Jewish talent was recognized on camera and behind the scenes in the nominees for the Hollywood Foreign Press’ 2019 Golden Globe Awards.

On the movie side, supporting actor Timothée Chalamet received a nomination for his portrayal of a drug-addicted teenager in “Beautiful Boy,”; and in the best original score category, composers Justin Hurwitz and Marc Shaiman were honored for their music for “First Man” and “Mary Poppins Returns,” respectively.

In television, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “The Kominsky Method” were nominated for best television series—musical or comedy. Actors Alex Borstein from “Maisel” and “Kominsky’s” Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin received nominations for acting. Debra Messing (“Will & Grace”), Sasha Baron Cohen (“Who Is America?”) and Henry Winkler (“Barry”) were also singled out. Producer-director Ben Stiller’s “Escape From Dannemora” is in the running for the award for best limited series or TV movie.

Several non-Jewish actors were nominated for their Jewish roles, including Melissa McCarthy as Lee Israel in “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” Adam Driver as Flip Zimmerman in “Blackkklansman,” and Rachel Brosnahan, who portrays the titular “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”

Hosted by Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh, the Golden Globes will be handed out Jan. 6 on NBC. Follow Jewish Journal for live red carpet coverage.
