Nominations for the 71st annual Golden Globes are announced

In a busy week for major award nomination announcements, one of the biggest award shows of them all announced their nominees this morning. The 71st annual Golden Globes will take place on Jan 12, 2014 and will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The awards are given out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

There are some great inclusions in this year's Golden Globe list. "12 Years a Slave" and "American Hustle" lead all movies with seven nominations a piece and both look like front-runners for the Oscars. "Philomena" won a surprise nomination for Best Picture - Drama, although the inclusion of Judy Dench for Best Actress - Drama should come as no surprise. Also, "The Wolf of Wall Street" got some love, but was oddly nominated in the Best Picture - Musical or Comedy category (while Leonardo DiCaprio got a much-deserved Best Acting nod).

The Globes will give out their lifetime achievement award, the Cecil B. DeMille Award, to Woody Allen this year. They also showed some love for his most current film, "Blue Jasmine," with Cate Blanchett and Sally Hawkins each scoring a nomination even though the film itself was snubbed in the Best Picture - Comedy or Musical category.

Then don't forget "Nebraska," which earned five total nominations as well. Bruce Dern is much deserving in the Best Actor category, as is supporting actress June Squibb. The film also was noticed in the screenplay, director (Alexander Payne) and Best Picture - Comedy or Musical category.

Perhaps the most amazing and fulfilling of all, Greta Gerwig (Frances Ha) and Julie Delpy (Before Midnight) were both recognized in the Supporting category for their work in two smaller, scarcely seen films that were released early in the year. Kudos to both of them and to the Hollywood Foreign Press for remembering these amazing performances.

On the TV side of things, what a joy to learn that Tatiana Maslany was nominated for Best Actress - Drama for her work as multiple characters in "Orphan Black." It's the best show that you probably aren't currently watching, but should be.
