The nominations for the upcoming 77th Golden Globes were announced on 9 December 2019 by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which is made up of 90 journalists from around the world. Golden Globe film nominees include top Oscar prospects Marriage Story, The Irishman, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Marriage Story – which leads with six nominations – is followed closely by Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman and Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which both have five.

On the television side, Emmy winners Game of Thrones and Fleabag are once again in the mix, as are Succession and Big Little Lies.

Tim Allen, Dakota Fanning, and Susan Kelechi Watson were tapped as presenters of this year’s nominees.

Tom Hanks will be the recipient of the Cecil B DeMille Award, which recognises a lifetime of achievement in film. Ellen DeGeneres will receive the Carol Burnett Award, which recognises a lifetime achievement in television. Named after legendary actress Carol Burnett, it was first awarded to the Carol Burnett Show star at the 2019 Golden Globes.

The 2020 live telecast will be hosted by Ricky Gervais on 5 January 2020. This marks his fifth time as Master of Ceremony of the event.
