The 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards viewer ratings this year will surely beat last year's.

In 2008, due to the strike by Hollywood writers, NBC aired an hour long list of winners, read aloud by the co-hosts of Access Hollywood. The star-packed annual gala after the awards show was also gone.

The show, which usually draws nearly 20 million viewers plummeted to just 5.8 million - less than one-third of its viewers in 2007.

The Golden Globes are already the award show that feels the most like a party. This year, it will be even so, since there essentially wasn't a show last year, says Dave Karger of Entertainment Weekly.

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz are all nominees and are expected to attend. Other celebrities have also confirmed to present awards Sunday night.

Viewers can tune in on Sunday at 8 p.m. EST, with NBC airing the festivities live from the celebrity-packed ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
