Golden Globes 2019 nomination: Vice lead pack, Widows snubbed – and other 6 points of discussion – The Independent


The Awards season has officially kicked off with the announcement of Golden Globe nominations – the complete list of which can be found here.

The films and TV shows competing for success at the annual awards ceremony were revealed today (December 6) by Terry Crews, Leslie Mann, Christian Slater and The walking dead the star Danai Gurira, who has gained consensus this year for her role in Black Panther.

The following are the main topics for discussion from the list of candidates, including the new entrant Vice, The success of the BBC hit series Bodyguard and the continuing lack of female directors.

The biographical film of Bale & # 39; s Cheney is the film to beat

About a month ago, nobody spoke Vice – now, it is the most nominated film of this year at the Golden Globes with a total of six. The award-winning voters clearly embraced Adam McKay Big Short follow-up, with Christian Bale "unrecognizable" as former vice president Dick Cheney, after the first screening that shook Hollywood a few weeks ago. Its location here – with the Noms for Bale, Amy Adams and Sam Rockwell – establishes the final competitor of the late race. Jacob Stolworthy

Black Panther he lands a nomination for the best film

Perhaps it is proof that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) is expanding its reach when it comes to the Golden Globes, or simply a testimony of how much the blockbuster of Ryan Coogler has resonated with the public, but Black Panther became the second film of superheroes ever to receive a nomination for the best film at the awards. The one after the rather bored candidacy for the last year Dead Pool in the Musical or Comedy category. Obviously, this did not translate into an Oscar nomination for Ryan Reynold's anti-hero, but it could be the frame behind Black Panther be enough to push in the middle of the conversation, press?

Olivia Colman gets a nomination for the best actress

All hail, Queen Olivia. Undoubtedly overlooked for its resolute turn Tyrannosaur in 2012, the British actor won a Globe five years later for his role in the spy TV movie The Night Manager. Now he makes his first cinematographic gesture with Yorgos Lanthimos The favourite, which reimagines Queen Anne's reign as an absurd farce with a lesbian touch. Right, too. Like Queen Anne, she is extraordinarily funny, never loses a beat as she moves wildly between stupid and childlike wonder. Much of the discussion will be about Lady Gaga, but in reality, this is the performance to love more. Patrick Smith

RomeThe odds are dented

Considering that he won the Gold Lion award at the Venice Film Festival – the same trophy won by The shape of water Last year – Alfonso Cuarón's masterpiece seemed destined to surpass his foreign language status to be nominated in the main category of cinema. Not much luck. While Cuarón received recognition as a director and screenwriter, RomeHe was listed in the Best Foreign Language category (alongside other twins shoplifters), With Best Film – Drama reserved for high-profile titles, including Bohemian Rhapsody is Black Panther (see above). While the Oscars are more likely to embrace Rome in his main film category, this has undoubtedly affected his chances of beating the likes of A star was born is Vice the first prize arrives in February.

The female directors were excluded (again)

You would think that HFPA would take notice after Natalie Portman beat a joke about the total lack of Golden Globe nominated directors for at least a year. Presenting the award for best director, he commented: "And here are all the male candidates". Anyone chosen to present this year's prize would do well to repeat Portman's statement: once again, no director has been nominated in the category, and no film directed by a woman has been nominated for the best film. For a season of awards that elsewhere seems very different, with awards in the film categories for the likes of Black Panther, If Beale Street could talk, BlackKklansman, is Crazy Asian peopleThis seems like a pointless embarrassment, especially when it's Lynne Ramsay's You've never really been here and Debra Granik Do not leave a trace they were both released this year.

The British are coming!

It has become a bit cliche to insist on this season of rewards – but this year I'm really on the march. Among the film's nominees, Rachel Weisz (The favourite), Claire Foy (First man), and Richard E Grant (Can you ever forgive me?) has earned the supporting actor nods, while Christian Bale (Vice), Emily Blunt (Mary Poppins Returns), Rosamund Pike (A private war) and Olivia Colman (The favourite) have been recognized for their main roles. As for TV, Richard Madden, who starred in Jed Mercurio's hit BBC drama Bodyguard, was nominated in the TV drama category, while Benedict Cumberbatch (Patrick Melrose), Hugh Grant (A very English scandal) and Thandie Newton (Westworld) have been nominated elsewhere. It was a pity not to see Kill EveJodie Comer was nominated alongside her brilliant co-star Sandra Oh, and Florence Pugh was overlooked for her extraordinary breakthrough in The Little Drummer Girlbut now we are just sorting.

Widows becomes the main slogan of this award season

A lot of people will write the list of nominations quests of the year, baffled not to find a single nomination for Steve McQueen Widows. It is an electric thriller, which has received a huge amount of criticism on its release, and presents one of the most formidable cast of this year. It is disappointing not only to see the film omitted, but also to see the Golden Globes sleeping on the ever-excellent Viola Davis, in what could be one of his best roles. Clarisse Loughrey

One step forward, Elsie Fisher

At 15 years Eighth grade the star Elsie Fisher is not the youngest actress in the 74-year history of the Golden Globe – which goes to Beasts of the wild South star Quvenzhané Wallis, who was 9 when she was nominated. If he wins, though, he will be the youngest winner of all time, overtaking Sons of a lesser GodMarlee Matlin, who was 21 when she won the award in 1987. Fisher is as raw and magnetic as a high school student in the acclaimed directorial debut of Bo Burnham, having been chosen after Burnham saw her YouTube. Alexandra Pollard
