«When I'm awakened by shaking and my husband's much too loud and excited voice at 5 AM, it must be a good day! I've been blessed to work with talented actors and creative teams throughout my career, but this year really takes the cake because I had the honor of working with two amazing groups of people on both Big Little Lies and The Morning Show! I can't say enough about each actor, writer, producer creator and member of the hardworking crews that brought these stories to life. Acting is my first love and it was always my dream when I began producing and started Hello Sunshine that we would create smart and compelling stories with strong female voices at the center, but to have people actually enjoy the work we do is truly all I could have hoped for! I'm grateful to the HFPA and to my partners HBO and Apple, David E. Kelly and Kerry Ehrin, Nicole, Laura, Shailene, Zoe, Meryl, Jen, Steve, Billy, Mark, Gugu, Karen, and everyone who had a hand in bringing Big Little Lies and The Morning Show to life!»

Jennifer Lopez, Best Supporting Actress for «Hustlers»

«I could not be more proud to be recognized by the HFPA! Ramona was a complicated character and it was an honor and challenge to bring her to life.

Eddie Murphy, Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy and Best Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy for «Dolemite Is My Name»

This film was sixteen years in the making, and was a true labor of love for everyone involved in its' creation.

I am beyond grateful that both audiences and critics have embraced it so enthusiastically, and I mean it from the bottom of my heart when I say that everyone who worked on the film shares in these nominations.

Awkwafina, Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy for «The Farewell»

«Just woke up to this exciting news and am incredibly honored. I am beyond grateful to the HFPA, and to be grouped with such insanely talented actresses. I grew up watching the Golden Globes every year, cheering for my favorite films and actors…it is surreal that I now get to go! Wait, I do get to go right?»

Adam Driver, Best Performance by an Actor — Drama for «Marriage Story»

«I'm incredibly honored to be among this list of actors and extremely grateful to the HFPA.

My experience with this movie has felt rare from the start because of the environment that Noah created in the script and on set, the actors and crew I got to work with, and the support that Netflix gave us along the way. A moment this is hard to describe. I can only repeat how lucky I am to be a part of this movie.»

«Good news! This must mean I'm still alive.»

Kathy Bates, Best Actress in a Supporting Role for «Richard Jewell»

«Thank you HFPA for the recognition, I am so proud of this film and it was an honor to work with Mr. Eastwood on telling this important story along with the incredible Paul, Sam, Olivia, Jon, Nina, Ian and Niko. I hope our film brings justice and peace to Richard and Bobi Jewell in telling their truth and honoring his heroism.»

Sacha Baron Cohen, Best Performance by an Actor for «The Spy»

«A heartfelt thank you to the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for this honour. I have long wanted to move away from comedy and do something uncommercial, not reliant on jokes, that few people would see — which I achieved with the The Brothers Grimsby.

I am hugely proud of The Spy and thrilled that it has been seen and embraced by audiences around the globe. I share this recognition with Eli Cohen's family and everyone who worked on The Spy.

I'd also to express my thanks to the brilliant team at Netflix and to our visionary writer/director Gidi Raff.»

«I got my parents to watch the film with me for the first time yesterday and my dad told me it was one of his favourite things I've ever done so it is doubly ace to get two wonderful tricky-to-get accolades in less than 24 hours — my dad AND the HFPA.

I cannot say enough how much this wouldn't ever have existed without Edward Norton, whose passion, enthusiasm and vision really helped push me into creating a score that I'm incredibly proud of.

I loved working with him and am thrilled to both have that work recognised by the HFPA and to be nominated for a Golden Globe alongside such an inspiring collection of fellow composers.»

Kaitlyn Dever, Best Actress in a Limited Series for «Unbelievable»

«Wow. I can't believe this!!! Thank you to the HFPA, Golden Globes for your support and nominating me for my first Golden Globe. I feel so blessed to be recognized alongside such a talented group of women.

To my fellow «Unbelievable» cast, and the extraordinary producers, congratulations! It was a team effort to bring Marie's story to the forefront and do her justice. THANK YOU to everyone who put their trust in me to portray Marie.

I'm incredibly honored and overwhelmed.»

Saoirse Ronan, Best Actress in a Drama for «Little Women»

I am eternally grateful to Greta Gerwig for her guidance and partnership, and for her fierce perseverance that brought this incredible cast together and created an environment for us to become a real family and tell this very special story.

My performance in this film belongs to Greta as much as it does myself and I share this recognition completely with her.»

To be nominated for both my performance and the song I had the privilege to co-write for the film is a testament to Harriet's enduring legacy and a celebration of her incredible story, which is long overdue.

I am grateful to the HFPA for this recognition and feel truly blessed and humbled to be included on a list of such incredible artists. To say that this is overwhelming and a dream come true is putting it lightly.

Who Is Billy Porter? Facts About the Golden Globe-Nominated Actor

Billy Porter Reacts to His Best Actor Golden Globe Nomination

  • Billy Porter is an actor, writer, and red carper superstar.
  • Most recently, he's best known for his Emmy-winning performance as Pray Tell on FX's Pose, though he's appeared in American Horror Story and Law & Order.

    In addition, he's a celebrated theater actor, having won a Tony Award for his performance in Kinky Boots.

  • And in the latest casting news, Porter will be playing the Fairy Godmother in the live-action remake of Cinderella along with Camila Cabello in the titular role.

  • At Sunday's 2020 Golden Globe Awards, the actor hit the red carpet in an Alex Vinash white tuxedo with an over-the-top train. The designer called it a gown on Instagram. He's nominated for Best Actor in a TV Series, Drama, for Pose.

Billy Porter, 50, has been all over your TV screen and Instagram feed in 2019—even if you don't immediately recognize him yet.

After nearly three decades as a professional actor in the theater world, he's emerged as a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood, both on the big screen and walking down the red carpet.

If you need an example of his talent, just take a look at his impromptu performance of «Everything's Coming Up Roses» from the musical Gypsy at the 2019 Tonys.

To borrow from slang words popular today, Porter is the definition of what it means to do the most and be extra.

This year, he made history when he became the first openly gay Black man to win an Emmy for Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his performance as Pray Tell on FX's Pose, a role that also earned him a nod at the 2020 Golden Globes. He's nominated for Best Actor in a TV Series, Drama.

At Sunday's event, Porter arrived dripping in feathers courtesy of the Alex Vinash white tuxedo that included a stunning train. «Pure love! My custom gown x @theebillyporter @goldenglobes !!!» wrote the designer on Instagram.

What's next for Porter? In what might be the most perfect casting, he just signed on to play the Fairy Godmother in an upcoming live-action Cinderella. Conceived by James Corden, the re-telling will star Camila Cabello in the titular role and Deadline reports that Broadway vet Idina Menzel will ly join as her evil stepmother. The movie is set to come out in February 2021.

He also shared at the New Yorker Festival in October, «I have a movie with Tiffany Haddish, Rose Byrne and Salma Hayek, a Boss» on the horizon, plus a new album coming out next year,» and he says he's directing an episode of Pose.

Until then, here are all the Billy Porter factoids to brush up on.

His love for theatre goes way, way back

Porter was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he attended Reizenstein Middle School and learned about the power of musical theater. Growing up, he actually thought he'd end up becoming a preacher, or be more involved in the church, the way people perceived him.

In an interview with Esquire, he explained that from a young age people gravitated toward him. “So many people felt something special—a special energy coming from me in my life early on. And it's immediately about ‘little preacher man.’ You're going to be a preacher. Because it's the only space that they understand a special energy that.»

Eventually, Porter sang in the local church and felt inspired to audition for a show singing, «Home» from The Wiz. He told W magazine, «It was 100 people in the cast and every single role was double cast. Four performances, every single role was double cast.

And when the cast list went up, everybody was double cast but me. So I got to do all four performances.

I don't know if there was something in that that gave me a clue that maybe this might be something that I could do, and be popular doing it, and not be bullied anymore.»

He studied drama at Carnegie Mellon

Porter turned to the arts as a reprieve from the trauma and abuse he suffered at home. After attending the Pittsburgh Creative and Performing Arts School, he studied drama on scholarship at Carnegie Mellon, even though he believed his path was intended elsewhere.

Speaking with Backstage about the advice his counselors gave him, he said, «I didn’t know that I was supposed to go to college.

I was , ‘I’m going to New York!’ They caught wind of that, and they pulled me by my ear: ‘You’re not going anywhere but to Carnegie Mellon to learn how to talk, because while you are the greatest singer we know, and while you dance beautifully, every time you open up your mouth, it’s a disaster.

If you learn how to act, you’ll never be work by your own choice. You will never be work because you’ll have every skill to work all the time.’ And they were right!»

In 2000, Porter moved to Los Angeles, where he attended a screenwriting program at UCLA with the hopes of going into writing and directing. He later returned to New York.

His Broadway resume is as long as the trains on his gowns.

Porter's theater career began in a 1991 run of Miss Saigon, and he later played a Teen Angel in the 1994 revival of Grease.

Upon his return to New York in 2010, he was cast as Belize in the New York Signature Theatre Company’s 20th-anniversary production of Tony Kushner’s two-part epic, Angels in America.

Three years later, he won a Tony and a Grammy for his career-defining performance in Kinky Boots, as the business-savvy drag queen Lola. He then starred alongside Audra McDonald in Shuffle Along, or the Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed in 2016.

He first met future Pose co-star MJ Rodriguez during the 2011 off-Broadway revival of Rent, where she starred as Angel and Porter was associate-directing. Rodriguez told Esquire that Porter and the show's director, Michael Greif, “were really the only ones vocal about uplifting me. I went into rehearsal mode and Billy was just , ‘Yas! Yas! Yas!’”

Alright, let's talk Porter's fashion

He caught the world's attention when he wore a floor-length Randi Rahm couture cape to the 2019 Golden Globes, where he was nominated for his role on Pose. He was being rushed through the red carpet by someone he called the “clipboard b*tch» to The Cut to make room for notables Elisabeth Moss, but the photographers took note, screaming, «Twirl the cape, Billy!»

He told People that his role on Pose has had a massive impact on his fashion identity. «I realized how gender fluid my impulses, my whole life has been. I didn’t really understand that until Pose happened,» he said.

«It kind of cracked my brain open and helped me get to a different space and understanding about myself, the dilemmas I was putting on myself even just about what I can wear, what was acceptable, what was masculine enough, what was acceptable.»

Porter broke the internet when he hosted the 2019 Oscars red carpet in a custom black velvet Christian Siriano outfit that was a fitted suit jacket and bowtie on top, matched with a voluminous gown and six-inch Rick Owens boots underneath. Glenn Close had the correct reaction:

He continued his reign as Hollywood's Most Fashionable Person (our new nickname for him) by wearing an opulent gold outfit by The Blonds along with large wings and an elaborate headpiece to the 2019 Met Gala, where he arrived escorted on a chaise by six shirtless men.

He told Esquire, «[Authenticity] is fully and truly a ministry for me … I want to minister to people who don't understand and change the trajectory of the world.»

He later stunned on the Tony Awards red carpet by wearing red and pink velvet and pink tulle—a suit with emotional resonance for Porter, as the suit was a repurposed curtain from the Broadway production of Kinky Boots created by Celestino Couture. It featured a sweeping train and 30,000 Swarovski crystals.

Porter told InStyle that his goal is to spark conversations about gender and the way we dress. «The fact that it’s 2019 and we’re still sort of having these conversations about gender, and what’s masculine and feminine.

I know for myself, the moment that I felt the most grounded and the most masculine was when I totally embraced myself and my balance of masculine and feminine,» he said.

«Putting on those heels without apologies makes me feel the most masculine I’ve ever felt and that’s the truth. That’s the conversation I’m trying to have.»

He helped shape his Pose character.

For the uninitiated, Pose follows LGBTQ ball culture in the '80s and early '90s, exploring how the HIV/AIDS crisis impacted this marginalized community as their work slowly became mainstream.

Porter was originally called in to read for a different role, but hoped for something closer to the action at the balls.

Ryan Murphy, the show's creator and executive producer, had intentions of making the mothers of the houses all transgender women, but Porter introduced another concept for them to consider.

He told W, «But wouldn't you need a father figure over there. In that world, wouldn't you need a godfather, somebody who's an energy that is older perhaps.» The casting director took the idea to Murphy, who returned to Porter with a suggestion: «If you can do an impersonation of the emcees at the balls, we'll create something for you.»

Porter added, «It was , 'If?' Miss thing, the whole world is doing an impersonation of the emcee from the balls. For the last 30 years. So yes, darling, I can and I shall.»

Speaking about the future, he told Backstage in a cover profile, «I think it’s more about me becoming the person who creates it—me becoming my own version of a Ryan Murphy. Me becoming my own version of an Oprah Winfrey. Me becoming that,” he said.

“Me having the power to make sure that our stories stay at the front, having the power to greenlight those projects and the power to find those stories and make sure that they’re told in the right way, in the right form with the right kind of focus and energy around it.

I’m trying to be the Head B**** in Charge! I’ve got to do that.»

Porter and his husband have been married since 2017

Porter got married to Adam Smith, co-owner of Native Ken, on January 14, 2017, after a quick engagement. Porter popped the question on December 29, 2016, but they were very passionate about getting married while Barack Obama was still in office.

The two married in a friend's Manhattan penthouse apartment during a small ceremony. They first met in 2009 at a mutual friend’s dinner party, dated for a year, and then broke up before reuniting in 2015.

Porter said about his marriage, “I finally found—we finally found—the thing that has been so elusive, and I’m so excited to share that.”
