Harrison Ford, Lupita Nyong'o, Gary Oldman, Sam Rockwell, and Halle Berry are among the stars set to present awards at the 76th annual Golden Globes Awards telecast on January 6. "How many gazillions of people have seen Black Panther and Crazy Rich Asians?".
"I'm not interested in [talking about Trump] at all", she said in a conversation with co-host Andy Samberg that was published Wednesday in The Hollywood Reporter. However, both hosts agreed that they want to focus on the massive changes being made in Hollywood in the wake of large diversity movements sparked by the #MeToo campaign and several others that have led to an incredibly different casting lineup in film and TV.
From ill-timed potty breaks to riveting acceptance speeches, here's a look back at those Golden Globe Awards moments that were absolutely unforgettable. Out of the 10 nominees for best picture, voted for by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), four are from directors of colour, a new record for the Globes. Leading the way is the hit movie: 'Crazy Rich Asians.' CGTN's May Lee reports.
Bradley Cooper's A Star Is Born continues to be the one to beat in the Best Picture race, with five total Golden Globe nominations, including Best Picture (Drama).
The 24-year-old joins fellow actors Chadwick Boseman, Jessica Chastain, Taraji P Henson, Allison Janney, Gary Oldman, Sam Rockwell and Octavia Spencer on the list of award presenters for Sunday night's ceremony at the Beverly Hilton. A Black Panther win would be the first time this award went to the year's highest grossing USA film since 2003. "Jeff Bridges is very much engaged in ending hunger for children and helping the environment, and that matters to us".
Samberg has taken home two Golden Globes in his own right for Brooklyn Nine-Nine, while Oh took home a Golden Globe in 2006 for Grey's Anatomy.
The ceremony itself will take place at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
