When it comes to awards shows, the Golden Globe Awards is like the redheaded step-child in comparison to the Academy Awards. Sure, they are fun and exciting but only in relation to the Oscars. Based on the actors and films nominated, it is bound to be a competitive Academy Awards season (unlike last year) as the categories are stacked.

Scheduled to air on January 10th at 5pm PST / 8pm EST, four time Globes host Ricky Gervais will have his hands full as he helps announce the winners in the following film and television categories.

After the awards show airs, an asterisk next to a title will signal the winner of the category.
