With awards season officially underway, the stars of screen and US TV are all set for the 73rd Golden Globe Awards. The Golden Globes are considered a precursor to the Oscars and an indication of who the winners of those coveted awards will be.

The stars were getting their glad rags on ahead of their big red carpet entrances at the Beverly Hills Hilton. Kate Bosworth was the first to share a photo on Instagram of her preparations. The 33-year-old Blue Crush actress shared two photos with the message 'In process.'

Katy Perry is intending to be on her best behaviour. The Roar singer said she had to "act professional" all night as she she shared a photo of the stage and the table she will be seated at.

The cast of Glee were among the first to arrive and took to the red carpet in a glamourous posse, while Wiz Khalifa wasted no time making his presence felt as he hit the red carpet in style.

Wearing a stunning blue Zac Posen gown #JaneTheVirgin's Gina Rodriguez won hearts as she brought her dad as her date on her big night. Meanwhile, British singer Sam Smith couldn't contain his excitement at the possibility of meeting Cate Blanchett. " I really want to see Cate Blanchett in person because her skin is amazing," he gushed.

Bold blues and white gowns are among the biggest fashion trends on the red carpet so far, with Eva Longoria rocking a stunning white ensemble with flower embellishments and Laverne Cox in a custom made while Elizabeth Kennedy gown. Emmy Rossum struck an elegant pose in a strapless red column dress by Armani.

And while the focus on the red carpet is on the all-important fashion statement of the stars, the real competition isfor the best films of the year. The best picture nominations have gone to Carol, Mad Max, The Revenant, Room and Spotlight.

As the stars make their way to the red carpet all eyes will be on the A list presence that includes Jennifer Lawrence, Tom Hanks, Harrison Ford, Michael Fassbender and Lady GaGa, who is expected to turn out in a characteristically outrageous outfit on the night.

But it's quite likely the person that everyone will be talking about is controversial show host British comic actor Ricky Gervais, who previously left the Yanks scandalized with his acerbic humour. The Brit has assured fans he will not hold back as he takes to the stage once more.

The Golden Globes 2016 airs on NBC at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
