The 2016-17 awards season reaches the next level tonight when the Hollywood Foreign Press Association hands out the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards.

Jimmy Fallon will host the star-studded ceremony airing on live from coast-to-coast on NBC tonight from 5 to 8 p.m. Pacific / 8 to 11 p.m. Eastern / 7 to 10 p.m. Central from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Due to the unique nature of the Globes, tonight’s show is unlikely to give us much insight into how the Best Picture (or equivalent) contest at subsequent awards shows will go. So far, the critics groups have been split fairly evenly between Moonlight -  which received top honors from our own Alliance of Women Film Journalists, one of the two critics groups I vote with, and the Los Angeles Film Critics Association – and La La Land – which snared the best of the year designation from the Oklahoma Film Critics Circle, the other group that counts me as a voting member, and the New York Film Critics Circle.

Since the HFPA has two best picture categories – Best Motion Picture, Drama, and Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy – it’s unlikely to break any of the deadlock between Moonlight and La La Land. They’re not even competing head-to-head and will likely snare the trophies in their respective categories.

In the last 68 years, the winner of the Golden Globe for Best Film Drama went on to win the Oscar 35 times, and the winner for Best Comedy or Musical added an Oscar 13 times. In only 22 years a Golden Globe winner did not win a Best Picture Oscar, about a third of the time, according to the HFPA. The last time for a dual win was 2014, when 12 Years a Slave, Golden Globe winner for drama also won the Oscar. The Golden Globe winners in the last two years did not win an Oscar.

This year, HFPA voters distributed the movie nominations generously: 34 movies received at least one nomination, 17 of them received more than one, with La La Land leading (7 noms), followed by Moonlight (6), and Manchester by the Sea (5).

The Globes might actually be a better indicator of how Hollywood’s entire awards structure has responded to the #OscarsSoWhite controversy of the past few years. Again, the Globes have twice the categories as the Oscars, honoring the best lead and supporting players in both drama and musical/comedy films. But this year’s fields are refreshingly diverse with nominees like Loving‘s Ruth Negga, Fences‘ Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, Hidden Figures‘ Octavia Spencer, Moonlight‘s Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris and Lion‘s Dev Patel competing.

While most of the winners won’t be revealed until the show, the HFPA already has announced that eight-time Golden Globe-winner Meryl Streep is not only a nominee for her title turn in Florence Foster Jenkins, but she also will be tonight’s recipient of the 2017 Cecil B. DeMille Award. It couldn’t happen to a more accomplished, iconic woman, so cheers for that.
