Every year, at around this time, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announce the pre-pre Oscars nominations, otherwise known as the Golden Globe nominations.

Repping ‘Straya is ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ – up for three golden statues, including Best Picture because duh – and Cate Blanchett, who scored a nod for her role in ‘Carol’

Our hopes are pinned on the *insane* amount of FX/stunts/madness in George Miller‘s masterpiece (and TBH it look long enough to warrant an award based purely on his dedication), and a Globe is a serious possibility – the movie just took out Best Film and Direction at the AACTAs

Almost every A-lister up for an award has tweeted his/her glee at being recognised, but the only one that matters comes from Wiz Khalifa, whose tribute track to late m8 Paul Walker ‘See You Again’ (ft. Charlie Puth) is up for Best Original Song.

‘Mad Max’ & Cate Blanchett Lend Aussie Flavour To 2016 Golden Globe Noms

Ricky Gervais will host the Globes for the third time (they just can’t shake him… or maybe he can’t shake them #ratings) on January 10.
