GOLDEN SURPRISES & SNUBS: Noms kick off award season!

It was a awful day for network television. Not even previous victor Sterling K. Brown could score a nod.

The 2019 Golden Globes are set to air live on Sunday (January 6) on NBC.

Meher Tatna is President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Actress, TV Series, Musical or Comedy: Kristen Bell, "The Good Place"; Candice Bergen, "Murphy Brown"; Alison Brie, "GLOW"; Rachel Brosnahan, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel"; Debra Messing, "Will & Grace". It nearly makes that steep Amazon Prime membership worth it.

Drama Series: The Americans, Bodyguard, Homecoming, Killing Eve, Pose.

Earlier this year, Oh was nominated for an Emmy for lead actress in a drama series for the role, making her the first Asian woman to be nominated in that category.

Whether this year will return the Globes to their more lighthearted celebrations will rest partly with its unexpected pairing of Andy Samberg and Killing Eve star Sandra Oh, who on Thursday (Friday NZT) was nominated for best actress in a TV series drama. It is very likely that Roberts took the spot that belonged to Oh's co-star Jodie Comer, and I will try to get over it. Try.

That's just one of the snubs and surprises of this year's nominations, though.

This was among four nominations received by The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.

Lady Gaga was joined on the Golden Globes list by historical lesbian comedy The Favourite, which scored five nominations, including best musical or comedy, best screenplay and best actress for Olivia Colman.

HBO's wearying penchant for dark dramas only yielded nominations for the peculiar murder mystery "Sharp Objects" (series, Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson) and one nomination for "Westworld" (Emmy victor Thandie Newton). The veteran character actor delivered a powerful performance as Jackson Maine's brother in "A Star Is Born", which many still think will earn the 74-year-old his first ever Oscar nomination. Hulu snagged two for "The Handmaid's Tale", a show that has jumped the bonnet.

"Atlanta": In 2017, "Atlanta" won the Golden Globe for best comedy.

With the Golden Globes promo, Fandango is hoping to turn first-time FandangoNow users into repeat visitors. "And that he did it so unbelievably well and with so much impact ... seeing that potentially being recognized is what excites me the most".

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.
