Nominations for the 77th Golden Globes Awards are out, and some fan-favorite stars might be walking away with a golden statuette next month. On Monday morning, Last Man Standing's Tim Allen, This Is Us' Susan Kelechi Watson, and The Alienist's Dakota Fanning assembled at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles to announce this year's nominees.

Many were obviously elated to receive their nods, including Hustlersstar Jennifer Lopez, who said she "could not be prouder" to be recognized." Taylor Swift, nominated in the original song category, wrote, "It's so cool that one of the most fun, fulfilling creative experiences I've ever had is being honored in this way by the HFPA."

The 2020 Golden Globes ceremony airs Sunday, Jan. 5 on NBC and will be hosted by Ricky Gervais.
