Golden Globes nominations 2019: Irish produced film The Favourite nominated for Best Screenplay

It’s one of the first big announcements of awards season – the nominations for the 2019 Golden Globes.

It’s the 76th year of the event which sees nominees from the worlds of TV and film voted on by the journalists of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

The ‘major announcement’ that was being teased is the news that there will be a new award in the TV category which will be the equivalent of the Cecile B Demille award for film.

The first batch of nominations have been revealed, including a nom for Irish produced film The Favorite with Tony McNamara up for Best Screenplay.

The Favourite is fresh from landing a record-breaking 10 gongs (out of 13 nominations) at the British Independent Film Awards.  Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, it charts the the later years of Queen Anne, and the internal politics of her court, and stars Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, and Emma Stone. Element Pictures, headed up by Ed Guiney, produced. 

Terry Crews, Black Panther star Danai Gurira, Leslie Mann and Christian Slater are announcing the nominees from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills California.  Here’s the Globes live stream from Facebook:
