Comedian Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show will be hosting the 2017 award show this year. Fallon’s last hosting gig was for the Emmy Awards in 2010.

The big front runner this year is "La La Land" with seven nominations including best performances for both Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone as well as screenplay. The film will be a high contender for best motion picture with the rest of the musical or comedy category.

"Moonlight," received plenty of attention with six nominations including best motion picture in the drama category as well as best screenplay. The film portrays a young man coping with his dysfunctional home life and comes of age in Miami during the "War on Drugs" era. The story of his life is depicted through three chapters in his life played by three different actors which made it difficult to contend for a leading male nomination.

Mel Gibson is up for best director for "Hacksaw Ridge," his first nomination since "What Woman Want," in 2001. “Hacksaw Ridge” is Gibson’s fifth directorial effort, following “The Man Without a Face,” “Braveheart,” “The Passion of the Christ” and “Apocalypto.”

Andrew Garfield starring in Hacksaw Ridge.

Martin Scorsese's "Silence," came up empty with no nominations. However star, Andrew Garfield picked up a nomination for another film for best actor in Gibson's "Hacksaw Ridge."

"Manchester by the Sea," has five nominations including best drama. Casey Affleck who is also up for best actor plays an uncle who is forced to take guardianship over his nephew after the boy's father dies.

Moving away from movies, the television category is lively this year with all sorts of new shows that came out this past fall. The drama category for the most part is all new series aside from "Game of Thrones." The other new contenders include HBO's "Westworld" and "The Night Of," Netflix's "Stranger Things" and "The Crown," and NBC's first nomination in 10 years since "Heroes," tear-jerker, "This Is Us."

Netflix series, Stranger Things.

In the comedy category, Donald Glover received a nomination for his show "Atlanta," on FX. “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” miniseries carries the most nominations in the television category with five.

The Golden Globe Awards will air live on NBC on Sunday, January 8th from 8:00-11:00 p.m. ET/5:00-8:00 p.m. PT.

As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack.
