Not a bad list right? Best Picture is definitely an intriguing bunch, with predictable hopefuls like The Revenant and Carol on board along with indie breakout Room. Let’s not forget film-of-the-people Mad Max: Fury Road which also nabbed Best Director for George Miller. Original screenplay also has a solid mix, with Quentin Tarantino and Aaron Sorkin being joined by Charles Randolph and Adam McKay for The Big Short.

On the TV side of the tracks, newcomer Mr Robot is storming the compeition with Best Drama, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor nominations. Also last year’s big winner Transparent is back, along with Jon Hamm making another grab for a Best Actor Globe for Mad Men.

A sorry day for a few no-noms (no nominations – an abbreviation we’ll be using a lot this award season). Straight Outta Compton failed to break into any categories despite it’s unstoppable success with critics and ox offices alike. Marvel has also had a poor showing, with Daredevil and Jessica Jones both being snubbed for TV awards.

The 2016 Golden Globes will air January 10th, 2016. Will you be watching?
