Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg will share host duties at the Golden Globe Awards. Golden Globes-nominated movies now available on FandangoNow are "Black Panther", "BlacKkKlansman", "Crazy Rich Asians", "Isle of Dogs", "Incredibles 2", "Eighth Grade" (for actress Elsie Fisher), "Tully" (for actress Charlize Theron) and "A Quiet Place" (for music score). "A Star Is Born", "Green Book" and "The Favourite" trailed close behind with five nominations each.

WATCH ABOVE for our breakdown as showbiz sultans Mark Daniell and Jane Stevenson give us their hot take on the ceremony that will be co-hosted by Canuck Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg. She will also be the first Canadian to host the Globes.

This year's Golden Globes hosts are Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh. Samberg won two Globes in 2014 for "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" as a producer for best television series - musical or comedy, and best actor in a television series - musical or comedy.

"Deadpool" is the only other superhero to break into the best picture categories at the Golden Globes and was nominated for best motion picture, musical or comedy in 2016 with its star Ryan Reynolds also getting a nod. And since the Golden Globes span both TV and film, there's double the potential for outrage over perceived snubs or the inclusion of seeming outliers.

In addition to announcing which films and television shows will vie for its year-end awards, the HFPA has introduced a new lifetime achievement accolade aimed at recognizing "the highest level of achievement in the medium" of television, per HFPA president Meher Tatna during the nominations announcement. Seth Meyers hosted the ceremony in 2018.

Black Panther wasn't the only hero recognized this morning. The Marvel movie was critically acclaimed, but not everyone believed it would be a contender for major awards.

Gay conversion film Boy Erased missed out on a nomination for best drama, but has been recognised for best original song in a film for "Revelation".

Netflix's best chance at a prestige prize comes with the British production "Bodyguard," which was nominated for best drama series and its blazing star performance by "Game of Thrones" graduate Richard Madden as a veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder who is assigned to protect a high-ranking government officer.
