Tonight, all the best and brightest in film and television descend upon the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hill, California for the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards.

The Golden Globes have always been known as a precursor to the Oscars, so don’t be surprised if you see some of these same names walk away with statues when the Oscars come on March 2, 2014.
