BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - Film and television stars alike are gearing up for this Sunday's 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are set to host the ceremony for a second time, after last year's show garnered high ratings and reviews. Part of their likeability could be that the duo write and improvise throughout the show, often surprising not only viewers, but the director as well.

Films "American Hustle" and "12 Years a Slave" lead the nominations, each with seven bids, including best picture, director and actor.

In the best dramatic film category, "Slave" is up against "Captain Phillips," "Rush," "Gravity" and "Philomena." In the best musical or comedy film category, "American Hustle" faces "Her," "Nebraska," "Inside Llewyn Davis" and "The Wolf of Wall Street."

In TV land, the best TV drama series nominees are "Breaking Bad," "Downton Abbey," "The Good Wife," "Masters of Sex" and Netflix's "House of Cards." The comedy contenders are "The Big Bang Theory," "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," "Modern Family" and "Parks and Recreation."

The Golden Globe Awards, voted on and presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, will air live on NBC at 8 p.m. EST.
