Golden Globes announce new lifetime achievement category for television

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.

"Honorees [will be] selected based on outstanding accomplishments as well as their impact and influence that their television career has had on industry and audiences", Tatna continued, adding that the honor will be the HFPA's first special achievement award since the inauguration of the DeMille award in 1952. That was down slightly from the 2017 show to a six-year demo low, but still ranked as the most watched awards show since the Oscars.

It was recently announced that 2019 Golden Globes will be hosted by Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg, with the news eliciting excitement among social media users.

Granted, the results of awards balloting can be largely symbolic, and are seldom the best way to measure progress.

"Vice" director Adam McKay, who was also nominated, described the film as "an awesome portrayal of power". Additionally, Samberg, who has plenty of live TV experience from his years on "Saturday Night Live", has hosted major awards shows before - he emceed the 2015 Primetime Emmys for Fox, where "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" aired for five seasons., as well as the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards. NBC has hosted the Globes broadcast for the last 23 years.

Michael B. Jordan had a banner year, both critically and at the box office, with his tour de force supporting performance in "Black Panther", and then reprising his role as Adonis Creed in "Creed II".

In the drama category, the competition includes two movies that explore racial injustice: If Beale Street Could Talk, and BlacKkKlansman.

When it comes to television the HFPA has tended to favour the new, but many were surprised to see "Atlanta" left off the list for best television series, musical or comedy, which included such unexpected choices as "Kidding" and "The Kominsky Method". On the TV front, This Is Us was completely ignored.

Samberg and Oh, who earlier this year became the first woman of Asian descent to be nominated for a lead drama actress Emmy, were announced as hosts a day after African-American comedian Kevin Hart was named as a first-time host of the 2019 Academy Awards ceremony. So were Better Call Saul, Black-ish, Maniac, and The Little Drummer Girl.

Oh will be the first person of colour ever to host the event. Streisand is the only one to win, for Yentl in 1984.
