Oh hello, is it getting a little warm in here? Could it be the start of — yes! — awards-show fever? After months of talk and early speculations, awards season is ready to begin in earnest with the Golden Globes nominations on Monday morning and Wednesday’s Screen Actors Guild nominations to follow. Combined, these nods will give us a slightly clearer lens to look at the path to the Oscars in March.

The nicest thing about picking a Golden Globes wishlist is that they’re so much more elbow room thanks to the division of films into both drama and musical or comedy categories — unless you are a supporting actor or director, then you are out of luck. (If anyone knows the answer as to why this is, please let us know.)
