  1. ‘12 Years a Slave,’ ‘American Hustle’ Lead Golden Globe Nominations

    Tales of mobsters and Southern indenture lead the pack with seven nominations each for the awards that often serve as a precursor to the Oscars. One critic calls 12 Years a Slave a clear favorite for Best Picture (OZY profiled director Steve McQueen.) Television newcomers “Masters of Sex” and ”Brooklyn Nine-Nine” also received nods. Funny ladies Tina Fey and Amy Poehler (who was also nominated for her role in TV’s “Parks and Recreation”) host the awards show Jan. 12.
