Golden age musical La La Land, coming-of-age drama Moonlight and American Crime Story top the 2017 Golden Globe nominations.

Damien Chazelle’s sang love story about a lonely jazz pianist and an aspiring actress got seven nominations including best actor, actress and director.

Barry Jenkins’ indie sensation Moonlight followed closely with six nods including best drama, screenplay and director.

Manchester by the Sea, Florence Foster Jenkins and Hell Or High Water followed with five, four and three nominations respectively.

Miles Ahead actor Don Cheadle, Trolls star Anna Kendrick and Laura Dern announced the nominations on Monday.

The ceremony awards the best of 2016 in both film and television.

In the small screen, FX’s true crime anthology series The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story led with five nominations.

AMC’s crime drama The Night Manager was close behind with four nominations, while Black-ish, The Crown, The Night Of, This Is Us and Westworld grabbed three each.

It’s been a good year for HBO – the cable network led the list comfortably with 14 nods, mostly due to their two hit shows Westworld and Game Of Thrones.

The most unexpected TV snubs for this year’s ceremony include Kit Harrington, Anthony Hopkins and rising star Millie Bobbie Brown.

In film, Stephen Frears’ Florence Foster Jenkins is the only nominee that has been excluded from Oscar predictions so far.

The film’s lead actress Meryl Streep will receive the Cecil B DeMille award for career achievement at the event.

The Globes are voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, an intimate group of roughly 100 foreign journalists.

There are a few differences between the Golden Globes and the Academy when it comes to nominations.

Unlike the Oscars, the Globes segregate dramatic films from comedies and musicals.

They also do not award documentaries or categories such as film editing or cinematography.

The 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon and air on 8 January.
