The start of a new year means the start of a new awards season. Things kick off this Sunday, with the 75th Golden Globe Awards at 8 p.m. Eastern. You can stream or rent all of the television nominees somewhere online, meaning you've got mere days to catch up (perfect for a #bombcyclone snow day, actually). Some of the movie nominees are available too, but you'll need to get to a theater to see most of them.
Here's where you can watch the nominees for best series (and some movies):
Best Drama Series
- Game of Thrones (HBO)
- The Handmaid's Tale (Hulu)
- Stranger Things (Netflix)
- This is Us (Hulu)
- The Crown (Netflix)
Best Musical or Comedy Series
- Black-ish (Hulu)
- Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Amazon)
- Master of None (Netflix)
- SMILF (Showtime)
- Will & Grace (Hulu)
Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television
- Big Little Lies (HBO)
- Fargo (Hulu)
- Feud: Bette and Joan (available for purchase only, Amazon)
- The Sinner (available for purchase only, Amazon)
- Top of the Lake: China Girl (Hulu)
At least a handful of these are based on books, so you can always check The Handmaid's Tale, Game of Thrones, or Big Little Lies out of your local library if you want to see what everyone's talking about.
As for the movies in major categories, most of them are still in theaters, such as Best Drama nominees Call Me By Your Name and The Post, which just came out. Best Musical or Comedy nominees include The Disaster Artist, I, Tonya, and Lady Bird. You'll want to fire up that Movie Pass subscription and knock these ones out this weekend before the big show Sunday night.
That said, a handful are available: You can stream Get Out on HBO, and you can rent Dunkirk on Amazon. Plus, Mudbound is a Netflix original movie, in which Mary J. Blige was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture. Animated Best Picture nominee, The Boss Baby, is also on Netflix, but sadly fellow nominee Coco isn't. In the Best Foreign Language Film category, you can find First They Killed My Father on Netflix.
Hollywood loves bringing books to the silver screen, and this year is no exception. If you've got some time, you can read the original novel Call Me by Your Name by André Aciman.
