The  Hollywood awards seasons is officially running full speed ahead.

On the heels of yesterday’s SAG nominations, the Hollywood Foreign Press announced the nominees for the Golden Globes on Thursday morning. Angela Bassett, America Ferrera, Dennis Quaid, and Abigail Breslin were on hand bright and earlier to reveal who is going to be feeling golden come January.

There were a lot of surprises and shakeups in the major categories. Some perennial favorites like Modern Family, and Mad Men were shut out of their usual nods, making way for some of the Netflix crew to make their marks.

In the film categories, while the SAG nominations were deemed to be very out of the norm, the Globes seem to return a sense of order and comfort, not to mention more diversity with this year’s crop of nominees.

Some actors received twice the amount of love as there are four who have been nominated twice in different acting categories (we see you, Idris!).
