Golden Globe nominations are in, and it’s a busy time for the nominees, with the top three films vying for the honor of Best Picture.
Here’s what you need to know ahead of Sunday’s telecast: Golden Globe nominations: What are the nominations?
The Golden Globes are one of the most-anticipated events in movie history, with nominations from around the world.
In a statement, Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs said the nominees would be announced at a later date.
The Oscars, which are also broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Sunday, are being held in Los Angeles and are being hosted by John Oliver, who has previously compared the Oscars to the Oscars for the awards season.
Oliver is known for his satirical take on Hollywood, particularly the Oscars.
What’s at stake?
There’s a very good chance Oscar voters will not only choose the winner of each of the three films, but will also make some other big choices as well, such as a new Best Director, Best Actress or Best Actor nomination for the movie in question.
The nominees are nominated in three categories: Best Original Screenplay, Best Original Score, and Best Cinematography.
In an interview on Monday, Oliver predicted that if he was given the reins to helm the awards show, he would take on the best picture and the best director.
“I think that’s what I’ll be doing,” he said.
But Oliver has also been criticised for the nominations he’s made so far.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Oliver said he was going to take the reins of the Oscars show and it would be “like taking the reins on an airplane.”
“The Oscars are a show about being in control,” Oliver said.
“I’m going to make sure I’m in control of everything that I do.”
What to watch for: The nominees will be announced in Los Vegas on Sunday morning, with Oscars host John Oliver hosting the ceremony live on BBC Two.
On Sunday evening, the Golden Globets will air live on ITV and Sky Sports.
Where do I watch?
Watch the Oscars on BBC One, Channel 4, Sky, BT Sport and the BBC iPlayer.
Is Oliver going to win?
Oliver said he would win if given the chance.
He said: “It’s not like we’re going to give him the best actor award or best actress award.
He’s not going to get the best actress for Best Director or Best Screenplay.”
Is he a Hollywood movie genius?
“It’s going to be a very interesting and complicated process for him,” Oliver told the BBC.
Oliv added: “I think the people that are going to watch the Golden Globe Awards are people who have a lot of respect for the craft of film.
People that have seen all the movies that have been made in this country and who are aware of how Hollywood works.
I think that the people watching are going, ‘He’s the one who’s going do the best work’.” Can I get a ticket?
Tickets for Sunday’s Oscars are on sale from Monday at the following price points: £10.50 for adults, £5.50 kids (two-and-under) and free to children (one-and/or under six years old).
Tickets will also be available from the Royal Box Office, the Royal Pavilion at the Grand Hyatt Regency, the National Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company Box Office from 10am on Sunday.
Can we watch the Oscars online?
Yes, the Oscars can be viewed online, but it will require a subscription to the BBC app.
Does he have a movie on his list?
Oliver said that if nominated, he was likely to be in the running for the Best Director award.
