'12 Years A Slave' and 'American Hustle' Lead Globen Globes Nominations


The Hollywood Foreign Press announced their nominees for the 71st annual Golden Globes this morning, adding to the stream of awards announcements over the last couple of weeks. Following up on yesterday's SAG nominations and the success of Steve McQueen's 12 Years A Slave, the big question was whether or not it would be able to keep up the momentum and further solidify itself as the clear Oscar favorite. The answer is a resounding yes, as the slavery was tied for the lead with seven nominations.

12 Years A Slave was mentioned in all the categories one would expect: Best Picture Drama, Best Director, and all the key acting categories.  Performing just as well was David O. Russell's American Hustle, earning an equal number of noms including one for Best Picture Comedy. So no showdown there between those two. Paul Greengrass' Captain Phillips was a surprise with four nominations, tied with Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity.

As far as surprises go, Jason Reitman's Labor Day popped up for the first time with a Best Actress Drama nomination for Kate Winslet, while Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom earned some love with three, including one for Idris Elba. He's mostly been shut out of any awards talk, after seeming like a no-brainer for much of the year, and frankly he's probably only nominated because of the way the Golden Globes is structured. The real fun comes in the comedy categories, where Leonardo DiCaprio, Oscar Isaac, Christian Bale, Joaquin Phoenix, Bruce Dern, will compete for Best Actor. Even better is Best Actress Comedy where Julie Delpy, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Greta Gerwig, and Amy Adams will (hopefully) try to give Meryl Streep more than she can handle.
