No Sam Elliott and more Golden Globes nomination shockers

"Mary Poppins Returns": The soon-to-be released Disney musical received four nominations, including best musical or comedy, best actress in a musical or comedy (Emily Blunt), and best actor in a musical or comedy (Lin-Manuel Miranda), though the movie's songs were all snubbed in the best original song category.

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

Ryan Gosling: Gosling has previously been nominated for five Golden Globes.

Samberg is a two-time Golden Globe Award victor for Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Oh won a Golden Globe in 2006 for her performance on Grey's Anatomy. It was still nominated for best screenplay, best director and best foreign language film.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced that Sandra Oh, star of the critically acclaimed BBC America drama series Killing Eve and Andy Samberg, star of NBC's Golden Globe-winning comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, will co-host the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

The nominees for best animated film were: Incredibles 2, Isle of Dogs, Mirai, Ralph Breaks the Internet and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Samberg hosted the Emmy Awards in 2015, but it will be Oh's first time hosting a major awards show.

Oh co-executive produces "Killing Eve" and stars as Eve Polastri, an MI5 officer who hunts down and becomes entangled with a cold-blooded female assassin, earning a lead actress in a drama series nomination this year.

The ratings for last January's broadcast, hosted by Seth Meyers and graced with an impassioned speech by Oprah Winfrey, dipped 5 per cent with approximately 19 million viewers.
