The Hollywood Foreign Press Association revealed the people and projects that will be celebrated at the 2020 Golden Globe Awards by announcing the nominations for the 77th annual show.

Tim Allen, Dakota Fanning and Susan Kelechi Watson gathered to announce the nominations for the Jan. 5 show, which honors achievements in both film and television. Following the announcement of nominees for many of the awards, the top categories were reserved for an announcement on the “Today” show.
