Awards show season is officially here, as the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards kick off live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on Sunday!
In anticipation of the night celebrating the best in film and television, ET has your official cheat sheet on everything you need to know ahead of this year's star-studded fête.

What Time Do the Golden Globes Start?: The Globes will air live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on Sunday, Jan. 8 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on NBC. The pre-show and live event will also be streamed on NBC.com.
Who's Hosting?: Jimmy Fallon will be taking the stage as host of the Golden Globes for the first time on Sunday. "We have a fun, surprise, pre-taped opening that is honestly cameo after cameo," Fallon teased to ET earlier this month. "We've already shot half of it. It's so good! I won't say anyone's name -- Ryan Reynolds. I'm just so excited. I want you to see it."

Who Is This Year's Miss Golden Globe?: For the first time ever, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has enlisted the help of three individuals to take on the role of Miss Golden Globe. Sylvester Stallone's three daughters, Sophia, 20, Sistine, 18, and Scarlet, 14, will be handing out statuettes to the winners at this year's ceremony.

Fashion Predictions: ET is anticipating the stars will pull out their best looks for the Globes, and we're predicting to see a mix of both elegant and sexy ensembles that are sure to turn heads.
The dreamy dresses Emma Stone wore in La La Land were beyond stunning (who could forget that gorgeous blue number?), so we can only hope that she'll pull some style inspiration from the film while picking out her highly anticipated red carpet look. After all, that bright yellow dress she sported while dancing with Ryan Gosling in the beginning of the flick was actually inspired by an Atelier Versace gown she wore to the Amazing Spider-Man 2 premiere in 2014.

Sarah Jessica Parker will also be in attendance, and we have no doubt that the queen of fashion will make a memorable entrance on the red carpet, hopefully in an outfit her iconic Sex and the City character, Carrie Bradshaw, would approve of.
ET also predicts Reese Witherspoon, Kerry Washington, Carrie Underwood, Priyanka Chopra and Kristen Bell will make our Best Dressed List, as these ladies never fail to impress us year after year.
We'll also be keeping our eyes on This Is Us star Chrissy Metz. She topped ET's 2016 Hot List as Best Newcomer, and now she's making her first big awards show debut. ET anticipates Metz will step out in a classy, timeless ensemble, accessorizing with jewels and, perhaps, her new beau?
What Will the Stars Be Eating and Drinking?: Earlier this month, ET got a sneak peek at the Globes' fancy menu, which Beverly Hilton's Executive Chef Alberico Nunziata describes as "Italian meets California." According to Nunziata, more than 800 pounds of Chilean sea bass, 4,000 pounds of vegetables and 600 pounds of filet mignon with a mushroom risotto will be served to the 1,300 guests, who will also have access to 1,500 Moet minis, 500 signature cocktails and 125 cases of Moet & Chandon -- the official champagne of the Golden Globes.
Who's Presenting?: Ben Affleck, Casey Affleck, Kristen Bell, Annette Bening, Pierce Brosnan, Naomi Campbell, Jessica Chastain, Leonardo DiCaprio, Gal Gadot, Hugh Grant, Jon Hamm, Chris Hemsworth, Felicity Jones, John Legend, Sting, Emma Stone, Carrie Underwood, Vince Vaughn, Carl Weathers, Kristen Wiig, Drew Barrymore, Steve Carell, Priyanka Chopra, Matt Damon, Viola Davis, Laura Dern, Goldie Hawn, Anna Kendrick, Nicole Kidman, Brie Larson, Diego Luna, Sienna Miller, Mandy Moore, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Timothy Olyphant, Chris Pine, Eddie Redmayne, Zoe Saldana, Amy Schumer, Sylvester Stallone, Justin Theroux, Milo Ventimiglia, Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon.
Notable nominations:La La Land leads the nominations pool with seven nods, followed closely behind by Moonlight, which is up for six, and Manchester by the Sea and FX's The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, both which received five nominations.
"Oh, it'd be wonderful [to be honored for La La Land]," Stone, who received a nomination for Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, told ET ahead of the nominations ceremony. "We worked hard on it, and we care about it a lot. It would be a huge honor."
In the Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy category, it's a race of the Ryans as both Ryan Reynolds and Ryan Gosling are up for the accolade for their roles in Deadpool and La La Land, respectively.
As for TV, we're predicting an extremely close race in the Best TV Series, Drama category, with The Crown, Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, This Is Us and Westworld all up for nominations.
And seeing as The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story swept the 2016 Emmys (receiving five wins back in September), we can't imagine their success at the Globes will be any different.
See the full list nominations HERE.
Guest of Honor: Eight-time Golden Globe winner Meryl Streep, who is up against Stone in the Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy category for her role in Florence Foster Jenkins, will be honored with the 2017 Cecil B. DeMille Award for her outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment. She's been nominated for a Golden Globe 30 times throughout her career -- the most of any man or woman in all film and television categories combined.
In Memoriam: The Globes typically doesn't include an "In Memoriam" segment, but considering the myriad of heartbreaking deaths we've seen in 2016, Variety reports there's been some talk about paying tribute to the beloved stars we lost, specifically Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, who will be laid to rest just two days before the show.
"We've always kept the show as a celebration and as a party, and yet we realize this is a special circumstance -- certainly with the recent passings of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds," Golden Globes executive producer Barry Adelman explained. "So we're going to acknowledge it, but we're still in discussion with exactly how we're going to do that."
