Another year, another amazing collection of performances, pictures and filmmakers to celebrate.
January 2019 will mark the 76th annual Golden Globes and Thursday, Dec. 6 at 8 a.m. ET Leslie Mann, Danai Gurira, Terry Crews, and Christian Slater will announce the nominees for its film and TV awards.
Sitting out of this year’s race are several high profile shows including: “Game of Thrones”, “Stranger Things” and “Veep”, since they did not air any new episodes in 2018. Joining those titles, “The Crown”, “Mr. Robot”, “Curb Your Enthusiasm”, “Better Things”, “SMILF”, “Master of None” and “Transparent” will also be excluded from this year’s list.
But with some of these heavy-hitters ineligible, dramas like “Killing Eve”, “Homecoming”, “Pose”, “Haunting of Hill House” and “Counterpart” are likely to take advantage.
The new dramas are most likely to get nods alongside freshman comedies like “Barry”, “Forever”, “Kidding”, “The Kominsky Method”, “Camping” and “Who Is America”.
Honouring the best in both TV and film, the announcement is set to stream on the Globes’ official Facebook page where it’s possible the host of this year’s awards show will also be made known.
Aside from keeping their host under wraps, the Globes is also upgrading their statuette. Made of different materials, the award will now measure three-quarters of an inch taller and one-quarter of an inch wider at the base, and it will weigh over two pounds more than its previous incarnation.
The 76th annual Golden Globes will air Sunday, January 6 at 8 p.m. ET.
