Tina Fey, Amy Poehler return as hosts of 71st annual Golden Globe awards

Among the nominees included many big names (Cate Blanchett, "Blue Jasmine"; Judi Dench, "Philomena"; Tom Hanks, "Captain Phillips"; Kate Winslet, "Labor Day," Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, "August: Osage County," Joaquin Phoenix, "Her"; Matthew McConaughey, "Dallas Buyers Club," Julia Louis-Dreyfus, "Enough Said," Emma Thompson, "Saving Mr. Banks) and some fresh faces (Barkhad Abdi, "Captain Phillips"; Jared Leto, "Dallas Buyers Club"; Greta Gerwig, "Frances Ha"; Oscar Isaac, "Inside Llewyn Davis").

"Joel and Ethan have completely changed my life," the 33-year-old Isaac, who plays guitar and sings in the film, said of the Coens. "There's a reason why that happens to so many actors who are involved in their movies."

Gerwig, who plays a young, meandering New York dancer in "Frances Ha," said: "When the phone rang this morning, I silenced it and I thought, UGH, who do I owe money to?"

The last film of 2013 to screen, Scorsese's three-hour financial industry extravaganza had been one of the biggest question marks this awards season. It earned a nomination for Leonardo DiCaprio's performance as an out-of-control Wall Street trader, along with the best picture nomination.

TV nominations

A movie that could have been a theatrical release, Steven Soderbergh's Liberace drama "Behind the Candelabra," topped the Globes' television nominations. The HBO film helped the cable channel yield a leading nine nominations among TV networks.

The digital platform Netflix, though, emerged as a new challenger with six total nods. The subscription service's first major foray into original programming, the political thriller "House of Cards," tied "Candelabra" with four nominations. "House of Cards," produced by David Fincher and starring Kevin Spacey, is also a product of filmmakers who turned to the small screen.
