Nominees have been announced for the 71st edition of the Golden Globes, with 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle topping the list with seven nominations each. And, while no Latin American productions made the final cut this year - including the much hyped Chilean film Gloria by Sebastián Lelio - there is a noteworthy presence of Latino talent.
Coming in at third on the list for most nominations, Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity is not surprisingly competing in four different categories. Recently named Time Magazine's Movie of the Year, Gravity will doubtless have a strong showing in the Best Picture, Best Director, Best Performance by an Actress - Drama and Best Score categories.
Other Latino nominees include Guatemalan-born actor Oscar Isaac (ne Oscar Isaac Hernández of Guatemalan mother and Cuban father, pictured), whose performance in the Coen Brother's Inside Llewyn Davis garnered him a nomination in the Best Performance by an Actor - Comedy or Musical category; Colombian Actress Sofia Vergara's much talked-about role as the oblivious Gloria Delgado Pritchett on Modern Family earned her a nomination in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role - TV category; and finally, the Mexican-born Kenyan Lupita Nyong'o will be competing in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role - Drama category for her role as Patsey in Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave.
The winners of the 71st edition of the Golden Globes, presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, will announced at a ceremony in Beverly Hills on January 12, 2014.
