The nominations for the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards have been announced, and as is often the case with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s award show, the list of nominees is an eclectic mix of projects and performers that span a wide range of what the movie and television industries offered up over the last 12 months.

The nominations were announced Monday, December 12, by actors Don Cheadle, Laura Dern, and Anna Kendrick, and the list of nominees includes some surprising films and actors who aren’t likely to get as much attention from the Golden Globes’ more prestigious (or possibly elitist, depending on who you ask) counterpart, The Academy Awards, but are deserving of recognition all the same.

Chief among those unlikely honorees was the “R”-rated superhero comedy Deadpool, which earned not one, but two nominations.

Unlike the Academy Awards, the Golden Globe Awards honor both film and television projects,  and their casts and creative teams. The Golden Globes also differentiate based on genre, with nominations divided between drama and “musical or comedy” categories. The winners of each category are determined by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

This year’s ceremony will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon, and it will also honor eight-time Golden Globe winner Meryl Streep with the 2017 Cecil B. DeMille Award.

The 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony will air live on NBC from 8-11 p.m. ET on January 8, 2017.
