US Golden Globe Awards provide golden showcase for Asians

Last year, the 2018 Golden Globe Awards telecast averaged a 5.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 19 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research, putting it ahead of every show on television from the previous 10 months in total viewers, since the prior year's Academy Awards.

That's not to say smaller films won't get their due: Other strong contenders this year include Cuarón's Roma; Yorgos Lanthimos' twisted period drama The Favourite; Peter Farrelly's dramedy Green Book, and Adam McKay's satire Vice, the Dick Cheney biopic that has critics wildly divided. "Sometimes he goes too far, and some people love it and some people are having a hard time with it", said Gray.

Despite being musicals, both "A Star is Born" and "Bohemian Rhapsody", starring Rami Malek as the late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, will compete in the more prestigious best movie drama category.

The trio will also be joined by Allison Janney, Ben Stiller, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman and Danai Gurira.

Ford is a recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille award as well as a four-time Golden Globes nominee, mostly recently in 1995 for "Sabrina".
