Films on racism, politics and music dominate the nominations of the 76th Golden Globe Gala, which takes place on Sunday night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, and opens the new Hollywood Grand Prix season, which will culminate in the award for Oscars, Mediafax reports .
The dark comedy "Vice" by Adam McKay, an extremely critical approach to the rise of former US vice president Dick Cheney, heads the six top nominations.
He is named, with five nominations, for the resumption of "A Star is Born" by Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga, the British Historical Comedy "The Favorite" and the 1960 "Road Trip" movie, a segregated America, "Green Book" .
Several favorites from critics and audiences, such as the widows of the widow, have been omitted, while the feature film "First Man" received only two nominations, but not in the category dedicated to the best drama.
Adam McKay described his film as "a wonderful depiction of power." "What we've been trying to do was present the present day, which can be quite dramatic and somewhat absurd and somewhat tragic at the same time," Reuters director said. In addition to the Golden Globe nomination for Best Drama, "Vice" was also selected in the actors' categories for Christian Bale's performances such as Dick Cheney, Amy Adams, Lynne Cheney, and Sam Rockwell as former US President George W. Bush.
The list of films nominated this year at Hollywood Foreign Press Association's awards also includes two films about racism – "If Beale Street Could Talk" by Barry Jenkins, who also directed "Moonlight" Oscar in 2017, and "BlacKkClansman" by Spike Lee.
Black Panther, by Ryan Coogler, also received a nomination for best drama.
"Green Book" star Viggo Mortensen, nominated together with his co-negotiator Mahershala Ali, tells Universal's production that he asks the public to "deeply think about society's past and present."
"Crazy Rich Asians," by John Chu, the first major film produced in the last 25 years in Hollywood with an exclusive Asian cast, brings a selection of diversity among the nominees, selected in "Best Comedy" and "Good Actress" ( Constance Wu).
The music also dominates with Bohemian Rhapsody, Rami Malek as Queen Freddie Mercury, A Star is born, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, and Mary Poppins Returns, a sequel to the classic Disney in 1964 with Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda. All these players received a nomination this year.
As far as the film is concerned in a language other than English, Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron, with the semi-autobiographical black and white drama "Rome", is out.
In the categories dedicated to television, in the four best nominations, he leads the series "The Assassination of Gianni Versace".
2018 The Golden Globe Gala celebrated the fight against sexual abuse in Hollywood, and not only after the shock wave of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, the prices attributed to television productions and films with powerful female characters. "Three billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri", by Martin McDonagh, led cinema awards, with four Golden Globes, while the HBO series "Big Little Lies" dominated the TV categories with four trophies in six nominations.
