The 2019 Golden Globe nominations were announced on Thursday, December 6, highlighting the best in film and television over the past year.

Ted Danson: The Good Place finally found a well-earned a spot in the Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy category, and star Kristen Bell nabbed herself a place in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy category, but unfortunately, and surprisingly, the dazzling Ted Danson was left out of the race for best actor.

Maniac: Emma Stone earned a best supporting actress nomination for the period drama The Favourite, but she was excluded for what many saw as an outstanding performance in Netflix's Maniac. The show was also shut out of the limited series category. (Photo via Michele K. Short/Netflix)
Atlanta: Donald Glover earned a nomination in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Musical, or Comedy category, but Atlanta season 2 was shut out of the comedy series category, and costar Brian Tyree Henry, AKA Alfred "Paper Boi" Miles, was omitted from the supporting actor race.

Succession: The word-of-mouth hit HBO dramedy is due for an awards show breakout — but it won't happen at the 2019 Globes. Only Kieran Culkin earned a (well-deserved) supporting actor nomination for the compelling limited series. (Photo via Craig Blankenhorn/HBO)
Issa Rae: After back-to-back nominations for Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series, Musical or Comedy — and despite shining in season 3 — the Insecure star missed out on a third consecutive nod this year. (Photo via Merie W. Wallace/HBO)
This Is Us: The NBC tearjerker has had strong representation at the Globes two years in a row, and even nabbed a win for Sterling K. Brown in 2018, but season 3 was a no-show on the HFPA's list of nominees. (Photo via NBCUniversal)
Patrick Melrose: The Showtime series was heavily favored for a nod in the limited series category, but other than an acting nom for star Benedict Cumberbatch, the show came up short. (Photo via Justin Downing/Showtime)
Widows: Steve McQueen's action drama seemed poised to deliver, at the very least, a best actress nomination for star Viola Davis, but it was shut out across the board. (Photo via Merrick Morton/Twentieth Century Fox)
Mary Queen of Scots: Despite early awards show buzz around the historical drama, Mary Queen of Scots had a quiet start to the season with no noms for the film or its stars Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie. (Photo via Liam Daniel/Focus Features)
If Beale Street Could Talk: Barry Jenkins' latest drama did earn nominations in several top categories, including Best Motion Picture, Drama, but Jenkins himself was snubbed in the best director race, and Nicholas Britell's absence from the best original score category is a notable upset.

A Quiet Place: Early awards season chatter had John Krasinski in the best director race, and Emily Blunt among the contenders for best actress, but A Quiet Place's only nomination at the Globes was for best original score. Perhaps the unconventional horror movie is too outside the awards institution's comfort zone after all. (Photo via Jonny Cournoyer/Paramount Pictures)
First Man: Claire Foy earned a nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture, but otherwise, Damien Chazelle's Buzz Armstrong biopic was shut out — meaning no best actor nod for Ryan Gosling as the famous astronaut.

The Hate U Give: The powerful, timely film and its star, Amandla Stenberg, were sadly shut out at this year's Globes. (Photo via Erika Doss/Twentieth Century Fox)
The Haunting of Hill House: Netflix's surprise hit horror series didn't receive a single nomination, despite wide critical acclaim for both the show itself and the performances of its cast. (Photo via Steve Dietl/Netflix)
Your relationship with your finances is one of the most important relationships you'll ever have, and you can't avoid it. That said, for many of us, the pandemic only added to our financial stress. If you find yourself feeling frazzled, just remember that financial insecurity isn't a net-worth issue — it's a mindset issue. And, we happen to have plenty of advice on how to turn your money mindset around so you can take charge of your funds once and for all.
To start, feeling secure begins with a strong foundation, and there's no better time than now to get started stacking the bricks. It's easy to get swept up in the January "new year, new me" mentality, but really? Any time is the right time to get yourself in order. You don't need to wait for a new year, a new moon, the right moment, or a sign from above. You don't even have to start on the first day of the month — you just need to start.

Get the most from your money
Did you know that the money you park in a savings account can lose value? Harsh, but true. If your money isn't earning interest that's on pace with inflation it will actually be worth less to you in the future. And if the bank charges fees? Forget about it. Make sure you're earning the interest you deserve and come out on top. NerdWallet has researched dozens of financial institutions to help consumers find the best options. The hard work has already been done for you, so you can just select the account that works best for you and your nest egg.
Keep an eye on everything, securely
Once everything is set up, tracking and managing your finances is what will keep the money machine running smoothly. You can create an account either through the site or the app and link your bank accounts, then keep tabs on all your finances in one place. Get a clear picture of your saving and spending, get insights into how to master your money, and even build your credit score all in one place.
Get extra credit points
Do you have the best credit card for your lifestyle? Some cards give cash back on every purchase, ones with travel perks, and ones that charge way less interest than you're paying now. NerdWallet takes the guesswork out of choosing the right credit card with simple side-by-side comparisons of different credit cards so that you feel confident choosing the right one. Whatever you want to do, NerdWallet can help you find the best credit card to get it done.
Know your options for settling down
Mortgage rates are pretty low and it looks like they're going to stay that way for awhile, so buying a home might be the move sooner than you think. But there's so much more to a mortgage than just the interest rate! To help you choose a mortgage lender, NerdWallet has in-depth reviews on multiple lenders in a mixture of categories so you get the home loan with the mortgage rate, term, and fees that's right for you.
Settle an old score
NerdWallet helps you monitor your credit score for free and helps you see how little things (like raising the limit on your credit card or paying your bills on time) can increase your score. NerdWallet partners with TransUnion® to provide your VantageScore® 3.0, based on information in your TransUnion® credit report. Your score and credit report information are updated weekly. But that's not even close to all:
- They provide you with tips from experts on how you could build or optimize your credit score
- You'll get a detailed look at your credit score and all the factors that go into it—your payment history, credit utilization, the age and type of accounts, balances, and any recent inquiries
- The credit simulator tool gives you an idea of how your credit score would change if you applied for a new credit card, closed your oldest credit card, or got a new auto loan
- You also get free, unlimited access to your credit report
When it comes to managing your money, safe and reliable is where it's at. Establishing a healthy relationship with your finances begins when you take control and practice habits that build wealth. Signing up just takes a few minutes. Set your intentions to build a solid financial foundation, it will only strengthen your relationship with your finances.
