The Latest: Richard Madden wins best TV drama actor Globe

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — The Latest on the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards, being presented live Sunday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California (all times local):

5:30 p.m.

Richard Madden has won the Golden Globe for best TV drama actor for his role in “Bodyguard.”

It’s the first Golden Globe and first nomination for Madden, the Scottish actor best known for playing Robb Stark on “Game of Thrones.” In the BBC and Netflix thriller “Bodyguard” he plays a British veteran assigned to guard a government official.


5:25 p.m.

Golden Globes co-host Sandra Oh’s opening monologue shifted from jokes to real emotions when she talked about the show’s diverse set of nominees from films including “Crazy Rich Asians.” 

Oh teared up next to co-host Andy Samberg during the Globes opening bit on Sunday as she talked about saying yes to hosting despite her fear.

She said she “wanted to be here to look out on this audience and witness this moment of change.”

Oh said she’s not fooling herself, and next year could be back to the status quo. 

But right now, she said, looking to various members of the audience, “the moment is real. Because I see you. And I see you. All these faces of change. And now so will everyone else.” 


5:15 p.m.

“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” is the winner of the best animated film Golden Globe Award.

The film that features alternate spider heroes from different dimensions features the voices of Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld and Mahershala Ali. It’s the first animation Golden Globe for Sony Pictures.

Producer Phil Lord accepted the award and says it felt like an “alternate universe” like those in the movie.


5:10 p.m.

Michael Douglas has won the Golden Globe for best TV comedy actor for his role in “The Kominsky Method.”

Douglas received the first award of the night from Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. 

It’s the third Golden Globe Award in nine nominations for the 74-year-old Douglas. He previously won in 2014 for playing Liberace in “Behind the Candelabra” and in 1988 for playing Gordon Gekko in “Wall Street.” He also has received the Cecil B. DeMille Award from the Golden Globes in 2004.

Douglas thanked Chuck Lorre, who created the Netflix series focusing on his character, an aging acting coach and his close friendship with his agent, played by Alan Arkin. He also raised his award and gave a shout-out to his 102-year-old father, Kirk Douglas.


5:05 p.m.

Hosts Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh have started the Golden Globe Awards with a shot at the still hostless Academy Awards

Samberg said in the show’s opening Sunday night that they are “going to have some fun, give out some awards, and one lucky audience member is going to get to host the Oscars!”

Oh said the unlikely pairing of her and Samberg came because they’re “the only two people left in Hollywood who haven’t gotten in trouble for saying something offensive.”

Oh is also a nominee Sunday for her role in the TV drama “Killing Eve.”

The hosts also tamely roasted attendees, praising their talents instead of telling off-color jokes.


4:55 p.m.

The suspense builds as the Golden Globes telecast prepared to go live.

The narrow entry to the ballroom floor became clogged with fashionably late arrivals, including Timothee Chalamet, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban. Halle Berry, Saoirse Ronan, Antonio Banderas arrived as voiced boomed over the loudspeaker: “Ladies and gentlemen, we’re are seven minutes away from officially live to air. Please take your seats.”

Would they make it in time? Lady Gaga’s journey to her front-row table had been a long one as admirers stopped her for hugs and air kisses.

Ben Stiller joked Sunday on the Golden Globes red carpet that the last time he was nominated for an award was in 2002 for a Teen Choice Award, which isn’t entirely true. He was nominated for choice hissy fit and choice actor that year for “Zoolander,” but he also has at least 10 other Teen Choice nominations since.

But he’s never been nominated for a Golden Globe before, until this year for his show “Escape at Dannemora,” which he produces and directs. The prison series which airs on Showtime is up for best television limited series Sunday night. It’s been a passion project of his for two years.

Stiller says he likes that with television the audience can grow from week to week.

He doesn’t know yet if he’ll be returning to the big screen anytime soon, though.

Stiller says he’s “going to take a little time and figure it out.”

4:15 p.m.

The Golden Globes redefine fast food.

A gourmet dinner awaits each guest, but not for long. The waiters have about an hour to serve three courses and then whisk the dishes away, so meal time is done by show time.

Stars who linger for photographers on the red carpet are missing the sweet potato vichyssoise.

The soup went uneaten at the “A Star is Born” table. But Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper could still make it in for the Chilean sea bass course or the pistachio cream cheese cake.

But celebrities aren’t left high and dry: the wine and Champagne will keep flowing, and there are high-end snacks and cocktails available in a bar area.

4 p.m.

One year after actresses made a major statement about equality at the Golden Globe Awards, Alyssa Milano says that a lot has changed but they still have a long way to go.

Milano helped make #MeToo a viral phenomenon following the initial reports about Harvey Weinstein in Oct. 2017.

She says that in the past year, a “really wonderful sisterhood has formed” and that they’re “really finding our voice through our pain and our collective pain.”

But she added that she’s more concerned with women in underseen industries — farmworkers, those in the military, hotel employees — than those walking the red carpet alongside her.

3:45 p.m.

The last time “Crazy Rich Asians” director Jon M. Chu was at the Golden Globes was in 2011 as Justin Bieber’s plus one. This year is a little different, to say the least.

Chu is attending Sunday armed with his own invitation and with a film that’s been nominated for best picture in the musical or comedy category.

Chu says “It is truly a landmark year” noting the nominations for films like his and “Black Panther.”

He added: “Look at this carpet! It looks different!”

Chu was wearing a black and gold suit made by Givenchy. He said he’s usually in sweats and a ball cap but figured he should represent at the Globes.

3:30 p.m.

To say “Crazy Rich Asians” star Michelle Yeoh is excited to be at the Golden Globes this year is a bit of an understatement.

Yeoh says it’s her first time at the awards show, and that being there Sunday, “means so much” despite having to wait a “very long time” to get the chance.

She says, “It tells us that we are part of a community.”

“Crazy Rich Asians” is nominated for two Globes including best actress for Constance Wu and best musical or comedy film.

She’s looking forward to seeing what Sandra Oh has in store as co-host of the ceremony tonight, but Yeoh is also looking to the future. She has a suggestion for the film academy about who should host the Oscars this year: her co-star Ken Jeong.

“Why not,” Yeoh asked. “I’m sure he can sing and dance! I’m putting it out there.”

3:05 p.m.

Standing on the red carpet just a few hours before the Golden Globe Awards begin Sunday, “Eighth Grade” star and best actress nominee Elsie Fisher says that she’s still in shock that she was nominated.

The 15-year-old actress is a first-time nominee and is sporting a red velvet suit by Kenzo. She says, “It’s so comfortable but it looks great,” which she laughed were her two requirements.

Fisher says she’d love to meet Lady Gaga at the awards Sunday, but that afterward she has some math homework to look forward to.

“Eighth Grade” writer-director Bo Burnham, standing beside his star, assured her that “no one here is good at math. You’re in good company.”

2:25 p.m.

The red carpet is a flurry of activity as everyone prepares for the deluge of stars, and, thankfully not rain, at the 76th Golden Globe Awards Sunday.

With temperatures a little chilly and the red carpet still a little soggy from the rains the night before, the crowd is a little more bundled up than usual, especially in the fan bleachers where many are wrapped in coats, scarves and hats.

How the weather might affect Sunday’s fashions is yet to be seen, but one thing is certain: There will be no coordinated fashion statements like last year’s black dresses in support of #MeToo and Time’s Up. There may, however be some celebrities sporting ribbons in support of safe, fair and dignified workplaces on behalf of Time’s Up equality efforts.

3 a.m.

Lady Gaga is poised to win not one, but two awards when the 76th annual Golden Globes get underway Sunday night.

The live broadcast from Beverly Hills, California, will begin on NBC at 8 p.m. EST following an hour of red-carpet coverage. Favored among movie nominees is Bradley Cooper’s Oscar front-runner “A Star Is Born.” It’s expected to win best picture, drama, best actress for Lady Gaga and best song for Gaga’s “Shallow.”

Awards may also be in store for Yorgos Lanthimos’ period romp “The Favourite,” the Amazon comedy series “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and Ryan Murphy’s anthology series “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.”

Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh will host. Oh, the star of the drama series “Killing Eve,” is also a nominee.
