Golden Globe Awards

Hollywood stars send support to Australia during Golden Globe award speeches

Crowe was a winner, but chose not to attend the awards show in Beverly Hills today.

The A-List audience at the Beverly Hilton was told Crowe, who has a property near Coffs Harbour, remained in Australia to protect his family from the bushfires.

He sent a hard-hitting speech, read by Jennifer Aniston, declaring the fires a result of climate change.

"Make no mistake the tragedy unfolding in Australia is climate change based," Crowe wrote.

British stars nominated for Golden Globe awards

Waller-Bridge is up for a lead actress prize for Fleabag, while her Irish co-star Andrew Scott is also nominated.

Marriage Story, a Netflix production, is the most nominated film, having received six citations in all.

The Irishman, another Netflix film, and Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, have five nominations each.

The Crown, Chernobyl and US crime thriller Unbelievable lead the way on the TV side of things, having received four nominations apiece.

Hollywood prepares for Golden Globe Awards

Leading the nominations this year is Vice - a satirical biopic of former US Vice-President Dick Cheney - which has six.

A Star Is Born, which stars Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, has five nods, as do The Favourite and Green Book.

Mary Poppins Returns and Spike Lee's BlackkKlansman have four apiece.

Let's hope A Star Is Born wins something, if only so Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper can recreate the film's excruciating award ceremony scene live on stage.
