Amazon Prime Video and Netflix haven't existed in their current states for too long, so the fact they've just garnered 20 Golden Globe nominations between them is quite an achievement.

In terms of nominations for TV shows, it's fairly even. But Amazon is ahead on the film front, with its drama 'Manchester by the Sea' picking up five noms of its own.

The film stars Casey Affleck as a handyman dealing with family woes. It's nominated for Best Motion Picture, Best Performance by an Actor (twice), Best Director and Best Screenplay.

Another Amazon film, 'The Salesman', was nominated in the foreign language film category.

'Transparent' and 'Mozart in the Jungle' were nominated for Best TV Series and Best Actor in a TV Series (in the comedy category) for Gael Garcia Bernal and Jeffrey Tambor, respectively. Billy Bob Thornton was also nommed for his role in 'Goliath', as are Rami Malek and Christian Slater for theirs in 'Mr. Robot'.

So what about Netflix? 'Stranger Things' and 'The Crown' are up for Best Drama TV Series, with their respective lead actresses Winona Ryder and Claire Foy up for Best Actress. John Lithgow is also nommed, as is Bob Odenkirk for his role in 'Better Call Saul'. The film 'Divines' is also nominated.

Last year Amazon won two Golden Globes for 'Mozart in the Jungle'. The ceremony takes place on 8th January, so it'll be almost a month before we see if Amazon can repeat that feat.
