Globes by the numbers

The 73rd Annual Golden Globes air this Sunday at 8 pm on CTV and CTV GO and that means we’re in for a night of huge wins, possible upsets, tearful speeches, awkward maneuvering around tables, and a whole lot of inappropriate (and hilarious) jokes from host Ricky Gervais.

With so many amazing films and TV shows nominated this year, we thought we’d break down the big show by the numbers.
