Golden Globe Nominations: '12 Years a Slave' and 'American Hustle' Score Big

Golden Globe Nominations: '12 Years a Slave' and 'American Hustle' Score Big

Dec 12, 2013

Nominations for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards were handed out today, and because of the separate categories for musical/comedy and drama, many of the year's best films got a chance to come hang out at the cool-kids' table, thanks to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA). 

Unlike this week's somewhat surprising SAG nominations, the HFPA brought The Wolf of Wall Street and Robert Redford back into the fold, though James Gandolfini did not receive a nomination (but his Enough Said costar Julia Louis-Dreyfus did). Surprises include Ron Howard's Rush nabbing a nomination for Best Picture (Drama) over, say, Dallas Buyers Club, the latter of which scored acting nominations (for Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto) instead. Also noticeably absent were both Saving Mr. Banks (save for Emma Thompson's nomination) and Lee Daniels' The Butler.

Check out all the big movie nominations below. The Golden Globe Awards will air live on NBC on January 12, 2014.
