The 2017 Golden Globe Awards are just hours away and fans of TV and film are on the edge of their seats waiting to find out which of their favorite stars will win big, and which will be sent home empty handed.

The nominees for the 74th annual program include a flurry of shows and movies both new and old. “This is Us,” which premiered on NBC in September 2016, has been nominated three times in two categories. The number of nominations the drama received has dedicated fans crossing their fingers “This is Us” will beat out hits like “Game of Thrones,” “Stranger Things” and “Westworld.”

“This is Us” is nominated for best TV series (drama). The series is up against “The Crown,” “Game of Thrones,” “Westworld” and “Stranger Things.” Some are predicting it to beat out both “Game of Thrones” and “Westworld,” which many thought would sweep during awards season.

Female stars Chrissy Metz and Mandy Moore are also nominated for their participation in the show in the best supporting actress category. The actresses are facing off with Lena Headey for her role as Cersei Lannister in “Game of Thrones” and Thandie Newton for playing Maeve in “Westworld.” Both are expected to lose to Newton, who proved to be the breakout star in Season 1 of “Westworld.”

Metz has yet to address her nomination. In December 2016, Moore opened up to Entertainment Weekly, telling the publication that it was “bizarre.” She explained that she was awake when the announcements were made, but wasn’t “expecting to be recognized.” When she checked her phone, she saw a congratulatory text from “This is Us” co-star Milo Ventimiglia that blew her mind.

“Milo was actually the one who texted me and was like, ‘Congratulations, Mandy!’ I was like, ‘Wait, on what? The show got nominated?’ He’s like, ‘No, you did!’,” she said. “My jaw was definitely on the ground and I just started shaking. I’ve never been nominated for anything in my life.”

Be sure to catch the Golden Globes on Sunday, Jan. 8, at 7 p.m. EST on NBC.
