Some of the UK's biggest names in film and TV are being recognised at the Golden Globes this weekend. 

The 79th annual awards show will celebrate talent from all over in a luxurious ceremony at The Beverly Hilton hotel and it will come as no surprise that some brilliant Brits have been nominated. 

The ceremony is set to look a bit different this year with no red carpet and all guests being required to show proof of vaccination (including a booster) and a negative PCR test within 48 hours. 

The stars will also need to be masked and socially distanced at all times during the Los Angles ceremony on Sunday, January 9.

While the award show organisers have revealed that there won't be an audience again this year, the Golden Globes still promises a glamourous night ( and hopefully a few British wins!).
