This year is starting off on the right foot for actor Tom Hiddleston. The 35-year-old is nominated for a big honor, which he may collect on Sunday.

Ahead of the 2017 Golden Globe awards it has been revealed that Hiddleston is one of several nominees in the best performance by an actor in a limited series or a motion picture made for television category. Hiddleston has been recognized for his work on “The Night Manager” miniseries.

Other nominees selected by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association include Riz Ahmed (“The Night Of”), John Turturro, (“The Night Of”), Bryan Cranston (“All the Way”) and Courtney B. Vance (“The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”).

The nomination is Hiddleston’s first for the annual award show. His role of Jonathan Pine, ex-solider turned hotel night porter, on “The Night Manager” was also recognized last month by the Primetime Emmys, though he did not walk away with a win. The same might happen again Sunday night.

While it remains to seen who will get the acting honor, Courtney B. Vance has been sweeping this awards season so far. Vance beat out Hiddleston in outstanding lead actor in a limited series or a movie category at the Primetime Emmys. Vance also won for his role as attorney Johnnie Cochran in the FX series at the Critics Choice Television Awards last month.

If Hiddleston doesn’t win on Sunday, AMC’s “The Night Manager” still has a shot at a victory. The miniseries is up for the best television limited series or motion picture made for television honor at the 74th annual Golden Globes. Other nominees include “American Crime,” “The Dresser,” “The Night Of” and “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.”

The 2017 Golden Globes red carpet kicks off Sunday at 6 p.m. EST on E! and 7 p.m. EST on NBC. The show begins airing live on TV and online at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.
