    The 2016 Golden Globe nominations were announced in Los Angeles Thursday morning, honoring some of our favorite movies, television shows, and performances of the year. Todd Haynes' lesbian love story Carol leads all films with four nods, including dual Best Actress nominations for Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. Adam McKay's scathing financial crisis satire The Big Short is close behind with three nominations, while Oscar hopefuls like Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant), Saorise Ronan (Brooklyn), and Jennifer Lawrence (Joy), all improved their chances. And let us not forget about two of comedy's biggest stars Amy Schumer and Melissa McCarthy, who benefited from the separate drama and comedy categories and landed nominations for Trainwreck and Spy respectively.

    As for the television categories, Game of Thrones is once again nominated for Best Drama alongside Mr. Robot and Empire, while Transparent, Veep, and Orange is The New Black will duke it out for Best Comedy. One of most pleasant surprises is Lady Gaga's warm welcome into the acting world. The pop star scored her first nomination for her first ever role, as The Countess in American Horror Story: Hotel. 

    The Golden Globes will take place on January 10, and while Tina and Amy have hung u their gowns for the time being, Ricky Gervais will once again bring his acid tongue to the Beverly Hilton stage. Check out the full list of nominees below.
