The Golden Globe Awards are happening this Sunday on NBC. But come on, you knew that already, so here are four other things you need to know about the big show. 

1. The Co-Hosts 

The first thing you need to know about the Golden Globes is that they’ll be co-hosted by Brooklyn 99 star Andy Samberg and Killing Eve star Sandra Oh, who are apparently “best friends.” This may or not be true, but what definitely is true is that Oh will be the first Canadian and the first Asian to ever host the Golden Globes. 

The pair has big co-host shoes to fill, since the last duo to share hosting duties for the Globes were Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, a pairing so popular they hosted three years in a row.  

2. The Most Nominated Movie 

The second thing you need to know about the Golden Globes is that Vice is the most nominated movie. The story of how Dick Cheney became arguably the most powerful vice president in American history has six nominations, followed by The Favourite, Green Book, and A Star is Born with five each. Blackkklansman and Mary Poppins Returns have four nominations each.  

3. Most Nominated TV Project 

You can’t forget about the small screen! The most nominated TV project was The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. Season 2 of the FX true crime series got four nominations, followed by The Americans, Barry, Homecoming, the Kominsky Method, Sharp Objects, A Very English Scandal and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel all tied with three nominations each.  

4. Jeff Bridges is Already a Winner 

And the fourth thing you need to k now about the Globes is that one person will definitely be getting an award Sunday night. Congratulations in advance to Jeff Bridges! Whether you know him as the dude from The Big Lebowski or from some of his other major roles, he’ll be receiving the Cecil B. Demille Award Sunday night for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment. And get this – it’ll only be his third Golden Globe win ever. His most recent was in 2010 for Crazy Heart.  

Now you’re good to go for the Globes, so don’t forget to tune in this Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT on NBC.
