A Crash Course In The Movies Nominated For Golden Globes

Now that we've all accepted the fact that another white guy will be hosting another awards show in 2017, it's time to get over it and start really understanding all the movies that are nominated for a Golden Globe.

In total, there are 23 movies (excluding foreign language and animated films) nominated for a Golden Globe — that's a lot of movies to get familiar with in less than two weeks. The films range from obscure (The Lobster) to mainstream (La La Land), from drama (Fences) to comedy (War Dogs).

While there's no better way to expand your film knowledge than by going to see the films themselves (Seriously, go! Seeing movies is fun!), it's the end of the year and we're all busy, so I've summed up everything you need to know about the nominated actors and films right here. These are the finest films of the year, so let's get to know them a little better. All this new knowledge will also come in handy when the Oscars roll around in February.

The question remains: Are you ready to be a millennial movie critic? A patron of the arts? A cinephile, as they say? If so, grab your popcorn, plug in your headphones, and let's get started.

The 74th annual Golden Globes air Sunday, January 8 at 8:00 p.m. EST on NBC.
