As award season begins, moviegoers and TV lovers wait anxiously for what’s ahead.  This Sunday, the first of the major awards for both television and movies begin with the Golden Globes starting off the season.

This year, late night talk show host Seth Meyers will be hosting the event, giving those attending and those at home a humorous and entertaining evening.

Some of the films up for best musical or comedy motion picture include Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut “Lady Bird,” Jordan Peele’s psychological thriller “Get Out” and Craig Gillespie’s comedy “I, Tonya.”

“The acting (in Lady Bird) is really good,” senior Haley Deem said.  “I also really love the story.”

The films nominated for best drama motion picture include Christopher Nolan’s World War II movie “Dunkirk,” Steven Spielberg’s drama about the Washington Post called “The Post” and Luca Guadagnino’s unique romance “Call Me By Your Name.”

“There are great breakthrough actors, like Timothée Chalamet, that make the movie interesting to watch,” senior Jaiden Davis said about Luca Guadagnino’s film.  “The soundtrack is also phenomenal.”

The Golden Globes is not only a big event for movies, but it also is a major night for those in television.  Similar to previous years, streaming services like Netflix and Hulu have multiple TV shows that are expected to win major awards.

Best television drama series nominees include Netflix’s “The Crown” and “Stranger Things” alongside Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale.”  Netflix also has a nomination in the best television comedy series category for “Master of None.”

Other shows nominated for best comedy or musical series include “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” ABC’s “Black-ish” and Showtime’s “SMILF.”

The Golden Globes also give viewers a glimpse at the potential Oscar competition, as “The Shape of Water” leads with seven Golden Globe nominations and “The Post” and “Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri” follow with six.
