Britons get starring role in Golden Globes nominations

With its latest accolades - a Golden Globe nomination as outstanding drama on Thursday, and recognition from the American Film Institute's annual 10-best list - the next hurdle would be the Academy Awards, which would represent a breakthrough for superhero movies. So NBC, which airs the ceremony January 6, will reap no official recognition, just ad dollars, cementing the impression that the only events worth watching on network TV are those that are broadcast live (the Super Bowl, the Oscars, the Thanksgiving Day parade, musicals such as "Jesus Christ Superstar").

"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. "It's sure to be another unforgettable fun-filled night".

For even the often-quirky selections of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, a collection of 88 mostly less-known freelance film journalists, the strong support for Vice (which arrives in theatres on December 25) was a surprise.

The two celebrities will be first-time hosts for the Golden Globes, which honour both television and film.

The duo won praise for their chemistry when they were presenting at the Emmy Awards for television in September.

Added Mike Mahan, Executive Producer and CEO, dick clark productions. Oh is the first person of color to emcee the show. She didn't win but made a big splash by bringing her parents to the awards show. The ceremony airs live on NBC in the U.S.; at the moment no United Kingdom broadcaster is due to show it.

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. The HFPA loves to anoint new shows, but this year, Barry is the only new comedy that really blew the doors off. Kidding is a great Jim Carrey performance trapped in uneven execution, and The Kominsky Method is merely okay, and if it didn't star Alan Arkin and Michael Douglas we wouldn't even be talking about it. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", on which he stars as Detective Jake Peralta, was canceled by Fox in May after five seasons.
