LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - Fandango is latching on to 2018 Golden Globes hype to try to lure new customers to its FandangoNow streaming service -- offering 50% off rentals or purchases of several nominated movies and TV shows for a limited time.

The nominations for the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards were announced Thursday (see full list here). FandangoNow’s half-price deal is available to U.S. customers using the promo code “GLOBES19” at checkout through Dec. 9 at 11:59 p.m. PT.

The deal means, for example, that Disney/Marvel’s “Black Panther” -- nominated in three Golden Globes categories -- will be available to rent in HD for $2 (normally $3.99) and to buy in HD for $10 (normally $19.99).

However, many of the nominees aren’t available on FandangoNow. Titles that aren’t in the home-video window yet include “A Star Is Born,” “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Mary Poppins Returns,” “Boy Erased,” “The Favourite,” “Green Book” and “If Beale Street Could Talk.”

Also, several nominated TV shows aren’t available on FandangoNow, including Netflix’s “The Kominsky Method” and “Bodyguard”; Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “”Homecoming”; and BBC America’s “Killing Eve.”

Golden Globes-nominated movies currently available on FandangoNow are “Black Panther,” “BlacKkKlansman,” “Crazy Rich Asians,” “Vice,” “Isle of Dogs,” “Mirai,” “Incredibles 2,” “Eighth Grade” (for actress Elsie Fisher), “Tully” (for actress Charlize Theron) and “A Quiet Place” (for music score).

TV shows picking up Globes nominations that are eligible for FandangoNow’s 50% off deal include: FX’s “Pose,” “Atlanta,” “The Americans” and “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”; HBO’s “Westworld,” “The Tale,” “Succession,” “Barry” and “Sharp Objects”; Showtime’s “Patrick Melrose” and “Who Is America?” starring Sacha Baron Cohen; Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale”; NBC’s “Will & Grace” and “The Good Place”; Bravo’s “Dirty John”; and Starz’s “Outlander.”
