If it feels like everything’s happening earlier than usual this year, you’re not wrong. With Oscar nominations already in the bag and the Golden Globes set for tonight, we’re chugging through awards season and it’s still only mid-January! There will be plenty of red carpet looks to keep you going this week, with the Globes followed by the Sundance Film Festival kicking off in chilly Park City, Utah. In between, stay tuned for an exciting week on Top Chef and the end of a beloved series in Fringe, topped off with Rob Lowe playing the sexiest lawyer around in Prosecuting Casey Anthony. Have a great week!

Sunday
70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT, NBC

Hollywood’s buzziest (and, er, buzzed) awards show is Sunday night. While in the past it’s been a big Oscar nominations predictor, with the new schedule and the noms already out, the Globes are sure to be an even more relaxed, more drunken night than usual. Hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have even created a drinking game for the evening, so put on your red-carpet finest, break open the bubbly, and tune in. Check back to EW.com for live coverage from the red carpet, the show, and all the parties.

Monday
Being Human season premiere, 9 p.m., SyFy

Vampires and werewolves abound in the hit SyFy series about four twenty-something (but supernatural everything) roommates. When we left off, Aiden had been buried alive and werewolf Ray was about to get the axe from Josh and Nora. Who survived?

Tuesday
Long.Live.A$AP, by A$AP Rocky, album released in stores and on Amazon/iTunes

A$AP Rocky (real name: Rakim Mayers) rose to fame with his mixtapes in 2011, but his first studio album hasn’t even hit the shelves — until now. EW’s Kyle Anderson gives Long.Live A$AP an “A,” saying “his major-label debut proves he’s more than a magnetic hedonist.”

Wednesday
Top Chef ‘Restaurant Wars,’ Bravo, 10 p.m.

The most fun and most brutal episode of Top Chef has arrived! Let the restaurant wars — Kristen (Atelier Kwan) vs. Sheldon (Urbano) begin! Will French or Filipino food win the day? Will Stefan (who’s on Sheldon’s team) try to take Kristen down, or will he try to sabotage his own team in an act of pure devotion to his on-screen flirtation?

Thursday
Sundance Film Festival begins

Can’t make it to Park City this year? Have no fear. Sundance is livestreaming several of its events here, plus we’ll be reporting from Main Street (and the slopes) with exclusive video and photos all week long. Just a taste of some of the movies that you can expect to be the talk of the town: jObs starring Ashton Kutcher, Lifeguard, starring Kristin Bell, and Ass Backwards, starring Happy Endings‘ Casey Wilson.

Friday
Fringe series finale, FOX, 9 p.m.

J.J. Abrams’s sci-fi drama is coming to a close this week. Are you ready to say goodbye to Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble), Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson), Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) and the rest of the Fringe crew?

Saturday
Prosecuting Casey Anthony, Lifetime, 8 p.m.

Former Brat Pack heartthrob Rob Lowe has become the go-to guy for Lifetime movies about nefarious murder cases (see also: The Drew Peterson Story). But this time, he’s on the right side of the law, playing the prosecutor building a case against accused child killer Casey Anthony.

Sunday
Girls, 10 p.m., HBO

Lena Dunham and her motley crew of hipsters are back in the second episode of the new season. If you missed the premiere due to the Golden Globes, catch up on HBO Go and then tune in. How’s married life going for Jessa (Jemima Kirke)? What’s Shoshanna’s sex life like, now that she’s rid herself of the V word? And has poor Adam recovered after last season’s accident? Remember what it was like to be 22 and check it out.
