LOS ANGELES: Golden Globe organizers unveil nominations for their annual movie awards show Thursday, as Hollywood’s honors season gets into full swing with a bumper cast of hotly-tipped contenders. Historical drama “12 Years a Slave” got an early boost on the eve of the Globes nominations, topping the Screen Actors Guild (SAGs) nods Wednesday with four. But this year’s race risks being particularly crowded, with a string of films winning critical acclaim, ranging from 3D sci-fi spectacle “Gravity” to historical epics like “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” and crime drama “American Hustle.” “This is easily the best year I’ve seen,” said Variety’s awards editor Tim Gray, who has worked at the industry journal since 1981.” –AFP
