The Hollywood Foreign Press Association honored Birdman with seven Golden Globe nominations, including nods for actors Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone; director Alejandro G. Iñárritu; and for Best Musical or Comedy. In the Best Drama category, Boyhood and The Imitation Game—which each earned five nominations—were joined by Foxcatcher, Selma, and The Theory of Everything.

Jennifer Aniston and Jake Gyllenhaal, once considered long shots in the acting categories, following up their Screen Actors Guild honors with Globe nominations. Aniston joins frontrunners Julianne Moore and Reese Witherspoon in the Best Actress in a Drama race, while Gyllenhaal joins a powerhouse field that includes Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne.

In television, Fargo and True Detective were the top two shows, with five and four nominations, respectively. Their stars—Fargo’s Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton, and Detective’s Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey—dominate a Best Actor in a TV Mini-series category that also includes The Normal Heart’s Mark Ruffalo (who was also nominated for his role in Foxcatcher.)

The 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, will air on NBC on Jan. 11.
