Golden Globe Noms: Who Gets What?

Slavery drama “12 Years a Slave” and 1970s con-artist caper “American Hustle” led the Golden Globe Awards nominations announced on Thursday with seven nods each, fortifying their frontrunner positions in a crowded field ahead of the Oscars.

In the coveted best drama category, “12 Years a Slave” will compete against piracy tale “Captain Phillips,” space thriller “Gravity,” adoption drama “Philomena,” and race-car rivalry “Rush.”

“American Hustle,” was nominated for best comedy or musical, alongside computer-age romance “Her,” folk singer tale “Inside Llewyn Davis,” heartland ode “Nebraska” and financial tale “The Wolf of Wall Street.”

Best acting nominations favored acclaimed actors with long careers, like 79-year-old Judi Dench for her role as a mother looking for the son she was forced to give up in “Philomena” or Robert Redford, 77, the sole cast member as a sailor in “All Is Lost.”
