It looks like this year's Golden Globes will make history. Well, they'll make history rich with awards anyway!
Period pieces lead the way this year as the swingin' 70s set American Hustle and antebellum 12 Years A Slave lead the film nominations with seven each.
This includes another nod for Jennifer Lawrence, who won last year for Silver Linings Playbook. Go gurl!
See the full list of nominees …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
As the star of the groundbreaking The Sopranos, James Gandolfini helped to usher in a new golden age of television.
So his tragic loss had to be honored at the 2013 Emmy Awards.
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see Nurse Jackie star Edie Falco fight to hold back the tears as she says goodbye to her longtime TV husband.
So, so sad.
If you've never heard of Merritt Wever, you probably do now!
She was the actress who won the first award at the Emmy Awards tonight, winning Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in Nurse Jackie.
And, when we were waiting to hear her give a lovely speech thanking her parents, the crew and, we assume, Edie Falco, she instead got on stage, murmured one word, then dashed off stage!
Shortest speech in Emmy history??
That's too bad because she did look lovely in her high-waisted satin black and white gown, deep red lipstick, drop earrings, and a shoulder-length wavy bob.
Here's hoping we hear more insightful Merritt Wever speeches in the future!

She did it!!! She's the funniest gal in the land!
Julia Louis-Dreyfus just won the Emmy for being the most Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series!
The win is even more impressive considering this year's stellar cast of nominees!
She beat out Laura Dern on Enlightened, Lena Dunham on Girls, Edie Falco on Nurse Jackie, Amy Poehler on Parks and Recreation, and Tina Fey on 30 Rock.
With a little help from her left-hand-man/ Emmy winner Tony Hale, Julie's speech reminded us why she's still one of the funniest gals in the biz! (above)
Congratz, gurl! You should be proud your hard and HIGHlarious work has paid off!
Nurse Jackie changed out of her signature scrubs to go completely glam at the Emmy Awards!
The super talented Edie Falco dazzled in blue Escada, featuring a tasteful front slit and fabulously flattering neckline!
The actress paired the seksi look with silver accents, including a fierce cuff and strappy sandals!
Forget about being addicted to pain killers, Jackie! We can't quit this hot look!

There's been some controversy over this, so allow us to clear the air…
With the passing of such well-known TV personalities as Cory Monteith and James Gandolfini, this year's Emmy Awards are trying something a little different.
In addition to the classic In Memoriam segment, the show will also be host to a special honor for a few stars. Host Neil Patrick Harris says:
"We've come up with this idea – five different people that we chose sort of from different areas of television are being spoken about by people who were important to them, not in a pitying way, but I think in a respectful, classy way that will make you remember their life in a positive, forward-momentum kind of style."
Cory and James will be remembered by their costars, along with three other TV legends- All In The Family's Jean Stapleton, Mork & Mindy star Jonathan Winters, and Family Ties producer Gary David Goldberg.
But the new special honors have sparked some controversy. Not everyone is happy with the choice of stars being honored. Jack Klugman's son Adam says:
It has been an unusually sad year considering all the great men and women in the industry that we've lost.
We already reported on how Cory Monteith would receive a special tribute in the In Memoriam section of this year's Emmys, but now that we've heard that Jane Lynch will be offering her words of remembrance, we know it's going to an especially emotional night.
Likewise, who better to send off the late, great James Gandolfini on Sunday night than his onscreen wife and co-star from The Sopranos, Edie Falco?
Also honored on this weekend's telecast will be All in the Family's Jean Stapleton, Family Ties' producer Gary David Goldberg, and Mork and Mindy's Jonathan Winters.
Sunday is just going to be just too much to handle. We miss all of these fine people so, so much.
