The 2017 award season kicks off this Sunday with the 74th annual Golden Globes, honoring the best of the best in TV and movies from the previous year. The show is thought to be indicative of which celebrities will nab Oscars in February, which means you should probably pay close attention to the winners. 

The 2017 Golden Globes features 20 award categories, providing plenty of chances for big wins. Many of this year’s nominees came as no surprise to pop culture junkies — hit shows like “Game of Thrones,” “Stranger Things,” “Transparent” and “Westworld” scored big with television audiences and dominated the nominations. A similar pattern was seen with box office home runs like “Hacksaw Ridge,” “La La Land” and “Deadpool” in the movie categories.

Below is a complete list of nominees as well as our predictions for the biggest awards at the 2017 Golden Globes:

Best Motion Picture -- Drama

  • “Hacksaw Ridge”
  • “Hell or High Water”
  • “Lion”
  • “Manchester by the Sea”
  • “Moonlight”

Prediction: While each of the films in the best motion picture categories garnered some buzz this year, few were as talked about as “Manchester by the Sea” and “Moonlight.” Many believe it will be a tight race between the two for the Golden Globe, making it anyone’s guess as to who will win. While “Manchester by the Sea” features a handful of well-known actors — something that generally delights the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — “Moonlight” scored just slightly (and we do mean slightly) better with critics. As such, we’re predicting that it’ll take the win.

Best Actress in a Motion Picture -- Drama

  • Amy Adams, “Arrival”
  • Jessica Chastain, “Miss Sloane”
  • Isabelle Huppert, “Elle”
  • Ruth Negga, “Loving”
  • Natalie Portman, “Jackie”

Prediction: Portman’s emotional performance as a recently widowed Jackie Kennedy is said to be a lock for this category. Many have are holding out hope for an upset from Negga or Adams, but it seems highly unlikely.

Best Actor in a Motion Picture -- Drama

  • Viggo Mortensen, “Captain Fantastic”
  • Denzel Washington, “Fences”
  • Andrew Garfield, “Hacksaw Ridge”
  • Joel Edgerton, “Loving”
  • Casey Affleck, “Manchester by the Sea”

Prediction: This is definitely going to be a toss up between Washington’s powerful performance in “Fences” and Affleck’s heartbreaking “Manchester by the Sea” performance. Many have said the younger Affleck is a shoe-in for the win.

Best Motion Picture -- Musical or Comedy

  • “20th Century Women”
  • “Deadpool”
  • “Florence Foster Jenkins”
  • “La La Land”
  • “Sing Street”

Prediction: “Deadpool” brought in big numbers at the box office and resonated with comic book fans and beyond, but we think this award is going to “La La Land.” Not only does the film star Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone — two Hollywood elites with award worthy chemistry — but it’s a fun, eye-catching film with songs that will leave you humming along for days. What more could you want?

Best Actress in a Motion Picture -- Musical or Comedy

  • Meryl Streep, “Florence Foster Jenkins”
  • Hailee Steinfeld, “The Edge of Seventeen”
  • Emma Stone, “La La Land”
  • Annette Bening, “20th Century Women”
  • Lily Collins, “Rules Don’t Apply”

Prediction: This category features a lot of star power, but we’re predicting another win for Stone in “La La Land.”

Best Actor in a Motion Picture -- Musical or Comedy

  • Colin Farrell, “The Lobster”
  • Ryan Gosling, “La La Land.”
  • Hugh Grant, “Florence Foster Jenkins”
  • Jonah Hill, “War Dogs”
  • Ryan Reynolds, “Deadpool”

Prediction: “La La Land” will likely take another win again — who could beat Gosling, really?

Best supporting Actress in a Motion Picture

  • Viola Davis, “Fences”
  • Naomie Harris, “Moonlight”
  • Nicole Kidman, “Lion”
  • Octavia Spencer, “Hidden Figures”
  • Michelle Williams, “Manchester by the Sea”

Prediction: There’s a lot of star power in this category, but we suspect this Golden Globe win is going to go to Davis. Still, it’s going to be a close race between her and Williams, who has been praised for her tragic performance in “Manchester by the Sea.”

Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture

  • Mahershala Ali, “Moonlight”
  • Jeff Bridges, “Hell or High Water”
  • Simon Helberg, “Florence Foster Jenkins”
  • Dev Patel, “Lion”
  • Aaron Taylor-Johnson, “Nocturnal Animals”

Prediction: This category is almost too close to call, with both Ali and Bridges’ performances worthy of the Golden Globe, but we’re giving this one to “Moonlight.” The film is more than deserving of some recognition this award season and we think this is just the opportunity.

Best Director -- Motion Picture

  • Damien Chazelle, “La La Land”
  • Tom Ford, “Nocturnal Animals”
  • Mel Gibson, “Hacksaw Ridge”
  • Barry Jenkins, “Moonlight”
  • Kenneth Lonergan, “Manchester by the Sea”

Prediction: Can we just call for a three way tie between Chazelle, Jenkins and Lonergan? The trio are responsible for three of the biggest films of the year, but only one can emerge victorious. While many believe “Moonlight” should win, there’s a chance it’ll be edged out by Chazelle’s directing of “La La Land.”

Best Screenplay -- Motion Picture

  • Damien Chazelle, “La La Land”
  • Tom Ford, “Nocturnal Animals”
  • Barry Jenkins, “Moonlight”
  • Kenneth Lonergan, “Manchester by the Sea”

Prediction: Although “La La Land” is expected to sweep at this year’s award show, we’re predicting a big win for Lonergan and “Manchester by the Sea” here. His work is always warmly received by the HFPA and this film in particular has been getting a lot of praise from audiences and critics alike.

Best TV Series -- Drama

  • “The Crown”
  • Game of Thrones
  • “Stranger Things”
  • “This is Us”
  • “Westworld”

Prediction: While we are of the belief that few series are better than “Game of Thrones,” we simply don’t see the HBO original series winning its first award in this category this year. Instead, our money is on “This is Us.” The show debuted on NBC in 2016 and hit audiences where it hurt — in a good way. The show is raw, emotional and most of all relatable. Viewers are constantly left guessing what will come next and that’s rare to find in a TV series these days. Still, “The Crown” and “Westworld” shouldn’t be counted out. Both are serious contenders for the Golden Globe award.

Best Actress in a TV Series -- Drama

  • Caitriona Balfe, “Outlander”
  • Claire Foy, “The Crown”
  • Keri Russell, “The Americans”
  • Winona Ryder, “Stranger Things”
  • Evan Rachel Wood, “Westworld”

Prediction: This category is another that’s simply too close to call. Both Ryder and Wood are deserving of the part, but many predict the “Stranger Things” actress will pull off the win. Only time will tell.

Best Actor in a TV Series -- Drama

  • Rami Malek, “Mr. Robot”
  • Bob Odenkirk, “Better Call Saul”
  • Matthew Rhys, “The Americans”
  • Liev Schreiber, “Ray Donovan”
  • Billy Bob Thornton, “Goliath”

Prediction: This category is often a toss up at the Golden Globes. As such, many are predicting a win for Thornton, though the HPFA could go the more tradition and obvious route and choose either Malek or Odenkirk.

Best TV Series -- Musical or Comedy

  • Atlanta
  • “Blackish”
  • “Motzart in the Jungle”
  • “Transparent”
  • “Veep”

Prediction: There’s been a lot of buzz about “Atlanta” — which premiered in September 2016 and is worthy of each and every second of shine that it got — taking the win in this category. The show is unlike anything many have seen before on the small screen. It’s also hilarious and oozing with coolness, which should be enough to secure the Golden Globe.

Best Actress in a TV Series -- Musical or Comedy

  • Rachel Bloom, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”
  • Julia Louis-Dreyfus, “Veep”
  • Sarah Jessica Parker, “Divorce”
  • Issa Rae, “Insecure”
  • Gina Rodriguez, “Jane the Virgin”
  • Tracee Ellis Ross, “Blackish”

Prediction: The HFPA has a history of awarding the newcomer in this category, which gives “Insecure” leading lady Rae an even better chance of winning. The HBO original series has been met with rave reviews from audiences, but it’ll have some serious competition in this category. Still, we’re rooting for Rae to take home the Golden Globe — she deserves it!

Best Actor in a TV Series -- Musical or Comedy

  • Anthony Anderson, “Blackish”
  • Gael Garcia Bernal, “Mozart in the Jungle”
  • Nick Nolte, “Graves”
  • Jeffrey Tambor, “Transparent”

Prediction: We’re going to give this win to Glover for his performance in FX’s “Atlanta.” The odds of him winning seem even greater with the show slated to win best TV series in the comedy or musical category, though “Mozart in the Jungle” and “Transparent” also stand a chance of swooping in and stealing the statuette.

Best TV Movie or Miniseries

  • “American Crime”
  • “The Dresser”
  • “The Night Manager”
  • “The Night Of”
  • “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”

Prediction: It goes without saying that “The People v. O.J. Simpson” has done well at every award show in just about every category it’s been nominated in since its premiere. While there are plenty of other deserving programs nominated, we’re predicting the FX series will maintain its trajectory and win big.

Best Actress in a Miniseries or TV Movie

  • Felicity Huffman, “American Crime”
  • Riley Keough, “The Girlfriend Experience”
  • Sarah Paulson, “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”
  • Charlotte Rampling, “London Spy”
  • Kerry Washington, “Confirmation”

Prediction: Like we said before, one does not simply go up against “The People v. O.J. Simpson” and win. Paulson will likely take home the statuette for this category.

Best Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie

  • Riz Ahmed, “The Night Of”
  • Bryan Cranston, “All the Way”
  • Tom Hiddleston, “The Night Manager”
  • John Turturro, “The Night Of”
  • Courtney B. Vance, “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”

Prediction: See above — Vance pretty much has this one on lock.

Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Miniseries or TV Movie

  • Olivia Colman, “The Night Manager”
  • Lena Headey, “Game of Thrones”
  • Chrissy Metz, “This is Us”
  • Mandy Moore, “This is Us”
  • Thandie Newton, “Westworld”

Prediction: Even with two nominations in this category, we don’t see Metz or Moore pulling out a win for their phenomenal performances in “This is Us.” Not with “Game of Thrones” star Headey and “Westworld” actress Newton in the picture anyway. Headey more than earned her nomination for her unbelievable performance in the final episodes of Season 6 of “Game of Thrones,” but we’re going to have to go with George R.R. Martin on this one and say Newton’s going to beat her out and bring home the gold.

Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Miniseries or TV Movie

  • John Travolta, “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”
  • Christian Slater, “Mr. Robot”
  • John Lithgow, “The Crown”
  • Hugh Laurie, “The Night Manager”
  • Sterling K. Brown, “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”

Prediction: While Lithgow or Slater could easily take home the win in this category, we’re going to stick with our instincts and say brace for another “People v. O.J. Simpson” win for either Brown or Travolta.
