The list of nominations for the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards (of 2014), the yearly precursor to the Academy Awards, have just been announced today - you can find all the film nominees below. The infamous Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominees this morning from The Beverly Hilton. Their selections this year are quite something, to say the least, so take a closer look below. The top nominees are Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave along with Her, Captain Phillips and Gravity, with some odd ones thrown in there like Rush and Mandela. Not a bad set of noms, but not exceptional either. Full list below!

There are some interesting picks for nominees this year, which isn't unexpected for the HFPA, but I'm still surprised to see films like Rush nabbing so many nomination spots. Then again, this is just the norm for the Globes every year. A taste of things to come with the Oscars? Or just another wacky set of highly selective Globes films this year? What do you make of the 2014 Golden Globes nominations?

Are Wolf, American Hustle, Nebraska and Her comedies?
dawko on Dec 12, 2013
Wolf and Hustle most definitely are; the others are debatable. I've been thinking lately that film and TV are in something of a "substantive comedy" phase. For example, much-lauded Breaking Bad was originally a comedy, albeit a very dark comedy that managed to have meaningful characters and an intelligent plot rather than the one trick pony joke-a-minute sitcoms that litter evening TV. I mean, I like How I Met Your Mother as much as the next guy, but it's nice to see comedies with a little, well, substance. Similarly, I loved This Is The End but it's refreshing and fulfilling on a different level to see a 'comedy' like American Hustle deliver laughs while also legitimately contending for Best Picture at various awards shows.

I think it insane that they seem to think Before Midnight is a comedy but Blue Jasmine is a drama. At the very least they are both comedies or both dramas but if I had to say one was MORE of a comedy I would say Blue Jasmine.
Christopher Roberts on Dec 12, 2013
Interesting. To me Blue Jasmine is more of a drama (especially considering Woody Allen's filmography) and Before Midnight is more of a comedy. I guess it's very subjective.

Breaking Bad has nothing, absolutely nothing in common with comedy...but then I see that you liked This is the end...I don't care anymore
dawko on Dec 12, 2013
Vince Gilligan proudly proclaimed season 1 of BB to be a dark comedy in numerous interviews...so yeah, if the producer and creator of a show thinks it's a comedy, it probably has at least a little in common with a comedy. Unless, of course, you don't care about his opinions either

FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM The Wind Rises I didn't see that one coming...

Amy Adams is nominated for her work in American Hustle, not in Her.

Very happy for The Great Beauty, Her, Blue Jasmine and Before Midnight.

No love for Ed Sheeran's song 'I See Fire' from 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' - The song should of been a shoe-in for a nomination at least 🙁
