Golden Globes all set to go down tonight!

Ricky Gervais is returning to the Golden Globes tonight  for his second — and final — hosting gig.

The King’s Speech leads the nominees with seven nods, including best drama and acting honors for Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter and Geoffrey Rush.

While predictable favorites like Black Swan and The Social Network also scored nominations — it’s the inclusion of critically-panned films like Burlesque and The Tourist that have created the most buzz.

In the TV categories, it’s the usual suspects like Dexter, Mad Men and 30 Rock who earned multiple nominations. Newcomers The Walking Dead and Boardwalk Empire however, are also included in the best drama category.

The full list of nominees is as follows:
