Awards season is officially kicking into gear with the announcement of the Golden Globe nominations.
The films and television shows vying for success at the annual awards ceremony are set to be revealed today (3 February) – a whole two months after they’re usually announced.
Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P Henson will host the virtual event, which will begin at 8.35am ET – that’s 1.35pm GMT.
The nominations this year follow the news that the 78th Golden Globes ceremony will be held by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) in two different locations.
Amy Poehler will present from the event’s usual spot in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, while Tina Fey will host from New York’s Rainbow Room.

Another show that could sneak in – and we might regret saying it – is the critically derided Emily in Paris.
It would definitely create a conversation AKA a good way to score publicity.
Yep, Normal People shouldn’t be forgotten despite the fact it feels like it was released a million years ago.
In terms of the acting categories, let’s just reel off some names to get us started:
Olivia Colman, Emma Corrin (The Crown), Sarah Paulson (Ratched), Jonathan Majors (Lovecraft Country), Jason Bateman (Ozark), Elle Fanning (The Great), Michaela Coel (I May Destroy You). Paul Mescal (Normal People), the entire cast of Schitt’s Creek.
Bridgerton fans are assembling – could its immense worldwide success of Christmas translate to a nom?
Then, there’s the Limited Series, Anthology and TV Movie category, which we can all agree will be led by sleeper Netflix hit The Queen’s Gambit and – fingers crossed – the UK’s best show of 2020, I May Destroy You.
Over in the TV, Comedy or Musical category, we have the most entertaining race in years.
The Great, Insecure, Pen15, Ramy, Schitt’s Creek, Ted Lasso, What We Do in the Shadows – need we say more?
Considering the Golden Globes can often overlook acclaimed dramas for the more popular shows, don’t be surprised if Better Call Saul misses out on a nomination in favour of, say, Bridgerton or HBO’s Perry Mason.
The big question is whether Amazon’s NSFW series The Boys can sneak in.
Everyone who has seen the show will agree that a nomination for Antony Starr, who plays the terrifying Homelander, needs to happen.
So, Best TV Series, Drama is shaping up to be an interesting one.
Expect to see the usual prestige fare (The Crown) alongside genuinely fun genre shows (The Mandalorian, the sorely underrated Lovecraft Country).
A lot of people will be keeping their fingers crossed for I May Destroy You.
