A year after Covid-19 disrupted the world, taking awards season down with it, the Golden Globes kick off the first of 2021's major Hollywood ceremonies.

Taking place for the first time as a bi-costal event, live from the The Beverly Hilton, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles and New York's Rainbow Room on Sunday, February 28 ( 8pm EST, 5pm PT, 5am+1 GST), the awards will celebrate the best of film and television, after one of the industry's most challenging years to date. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host this year's ceremony from either coast.

The nominees were announced on Wednesday, February 3, in a live stream hosted by Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P Henson. Among this year's nominees are late actor Chadwick Boseman, Sir Anthony Hopkins and Frances McDormand.

Boseman, who passed away last year after a battle with colon cancer, received the posthumous nomination for his role Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.

This year is also a record year for female directors, with three women nominated in the Best Director category for the first time in the awards' history.

Streaming giant Netflix led this year's nominations in both television and film nominations, where Mank received six nominations and The Trial of the Chicago 7 received five. In television series, The Crown led with six nominations, while Schitt's Creek received five.
