Golden Flamingo Nominations 2019

NEW YORK – As another year in cinema has concluded, it’s time again for the grandest of honors in film, the Golden Flamingos. Early this morning, the nomination announcements got off to a rough start when the scheduled presenters, Taraji P. Henson and Ray Romano, failed to show up for the broadcast. Nevertheless, the many nominations were revealed in a phone size digital screen in Times Square.

Reactions online were mixed. Many ‘Flamingo purists’ tweeted their outrage concerning the addition of several new categories. While there were some positive tweets celebrating the much deserved nominations for Bradley Cooper (Directing for A Star is Born) and Horatio the Racing Duck (Animal Non-Speaking for The Favourite).

This year’s show will once again air during the commercials of the Oscars, (the most valuable time in the telecast). Thanks to the outcry from past Golden Flamingo winners and fans alike, the Oscars backed off from airing some of the biggest awards simultaneously as the flamingos.

With the show in rehearsals, sources close to the producers are reporting that this year there will be no host. After Betty White was announced as host, a bevy of past offensive tweets resurfaced. Coupled with the trending hashtag #GoldenFlamingosSoWhite, the producers had no choice but to move in a different direction. Despite Ellen DeGeneres’s many phone calls in support of the comedian Kevin Hart getting the gig after he walked away from hosting the Oscars, the Golden Flamingos ultimately decided to go without a host.

Without further ado, here are the nominees:
