Today (December 12th) sees the announcement of the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards, awarded by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA). The HFPA split their awards, giving certain categories for both Drama and Musical or Comedy, rather than just going for the out-and-out drama as most awards tend to do.

Below is a list of some of the nominees:

Best Picture - Drama
Hacksaw Ridge
Hell Or High Water
Manchester By The Sea

Best Picture - Musical or Comedy
20th Century Women
Florence Foster Jenkins
La La Land

Best Supporting Actress
Viola Davis (Fences)
Naomie Harris (Moonlight)
Nicole Kidman (Lion)
Octavia Spencer (Hidden Figures)
Michelle Williams (Manchester By The Sea)

A full list of nominees can be found here.

I'm truly baffled by Nocturnal Animals' nods (not quite so much for Amy Adams', but definitely for Aaron Taylor-Johnson's and Tom Ford's) but have to say I'm loving the love for Deadpool (both with the Critics' Choice and here). The same names are starting to come up frequently which is usually a good indicator of which way the wind is blowing, so to speak. La La Land has the most total nominations with seven nods, whilst Moonlight gets six and Manchester By The Sea has five.

Next up in awards season will be the announcement of this year's Screen Actors' Guild (SAG) Awards nominations, which will be revealed on Wednesday (14th December).
