Golden Globes announce new lifetime achievement category for television

Irene MckinneyDec 07, 2018

NBC, the TV home of the Golden Globe Awards for the past 23 years, did not officially become the network for the 2019 awards until September when it closed a new eight-year deal with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and dick clark productions to keep the show. The film about a transgender girl training to be a ballerina has been the subject of some criticism for its depiction of trans people. Category-based drama is nearly always an issue with this awards show, since studios are notorious for jockeying between competitions that sort-of fit (even sometimes making major stretches) while campaigning for projects that can arguably slide into different boxes. Rhode Island native and onetime MA resident Peter Farrelly garnered a Best Director nomination, as well as a Best Screenplay nod, which he shared with co-writers Nick Vallelonga and Peabody native Brian Currie. The Globes are famous for honoring upcoming talent, so it will be exciting to see what happens on the big night in January.

Nominees will be announced on Thursday morning in America. But the film and Hawke were left out completely.

Even though she's been there and done that with the Globes, she's still positioned to make history if she wins again.

Black Panther has some stiff competition in the Best Drama category, going up against BlacKkKlansman (directed by Spike Lee), If Beale Street Could Talk (directed by Barry Jenkins), A Star is Born (directed by Bradley Cooper), and Bohemian Rhapsody (directed by Bryan Singer).

The film's Golden Globe nominations include: Best Motion Picture - Drama; Best Original Song (All The Stars) by Kendrick Lamar, Mark Spears, Anthony Tiffith, Solana Rowe and Al Shuckburgh; and also Best Original Score by Ludwig Goransson. Just previous year it was up for drama series, supporting actress (Chrissy Metz), and actor (Sterling K. Brown, who won). But when nominations come out and one of the best shows, let alone best comedies, on TV isn't nominated, I'm not sure what to call that. Yes, the film is full of heart and contains some drama, but these categories are so loosey-goosey, that leaving out the Pervuian bear seems like a crime.

The show will be up against queer favourite Killing Eve for best TV drama, which also saw Sandra Oh get a nomination for best actress in a TV drama.
