The Golden Globes are upon us *screams*. But hang on a sec, there are a couple of names we just don't recognise on the ol' nominations list. So you're totally clued up if they end up scooping their award, here's a quick rundown on the nominees you may never have heard of...

1. Oscar Isaac

He's up for best actor in a musical or comedy for Inside Llewyn Davis while you may not know him by name you probably recognise his face from Drive and Body Of Lies. The 34-year-old has been in the biz for a decade and, as a child, dreamed of Hollywood and had a Coen brothers poster on his bedroom wall.

2. Julie Delpy

Is a French-American *takes deep breath* actress, director, screenwriter and singer-songwriter. She's a cult movie fave so if you're all about the big block busters you probably haven't heard of her. The 44-year-old won screenwirter of the year at the 2013 Hollywood Film Festival and she's tipped to scoop the Golden Globe for best actress in a comedy or musical for her part in Before Midnight.

3. Greta Gerwig

American actress Greta is also up for the best actress in a comedy or musical gong for her role in Frances Ha. The 30-year-old made her mainstream debut in 2011, in No Strings Attached and also starred alongside Russell Brand in the remake of Arthur. While her character in Frances Ha spends the movie struggling with turning 27, Greta herself was filming scenes with Helen Mirren on her 27th birthday.
