The 2020 Golden Globe nominations were announced on Monday in Los Angeles, and several actors will face off against their costars in the same category.

Shows like Apple TV’s ‘The Morning Show,” as well as the new Netflix film “The Irishman,” each have two actors competing for the same award – Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon are both nominated for best actress in a drama, while Al Pacino and Joe Pesci received nominations for best supporting actor in a motion picture.

Here are six actors who will go head to head against their costars at the 2020 Golden Globes.

Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon will face off for the best lead actress in a drama award.

Although this isn’t the first time Aniston and Witherspoon have appeared together on a show – the “Big Little Lies” actress famously played the younger sister of Aniston’s character Rachel on “Friends” – it’s the first time they’re nominated for the same award.

The two currently star on “The Morning Show,” a drama from Apple TV which focuses on two morning talk show journalists (Aniston and Witherspoon) as they weather a sexual assault scandal that’s rocking their network.

From “The Irishman,” Joe Pesci and Al Pacino will face off.

Martin Scorsese’s latest film follows an Irish hit man as he adjusts to mob life – with the help of Pesci, who plays his mob mentor of sorts. Al Pacino also stars in the film as notorious teamster leader Jimmy Hoffa.

The film, which runs for over three hours, is directed by Martin Scorsese, and also stars Robert de Niro and Ray Romano.

Merritt Wever and Kaitlyn Dever both starred on Netflix’s “Unbelievable.”

Wever played a detective trying to solve the sexual assault case of Marie (Dever), a teenage girl whose accusations of rape aren’t taken seriously by the police. The critically-acclaimed show is based on a true story, as detailed in a ProPublica article from 2015.

You’ll find out who goes home with the gold when the Golden Globes air live on NBC on January 5 at 8 p.m. ET.
