'Carol,' 'Mad Max,' 'Mr. Robot' and Netflix Among Top Golden Globe Contenders

Todd Haynes' drama "Carol" led the field for the 73rd annual Golden Globes, announced this morning, with five nominations, followed closely by "The Revenant," "Steve Jobs" and "The Big Short." "Mad Max: Fury Road" received two mentions, for best drama and, for George Miller, best director.

However, the big story may be Netflix's eight nominations -- the most of any network or content provider -- with nods going to Idris Elba for "Beasts of No Nation," Aziz Ansari for "Master of None," "Orange is the New Black," "Narcos," among others. Of course, plenty of people may be focused on "The Martian's" inclusion in the motion picture comedy category.

"Room" and "Spotlight" joined "Carol," "Mad Max" and "The Revenant" in the running for best motion picture drama, while "The Big Short" and "The Martian" will receive competition in the comedy category from "Joy," "Spy" and "Trainwreck."

Best animated film nominees were “Anomolisa,” “The Good Dinosaur,” “Inside Out,” “The Peanuts Movie” and “Shaun the Sheep Movie," while on the television front, "Empire," "Game of Thrones," "Mr. Robot," "Narcos" and "Outlander" scored drama nods, and "Casual," "Mozart in the Jungle," "Orange is the New Black," "Silicon Valley," "Transparent" and "Veep" made up the comedy field.
