Golden Globes 2014 Nominations: American Hustle and 12 Years a Slave Get Love, Mad Men Doesn’t

This year’s batch of potential Golden Globe winners was announced at the usual ungodly hour of 5 a.m. in Los Angeles this morning, and holy Hamm’s beard are there a lot of these things. A few key notes from the film department, to start: The Wolf of Wall Street, Her, and American Hustle are all competing as comedies. (Unless they’re musicals.) Hustle and 12 Years a Slave lead in nominations with seven each. Two of the five Best Drama candidates are Ron Howard’s little-seen Rush and Stephen Frears’s littler-seen Philomena. The Butler is MIA. Martin Scorsese was snubbed in the directing category, but Paul Greengrass and Alexander Payne are in. Pixar, having won Best Animated Feature Film six of the seven years the category has existed, is out of the running for the first time. Julia Louis-Dreyfus is nominated for her lead performances in both Enough Said and HBO’s Veep. James Gandolfini, meanwhile, is nowhere to be found. (Ditto for Michael B. Jordan and his Fruitvale Station performance, as well as Woody Allen and his work on Blue Jasmine.)

Over in TV, four-time Globe winner Michael J. Fox is back on the circuit. Masters of Sex, one of Andy Greenwald’s new faves, cracked into the Best Drama field. Brooklyn Nine-Nine made the Best Comedy cut in its first season; the heralded return of Arrested Development missed out, but Jason Bateman was nominated for Best Actor. (Andy Samberg is now officially a Golden Globe nominee, too.) Amy Poehler was nominated for Best Actress for Parks and Recreation; Tina Fey and 30 Rock were shut out, so that’ll make for a nice awkward exchange between our reigning BFF cohosts. Bryan Cranston scored the requisite Breaking Bad nod, although Jon Hamm did not for Mad Men — which wasn’t recognized at all, in fact. (Meanwhile, James Spader is in the house for The Blacklist. Huh.) Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright’s work on Netflix’s House of Cards got them into the mix, as did Taylor Schilling’s starring role on Orange Is the New Black.
