Nominations for the 76th annual Golden Globes

Sandra Oh, Andy Samberg to co-host Globes

Movies about race, politics and music dominated nominations for the Golden Globe awards on Thursday, setting the stage for the long Hollywood awards season leading up to the Oscars in February.

The 2018 Golden Globe Awards telecast averaged a 5.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 19 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research, putting it ahead of every show on television from the previous 10 months in total viewers, since the prior year's Academy Awards.

The as-yet-unnamed award will function as the equivalent to its film-centric HFPA counterpart, the Cecil B. DeMille Award, which has gone to icons like Oprah Winfrey, Meryl Streep, Denzel Washington, and George Clooney in recent years.

Globes-nominated Movies that are not available at all right now include "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse", "Vice", "The Favourite", "Mary Poppins Returns", "Mirai" and "If Beale Street Could Talk".

Leslie Mann ("This Is 40"), and Christian Slater ("Mr. Robot") announced the nominations for the awards, which will air Sunday, Jan. 6 at 8 p.m. on NBC and will be hosted by Sandra Oh ("Grey's Anatomy") and Andy Samberg ("Brooklyn 99").

Still, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association didn't make too many egregious errors.

On Monday, President Trump tweeted , "Looking forward to being with the Bush Family to pay my respects to President George H.W. The former president's body will arrive in Washington, D.C., today to lie in state in the U.S.

BBC dramas including A Very English Scandal, Bodyguard and Killing Eve received multiple nominations in the various categories announced today. And that run of odd bedfellows is set to continue in 2019, thanks to newly tapped hosting pair Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh. Elisabeth Moss got the sole nomination for the series for best actress, a prize she's won before.

This year's Golden Globe nominations included a few surprises - and a few snubs.

Of course, Samberg and Oh already proved their chops back in September, when they co-presented an award at the Emmys and nailed their scripted banter - a moment that landed on our list of the broadcast's highlights.

Actor, TV Series, Musical or Comedy: Sacha Baron Cohen, "Who Is America"; Jim Carrey, "Kidding"; Michael Douglas, "The Kominsky Method"; Donald Glover, "Atlanta"; Bill Hader, "Barry". Last year's host was comedian and late-night star Seth Meyers.

The 76th Golden Globes are set to air live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 6.

TNT received surprise nominations for the tiresome "The Alienist" - for limited series and for its star, the German actor Daniel Brühl.
