The Golden Globes will air Sunday night on NBC. Here is what to look for when watching.

1. Nominees snubbed by Oscars

"Argo" director Ben Affleck and "Zero Dark Thirty" director Kathryn Bigelow were both passed over for Oscars even though their films were nominated and they were considered favorites for the win. They have, however, been nominated at the Golden Globes, and the pressure is on now that it may be their only shot at award season victory.

2. Poehler and Fey as hosts

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host this year's award show. The funny ladies and real life best friends have worked together many times before and it remains to be seen if hosting should be added to their long list of accomplishments.

3. Surprising nominees

Romantic comedy "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" is nominated for best picture, comedy or musical. The film's stars, Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor were both nominated for their roles in the film.

Bill Murray was also nominated for his role as Franklin Roosevelt in "Hyde Park on Hudson," to much surprise.

4. Oscar momentum

The Oscars may be a while away and its best picture race is still wide open. The winner Sunday, however, may build momentum.

The best picture, drama category is widely believed to be between "Lincoln" and "Zero Dark Thirty" while the best picture, musical or comedy category is believed to be between "Les Miserables" and "Silver Linings Playbook."



Craig Gillespie directed this true story about "the most daring rescue mission in the history of the U.S. Coast Guard.”
