A nomination for a Golden Globe more often than not tips an actor for Oscar success a few weeks later.

Often seen as the start of the so-called 'Awards Season', the annual Golden Globes are the year's first indication of awards success for the films and TV shows of the past 12 months.

Taking place in early January, the nominations for 2020's ceremony have just been announced.

Martin Scorcese's gangster epic The Irishman - available to stream on Netflix now - picked up five nominations, but was beaten to being the most nominated film as Noah Baumbach's Marriage Story picked up six nods.

Both films are nominated in the Best Motion Picture - Drama category.

Elsewhere, Quentin Tarantino's latest movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood picked up five nominations, including Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy.

Other big success stories included Joker and The Two Popes, which both received four nominations

In TV, The Crown received four nominations, including Olivia Colman for Best Actress TV Series -Drama, as did Apple TV's flagship drama The Morning Show.

When are the Golden Globes?

The 77th Golden Globes take place on Sunday 5 January, though because of the time difference in America, it will actually be the early hours of the morning of 6 January when those in the UK will be able to watch the ceremony live.

You will be able to watch the ceremony through the Awards' official website.

They will once again be hosted by Ricky Gervais, who has previously helmed the awards four times, each more controversial than the last.

This will be the last time the British comedian hosts.

Who won last year?

At the start of 2019, British talent had a lot to celebrate, with Christian Bale, Olivia Colman and Richard Madden among the winners of the annual ceremony that has kick started award season.

Not only did Colman win an award for her part in The Favourite, but the British actress also won at giving one of the best acceptance speeches at the prestigious awards ceremony when she opened with "Cor blimey!" and addressed fellow actresses Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz as her "bitches".

Elsewhere, Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody took home best film in the drama category, seeing off competition from A Star Is Born.

Killing Eve actress Sandra Oh was the star of the night when she scooped the award for best actress in a TV series drama for her role as Eve Polastri in the hit BBC drama.

In fact, the actress made history by being the first Asian woman to win two Golden Globes. The star won her first award in 2006 for her role as Cristina Yang in medical drama Grey's Anatomy.
