Black Panther, Crazy Rich Asians, A Star is Born and The Favourite are among the films expected to land nominations, while The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Killing Eve, The Handmaid's Tale and The Good Place are considered front-runners in the television/streaming categories. Additionally, Samberg, who has plenty of live TV experience from his years on "Saturday Night Live", has hosted major awards shows before - he emceed the 2015 Primetime Emmys for Fox, where "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" aired for five seasons., as well as the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards. This year, she became the first actress of Asian ethnicity to receive an Emmy nomination for drama series lead, for Killing Eve.

The HFPA changed the title of the honorary position previous year from Miss Golden Globe to Golden Globe Ambassador, seeking to make the position more gender-neutral. The Golden Globes led NBC to the nightlong win in total viewers despite National Football League playoff competition. NBC has hosted the Globes broadcast for the last 23 years.
