A slew of stars, including the film's own Danai Gurira, announced on Thursday the nominations for the 76th annual ceremony to be held in January in Beverly Hills, California.

Vice topped all contenders on Thursday (Friday NZ Time), in nominations announced at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, including best picture, comedy and best actor nominations for Christian Bale's almost unrecognisable performance as the former vice president. This time around, its only nod went to Donald Glover, who was recognized in the best comedic actor category.

Oh is now riding high on the critical and ratings success of her new series, BBC America's "Killing Eve".

While it is unclear if Samberg may be nominated in the Best Actor - Television Series Musical or Comedy category, many have speculated that Oh could be nominated for her work on Killing Eve.

Awards season is officially off to the races with today's Golden Globe Awards nominations.

Actor, Limited Series or Movie Made for Television: Antonio Banderas, "Genius: Picasso"; Daniel Bruhl, "The Alienist"; Darren Criss, "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story"; Benedict Cumberbatch, "Patrick Melrose"; Hugh Grant, "A Very English Scandal". Though Elisabeth Moss picked up a nomination in the latter category this time around, the show was shut out of the best drama category. Previously, Oh starred as Dr. Cristina Yang on ABC's "Grey's Anatomy", for which she also received five Emmy nominations.

Central Intelligence Agency chief Haspel to brief Senate on Khashoggi killing
Tuesday's briefing comes as the Senate weighs punishing the longtime Middle East ally over the killing. It was shown to the jury during Guzman's trial there and filed as evidence by the US government.

This nomination is a big deal for Marvel, making it the first Best Picture nod for any of the company's 20 films.

The Golden Globes had aired without a host for decades until NBC in 2010 tapped Ricky Gervais for the job.

HBO's wearying penchant for dark dramas only yielded nominations for the peculiar murder mystery "Sharp Objects" (series, Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson) and one nomination for "Westworld" (Emmy victor Thandie Newton). While Oh does not appear to have any past award show hosting credits, Samberg has hosted both the Independent Spirit Awards and the Emmys.

Samberg was the obvious choice to host the awards. And I know you are dying to tweet about it. Its own Golden Age has passed and now seems quaintly irrelevant. So how many fewer people will watch the Globes this year?

We've compiled a list of some of the snubs that we were shocked by this morning!
