Return of the Nerds and 2017 Golden Globes

Hello, Nerds! After a well needed rest, we’re back on schedule starting tomorrow. That being said, the Golden Globes are still being hosted tonight (regardless of TNL’s own time frame, obviously). So here we are.

Below we’ve listed all the nominations for tonight’s awards and have bolded the nerdy options for your viewing pleasure. That doesn’t mean we think these are the best candidates for each category, but it’s always nice to root for our own. Bolding was awarded to actors who have become iconic as a nerdy character (say Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man), to actors nominated for interpreting nerdy characters, or to movies dealing with nerdy topics.

If we missed any, let us know. And may the odds be ever in your nerdy favor.
