Golden Globes 2019: What to Watch For


• The 76th Golden Globe Awards will likely be held at eight p.m. Eastern time on the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh are the hosts, and the present will likely be on NBC.

• “A Star Is Born” and Lady Gaga are heavy favorites to win.

• Few movies have extra using on the ceremony than “Green Book,” which has divided critics and has thus far been a box-office disappointment.

• See the total record of nominees.

NBC and the givers of the Globes, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, have been promising “One Big Party!” in ads. There will be bubbles (3,500 mini-bottles of Moët & Chandon Champagne) and a ballroom stuffed with 15,000 tulips.

Oh, yes. And the trophies. Those are almost beside the point at this particular awards stop, which is mostly seen as a moneymaking moment — for NBC, for studios that gain a marketing hook for winter films, for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Besides, the association, with a long history of voting idiosyncrasies, has only 88 people who cast ballots. The Oscars, awarded next month, are voted on by about 8,200 movie industry professionals.

For all of the attention given to the movie winners, the Globes ceremony almost always starts with accolades for television work. And best actress in a TV drama promises to be one of the most intriguing matchups, pitting a co-host versus a Hollywood legend.
