Billy Porter Gonna Get That Golden Globe

December 9, 2019

The category has been a particularly tough race this year with Joaquin Phoenix and Adam Driver long considered the front runners, and Jonathan Pryce and Antonio Banderas being lauded as giving career-best performances this year.

The three-time Oscar victor received her first Golden Globe nomination in 1979 for The Deer Hunter, and went on to win her first Golden Globe trophy the following year for best supporting actress in a motion picture for Kramer vs. Kramer. The Morning Show received a best TV series drama nomination as well as two best TV actress nominations for its leads Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.

Her most recent Globe was the Cecil B. DeMille Award for career achievement, which was awarded to her in 2017, but she already has been nominated twice since then - a year ago for her role of a newspaper owner in Steven Spielberg's The Post, and now for her work on Big Little Lies. The Golden Globes wasn't swayed, though, giving the epic fantasy series only one nomination, Best Actor for Kit Harington's performance as Jon Snow. (Swift co-wrote the song with Andrew Lloyd Webber, and the Golden Globe way is to simply name the songs themselves rather than the performers or songwriters.) She's competing against fellow heavyweight Beyoncé, also up for a track from a feline-themed musical.

Over the weekend, several Saudi nationals were detained for questioning in connection to the attack, a U.S. official told CNN . The 19-year-old was an "all-star athlete" who took part in running and basketball before joining the Navy .

Awards season is heating up now that the nominations for the 2020 Golden Globes have been announced in full. Women were entirely shut out of the Best Motion Picture, directing, and screenplay categories with the exception of 1917, nominated for Best Motion Picture, being cowritten by Krysty Wilson-Cairns, and you could nearly say the same for people of color. "The Irishman" has already been hailed as the best picture by the New York Film Critics Circle and National Board of Review.

Actress-screenwriter Emma Thompson was a surprise addition to the Best Actress In A Comedy Or Musical category. While the series and the actress were nominated for an Emmy for the show's final season, "Fleabag" and Phoebe Waller-Bridge landed the surprise wins over the veteran actress.

The Golden Globes have been a safe place for HBO's "Game of Thrones". It's entirely possible that you'll see movies like Marriage Story and The Irishman receive more critical acclaim.
