Huge NFL lead-in no boon for Golden Globe ratings

Oh won a Golden Globe for her role in BBC America series 'Killing Eve'

The 76th Golden Globe Awards went down in Beverly Hills Sunday night, hosted by Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh.

While results were a mixed bag-total viewers dipped 2 percent from a year-ago, while the demo improved 4 percent versus the 2018 show-the Globes by far has been TV's most stable awards show franchise. Many race-based laws were still in place at that time. And Eddie Redmayne won both a Golden Globe and an Academy Award in 2015 for The Theory of Everything.

Among the biggest-spending brands that used Sunday night's Globes as a marketing springboard were Walmart, Chevrolet, Amazon Prime Video, L'Oreal Paris, Discover Card, Verizon, HBO, McDonald's, Pepsi and T-Mobile.

Despite being fired, Singer is still the credited director on the film, making for an awkward situation as the movie's cast and crew danced around his name while taking their victory lap after the film won Best Motion Picture - Drama.

Arsenal beats Fulham 4-1, keeps in touch with EPL's top 4
The French forward is still finding it hard to finish 90 minutes and the Arsenal legend has a message for Unai Emery . The performance saw Arsenal eager to wipe away last Saturday's 5-1 bashing by Liverpool at Anfield.

Lady Gaga is next in the running at 4/1 for her role in A Star is Born.

Veteran actress Julia Roberts, a frequent suit-wearer on the red carpet, chose black trousers and a tan top for the awards, in which she scored her first nomination for a television role for "Homecoming".

"Killing Eve" star and co-host of the ceremony Sandra Oh donned a long white gown, while People magazine's "sexiest man alive" Idris Elba chose a dark green and black tuxedo.

Last year, Oh and Samberg teamed up when they presented the Emmy Award for best director of a comedy, which went to Amy Sherman-Palladino of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel". That left Netflix's Oscar hopeful, Alfonso Cuaron's memory-drenched masterwork "Roma" out of the top category.

New US politician speaks her mind on Trump
The op-ed, like Tlaib's celebratory speech , demands Trump's impeachment. "I think President Trump has met his match", she said. There has been some discussion in Trump's orbit about how to deal with a possible impeachment effort.

"This film would not have been possible without the specific colors that made me who I am", said Cuaron.

Olivia Colman won best actress in a comedy/musical for her part as Queen Anne in "The Favourite". Richard Madden, the breakout star of the terrorism suspense series "Bodyguard", won best actor in a drama series.

Burnett said sometimes she catches herself wishing she were young so she could do it all over again, but stops herself when she realizes that today's TV producers would never finance a show like hers, with its 28-piece live orchestra, 12 dancers and 65 costumes a week.
