Is your fave TV show nominated?

Stranger Things, everyone's favourite 1980s aline-based TV drama, has been nominated for two Golden Globe awards.

The Netflix series is up for Best TV Series, Drama, alongside Westworld, The Crown, This Is Us and Game Of Thrones.

Plus, Winona Ryder has been nominated in the Best Performance By An Actress In A TV Series, Drama for her role as Joyce Byers. 


She will face off against Claire Foy, Evan Rachel Wood, Kerri Russell and Caitriona Balfe at the ceremony in January.

Other notable nominations include Ariana Grande who is up for Best Original Song alongside Justin Timberlake but sadly no Twenty One Pilots. 


We can still hope for that Oscar though Clique! Finger crossed...

The Golden Globes will take place in Los Angeles on January 8th. They will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon who will no doubt find everything and everyone so unbelievably hilarious that he fails to finish a sentence without dieing of laughter.
