Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, start warming up!

Thursday morning brought the Golden Globe nominations from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, in anticipation of when the two women will host the freewheeling ceremony come next month.

As expected, there were major showings for the movies 12 Years a Slave, which led Wednesday’s Screen Actors Guild nominations, and American Hustle, already winner of the New York Film Critics Circle Award for best film.

Those two films received seven nominations each, including those for 12 Years‘s Chiwetel Ejiofor and Hustle‘s supporting actors Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper.

Completely shut out, to the surprise of many, were SAG nominees Oprah Winfrey and Forest Whitaker – in fact, everything and everybody with anything to do with Lee Daniels’ The Butler.

The 71st annual Golden Globes will air live on NBC on Sunday, Jan. 12. For a complete list of nominations, click here.
