Who almost starred in La La Land before...

It can feel like you’re drowning after awards season.

I'm reached a point where any mention of pop culture instinctively causes me to run and hide.

We're all overwhelmed. There are so many great motion pictures to go and see but it's too complicated and would be easier to stay at home and see none of them.

We're busy here at Mamamia. We have Instagram filters to apply. And we know you do to.

There's no time to WATCH a movie, let alone sit down and research what it's about, what the reviews are like, and whether it's still in the cinema or not.

So we've thrown together a 2017 Golden Globes movie 'cheat sheet' of sorts. The movies you can still see at the cinema. What they were nominated for. And what they're about.

Take a peek, friends...
