Whether it’s their first nomination or their tenth nomination, finding out you’re in the running to win a Golden Globe award is seriously exciting. Don’t believe us? Just take it from these celebs, some industry veterans (hello Christian Slater’s comeback), and others, who are newer to the scene, but just as loved (we’re looking at you Millie Bobby Brown).
Whether you’re invested in wins for TV’s newest tearjerker This Is Us, or Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone’s magical, whimsical, musical movie, La La Land, we’re sure you’ll be on the edge of your seat all night, as the winners are announced during the show next month.
The full list of nominees was announced on Monday and plenty of Hollywood’s elite took to Instagram to congratulate their co-stars, celebrate their own nominations, or give special shout-outs to some of their friends who are hoping to take home a globe.
