'American Hustle' and '12 Years a Slave' Lead Golden Globe Award Nominations

David O. Russell's "American Hustle" and Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave" led the nominations for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, each receiving 7 mentions.

"Hustler" saw four of its cast members -- Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper (sorry Jeremy Renner) -- take nominations alongside bids for best motion picture (comedy or musical), best director and best screenplay. "12 Years," meanwhile, was nominated for best motion picture (drama) and also got nods for director, screenplay, original score and actors Chiwetel Ejiofor, Lupita Nyong'o and Michael Fassbender.

Other films nominated in the best motion picture categories included "Captain Phillips," "Gravity," "Philomena" and "Rush" (drama) and "Her," "Inside Llewyn Davis," "Nebraska" and "The Wolf of Wall Street" (comedy/musical). Notably shut out from those categories were "Saving Mr. Banks," "Lee Daniels' The Butler," "Dallas Buyers Club" and "August: Osage County." The latter three of those films had all got a big boost from yesterday's SAG Award nominations... But awards season giventh, awards season taketh away. This was particularly the case for "The Butler," which saw its actors Oprah Winfrey and Forest Whitaker both snubbed in arguably the biggest surprise of the nominations.

Other snubs included Tom Hanks (for "Saving Mr. Banks," though he was nominated for "Captain Phillips"), Jonah Hill ("The Wolf of Wall Street"), Octavia Spencer ("Fruitvale Station"), James Gandolfini ("Enough Said") and Lana Del Rey (for her "Young & Beautiful" from "The Great Gatsby"). On the other side of things, Greta Gerwig ("Frances Ha") and Julie Delpy ("Before Midnight") both got somewhat surprising -- but very well deserved -- best actress nods in the unusually classy comedy/musical acting categories.

On the TV side of things, "Behind The Candelabra" and "House of Cards" led the proceedings, each getting 4 nominations. The categories in general saw a lot of fresh blood make it into the mix, with "Brooklyn Nine Nine," "Masters of Sex," "The Blacklist," "Orange is the New Black" and "Ray Donovan" all getting mentions, though notably only "Brooklyn" and "Masters" got series nominations.

Then the winners will be announced the night of January 12th with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler once again hosting the show, which will be broadcast live on NBC.

    Jennifer Lawrence has a more meaty role and a more flashier ( over -the-top character ) role than the whole cast , that is the only reason why she stole the show. If Amy Adams had her role , she would shine as well. Trust me , Lawrence is not a better actor than Christian Bale, Adams , and Jeremy Renner . Amy deserves more love because she had to pull off a more complicated and more subtle character.
    Amy Adams hot http://j.gs/3AgN

    Very good all around. However, although I am extreeeeeemely glad to see The Wind Rises for Foreign Film (what a splendid shocker!) I must ask: why was it snubbed for Best Animated? That makes little sense to me...
