Stephan James Golden Globes

Scarborough’s Stephan James scores Golden Globe nomination

Two Toronto-born talents will be taking the stage at 2019's Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles... if they win what they've been nominated for, that is.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the full list of nominees for the 76th annual Golden Globes this morning, exactly one month ahead of the televised awards show on January 6.

Scarborough-born TV actor and fast-rising film star Stephan James was nominated in the category of Best Actor, TV Series, Drama, for his role in Amazon's psychological thriller Homecoming, which also stars Julia Roberts and Bobby Cannavale.

The 24-year-old performer had previously won a Canadian Screen Award for his starring role in the 2016 Jesse Owens biopic Race, and got tongues wagging at TIFF earlier this year with his turn in Barry Jenkins' critically-acclaimed If Beale Street Could Talk.

He was also on Degrassi at one point, which is cooler than any number of award nominations—even 35 of them for Grammys.

Comedic superstar Jim Carrey, who is from Toronto, also landed a best actor nomination for his comedic Amazon series Kidding.

Fellow Ontarian Sandra Oh is both nominated for and hosting this year's Golden Globes ceremony in January, which is neat, and Elizabeth Moss has been nominated in the category of best actress for her work in The Handmaid's Tale, much of which was filmed here in Toronto.
