The Golden Globes got a few things right

Golden Globes nominations preview 5 things to watch for including ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ vs. ‘Roma

Isan Elba, daughter of Idris Elba, will be the 2019 Golden Globes Ambassador.

Yep, it's officially a bloody award show season! 2019 also brought major shenanigans occurring within TV categories, as we will discuss below.

Actor, TV Series-Drama: Jason Bateman, "Ozark"; Stephan James, "Homecoming"; Richard Madden, "Bodyguard"; Billy Porter, "Pose"; Matthew Rhys, "The Americans". 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.

Oh and Samberg will "bring wit, charm and style to a room filled with the very best of film and television", Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, co-chairmen of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement.

While the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, a collection of 88 mostly lesser-known freelance film journalists, is known for its quirkier selections and categorizations ("Get Out" past year slotted in as a comedy), few saw the resounding success of "Vice" coming. Up for best picture, comedy, alongside "Vice" are "The Favourite", "Green Book", "Mary Poppins Returns" and "Crazy Rich Asians". That's all well and good for the Comedy side, but oh boy, the competition for the Drama category is going to be fierce.

The movie line-up includes several other films about racial injustice - "If Beale Street Could Talk" from Barry Jenkins and director Spike Lee's "BlacKkKlansman" - along with black empowerment superhero movie "Black Panther", which gave Walt Disney Co DIS.N the second-highest-grossing movie worldwide of 2018 with a $1.3 billion box office.

But the Globes also handed nominations to some up-and-comers, including Lucas Hedges (Boy Erased), Timothee Chalamet (Beautiful Boy) and Elsie Fisher, the 15-year-old star of the coming-of-age tale Eighth Grade.

While that may seem like a odd coupling on paper, the duo were a highlight when presenting at the Emmy Awards together in September; an appearance which likely had a role in today's announcement. So they didn't forget Atlanta, one of the absolute best shows on television, they just...didn't nominate it. Look, I love The Good Place, but this was not their best year.

In addition to Best Drama, the film has also earned nominations for Best Original Song ("All the Stars" by Kendrick Lamar) and Best Original Score (by Ludwig Göransson).
