Hollywood ready to party in (possibly) Trump-free Golden Globes

Hollywood ready to party in (possibly) Trump-free Golden Globes

The news comes from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which founded the awards ceremony in 1944. "Everyone is depressed, and maybe that's as good a reason as any that everyone could use a little time to laugh and celebrate".

The Golden Globes will be held January 6 at the Beverly Hills Hotel and air at 8:00 p.m. EST on NBC.

The "Killing Eve" star, who made history previous year as the first Asian woman nominated for the Emmy award for best actress in a drama series, has long spoken out about the importance of diversity and representation in Hollywood, and the paucity of roles for Asian actors.

The actress added that she was "not interested in [mentioning President Donald Trump] at all". The $200 million-grossing A Star Is Born landed the same nominations, while the vibrant rom-com Crazy Rich Asians was nominated for best ensemble at the SAG Awards and Best Motion Picture (Musical/Comedy) at the Golden Globes.

Actors Jessica Chastain and Sam Rockwell have been announced as the presenters for 2019 Golden Globe Awards.

A man claiming to be Whelan's brother said that Whelan had been in Moscow for a friend's wedding. David Whelan said he has no idea why his brother was targeted by the Russian security services.

Last year's Golden Globes were marked by celebrities turning out en masse in black in solidarity with the #MeToo sexual harassment scandal that was roiling Hollywood.

That's not to say smaller films won't get their due: Other strong contenders this year include Cuarón's Roma; Yorgos Lanthimos' twisted period drama The Favourite; Peter Farrelly's dramedy Green Book, and Adam McKay's satire Vice, the Dick Cheney biopic that has critics wildly divided.

"It's going to be great".

The real-life billboard looks exactly as it does in the movie - just Ally and her face, no slug at the bottom advertising for the Golden Globes or to catch A Star Is Born in theaters.

Aside from the stars being presenters in the show, Black Panther is also receiving nominations in the categories of Best Original Score, Best Original Song, and Best Drama. "I think people are ready and could use a little smile", said Samberg, who previously won a Golden Globe for the long-running police comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
