Below is a list of our favorite Golden Globes moments of all time. Stay tuned to MTV News for our full coverage this weekend — and who knows? Maybe we'll be reporting on a new, unexpected moment that could only happen at the Globes.

FROM MTV.COM: The Golden Globes are only a few days away and while you can expect to see quite a few familiar faces — vets like George Clooney, James Cameron, Steve Carell and Emily Blunt — there will also be a number of newbies hitting the red carpet this year.
Lea Michele graced TV screens in 2009 in the breakout musical-comedy series "Glee," quickly going from unknown to well-known. The acting and singing chops she shows every week playing Rachel Berry have earned her a Best Actress in a Television Series, Comedy or Musical nomination.

This Friday, the stars will gather to celebrate the best of last year at the 15th Annual Critics' Choice Awards. The MTV blog properties will be covering it, starting with a red carpet live blog from 8:30pm to 9pm EST over on Hollywood Crush. I'll be following that immediately afterwards with live blog coverage of the show here on MTV Movies Blog. We'll even have a fancy embedded player, streaming a feed directly from the show's backstage festivities onto your computer screen. It's going to be magical.
Then, on Sunday, we'll be back with more awards show coverage when the Golden Globe Awards airs. Look for a lengthier red carpet live blog, between 7pm and 9pm EST, on Hollywood Crush. Then, just like Friday, you'll want to head over to MTV Movies Blog for ongoing live blog coverage of the show as it happens. For a list of Golden Globes nominees, check out our previous coverage. You can find the Critics' Choice Awards nominees listed after the jump. Read More...
Editor's Note: This was supposed to publish yesterday at noon. Not sure what happened there. Sorry about that, y'all.
The Golden Globe nominations are the talk of Tinsel Town today, but it's not necessarily the awards themselves that people are focused on. Oftentimes, the Globes are an interesting indicator of what we might see at the bigger event — namely, the Academy Awards.
If this year's Globes are any indication, then it's safe to say that Meryl Streep is going to get some loving at next year's Oscars. Streep had two starring roles this year in the forms of "It's Complicated" and "Julie & Julia," both of which are contending for the Best Musical or Comedy category. As a result, the actress's biggest competition this year is herself, believe it or not. Read More...
In case you missed all of the yapping that we and other media outlets have been doing today, the nominations for the 2010 Golden Globe Awards dropped this morning. As is the case every year, there are some obvious picks, a few surprises and plenty of discussion points to get the talking heads... uhhh... talking.
The best place to start is with a straight-up numbers breakdown. Of the 12 completely open movie categories -- Best Foreign and Best Animated don't really apply, as they're so specific -- there are some interesting trends to consider. The Golden Globe Awards are traditionally viewed as a barometer for what to expect at the Academy Awards later in the year. Reading it isn't foolproof of course, and the landscape could well be changed next year due to tweaked voting rules and an expanded Best Picture category, but it never hurts to ponder the possibilities.

FROM HOLLYWOOD CRUSH: It's coming down to crunch time, people. Today the Golden Globes have announced their list of 2010 nominees. There were some pleasant surprises, some let downs (my heart breaks at "District 9" only being nominated for Best Screenplay), but still plenty of noms that have we at Hollywood Crush pretty darn excited.
First and foremost, both Anna Kendrick and Vera Farmiga got nominated for their outstanding roles in "Up in the Air" (press play above to hear Anna talk about her role). While it's unsurprising, the news bodes well for the two in terms of Oscar talk. However, they're up against some pretty stiff competition with Mo'nique in "Precious," and Julianne Moore and Penelope Cruz are never actors to be taken lightly.

The Golden Globes air January 17th on NBC. Make sure you stick with MTV News for the latest coverage leading up and during the awards ceremony!
The 2010 Golden Globe nominations hit this morning. As per usual, this triggered a stream of reactions from celebrities and the press that covers them. You can't have an awards show without a little bit of post-nomination griping. Which of course paves the way for post-win griping. As you might expect, eyes are primarily focused on the Globes' two biggest categories: Best Drama and Best Comedy/Musical. So that's the first one we're going to consider too: what's right, what isn't, who's deserving, who's notably absent... Read More...
The nominations for the 2010 Golden Globes were released this morning. We knew they were coming of course, but that didn't stop the surprises. MTV's Eric Ditzian considered the possibility yesterday that "Avatar" would join the more predictable Best Drama nominees as a wild card, but I'm still somewhat surprised to see it on the list. It's a great movie and director James Cameron deserves the accolades he's receiving, but I would have preferred to see one of the more original contenders, such as "District 9" or "Moon" in its place. Of course, this speaks to the monumental year that Hollywood has had; it's hard to make a case that any Best Drama Contender doesn't deserve to be there.
The Best Musical/Comedy category is a bit more discussion-worthy. Where on earth is "Zombieland"? Or hell, how about "The Informant!"? I would have taken either of those over "The Hangover," which seems to be there purely for its surprising summer box office performance. It was an okay movie, with a few high points, but not exactly what I'd call one of the best comedies of the year. Hit the jump for the full list of nominations. Read More...
It's fitting that a pair of dark rags-to-riches stories in which the underdog endures great pain to rise up triumphed Sunday night at the Golden Globes. The biggest winner of the evening, "Slumdog Millionaire," overcame odds just to get made and has built the kind of word-of-mouth buzz most filmmakers only dream of, especially for a small picture filmed in the slums of Mumbai.
And especially on a night when it was up against some major Hollywood heavy hitters like "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "Doubt" and "Frost/Nixon," all of which were shut out of the major categories. Read More...
Pop the bubbly and prepare to watch HBO win every dang "miniseries" category because The Golden Globes are back! After last year's SAG-strike-press-conference-debacle, the glitz and glamour (and drunken celebrities) are set to honor the best in movies and television, and I cannot wait to dissect every awkward TelePrompTer read, every self-involved acceptance speech and every hilarious audience cutaway reaction shot. Oh, and I guess I'll talk about who wins, too.
Who will be this year's Liz Taylor? Will "Slumdog Millionaire" top Brad Pitt as a pepaw? What on earth is Mickey Rourke going to wear? (Heck, what on earth is Mickey Rourke going to do??) All these questions and more will be answered as we watch tonight's Golden Globes together. Let's do this thing!
7:58 pm: This is my first time watching an awards show in HD. This is going to be enlightening!
7:59 pm: Okay, I just switched over from E! and Tiki Barber is co-hosting the NBC Golden Globes red carpet special? I wonder if that means Billy Bush will one day report from the sidelines of the Super Bowl.
