“12 Years a Slave” earns seven Golden Globe nominations.

Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave” and David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” lead this year’s Golden Globe Awards nominations with seven nods each. McQueen’s harrowing film about a man forced into slavery and the daily brutalities that confronted him is up for Best Drama. And Russell’s 1970s conartist comedy is a contender for Best Musical or Comedy.

In November, PBS NewsHour talked to “12 Years a Slave” screenwriter John Ridley about how he exposed the humanity of these characters in living in an inhumane world.

The full nominee list is posted on the Golden Globe site.
