Meanwhile, his co-star Hugh Grant will compete for Best Actor in a Series alongside fellow Brit Benedict Cumberbatch – who has been recognised for his titular role in Patrick Melrose – and Daniel Brühl, Antonio Banderas and Darren Criss.

Ratings hit: Both Ben Whishaw and Hugh Grant will be at the ceremony in support of A Very English Scandal, which received three nominations

She will compete against Glenn Close, Lady Gaga, Nicole Kidman and Melissa McCarthy on the night.
Sacha Baron Cohen has earned his second Golden Globe nominations, 12 years on from Borat, for his latest project Who is America? which centered around pranking political figures and unsuspecting celebrities and civilians.

Surprise! Crazy Rich Asians is nominated for ‘Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy’ and Constance Wu (pictured with co-star Henry Golding) received a Best Actress nomination
Meanwhile, Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me) is the British star hoping to take home Best Supporting Actor in any Motion Picture, competing against Mahershala Ali, Timothee Chalamet, Adam Driver and Sam Rockwell.
This year’s ceremony has been nothing short of surprises, with comic book fans sharing their delight that the acclaimed Black Panther received a nod for Best Picture – Drama.
And after receiving much acclaim for its diverse cast, Crazy Rich Asians also earned a surprise nod for Best Picture – Musical Or Comedy.
He’s up: Sacha Baron Cohen has earned his second Golden Globe nominations, 12 years on from Borat, for his latest project Who is America?
Not every film actor made the cut, however, with Emma Stone and Jonah Hill out of the running for Netflix’s Maniac.
Also snubbed was This Is Us, one of the few broadcast network shows that has garnered awards respect amid an onslaught of cable and streaming shows. It failed to earn a best drama series bid or recognition for last year’s Globes (and previous Emmy Award) winner Sterling K Brown or the twice-nominated Chrissy Metz.
Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale the defending best drama series winner, was overlooked this time, a sting that follows its loss in this year’s Emmys to Game of Thrones. But Handmaid’s star Elisabeth Moss and co-star Yvonne Strahovski were nominated.
Iconic: Also among the big nods is Rachel Brosnahan, who is again nominated for Best Actress in a TV Series – Comedy for her role in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (pictured)
Sadly Thrones missed out on 2019 Globes consideration because new episodes didn’t air within the eligibility window, as the final season was delayed to air in April of next year.
Instead The Americans has been strongly recognised following it’s final season, along with FX’s Pose, set in 1980s New York and with a groundbreaking number of transgender cast members.
Donald Glover’s Atlanta was ignored again for Best Comedy Series though star Glover, who won for his role in 2017, was again nominated.
His competitors include Jim Carrey for Showtime’s Kidding, Michael Douglas for Netflix’s The Kominsky Method and Bill Hader, fresh off an Emmy win for Barry.
Henry Winkler, who claimed an Emmy for his supporting role in HBO’s Barry, is also up for a Globe. It would be his third after winning twice for his iconic role in Happy Days in 1977 and 1978.
The series itself is also competing for top comedy honours against defending Globes champ and Emmy winner The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
Acclaimed: In television categories, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story (pictured) received the most nominations with four in total
Issa Rae, a two-time nominee for Insecure, missed out on a Best Comedy Actress nom, but Candice Bergen got a welcome-back hug for CBS’ revived sitcom Murphy Brown.
She was a Globes favorite when the original series aired, earning nine nominations and winning in 1989.
Bergen is part of an all-white field of nominees, including Emmy winner Rachel Brosnahan for Mrs. Maisel.
Glover is the only black actor in his category, though actors Billy Porter (Pose) and Stephan James (Homecoming) did earn drama nods for their respective performances.
Nominations for FX’s The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story included Best limited series or TV movie, and nominations for stars Darren Criss, Penelope Cruz and Edgar Ramirez.
The series of course dominated the Primetime Emmy Awards earlier this year, with three wins including Best Actor for Glee star Criss.
