12 Years A Slave and American Hustler lead 71st Golden Globe nominations

12 Years A Slave, a film about a New York State-born free negro who was kidnapped in Washington, D.C. in 1841 and sold into slavery, got seven nominations in the 71st annual Golden Globes. Its stars (in photo, L-R), Michael Fassbender, Lupita Nyong’o, and Chiwetel Ejiofor all got acting nods.


American Hustle and 12 Years a Slave lead the Golden Globes 2014 nominations with seven nods each.

David O. Russell’s American crime drama American Hustle is up for a slew of the top prizes, including Best Director for O. Russell, Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, and Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for Amy Adams.

Critically-acclaimed historical drama 12 Years a Slave—based on the real life story of Solomon Northup, a free African/American who was kidnapped and sold into slavery in 184—is up for Best Motion Picture - Drama and Best Screenplay.

Its lead male star Chiwetel Ejiofor is competing for Best Actor in a Drama, and Steve McQueen is in line for Best Director in a Motion Picture among the film’s other nods.


Nebraska follows close behind with five nominations, including Best Actor in a Musical of Comedy for Bruce Dern.

The space odyssey Gravity, which stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, earned four nominations; as did Somali-pirate thriller Captain Phillips.

Competing against Chiwetel in the Best Actor in a Drama category are Idris Elba for Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, Tom Hanks for Captain Phillips, Matthew McConaughey for The Dallas Buyers Club, and Robert Redford for All Is Lost.

Meanwhile, the Best Actress in a Drama category will be contested by Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine), Sandra Bullock (Gravity), Judi Dench (Philomena), Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks), and Kate Winslet (Labor Day).

The awards are considered to be an important precursor to the Oscars, and the films are voted for by members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which organises the ceremony.

The Golden Globes ceremony—aired by NBC—will take place on January 12, 2014, and will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
