The slavery epic 12 Years a Slave and the con-artist caper American Hustle lead the 71st annual Golden Globes with seven nominations each.

The nominations announced Thursday morning by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association spread the nominations around, but the large haul for American Hustle and 12 Years a Slave suggested the films may be this year's Oscar favorites.

Also in the mix are Alexander Payne's father-son road trip Nebraska, with five nominations, including best actor for Bruce Dern. The space odyssey Gravity earned four nominations, as did the Somali pirate thriller Captain Phillips.

This year's Golden Globes, to take place Jan. 12, will again be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who last year led the broadcast to a large ratings increase and a viewership of 19.7 million.

There is a commonality not often thought of when discussing, arguing about, politicizing, writing about or producing movies about enslavement. Not one of us can truthfully claim that we are of a pure line of ancestors who’ve never been enslaved or never taken into slavery another member of humankind. Slaving, slavery, captivity, war captives, servitude in one extreme or another, oppressive child labor bordering on slavery, sex slavery—it’s a profit thing, a human domineering thing still glaringly apparent in the way we cultivate animals and devour them—has been a way of life on Planet Earth for countless millennia. But of course the best stories come from those areas of the mind which are most easily titillated by gratuitous guilt, hate, cruelty real or imagined—things that touch the heart and grips the mind. A sort of self-flagellation thing plays no small part. And the profits at the box office—well, that’s the biggest thing. Evolution, by definition, is a very slow and laborious thing in virtually all forms.
