The 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards is just around the corner and will kick off awards season to celebrate the most successful individuals and projects in the film and TV industry over the last year.

To kick of February, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced the list of Golden Globes nominees after a year when the world was forced to remain at home, as much as possible and turn to their TV screens and laptops for entertainment amid the Coronavirus pandemic.

A quick look at the nominations and there are several ELLE-favourite Netflix original dramas in the midst, with The Crown leading the way with six nominations, Schitt’s Creek boasting a whopping five and Emily In Paris receiving two nods for its lead actress Lily Collins and for Best Television Series.

Other notable nominations include Chadwick Boseman, who passed away last year from colon cancer. The 43-year-old received a posthumous nomination for his role in the Netflix film Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. Additionally, three women – Emerald Fennell, Regina King and Chloe Zhao - have been nominated for Best Director, which is a stark contrast to the 2019 nominations list when several women who were viewed as contenders for the category (Greta Gerwig, Lulu Wang, Lorene Scafaria and Marielle Heller) were excluded.

The nominations were not without controversy though, most notably when it came to the exclusion of I May Destroy You and Michaela Coel in all respective categories, despite it being one of the most exciting, critically-acclaimed, hyped and lauded series of 2020 both in the UK and US.

Here's everything you need to know about the 2021 Golden Globes

When are the 2021 Golden Globes?

Sunday February 28, 2021.

Who is hosting the 2021 Golden Globes?

Earlier in the month, it was announced that comedic duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will take the helm of the awards show as its host for the fourth time. And we for one can’t wait to see what the pair will get up to when the show airs on Sunday, February 28 on NBC.

For the first time in history, the hosts won't be in the same time zone - as the Hollywood Reporter reports that Poehler will be televised live from Los Angeles and Fey from New York City.

Who is presenting at the 2021 Golden Globes?

In the week leading up to the ceremony, the HFPA announced some presenters - though they won't all be in the same location like usual.

Margot Robbie, Tiffany Haddish, Kate Hudson, Kenan Thompson, Sterling K Brown, Catherine Zeta Jones, Cynthia Erivo, Kristen Wiig and Awkwafina will all be presenting at the 2021 ceremony.

Other presenters include last year's winners like Renee Zellweger, who picked up the Best Actress in a Drama Motion Picture award for her portrayal of Judy Garland in Judy and Joaquin Phoenix who was awarded the Best Actor in a Drama Motion Picture gong for Joker.
