Black Panther and BlacKkKlansman and More Diverse Films Earn Golden Globe Noms

We watched plenty of great films and television shows this year.  And, we couldn’t be more excited for the 2019 Golden Globe nominations! Although, the film Black Panther starring Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira and Lupita Nyong’o, scored three nominations—Best Motion Picture (Drama), Best Original Song and Best Original Score, what’s up with Ryan Coogler being snubbed for best director? Or, why wasn’t Chadwick Boseman (T’Challa) and Michael B. Jordan (Erik Killmonger) recognized for their powerhouse performances in the blockbuster film?  (Head scratching.) 

Aside from the actors and director being snubbed, Coogler has alot to be proud of as Black Panther is the first superhero movie in history to be nominated in the best drama category.

The good news is that, we couldn’t be happier for Spike Lee on Best Director nomination for BlacKkKlansman, 29 years after his last nomination for Do The Right Thing.  So well deserved on a very important film that is so timely. Audiences around the world witnessed the films breakout star, John David Washington, a chip off the old block, as he’s following in the footsteps  of his iconic father, Denzel. The younger Washington received a Best Actor in a Motion Picture-Drama for his work in the Spike Lee Joint masterpiece.

 

Our congratulations  go out to all of the nominees.

The 76th Golden Globe Awards will be held on Jan. 6, 2019, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh will host the ceremony.
