Hit thriller Gone Girl and sci-fi action movie Guardians of the Galaxy are among the top nominees at the 2014 New Now Next Awards.

Meanwhile, James Gunn will battle it out for the title of Best Motion Picture By a New Filmmaker for Guardians of the Galaxy, and his leading man Chris Pratt will compete for Best New Lead Film Actor, facing off with Miles Teller (Whiplash), Ellar Coltrane (Boyhood), Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner) and Ansel Elgort (The Fault In Our Stars).

Movie stars also dominated the theater acting categories, with Bryan Cranston (All The Way), Rupert Grint (It’s Only a Play) and Michael Cera (This Is Our Youth) up for Best New Broadway Lead Actor, while Rose Byrne (You Can’t Take It With You), Maggie Gyllenhaal (The Real Thing) and Michelle Williams (Cabaret) feature in the female equivalent.

In the TV section, acting nominees include Orange is the New Black‘s Lorraine Toussaint, House of Cards‘ Molly Parker, Pedro Pascal from Game of Thrones (eek!) and The Leftovers‘ Justin Theroux, while Gwen Stefani’s turn on The Voice has earned her an unexpected nod in the Best New Television Personality category.

Music nominees feature the likes of Iggy Azalea, her Fancy collaborator Charli XCX and Meghan Trainor for Best New Musician (Female), with Nick Jonas, Sam Smith and Paolo Nutini leading the way in the male category.
