January officially marks the start of Hollywood event season and it looks set to be an interesting kick-off next year with the Golden Globes. The 2018 nominations have just been announced and whilst there's some worthy contenders in the mix, there are several surprising additions (and snubs) given the stellar year of film we've had, particularly for females. 

The biggest controversy? Patty Jenkins, the genius behind Wonder Woman which broke more than a few records, is not nominated for 'best director'. In fact, no women appear on the list at all. 

Margot Robbie is up for 'best actress in a motion picture - musical or comedy' for her role as Tonya Harding in I, Tonya, alongside Emma Stone, Judi Dench and Helen Mirren. The 'best performance by an actress in a motion picture — drama' is a strong category too, with Jessica Chastain, Frances McDormand, Meryl Streep and Michelle Williams vying for the prize. 

On the TV side of things, Big Little Lies scooped six nominations, including two in the 'best actress' category for Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman, whilst Elisabeth Moss bagged a nomination for 'best performance by an actress in a TV series - drama' for her role in The Handmaid's Tale. NBC's This Is Us only received two nominations, one in the 'best performance by an actor in a TV series — drama' category for Sterling K. Brown and one for 'best TV series — drama'. 

The Golden Globes 2018 ceremony will be held on January 7. See some of the nominations below and click here for the full list.
