2014 Golden Globe Nominations: '12 Years a Slave', 'American Hustle' & 'Breaking Bad'

Last year's Golden Globes saw Argo, Les Misérables and Django Unchained all claiming top awards from amongst a pool of serious contenders, while Homeland dominated the TV awards.

Now a whole new year of great entertainment, both on the big screen on the small one, has gone by and once again it's time to find out who came out on top. The 71st Golden Globes Awards ceremony will be held exactly one month from now, with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returning once more as hosts.

The Screen Actors Guild Awards nominees were announced earlier this week, with 12 Years a Slave and The Butler at the front of the pack, and HFPA President Theo Kingma today announced the nominations for the 2014 Golden Globes. Read on to find out if your favorite movies and TV shows of the year made the cut.
