Before we get to the Oscars, honoring the year's finest of the Hollywood big screen, and prior to seeing the Emmys, marking the top winners of the small screen, we have the Golden Globes, combining both film and television into one awards ceremony.

This year's Golden Globe Awards broadcast takes place on Sunday, January 8, as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association recognizes 2016's best movies, TV shows, actors, actresses, musical scores, and more. Knowing who wins at the Globes often serves as a predictor of who'll win an Academy or Emmy Award.

It helps when you can brush up on episodes you haven't seen yet or films you missed in theaters so far. We've compiled this resource so you can know where to watch a few of this year's nominated TV shows and movies.
