It's Hollywood awards season, which means there are too many prestige films for you to watch and not enough time to see them all. This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced—via actors Don Cheadle, Laura Dern and Anna Kendrick—this year's nominations in both film and TV categories for the 74th Golden Globes. Critical darlings Moonlight, La La Land and Manchester by the Sea led film nominees with numerous nods, while new programs, The Crown, The Night Of, This Is Us, Stranger Things and Westworld were recognized, on the TV side.

Here are some highlights, followed by a list of the complete nominations below:

  • Writer-director power: Barry Jenkins (Moonlight), Damien Chazelle (La-La Land), Kenneth Lonergan (Manchester by the Sea) and Tom Ford (Nocturnal Animals) all got Best Director and Best Screenplay nominations. The fifth Screenplay nominee is Taylor Sheridan for Hell or High Water (which also got nominations for Best Picture, Drama, and Jeff Bridges as Best Actor, Drama) and the fifth Best Director nominee is Mel Gibson for Hacksaw Ridge.

  • Lin-Manuel Miranda continued his march towards an EGOT with a nomination for Best Song, for writing "How Far I'll Go" in Moana
  • We guess the HFPA really wants to see Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively dazzle on the red carpet—Reynolds was nominated for Best Actor (Comedy or Musical) for Deadpool. The other nominees in the category are Colin Farrell for The Lobster (basically the opposite of Deadpool), Hugh Grant for Florence Foster Jenkins, Jonah Hill for War Dogs and Ryan Gosling for La La Land.
