2019 is looking to be another stellar year for BBC America‘s very own Sandra Oh, star of the groundbreaking Killing Eve, with her being nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series/Drama. Not only great, but busy, because she will also be co-hosting the 76th Annual awards ceremony with SNL alum Andy Samberg.
It’s not just Oh who is being recognized, but the entire show has received a nod, with Killing Eve being nominated for Best Television Series – Drama.
We could stop there with this BBCA breaking news, but, there are some other shows that have been nominated (we suppose<– insert winky face), including BBC’s The Bodyguard, which is going up against KE in the Best Drama category.
The Americans, Homecoming and Pose, round out the nominations for Best Television Series – Drama category.
Another standout Brit-pick is A Very English Scandal, starring Hugh Grant and Ben Whishaw, which received three nominations, including Best Television Limited Series, Best Performance by An Actor in a Limited Series (Hugh Grant) and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Limited Series (Ben Whishaw).
In addition to TV, movies on the “Best” list include Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman, Bohemian Rhapsody, If Beale Street Could Talk, and A Star is Born.
You will most likely know a lot of the A-list names on this roster of noms, like Glenn Close for The Wife, Benedict Cumberbatch for Patrick Melrose, Nicole Kidman for Destroyer, Mahershala Ali for Green Book, Kieran Culkin for Succession, Thandie Newton for Westworld and Henry Winkler for Barry.
The above is just a sampling, you can find the entire list of nominations over at Variety.
We should point out, this is only the second time, in the 76 years of the Golden Globes, that a duo is hosting, with the first set of presenters being Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who hosted three ceremonies between 2013 and 2018.
Earlier this year, Oh and Samberg presented the award for Directing a Comedy Series at the 70th Annual Emmy Awards. The two had so much fun, and on-screen chemistry, that now they’re at it again, running…the entire show as co-hosts.
Go, Sandra Oh! Go, Killing Eve! Can you tell who we’re cheering for?? What about you!?Read More
