The 74th Golden Globe Awards take place Sunday, Jan. 8 with Jimmy Fallon taking on hosting duties. "La La Land," with seven nominations, "Moonlight," with six and "Manchester by the Sea," with five nominations are film frontrunners. In TV, the heart-warming "This is Us" series scored more nominations than bloody, crowd favorite "Game of Thrones." New TV was certainly the trend, "Atlanta," "Insecure," and "Westworld" all racked up nominations showcasing lots of talent and fresh creators.

The biggest surprise? Multiple nods for comic book underdog movie "Deadpool."

Scroll down for all the reactions and predictions for the big night.

Awards season's big three -- 'La La Land,' 'Manchester' and 'Moonlight' -- continue to lead the way at Globes

"La La Land," "Manchester by the Sea" and "Moonlight" earned Golden Globes nominations for picture, director, writing and acting -- another sign that these three films are the movies to beat this awards season.

"La La Land" picked up seven nominations, with "Moonlight" getting six and "Manchester" five.

Surprising showings: Tom Ford's dark drama "Nocturnal Animals" was a big hit with the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., picking up two nods for Ford -- directing and screenplay -- as well as a nomination for supporting actor Aaron Taylor Johnson. (Not Michael Shannon? Really?)

The HFPA also continued to show its loyalty to Mel Gibson, giving his war drama "Hacksaw Ridge" three nominations -- picture, director and lead actor Andrew Garfield. The movie continues to pick up steam leading up to next month's Oscar nominations.

Here's the rundown: 

"La La Land" - 7


"Moonlight" - 6


"Manchester by the Sea" - 5

 

"Lion" - 4


"Hacksaw Ridge" - 3
