What else should you be in the "know" about this awards season?
The usual suspects - Big Blockbusters with critical acclaim are always popular discussion points. Gravity will likely be the most popular this year.
Tom Hanks - He's back (big time) in this awards season race, with both Captain Phillips and Saving Mr. Banks now picking up awards steam.
Indie Prestige - They might not have a lot of nominations, but films like Enough Said (James Gandolfini's last movie) and August: Osage County (with Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts) are sure to be topics for the arthouse/intellectual crowds.
Network vs. Cable - Network TV still has a hold on the comedy award noms, but drama has almost totally been conquered by cable (and now streaming) programming.
The 71st Golden Globe Awards will air Sunday, January 12, 2014 on NBC.
