‘Carol’ leads the Golden Globe nominations

Streaming services and “Carol” are top contenders at the 73rd annual Golden Globe nominations, which the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Thursday morning.

“Carol,” the story of a romance that unfolds between two women in the 1950s, received five nominations, including Best Actress nods for co-stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. Director Todd Haynes also received a Best Director nomination.

It was followed by four nominations each for “The Big Short,” which covered the subprime housing crisis, “The Revenant,” for which star Leonardo diCaprio received a nomination, and “Steve Jobs.”

“Carol” will face off against “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “The Revenant,” “Room” and “Spotlight” for Best Motion Picture in the Drama category. The Best Motion Picture for Musical or Comedy nominees are “The Big Short,” “Joy,” “Spy,” “Trainwreck” and “The Martian,” whose nomination as a comedy drew criticism when it was announced in November.

In the television categories, Netflix led the pack with eight nominations, including Best Series nods for “Orange is the New Black” in the Musical/Comedy category and “Narcos” for Drama. HBO followed closely behind with seven nominations for television, while streaming services Hulu and Amazon also received nods. PBS miniseries “Wolf Hall” received a nomination in the Best TV Movie or Limited-Series category.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony hosted by Ricky Gervais on Jan. 10, 2016, at 8 p.m. EST on NBC. Read the full list of nominations below.
