Awards season in 2021 has a slightly different flavour to it than usual – what with the havoc the coronavirus pandemic has wreaked on the film industry – but most of the big awards ceremonies are still going ahead this year.


One of the most high-profile events, and one that is often considered something of a pre-cursor to the Oscars, is the Golden Globes, and we won't have to wait too much longer before finding out which films and shows are nominated.

The Globes, which are voted for by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, are notable for celebrating the best in both film and television, so there will be no shortage of talking points when the nominees are unveiled.
