One of the exciting things about the New Year is Hollywood’s  awards season, a time where the best motion pictures and performances in the industry are recognized and celebrated. The Golden Globe Awards owns a special distinction for being the first awards of the season, thereby setting the tone for the rest of the season.

On Sunday, the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, where yet again, our favorite movie stars came out to honor this tradition and give us a taste of the glitz and glamour that we love to see.

In recent times, we’ve seen several talented African actors and actresses deliver breakout performances that earned them a seat at the table and the bragging rights to being a Golden Globe nominee. Here, Face2Face Africa takes a look at the Africans who have been nominated for one of Hollywood’s most coveted awards.
