The award season shifts into high gear Thursday when the nominations for the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards are revealed live on NBC.
Angela Bassett, America Ferrera, Chloë Grace Moretz and Dennis Quaid will announce the nominees from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA. The live stream of the nominations ceremony will be available here beginning at 8:15 a.m. ET, and at GoldenGlobes.com.

The awards ceremony will air live on Jan. 10, 2016 from the the Beverly Hilton Hotel at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC with actor Ricky Gervais returning to host the show for the fourth time. Gervais takes over from Tina Fey and Amy Poehler who emceed the event over the past three years.
In the motion picture drama categories, expect to see nominations for the ensemble journalism piece "Spotlight," Leonardo DiCaprio's brutal "The Revenant," period romance "Carol" starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, Steven Spielberg's "Bridge of Spies," and the coming of age immigrant story "Brooklyn." Other promising contenders include "Creed" based off the "Rocky" franchise, "Mad Max: Fury Road," transgender romance/drama "The Danish Girl," and "The Hateful Eight" – Quentin Tarantino's sweeping cinematic return to the big screen.
For laughs, look to comedy superstar Amy Schumer's "Trainwreck," "The Big Short," Lily Tomlin's "Grandma," and "Joy" from David O. Russell and Jennifer Lawrence, as well as the Matt Damon/Ridley Scott sci-fi hit "The Martian" to receive nods from the HFPA.
Smaller screen nominees in the drama category will likely include "Game of Thrones," "Outlander," "House of Cards," "Mad Men," "The Americans," "How to Get Away With Murder" and "Orphan Black," alongside 2015 newbies "Empire," "Better Call Saul," "Narcos," "Blindspot" and "Mr. Robot."
On the funny side of the TV category aisle, returning favorites "Veep," "Transparent," "Jane the Virgin," "Modern Family" and "Orange Is the New Black" will face tough competition from newcomers "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," "Scream Queens," "Master of None" and "Casual."
The 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards will air live on Sunday, January 10, 2016, from 8:00 p.m. (ET)/5:00-8:00 p.m. (PT) on NBC.
