominations for Christian Bale's almost unrecognisable performance as the former vice president.

Damien Chazelle's Neil Armstrong drama "First Man" remains a big awards season question mark, and the Golden Globes didn't really help to shine a light on which way it might go. On the TV front, This Is Us was completely ignored. A24, the studio behind First Reformed, seemed to be having a bit of an off year at the Globes, as Eighth Grade also missing out on a Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy nomination, while Hereditary's Toni Collette was similarly snubbed from best actress in a drama. Barbra Streisand won for her 1984 film, Yentl.
