Yet for an industry still grappling with issues pertaining to inclusion, and an award-show apparatus wrestling with a movie business increasingly reliant on superheroes and science fiction, an Oscar nod to "Black Panther" would, indeed, represent a noteworthy gesture, in more ways than one, toward Hollywood's new realities.

In an interview earlier this year, the former Grey's Anatomy star said she enjoyed "delving deeply into a piece about female psychology". It nearly makes that steep Amazon Prime membership worth it.

Mexican film "Roma" was nominated in the foreign language group.

Actor, TV Series-Drama: Jason Bateman, "Ozark"; Stephan James, "Homecoming"; Richard Madden, "Bodyguard"; Billy Porter, "Pose"; Matthew Rhys, "The Americans". A Star Is Born, The Favourite, and Green Book also earned multiple nominations, as did TV shows like The Assassination of Gianni Versace, Sharp Objects, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. However, they both feature dark and tragic subject matter, so they're not entirely comedic, even if they're filled with, say, flashes of Freddie Mercury's brilliantly flippant and sarcastic wit and life-affirming moments within both films.

There's no such thing as a sure thing when it comes to the mercurial Hollywood Foreign Press Association and its Golden Globe nominations, but this year saw a number of surprises, like the dominance of Adam McKay's Dick Cheney film "Vice", and a number of truly shocking exclusions. Meanwhile, in the category of Best Picture - Musical or Comedy, the nominees are Crazy Rich Asians, The Favourite, Green Book, Mary Poppins Returns, and Vice.

The deal means, for example, that Disney/Marvel's "Black Panther" - nominated in three Golden Globes categories - will be available to rent in HD for $2 (normally $3.99) and to buy in HD for $10 (normally $19.99).

"We know that if we want to live in a world that looks more like Wakanda, the first step is you invest in women and girls", Gurira said at The Hollywood Reporter's 2018 Women in Entertainment event. In a demonstration organized by the then-just-founded Time's Up, many women wore black on the red carpet.

While that may seem like a unusual coupling on paper, the duo were a highlight when presenting at the Emmy Awards together in September; an appearance which likely had a role in today's announcement.

In addition to being Marvel Studios' first Best Picture nomination, the third-highest-grossing movie of all time in the USA is the first super hero/genre film to be recognized in the Best Picture, Drama category. The studio behind it, A24, had a hard year in general with the Globes, securing only one nomination for Elsie Fisher's breakout performance in the coming-of-age movie "Eighth Grade".

Who will host the 2019 Golden Globes? . Likewise, Toni Collette was expected to gain a nod for her terrifyingly transformative turn in A24's Hereditary, and that didn't happen. It arrives in theaters December 25. Winners in 25 categories - 14 in film and 11 in television - are voted on by the HFPA.

We've compiled a list of some of the snubs that we were shocked by this morning!
