Golden Globes: 12 Years a Slave, American Hustle Earn Top Nominations, Tatiana Maslany has Arrived!

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced on Thursday its nominees for the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards that honors the year’s best in film and television in musical/comedy and drama.

This year’s nominations are led by epic drama 12 Years a Slave  and the highly anticipated abscam dramedy American Hustle with seven nominations each including Best Picture honors in, respectively, the drama and musical or comedy categories.  On the other hand, Downton AbbeyGirls, and the final season of AMC’s Breaking Bad all lead the pack for television that also includes a couple of shows from the groundbreaking internet streaming media Netflix, scoring nominations for critically acclaimed House of Cards.

Awards shows will never be the same without a few snubs.  The biggest of which were HBO’s Game of Thrones, AMC’s Mad Men and The Walking Dead, and Showtime’s Homeland including Clare Danes.  In replace of Danes comes my favorite breakthrough actress of the year in television — BBC America’s Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany!  I tell you, she really deserves to be nominated for her role(s) in Black.  I guess the trend in this awards season is the emergence of the new breed of television dramas, pushing away the other well-loved, age-old shows.

The Golden Globe Awards 2014 will be held on 12 January 2014 and will be hosted again by the dyamic-duo in comedy, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
