The 2014 Golden Globes Nominations! ‘American Hustle’ and ’12 Years a Slave’ Lead the Pack

2014 Golden Globes Nominations

The 2014 Golden Globes nominations are in and we already can’t wait for the awards ceremony! While the Oscars ceremony has Ellen DeGeneres hosting, comedic duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are returning to host the Globes, which is awesome if you saw the hilarious job they did last year. But enough of that, let’s get down to the list of nominees!

American Hustle‘ and ‘12 Years a Slave‘ were the big winners in the movie categories, with a total of seven nominations each. ‘Nebraska‘ received five nominations while ‘Captain Phillips‘ and ‘Gravity‘ tied for third with four nominations. Notable snubs include Martin Scorsese not getting nominated as Best Director for ‘Wolf of Wall Street‘ and ‘The Butler‘ was completely shut out after a strong performance at the SAG Awards nominations. Despite two acting awards for Julia Roberts and Meryl Street, ‘August: Osage County’ wasn’t nominated for Best Picture, which could seriously hurt its promises at the Oscars. Also interesting was the lack of Pixar – ‘Monsters University‘ was passed over as Best Animated Feature in favor of ‘Frozen,’ a Disney animated film made outside of Pixar.

Before you get too excited or too upset, the Golden Globes have been fairly unreliable as a predictor of Oscar success, sharing a Best Picture winner only 33% of the time since 2003 (when the Academy moved the Oscar ceremony a month earlier).

On the TV side, ‘House of Cards,’ ‘The White Queen’ and ‘Behind the Candelabra’ both received four nominations with ‘Breaking Bad’ bringing in three in its last season.

Aziz Ansari, Olivia Wilde and Zoe Saldana joined the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to announce the 2014 Golden Globes nominations.

The 2014 Golden Globes awards ceremony will be be broadcast live on Sunday, January 12, 2014 at 5 p.m. PST/8 p.m. EST on NBC. Until then, check out the list of nominations below as they are announced.
