Now that the Golden Globes are done, it’s time to move on to the main event.

Two days ahead of Thursday’s Oscar nominations announcement, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences cast the voice of God to deliver a goose-bump inducing “We All Dream In Gold” ad for awards telecast.

Actor Morgan Freeman, who played the supreme being in “Bruce Almighty,” lends his voice to the 30-second promo — which unveils the theme for the 88th annual installment of the awards.

“Some dream of falling in love, others dream of galaxies far, far away, and some dream of changing the world,” he says as a montage spools of clips from “Creed,” “Room,” “Trainwreck,” “The Martian,” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Joy” and “Steve Jobs.”

The Imagine Dragons song “Dream” provides the score.
