BC-Entertainment Advisory-Golden Globes

January 3, 2019

Hollywood’s 2019 awards season kicks off with the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, Jan. 6, in a show that will undoubtedly draw comparisons to last year’s ceremony dominated by #MeToo moments. Hosts Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg will lead the show, which will honor achievements in film and television. This year’s show is not without changes — the Globes are unveiling a new statuette and a new honor for television luminaries, aptly named for its first recipient, Carol Burnett. The leading nominee this year is “Vice,” which has a narrow lead over awards season favorites like Bradley Cooper’s tear-jerking revival “A Star Is Born,” the interracial road-trip drama “Green Book” and the period romp “The Favourite.” The AP plans all-formats coverage of the show, which will air live on NBC. Here’s our coverage plan.
