Tomorrow, the 2019 Golden Globes nominations are officially coming out — with that in mind, be prepared for a lot of discussion here at CarterMatt! We’ll be around for a lot of tomorrow with analysis of the various awards, results, snubs and so much more.
If you do want to watch the nominations be announced live, just know that you gotta be up early for them — especially if you are on the West Coast like we are. While the Emmys have shifted their longstanding tradition of announcing nominations bright and early in the morning (or, in California, actually before sunrise), the Hollywood Foreign Press (the organization behind the Globes) have yet to actually do the same. Instead, they are making it so that the announcement of the nominees is going to happen at 5:05 a.m. tomorrow morning Pacific time. You read that correctly, and yes it is absolutely brutal.
So, where can you watch the nominations? The best way to get a live stream is over at the official Golden Globes website. We recommend heading over there a few minutes before the designated time just in case there are some bumps in the digital road; try refreshing the page in the event that you don’t see the stream right away.
Typically the nomination announcements are short, but reasonably entertaining. You really have to hope that they are if you’re getting up that early for them! The TV nominations are going to be mixed in with the movie ones — the Golden Globes tries to bring to you the best of both worlds. We actually think that TV is now on the level of feature films and we hope that the Globes treats them as such.
If you missed it…
Earlier today, it was announced that Andy Samberg and Killing Eve star Sandra Oh were going to be the hosts for this year’s ceremony, which airs in January on NBC. While this may seem like a totally-random duo on the surface, remember that the two of them had a particularly-memorable presenting bit at the Emmys recently and that Samberg is an NBC guy — he is a former Saturday Night Live cast member and his show Brooklyn Nine-Nine recently relocated to NBC after spending many years over at Fox.
In a statement announcing the decision to bring on board Sandra and Andy, here is what Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, co-chairmen of NBC Entertainment, had to say:
“Sandra and Andy are the perfect choices to host this world-class event … They bring wit, charm and style to a room filled with the very best of film and television. It’s sure to be another unforgettable fun-filled night.”
