The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) on Thursday unveils the nominations for the 76th Golden Globes, the event that recognizes the best of the year in film and television and serves as the kick off to the awards season in Hollywood.
The announcement will be made at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, Los Angeles (California), from 05.15 in the morning (PT).
Danai Gurira, Leslie Mann and Christian Slater will be responsible for unveiling the names of the nominees.
In the cinematographic field, “A Star is Born”, the debut behind the scenes of Bradley Cooper, leaves as one of the great favorites in categories like best drama movie (Warner Bros. decided to include her in this field instead of better comedy or musical), best actor (Cooper), best actress (Lady Gaga) or best director.
In addition to having been a critical success, the film has in its favor the recognition of the public, which has so far resulted in a collection of more than 350 million dollars worldwide.
Other titles that may accompany the Cooper film as best drama movie nominees are “BlacKKlansman” by Spike Lee; “First Man”, by Damien Chazelle; “Black Panther” by Ryan Coogler, or “If Beale Street Could Talk” by Barry Jenkins.
In the nominations for the best drama performances, experts say they will not miss names like Ethan Hawke (“First Reformed”), Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”) or Ryan Gosling (“First Man”) in the field male, as well as Glenn Close (“The Wife”), Viola Davis (“Widows”) or Melissa McCarthy (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) in the feminine.
In addition, the section of best director could open the doors to Mexican Alfonso Cuarón for “Rome”, which surely will be among the candidates for best foreign film.
As best comedy or musical, the great candidates are “The Favorite”, “Mary Poppins Returns”, “Green Book”, “Vice” and “Crazy Rich Asians”, among others.
Viggo Mortensen (“Green Book”), Christian Bale (“Vice”) and Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Mary Poppins Returns”) seem fixed among the candidates for best comedy or musical actor, just like Olivia Colman (“The Favorite” ), Emily Blunt (“Mary Poppins Returns”) and Constance Wu (“Crazy Rich Asians”) for best actress.
Also, the names that sound with more options as best supporting actor are Mahershala Ali (“Green Book”), Sam Elliott (“A Star Is Born”) and Timothee Chalamet (“Beautiful Boy”). In the female category, the favorites are Regina King (“If Beale Street Could Talk”), Emma Stone (“The Favorite”) and Amy Adams (“Vice”).
In the television section, the dramas “Killing Eve” and “The Handmaid’s Tale” start as the top favorites, followed by “Homecoming”, “The Americans” and “This is Us”.
Matthew Rhys (“The Americans”) and Kevin Costner (“Yellowstone”) appear in all the forecasts to lead the best drama actor category, just like Julia Roberts (“Homecoming”) and Robin Wright (“House of Cards”) as best actress.
The comedies “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “Barry” will surely make room between the candidates and get Rachel Brosnahan and Bill Hader are nominated as best actress and best actor, respectively.
In the field dedicated to the best miniseries or film for television, “Assassination of Gianni Versace” and “Sharp Objects” start as big favorites.
The Spanish Penelope Cruz and the Venezuelan Édgar Ramírez could get nominations for best actress and best supporting actor for “Assassination of Gianni Versace.” (EFEUSA) .-
