Golden Globes' 2019 Hosts Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg Elicit Excitement

For some actors, including the casts of "Vice" and "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story", Thursday morning's Golden Globe nominations announcement was cause for celebration.

"The Handmaid's Tale": At the 2018 Golden Globes, Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale" won for best dramatic series and best actress in a drama. The new deal will extend the association through 2026, beginning with next year's 76th annual awards.

And like every year, there is a slew of snubs and surprises when the Golden Globe Awards announced nominations in TV and film excellence. Bradley Cooper's take on A Star Is Born was recognized in almost all of the show's top categories - best drama, best director, best actor, best actress, best original song - which only makes Elliott's lack of a nomination more baffling. This is especially the case since two box-office winners - the Lady Gaga/Bradley Cooper powerhouse vehicle, A Star Is Born, and the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody - could be considered unavoidably "Musical" by most people. Vice topped all contenders Thursday with a surprising six nominations, including best picture, comedy, per the AP.

Some of the notable snubs this year include Atlanta being shut out of Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy and Widows receiving zero nominations.

Actress, 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.

Curiously, the Hollywood Foreign Press doesn't consider foreign-language films for best film, so Alfonso Cuaron's Netflix drama "Roma" was left out of the Globes' top category. Alas. While Stone was recognized for her role in the film, "The Favourite", her series received zero nominations. So were Better Call Saul, Black-ish, Maniac, and The Little Drummer Girl. The trendy "Twilight Zone"-inspired drama "Homecoming" scored 3 nominations, for best drama series and for lead actors Julia Roberts (who missed a drama film actress nod for "Ben Is Back") and up-and-comer Stephan James as therapist and patient in a spooky Florida rehab facility".

Samberg and Oh had a memorable back-and-forth during the Primetime Emmys back in September, recreating the infamous 2017 Oscars flub in which Warren Beatty incorrectly announced that "La La Land" won for Best Picture, when the victor was, in fact, "Moonlight".
