Other notable nominations went to Billy Porter — who recently became the first openly gay black man to win an Emmy Award — for best performance by an actor for the TV show “Pose,” Jennifer Lopez for her role as the scamming stripper Ramona in “Hustlers” and Awkwafina, who received her first nomination for her role in “The Farewell.”

Comedian Ricky Gervais is returning for the fifth time to host the awards.

Gervais has long been a divisive Golden Globes host, routinely under fire for his scathing jokes that poke jabs at celebrities in attendance at the show and at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which is behind the annual awards show.

The comedian first hosted the Globes in 2010, later returning for two consecutive years before handing off hosting duties to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. He last hosted the awards in 2016.
