If there was any denying Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Oscars potential, his seven Golden Globes nominations for Birdman should quell that.

The Michael Keaton–starrer trumps all musical/comedy and drama nominees on the film and television side, with chances to take home the gold for best motion picture (musical or comedy), best director, and best screenplay. Those could-be accolades mirror the film’s success on the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards ballot where it is up for four of six film honors.

The 72nd annual Golden Globes, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, will air live on NBC on January 11, 2015. Tune in to see if Birdman—or The Grand Budapest Hotel, or Into the Woods, or Selma, or The Affair, or Girls—takes flight.
