‘La La Land’ and ‘Moonlight’ top the film noms, while Mel Gibson also scored a best director nomination. ‘People v. O.J.’ and ‘Stranger Things’ are among the big TV nominees.

The nominees for the 2017 Golden Globe Awards have arrived.

Golden Globe winners Don Cheadle and Laura Dern and Golden Globe nominee Anna Kendrick announced the film and TV contenders Monday morning from The Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles, the site of the annual awards show. (Watch video of the announcement here.)

La La Land leads the film nominees with a total of seven mentions, followed by Moonlight with six. On the TV side, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story tops with five, followed by The Night Manager with four.

The 74th Golden Globe Awards, which are voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, will be hosted by Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon and will air live on both coasts Sunday, Jan. 8, 2017 on NBC.

The ceremony is set to honor Meryl Streep with the Cecil B. DeMille Award. The actress, who has won eight Golden Globes and has been nominated 29 times, most recently starred with Hugh Grant in Florence Foster Jenkins. The film picked up four nominations, including best picture for a musical or comedy and best actress for Streep.

Fallon will emcee the annual ceremony, following Ricky Gervais, who returned last year after three previous stints, and his former Saturday Night Live castmates Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, who also hosted three times. Fallon also hosted the 2010 Emmy Awards when it aired on NBC.
