Ricky Gervais, Golden Globes

Virginia Sherwood/NBC

Awards season officially kicks off tonight with the Golden Globe Awards, and we couldn't be more excited. For months, we've been keeping track of anything and everything having to do with them—so you don't have to!

There's been a lot to digest, so we've pulled together the highlights from our extensive coverage to prepare you for the fun that will undoubtedly unfold before, during and after the big show.

Here's all you need to know:

And The Nominees Are...Really?!: The King's Speech leads with a well-deserved seven nominations, but The Tourist arrives with three (seriously?) and Burlesque dances in with two (again, seriously?). Fortunately, things are a little less shocking over on the TV side of things.

Sucks to Be True Blood: Or True Grit, Leonardo DiCaprio, Julia Roberts and that Reese Witherspoon flick How Do You Know, for that matter. They all got snubbed by the Hollywood Foreign Press.

Why Live TV Was Created: There's nothing like hearing what some famous folks have to say upon winning.

Good, But Not Great, News For Twi-Hards (OK, It's Still Pretty Great): Robert Pattinson is scheduled to a presenter, but sources close to Kristen Stewart say that, as of now, she has no plans to be at the show or the afterparties.

Yes, But Who Are You Wearing?: The only thing better than seeing stars on the red carpet.

Bomb or Not, Ricky's Back: Some reviews weren't kind to host Ricky Gervais last year, but we've still a good feeling about this one.

Johnny in Golden Globe Land?: He's got not one, but two nominations this year for his work in both The Tourist and Alice in Wonderland, but whether or not he actually attends is the big question.

Pull Out Your Scorecards: If you need a little help predicting who will win big in the TV categories, you've come to the right place. 

They're Talkin' To, And Honoring, Him: Robert De Niro will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award for his "outstanding contribution to the entertainment field." Little Fockers nothwithstanding.

Let Get This Party Started: Actually, it already has.
