Full list of 2019 Golden Globe nominations

It’s a predictable sweep for A Star is Born but Vice and The Favourite may give Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga runs for their money. Plus Julia Roberts, previous Globe winner Elisabeth Moss and this year’s host Canadian Sandra Oh duke it out for Best Actress in a TV Drama.

Before Terry Crews, Leslie Mann, Christian Slater and Danai Gurira even got to reading the 2019 noms, HFPA president Meher Tatna announced that the 76th Golden Globes would be the first to feature a brand new award for excellence in television, in the same vein as the ceremony’s Cecil B. DeMille Award for film.

Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy

Looks like Bill Hader's first foray into dark scripted comedy really paid off with a nod for the show, himself and co-star Henry Winkler.  Plus fan-favourite The Good Place gets a shot at the Globe in its third season and Emmy-sweeper The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel obviously gets a shout-out.

Best Television Series - Drama

What, no This is Us? The family drama surprisingly received no nominations whatsoever after receiving several nods last year, including a Best TV Actor win for Sterling K. Brown. Other biggies in the category, Homecoming and Killing Eve are not at all surprising.

Best Supporting Actress - Limited Series

This is Penelope Cruz’s fourth Golden Globe nomination but she’s up against two-time Emmy winner Alex Borstein in the category, meaning this onei is  going to be a tough one to predict.

Henry Winkler already won the Emmy for his stint as eccentric acting teacher Gene Cousineau in Barry – after four decades of waiting for his TV due – could his Golden Globe not be far behind? We can’t count Winkler the winner just yet though; Alan Arkin is a GG vet with six nominations and one win under his belt.

Is Sharp Objects this year’s Big Little Lies? When the drama starring Amy Adams first came out, people quickly drew comparisons between the two female-led HBO shows. The series missed the Emmy cut-off for 2018, but they're pitted against this year’s winner The Assassination of Gianni Versace for the Globe.

Between the heavyweights and Hollywood royalty in this category, we’re biting our nails already. Amy Adams is not only nominated for leading Sharp Objects, she also picked up a nod for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama for Vice. Plus Patricia Arquette and Laura Dern have both won Golden Globes in the past and Regina King and Connie Britton are both previous nominees.

Relative newcomer Darren Criss managed to beat out veteran actors Antonio Banderas and Benedict Cumberbatch to win the 2018 Emmy – can he do it again at the Golden Globes? Add in a seasoned Hugh Grant, in political crime thriller A Very English Scandal, and you’ve got a proper race!

Antonio Banderas - Genius: Picasso

Leading TV Actor - Comedy

If you’re surprised to see Sacha Baron Cohen on this list, you’re not the only one. The comedian somehow garnered a nom for his skit comedy show while The Good Place’s Ted Danson was left out of the noms entirely. The rest of the category was pretty predictable with Donald Glover getting the nod for the previous season of Atlanta and Michael Douglas, Jim Carrey and Bill Hader all recognized for the first seasons of their respective shows.

In The Good Place’s third season, comedic legend Kristen Bell finally gets some critical recognition for her hilarious portrayal of Eleanor Shellstrop. The revival ladies also got their dues with Debra Messing’s nom for Will & Grace and Candice Bergen’s for the return of Murphy Brown. Alison Brie receives her second nomination for GLOW and Emmy-winner Rachel Brosnahan rounds out the list.

Another seriously stacked category. Sandra Oh made history at the Emmys with her nomination but ultimately lost to Claire Foy. For the Globes, she’s up against America's Sweetheart Julia Roberts in her TV debut and previous Globe-winners Keri Russell and Elisabeth Moss.

Canada’s Stephen James proved he could hold his own opposite Julia Roberts in Homecoming and the HFPA clearly noticed. He’s competing with Jason Bateman, who is nominated for Ozark for the second time, and several other newcomers to the category.

Stephen James - Homecoming 

Richard Madden - Bodyguard 

Billy Porter - Pose

Best Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical

The HFPA is really pushing the limits of the “comedy/musical” category this year with everything from a Disney musical to a political biopic to a culturally significant romantic comedy. How do you even compare Christian Bale as Dick Cheney to the cast of Crazy Rich Asians or the musical stylings of Mary Poppins?

Crazy Rich Asians 

The Favourite

Green Book 

Mary Poppins Returns


Best Motion Picture - Drama

As predicted, A Star is Born was nominated in every category for which it was eligible. But the Bradley Cooper-led drama is up against some tough competition in Best Picture with timely and critically-acclaimed pictures like Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman and If Beale Street Could Talk.

Black Panther


Bohemian Rhapsody

If Beale Street Could Talk 

A Star is Born

Best Motion Picture - Animated

The real question in this category isn’t “Which movie will win?” it’s “Which PIXAR movie will win?” The Disney-owned company has two films in the running – Incredibles 2 and Ralph Breaks the Internet – but the well-received Wes Anderson film Isle of Dogs may just be a winner.

Incredibles 2

Isle of Dogs 


Ralph Breaks the Internet 

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Best Motion Picture - Foreign Language

With a constant and vocal demand for better and more equal representation in media, it’s shocking that the only female director to get a major nod at this year’s Golden Globes is Nadine Labaki for the Lebanon-based film, Capernaum. Last year, the only female in the category was Angelina Jolie for First They Killed My Father.

Capernaum - Lebanon 

Girl - Belgium 

Never Look Away - Germany 

Roma - Mexico

Shoplifters - Japan

Best Actress in a Supporting Role - Drama

Both Amy Adams and Regina King have both impressively managed to garner nominations in both TV and movies this year. The two powerhouses are joined in the category by Claire Foy (who also starred in The Crown this year) and co-stars Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz from The Favourite.

Amy Adams - Vice

Claire Foy - First Man 

Regina King - If Beale Street Could Talk 

Emma Stone - The Favourite 

Rachel Weisz - The Favourite

Best Actor in a Supporting Role - Drama 

Christian Bale is bound to get a whole lot of praise for his complete transformation into Dick Cheney for Vice, but Sam Rockwell’s George W. Bush is so spot-on, it’s crazy. He’s got some tough competition though, with Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali and previously-nominated Timothee Chalamet in the category.

Mahershala Ali - Green Book 

Timothee Chalamet - Beautiful Boy

Adam Driver - BlacKkKlansman

Richard E. Grant - Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Best Actress in a Film - Drama 

Glenn Close is finally on track to the Oscar that’s evaded her for decades, but Lady Gaga may just swoop in and snatch the honour and that starts at the Golden Globes  -- the unofficial preview to the Academy Awards. We’ve also got previous Oscar and Globe winner Nicole Kidman in the category.

Glenn Close - The Wife

Lady Gaga - A Star is Born 

Nicole Kidman  - Destroyer 

Melissa McCarthy - Can You Ever Forgive Me? 

Rosamund Pike - A Private War

Best Actor in a Film - Drama 

Again, A Star is Born gets a predictable nod, but Rami Malek’s uncanny Freddie Mercury deserves a category all its own. Plus we might just see some newcomers spring ahead like Lucas Hedges in Boy Erased or John David Washington in BlacKkKlansman.

Bradley Cooper - A Star is Born 

Willem Dafoe - At Eternity's Gate 

Lucas Hedges - Boy Erased 

Rami Malek - Bohemian Rhapsody

John David Washington - BlacKkKlansman 

Best Actor in a Film - Comedy

Christian Bale may have rendered himself completely unrecognizable in Vice but he’s up against Lin-Manuel Miranda’s charming chimney sweep in Mary Poppins Returns, Viggo Mortensen’s rough but endearing southern driver in Green Book and Robert Redford in likely his last role ever. This category may not be as settled as we thought.

Christian Bale - Vice

Lin-Manuel Miranda - Mary Poppins Returns 

Viggo Mortensen - Green Book

Robert Redford - The Old Man and the Gun 

John C. Reilly - Stan & Ollie

Best Actress in a Film - Comedy 

Julie Andrews won a Golden Globe (and an Oscar!) for her role as Mary Poppins in 1965; could Emily Blunt be on the same track? She’s up against some tough competition including 15-year-old Elsie Fisher for her role in Eighth Grade and Constance Wu who wowed this year in Crazy Rich Asians.

Emily Blunt - Mary Poppins Returns 

Olivia Colman - The Favourite 

Charlize Theron - Tully

Elsie Fisher - Eighth Grade 

Constance Wu - Crazy Rich Asians 

Best Director

Legendary documentarian Spike Lee returned to historical fiction this year to tell the unbelievable true story of the African American police officer who infiltrated the KKK in the 1970s. The film is critically acclaimed (as Spike Lee productions often are) but Bradley Cooper has been generating awards buzz since before A Star is Born was even released. This is sure to be a tight race.

Bradley Cooper - A Star is Born

Alfonso Cuaron - Roma 

Peter Farrelly - Green Book 

Spike Lee - BlacKkKlansman

Adam McKay - Vice

Best Screenplay - Motion Picture

Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron is one of several artists to be nominated in two categories this year – he’s nominated for both Best Director and Best Screenplay for Roma (which is also nominated for Best Foreign Language film). The other films in the category also have multiple nominations, but not attributed to one person.

Roma - Alfonso Cuaron

The Favourite - Deborah Davis and Tony McNamara

If Beale Street Could Talk - Barry Jenkins

Vice - Adam McKay 

Green Book - Peter Farrelly, Nick Vallelonga, Brian Currie

Best Original Score - Motion Picture

First Man composer Justin Hurwitz has spoken about how the music was so crucial to portraying the moon landing in the film but can the artistic score compete with the nostalgia of Mary Poppins? Plus the drama-heavy Black Panther accompaniment gets a nod as well as the suspense-building A Quiet Place score.

A Quiet Place 

Isle of Dogs

Black Panther

First Man

Mary Poppins Returns

Best Original Song - Motion Picture

When A Star is Born came out, people all but assumed Gaga was a shoo-in for the Best Original Song category but with big names like Dolly Parton, Kendrick Lamar and Annie Lennox on the list, this one looks too close to call.

"All the Stars" - Black Panter, Kendrick Lamar and SZA

"Girl in the Movies" - Dumplin', Dolly Parton

"Requiem for a Private War" - A Private War, Annie Lennox

"Revelation" - Boy Erased, Troye Sivan and Jonsi

"Shallow" - A Star is Born, Lady Gaga
