The 2014 Golden Globe Nominations Are Here

Golden+Globes+statuesEarlier today, the Hollywood Foreign Press announced the nominees for the upcoming Golden Globes celebration.

Interesting takeaways, Gravity, 12 Years a Slave, and American Hustle seem to be the titles to beat in the film categories wracking up a host of nominations in almost all categories. Meanwhile on the television front, welcome Netflix to your first big coming out party! Between House of Cards, Orange is the New Black and Arrested Development, Netflix is in close competition with HBO for some of the most acclaimed television of the year (can we even call it television at this point?) Also, what is Idris Elba doing being nominated for best actor in a tv movie or miniseries with Luther? Are they just now becoming aware that Luther exists? and in what capacity could it ever be considered a miniseries? They are into their third season? If its BBC and it isn’t Downton Abbey, it is a miniseries? Is that it?  I’m happy he is nominated because he is awesome and so is the show, but if it qualifies for a tv movie or miniseries, then dammit, give it more recognition.

Anyway, here are the nominees coming out of today’s announcement:
