Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg to host Golden Globe ceremony

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

Adam McKay's "Vice" and Ryan Murphy's "American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace" led the nominations for the 76th annual Golden Globes on Thursday. When a "Sam" was announced in the best supporting actor nominations, I truly assumed it was Elliott and only later realized it was Sam Rockwell, for playing George W. Bush in Vice.

Kiwi actress Thomasin McKenzie was not nominated for her role in "Leave No Trace". And to prove how perspicacious the Hollywood Foreign Press can be, it awarded Sacha Baron Cohen a stealth nod for best actor in comedy series for Showtime's "Who Is America?", presenting a threat to Douglas, Donald Glover ("Atlanta"), Jim Carrey ("Kidding") and this year's Emmy victor Bill Hader ("Barry").

The winners in the film categories...

Meher Tatna is President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Samberg was the obvious choice to host the awards.

Several nominated films aren't now in the home-video window yet, but are available to pre-order on FandangoNow (and are eligible for the 50% discount).

Drama: Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman, Bohemian Rhapsody, If Beale Street Could Talk, A Star Is Born. And because it was the Golden Globes, there were, of course, some downright freakish choices, including Bohemian Rhapsody being nominated for Best Picture.

It's entirely possible Moss thought he wasn't going to get a shot to replace Mike McCarthy following the season. He said the Packers need someone who will hold Aaron Rodgers and everybody else accountable.

"Green Book", a comedy-drama about the unlikely friendship between a black concert pianist (Mahershala Ali) and the white driver (Viggo Mortensen) hired to safely escort him through a segregated South, was a big victor, scoring five nominations.

While some critics have taken issue with Green Book for relying on outdated racial tropes, its once flagging Oscar campaign has lately received a boost with both better ticket sales and accruing awards love.

Yalitza Aparicio: "Roma" was ineligible for a best picture nomination but still earned nods in the best foreign language film, best director and best screenplay categories.

Paul Schrader's punishing drama "First Reformed" about a protestant minister played by Ethan Hawke got a handful of Independent Spirit Award nominations, was selected by the National Board of Review and AFI as one of the top films of the year and won big at the Gotham Awards. (It did land nominations for Claire Foy and its score.) The news was worse for Steve McQueen's heist thriller Widows, which was shut out entirely. "Cold War" was omitted from that category. There were plenty of pleasant and unexpected surprises, though, including The Good Place picking up two nominations after being shut out previous year, and Elsie Fisher being nominated for Eighth Grade.

Even though she's been there and done that with the Globes, she's still positioned to make history if she wins again. He was given the group's Cecil B DeMille achievement award in 1994.

Animated Film: "Incredibles 2", "Isle of Dogs", "Mirai", "Ralph Breaks the Internet", "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse". Since then, he has hosted four times, Fey and Poehler three times, with NBC's late-night stars Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers taking turns the last two years.

Samberg hosted the Emmy Awards in 2015, but it will be Oh's first time hosting a major awards show.
