"Killing Eve" star Sandra Oh and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" star Andy Samberg will co-host tonight's show.

Writer Sady Doyle tweeted: "Glad for the folks who felt "Green Book" would be best served by the optics of three middle-aged, heavy-set white guys wearily accepting their award for the movie about racism".

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. "We have to say I can do that and I should be allowed to do that".

"Thank you to Freddie Mercury for giving me the joy of a lifetime", said Malek.

Burnett described how she first fell in love with movies when she would see as many as eight a week with her grandmother, who raised her.

Cooper is at 3/1 to win the Best Actor Oscar at the awards ceremony on February 25.

Oh won best performance by an actress in a drama television series for her role in the BBC's Killing Eve, becoming the first Asian woman to take home the award in nearly 40 years, the Independent also notes.

Phillies to have face-to-face meeting with Harper
It will be interesting to see whether or not the Sox land him, knowing that they have also been "all-in" on Harper as well. Meanwhile, according to NBC Sports Philadelphia , the Nationals are not the only team pursuing Harper seriously.

Kawhi Leonard wishes for different end to Spurs tenure
Leonard spent seven seasons with the Spurs and won Finals MVP in 2014 when he helped guide the team to its fifth championship. At 27 and just entering his prime, it's reasonable to think his ceiling is even higher than what we've seen.

Wounded City ready to fight Liverpool, insists Kompany
Tottenham Hotspur sit nestled in second having played a game extra than either of the other two teams. "They've won the title". The benefit of the 4-3-3, though, is that Mohamed Salah could play wide-right, against City's zone of weakness.

Preliminary figures from Nielsen show that Sunday night's Golden Globes were watched by 18.6 million viewers, a slight drop from the 19.1 million that tuned in a year ago.

Also receiving multiple awards was "Roma", Alfonso Cuaron's affectionate look at his childhood in Mexico City, which won for best foreign film and best director.

The Favourite also only picked up one win, despite landing five nods, with success for Olivia Colman in the best actress in a comedy or musical category. Richard Madden, the breakout star of the terrorism suspense series "Bodyguard", won best actor in a drama series. It became one of the most honoured shows in television history, averaging 30 million viewers a week and getting 25 Emmy awards. There was no mention of President Trump or the government shutdown, although the pair made jokes about identity politics and cultural appropriation. The latest Academy Awards (-16%), Grammys (-20%), Emmys (-10%), CMAs (-24%) and AMAs (-21%) were all down double digits from their respective previous installments.

But some of their comic bits felt flat, including a gag about Jim Carrey being in the wrong seat and a bit in which fake doctors swarmed the room to administer "flu shots", which left many stars looking confused.

Jeff Bridges received the Globes' honorary Cecil B. DeMille Award.

Fortunately, the awkward moment didn't appear to ruin the actor's night. The 85-year-old comic actress then gave a heartfelt speech about how TV networks would never produce a variety show like hers today because they cost too much money. Burnett finished with her trademark tug on her ear and left the stage to a standing ovation.
