Lack of representation for minorities and women was yet again a hot button issue.
A few nominations sparked immense joy and the snubs, of course, induced real outrage. As usual, the general consensus was that the nominees were not as diverse as they could have been: not enough women in the writing, directing and producing categories, and not enough minorities in all categories.
That said, two stand-out films that received high praise both from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and Twitter were "Black Panther" and "Blakkklansman." Both movies received nods in the Best Motion Picture category, making "Black Panther" the second superhero movie to be nominated for Best Motion Picture.
Although Asians have been historically vastly underrepresented in American award shows, they got some love Thursday morning! "Crazy Rich Asians" received two noms: Best Motion Picture for Comedy or Musical and Best Actress for Constance Wu.
What's more? Sandra Oh snatched a nod for her role in "Killing Eve" and she'll also be co-hosting the event, live on Jan 6.
In addition to diversity, there was also lots of Twitter chatter about "A Star Is Born." The Lady Gaga stans were in full force. Bradley Cooper got showered in love, too.
So what else were people peeved about? Notably, the lack of many horror flicks and horror flick actresses, including "A Quiet Place," "Hereditary," "Suspiria," "Widows" (although that's more action/heist) and Toni Collette.
Here's everything the Twitterverse was freaking out over after the 2019 Golden Globe nominations were announced.
Diversity: Yay or Nay?
Some people were pleased with the amount of diversity represented by this year's nominees. Others, felt it was still not enough.
It's great to see some diverse styles of animation in the category for Best Motion Picture – Animated. My money's on #Incredibles2, but #Mirai is gorgeous and underrated too. #GoldenGlobes pic.twitter.com/PcHtAnwEa3— Sleighvid Opie 🎄 (@DavidOpie) December 6, 2018

Lots of Love for 'Black Panther' and 'Blakkklansman'
Very happy about: everything Black Panther, Blackkklansman, Sharp Objects, my love Kristen Bell (!), Richard Madden, Sam Rockwell. #GoldenGlobes— Elien (@mrspancakes) December 6, 2018
Black Panther was nominated for WHAT #GoldenGlobes— New Or Lean (@callmeWise) December 6, 2018
If the Best Picture awards at the #GoldenGlobes end up going to both BlacKkKlansman and Green Book in the same evening, that'd be peak Golden Globes.— Kevin Klawitter (@KevinKlawitter) December 6, 2018
'Crazy Rich Asians' and Constance Wu and Sandra Oh ... Oh, My!

Constance Wu is going to the #GoldenGlobes as a lead actress nominee and while there, she will see another Asian woman lead actress nominee, Sandra Oh, host the entire thing. Visibility!— Elaine L. (@LaineyGossip) December 6, 2018
"We were literally screaming around the house. I'm so excited for her." — @jonmchu just now on @ConstanceWu's #GoldenGlobe nom for #CrazyRichAsians— Shirley Li (@shirklesxp) December 6, 2018

'A Star Is Born' Hype
One fan even pointed out that the 2018 remake of "A Star Is Born" scored the same number of noms as the 1976 version (it won all five). However, the Twitter user was wrong about it being nominated in the same categories -- they were almost exactly identical except for one category, the latest iteration garnered a Best Director nod while the 1976 remake was acknowledged in the Best Original Score category.
A Star is Born absolutely smashed the #GoldenGlobes nominations 🙌🏽🙌🏽— Ellis Rose Crawshaw (@ellisrosec) December 6, 2018
Lady Gaga Stans Rejoice
Another Best Actress for Gaga in the bag. #GoldenGlobes— Kiev ⭐ (@Barbaric_K) December 6, 2018
Gaga is nominated!! #GoldenGlobes I hope she wins and give her how 99 people in didn’t believe in her in the room out of 100 people.— IF†I (@LostAlien666) December 6, 2018
who would've thought back in 2008-2013 that the crazy satanic wh*re since that's how you called lady gaga would be nominated for best actress at the #GoldenGlobes— gong (@gagasdarksin) December 6, 2018
The Horror Over 2018's Best Horror Movies
I don't care what anyone says. #ToniCollette was robbed of a nomination for Best Actress. She outshone every single one of those nominees in that dinner scene alone. #Hereditary #GoldenGlobes #horror pic.twitter.com/lY1GRjVB2x— Sleighvid Opie 🎄 (@DavidOpie) December 6, 2018
Did Horror films this year get snubbed? #GoldenGlobes my eyes didn't come across. #AQuietPlace #Hereditary. i really thought #Upgrade will be the #ExMachina of this year. It is such a brilliant film. #Oscars2019 Do your job on nominating this one please. Thanks— Mark Law (@Megaprikibalz) December 6, 2018
A Quiet Place should have had more nominations #GoldenGlobes— anna 🏳️🌈 (@anistonblunt) December 6, 2018
Tully and A Quiet Place secretly gained momentum despite being released early in the year. 😂 #GoldenGlobes— Iggy (@LawrenceMaranon) December 6, 2018
So many amazing movies I saw this year that didn't get a single nomination: Be it Suspiria, A Prayer Before Dawn, You Were Never Really Here or Mid90s. #GoldenGlobes— SoulfulChris (@SoulfulChris) December 6, 2018
Bonus! Twitter's Class Clown
There's always that one guy who makes that overplayed joke about President Donald Trump not getting nominated in the Dramedy category, but it never gets old, so we included it below.
