The nominations for the 73rd Annual Golden Globes were handed out in Los Angeles this morning, with several major Oscar contenders padding their campaigns and others wondering what happened.

Todd Haynes' beautiful and mysterious love story Carol captivated the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, leading all films with five nominations including Best Picture - Drama and two in the Best Actress - Drama category (for Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett... both well-deserved).
