The Globes nominations were announced a day after the Screen Actors Guild award contenders. Trumbo topped that list with three nods, including best ensemble cast and best lead actor for Bryan Cranston. 

Although more high-profile than the SAGs, the Golden Globes are seen as less of an indicator of Oscars glory, as a relatively small group of non-US journalists – the Hollywood Foreign Press Association – chooses the winners, rather than the industry itself.

On the television front, no series stood out on its own, with 6 earning 3 Globes nominations each – American Crime, Fargo, Mr. Robot, Outlander, Transparent, and Wolf Hall.

Streaming pioneer Netflix led the television nominations with eight. – Rappler.com
