The Golden Globes hosted by Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg

This week, the ball is getting rolling for the long-running Golden Globes, the popular TV and movies awards show that is heading into its 76th year giving kudos to great movies and TV programs. This week, NBC announced that Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg would be the unlikely duo hosting the large telecast, and now all we're thinking about is whether or not Killing Eve and Brooklyn Nine-Nine will eventually do some sort of weirdo crossover. To distract us from that thought, we're about to learn which TV programs have made an impact on the critics who are a part of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association in the last year.

Each year there are plenty of surprises, snubs and more and 2019 should be no exception. After all, when you only have a small number of categories with nominees split between both TV and movies projects, some categories are bound to fall through the cracks. You can peruse the list of nominees, below. If you'd rather wait for the whole shebang, the 2019 Golden Globes awards will air on Sunday, January 6, only on NBC. It's all part of an eight-year pact the Peacock Network signed with with the HFPA earlier in 2018.

If you're more here for the movies edition of The 2019 Golden Globes, we have you covered. Be sure to take a look at the TV and movies nominees and let us know which you think are the biggest surprises as they roll in!
