Golden Globe Nominees Announced

"American Hustle" and "12 Years a Slave" are tied for the most number of nominations


Nominees for the 71st annual Golden Globe Awards have been announced, with "American Hustle" and "12 Years a Slave" tied for the most with seven bids each.

The nominations announced Thursday morning by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association spread the nominations around, but the large haul for the 1970s con-artist caper and the slavery epic suggest those films may be this year's Oscar favorites.

Also in the mix are Alexander Payne's father-son road trip "Nebraska," with five nominations, including best actor for Bruce Dern. The space odyssey "Gravity" earned four nominations, as did the Somali pirate thriller "Captain Phillips."
