The Golden Globes is known for kicking off award season in Hollywood but this year things will look very different.

The pandemic meant that today's nominations for the 78th Golden Globes were announced virtually for the the first time ever.

Usually held in Los Angeles, this year's awards will take place online on February 28 and will be hosted by comedians Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

Chloe Zhao has been nominated for the film 'Nomadland', Emerald Fennell for 'Promising Young Woman' and Regina King for 'One Night in Miami'.
