Hollywood awards season kicked off on Thursday with the announcement of this year's Golden Globe nominations.

Producers on Wednesday announced the co-hosts for the 6 January ceremony.

On the TV side, Amazon's "Homecoming" and Ryan Murphy's "Pose" may score nominations in their first eligible awards show.

"Sandra and Andy are the ideal choices to host this world-class event", said Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, the co-chairmen of NBC Entertainment, in a statement. "It's sure to be another unforgettable fun-filled night".

Both Samberg and Oh have had a pretty fantastic year on television in 2018.

Samberg is a former Saturday Night Live, cast member and a previous Golden Globe victor for television comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine.


"We're excited to welcome Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg as co-hosts of Hollywood's Party of the Year", HFPA president Meher Tatna said in a statement.

The industry's biggest attractions, however, have faced ingrained skepticism from Oscar voters, which explains the "popular film" trial balloon, which many saw as an act of desperation and pandering meant to mollify ABC, the network that televises the awards, after a sizable dip in last year's ratings. Well, Marvel Studios made some cinematic history here by scoring their its first Best Drama nomination. She will assist with the distributing of trophies during the 2019 Golden Globe Awards ceremony and work with a nonprofit organization to raise awareness for the cause of her choosing. And, of course, last year's comedy victor, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", whose second season premiered Wednesday, scored expected nods for series, star Rachel Brosnahan and supporting actress Alex Borstein.

Also left out, to gasps heard across social media, was Ethan Hawke's performance as an anguished pastor in First Reformed and Pawel Pawlikowski's Polish stunner Cold War, his follow-up to the Oscar-winning Ida.

The Golden Globe Awards, like many shows of its kind, is caught up in a downward spiral of viewer indifference.

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

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association will unveil their nominations beginning at 8:15 a.m. EST. The pair presented an award together at the Emmy Awards in September. NBC picked it up a few days later.
