With seven nominations each, 12 Years A Slave and American Hustle lead in Golden Globe Awards nominations.
Nebraska garnered five Golden Globes nominations (Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director and Best Screenplay), while Gravity received four Golden Globes nominations for Best Picture (Drama), Best Director, Best Actress (Drama) and Best Original Score (Steven Price).
Director Alfonso Cuarón said, “What a great year for cinema! I’d like to congratulate my fellow nominees and, of course, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for recognizing Gravity with four Golden Globe nominations. I had wonderful collaborators both in front of and behind the camera who took something of a leap of faith with me years ago when we set out to make this film. I share this honor with all of them.

The 2014 Golden Globe Awards nominees were announced on Thursday (Dec. 12), and while we are delighted by a few surprise nods and shaking our fists over some huge snubs, the stars who did earn noms spent their day reacting to their good news. Check out what the stars are saying about their nominations:
"I'm excited and honored that the HFPA has recognized my performance in 'Dallas Buyers Club," McConaughey says in a statement. "Ron Woodroof was a revolutionary for the human spirit, and I was blessed to tell his story. I'm looking forward to spending the evening at the Golden Globes on January 12th."
"This is a pretty great day! I feel so lucky to go to work and get paid »
The main reason to watch the Golden Globes this year is to see Tina Fey and Amy Poehler return as the awards ceremony’s hosts. They brought a fantastic sense of humor to the show last year, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association did right by signing them on as hosts for the next two ceremonies. Fresh off of this morning’s Golden Globes nominations announcement, NBC has released a trio of promos in which Fey and Poehler tease their hosting duties. Unsurprisingly, they’re quite funny. Hit the jump to watch the videos. The 71st Golden Globes will take place on January 12, 2014. »

Black British film talent tops nominations and BBC dramas also hope to carry off major wins
12 Years a Slave, a harrowing account of American slavery by the British visual artist turned film director Steve McQueen, established itself as the film to beat at the start of awards season, picking up seven nominations at the 71st annual Golden Globes.
Announced at a dawn press conference in Beverly Hills, California, the nominations were a significant breakthrough for black British film talent. McQueen was nominated as best director while Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) and Idris Elba (Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom) bagged acting nominations. Other British performers up for awards include Christian Bale (American Hustle), Kate Winslet (Labor Day), Emma Thompson (Saving Mr Banks), Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine) and Judi Dench (Philomena).
Elba and Ejiofor will be hoping for success in both the film and TV categories, with the pair also »

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are back to be our helm the Golden Globes and they're being hilarious already. Typical. The two are best friends…and/or in love with each other? Depends on whom you ask, according to the new promo below. They're dancing, singing, telling jokes and being pretty amazing. It's the biggest Hollywood party of the year and with these two hosting, anything can happen. Fey and Poehler, who earned a nom for her work on Parks and Recreation, are set to host the big show on Sunday, Jan. 12, and recently revealed what people can expect from their second stint. "We're going to encourage people to go real long on their speeches," Poehler joked, while Fey added, "I'm »
If you can get through this video of Amy Poehler and Billy Eichner harassing New Yorkers to sing Christmas carols with them and not laugh, then it is a Christmas miracle. And by miracle, we mean travesty. You have no soul. Every time we think Amy Poehler couldn't get any more amazing, something glorious like this comes along: As Carrie Underwood once said, these are a few of our favorite things: 1. Amy: "We do the jokes! We Do The Jokes!" Billy: "Get out of here, Jeff Dunham!" 2. Billy to baby: "What's his name?" "Arrow." "Arrow?! No. Not dealing with that bulls--t name." 3. Fernando. 4. "He's a Hasidic Jew! He »
If a stranger offered you a dollar to sing with them, would you do it?
Well, what if it was comedian Billy Eichner and EW guest editor and Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler screaming at you on the streets of New York to join in and finish the lyrics to some classic Christmas carols? You’d be surprised by how many people would say no. Gearing up for a brand-new season of the Fuse show Billy on the Street, Eichner and Poehler donned their gay apparel and hit the Big Apple streets. The results are both hilarious and, if »

We’ve had a bevvy of critics’ circle choices and awards such as the Screen Actors Guild, but here comes one of the gong shows considered (by some) to be a heavy hitter and that unicorn-alike mystery, the Oscar prognosticator. The Golden Globe nominees have been revealed and it’s good news for some, with others weirdly overlooked.American Hustle, 12 Years A Slave, Gravity and Her all did well, and there were a few surprises including Kate Winslet for Labor Day and The Book Thief’s score.On the TV front, poor old Mad Men is a loser once more, with Netflix’s House Of Cards scoring some potential love and, pleasingly, the excellent Masters Of Sex recognised. Though we must admit to some confusion as to why Nashville's Hayden Panettiere deserved a nom and, say, Masters’ Lizzy Caplan did not. Still: Brooklyn Nine-Nine scored two nominations, so hurrah!

My favorite awards show is the Golden Globes, specifically because the Golden Globes are completely unbeholden by the intrinsic questions of Quality and Tradition and Making Basic Coherent Sense that so bedevils other awarding bodies. Nobody really thinks the Golden Globes mean anything, and so the mere fact of their continued existence — and increasing popularity — actually grade-inflates them into meaning something. They are handed out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, »

Everyone is excited about their respective Golden Globes nominations, but Frances Ha star Greta Gerwig can be forgiven for being even more excited than most. “I’m sorry if this is incoherent, I’m just really happy!” she gushed to EW on the phone this afternoon while celebrating her first nomination.
Her Lead Actress in a Comedy nod was something of a surprise, given the small scale of the film and the May theatrical release date, but voters were clearly impressed by her portrayal of the titular Frances, a twenty-something dancer who’s struggling with friend drama and career aspirations »

Billy Eichner, the crown prince of random hollering (and the only openly gay nominee for Best Game Show Host in Emmy history), and Amy Poehler, the Golden Globe-hosting queen of almost everything else, joined forces for something spectacular: a round of Christmas caroling that brutalized the citizens of New York.
I say it all the time, but Billy’s gonzo humor remains a breath of fresh air and a one-of-a-kind head rush. You can also tell he’s really, really smart. He claims to be an enormous Meryl Streep fan but I bet his true passion for is an actress who’s a little less that universally admired. I hope he comes out as a Judy Davis/Joan Plowright/Samantha Morton superfan sometime soon. »

In a new Funny or Die video, the two comedians harass passersby by offering to pay them a dollar to Christmas carol with them, and hilarity ensues (of course). The "Billy on the Street" star and the "Parks and Rec" star have no patience for people who don't know the words to some of the most classic Christmas songs ... or people who don't know who Poehler is. Come on, she was on "Saturday Night Live," for crying out loud.
Plus, when Eichner encounters a baby named Arrow, he runs away in horror ... but not without dropping a "The Flash" shout out. And wait until their duo is made into a trio by Fernando Tom.
Watch the hilarious video below:

What do you get the gal who just picked up a Golden Globes nomination—on top of a gig co-hosting the annual awards show? If you're Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler—who received a Best Actress in a TV Comedy nomination earlier today and will be hosting the telecast alongside gal pal Tina Fey—you're totally fine with receiving any ole thing the gifter may have lying around the house. "My stance on regifting is that we have too many things in the world, nobody needs to buy anything new," the funny lady told Paper magazine. "So, I think you should regift your whole life. I think there should just be one gift and everybody just hands it to each other." Hmmm, we »

It just wouldn’t be award season without us scratching our heads over some of the decisions made by the Hollywood Foreign Press as they announce the Golden Globe nominations. Even though the show stands as a bellwether for the Academy Awards, the Globes always manage either to leave some lauded performers out of the running or to highlight some questionable choices. There are also some good surprises too, which may signal a general shift in what Hollywood wants to offer us — and what we’re demanding.
Some of the biggest films of the year, like 12 Years A Slave starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, made a huge impact with seven nominations, while fan favorites like Mad Men were nowhere to be found.
So what were the most epic surprises stemming from this morning’s nomination announcement? Browse through our gallery to see the top five shocking stories that emerged today, »

The nominations are set for the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards. Now we can get excited about the fashions, the top prize winners and the triumphant return of hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. In honor of the two funny ladies coming back to the big show, Entertainment Weekly made Fey and Poehler guest editors. Of course, the former SNL stars and close pals wasted no time with the hysterical remarks. Case and point: Fey responded that the classic duo they compare themselves to, based on chemistry, is Mary Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen. "When we're next to each other we like to hug each other a lot, like we're in the womb, and Tina's thumbprint matches my pinkie, because that's what we were »
Things seem to be going pretty well these days for Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. They are about to host the Golden Globes for the second year in a row, they’re both producing multiple shows for multiple networks, and they’re serving as guest editors of the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. But what people really want to know is: When will these Saturday Night Live/Baby Mama co-stars find a way to join forces for another TV show or movie?
During our Q&A with the pair for this special issue, the 30 Rock creator/actress and Parks and Recreation »

NBC's Parks and Recreation just finally scored its very first Golden Globes nomination, and it is literally the most incredible thing that has ever happened to the human race ever in the history of mankind! This morning's best and most unexpected surprise has us talking like Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe), and we aren't even going to apologize. So there. Parks, a fan favorite (and critics' darling) for six years strong now, scored its first nod for comedy series, and it even had some super-cool-kid company: Fox's Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which comes from the same genius mind of executive producer Mike Schur. (The show's leads, Amy Poehler and Andy Samberg also got nods) We just chatted »
If we know one thing about celebs it's that people love to throw trophies at them. Ah, the entertainment industry. It's truly a magical place. Yesterday, the nominees for the SAG Awards were released, and because we know you guys hate thinking too much, we predicted all the winners for you. Well, now it's Golden Globes nomination day, and once again, we're doing all the work for you. Here are our instant predictions for the big categories for the 2014 Golden Globes, also known as everybody drinks and if Tommy Lee Jones is there he'll probably glare at Tina Fey and Amy Poehler the whole time: Best Motion Picture, Drama: Gravity 12 Years a Slave is being showered with nominations »
Let us set the scene for you: The year is 2013. Tina Fey, popular sitcom actress from such series as 30 Rock, and Amy Poehler, noted thespian from the Criterion Collection classic Baby Mama, are hosting the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards. During one bit, the duo singled out Taylor Swift, she of seemingly endless boyfriends, and Fey joked, "You know what, Taylor Swift, you stay away from Michael J. Fox's son," then continued, "She needs some 'Me Time' to learn about herself." T.Swift, Guardian of the Light and Dark and Girl Who Only Had Two Boyfriends in 2010, decided upon a suitable punishment for this heinous crime against humanity: "Katie Couric [said] to me she had heard a »
