The 2014 Golden Globe nominees were announced today, and it looks like 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle—two movies that deftly capture two very different moments in American history—are the top contenders. With seven nominations each, the dramatic films are neck-and-neck competitors for Golden Globe (and, most likely, Oscar) glory.
Other notable nods in the Best Motion Picture lineup include blockbuster hits Gravity and Captain Phillips, as well as the Venice Film Festival winner for Best Screenplay, Philomena. Upcoming films Her and The Wolf of Wall Street also made the cut, rounding out a list of dramas and tearjerkers.
And let’s not forget our favorite (and most stylish) leading men and ladies. Cate Blanchett received a Best Actress nod for her role in Woody Allen’s acclaimed Blue Jasmine. (Her character’s collection of Chanel jackets may or may not deserve its own award.) Leonardo DiCaprio is nominated for Best Actor for The Wolf of Wall Street, and rising red-carpet star Lupita Nyong’o is up for Best Supporting Actress for her role in 12 Years a Slave. Jennifer Lawrence’s turn as a sexy housewife in American Hustle also earned her a Best Supporting Actress nomination. Lawrence will likely step out in Dior for the awards show, but we’re really feeling the messy updos and plunging halter dresses she wears in the film.
See the full list of nominees below, and tune into NBC on Sunday, January 12, to see our favorite funny girls Tina Fey and Amy Poehler host the show live.
