The color-soaked musical ''Moulin Rouge,'' the not-yet-released drama ''A Beautiful Mind,'' and the hobbit-packed ''The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring'' are among the major contenders in the 59th annual Golden Globe nominations, announced Thursday morning.

''Moulin Rouge'' garnered multiple nominations, including best motion picture (musical or comedy), best director for Baz Luhrmann, and best performance (musical or comedy) nominations for stars Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor. Kidman confirmed that 2001 is her biggest year yet by also snapping up a drama performance nomination for her role in the supernatural drama ''The Others.''

Besides ''Lord of the Rings'' and ''A Beautiful Mind,'' the other nominees for best motion picture (drama) are three smaller-scale productions: ''In the Bedroom,'' ''The Man Who Wasn't There,'' and ''Mulholland Drive.'' ''Moulin Rouge'' aside, the nominees for best motion picture (musical or comedy) are: ''Shrek,'' ''Bridget Jones's Diary,'' ''Gosford Park,'' and ''Legally Blond.''

Like Kidman, Billy Bob Thornton is nominated for best performance in both the drama and comedy or musical categories, for ''The Man Who Wasn't There'' and ''Bandits,'' respectively. Other surprises include best musical or comedy performance nods for ''Ghost World'' costar Thora Birch and ''Hedwig and the Angry Inch'' star John Cameron Mitchell.

In the Globes' TV categories, ''The Sopranos,'' ''Alias,'' ''Sex and the City' and ''CSI: Crime Scene Investigation'' garnered multiple nominations. First-time nominees include ''Gilmore Girls'' costar Lauren Graham, ''Alias'' star Jennifer Garner, and HBO's ''Six Feet Under.'' Finishing off a strong year, ''Friends'' nabbed a best series, musical or comedy nomination, as did ''Ally McBeal,'' ''Frasier,'' ''Sex and the City'' and ''Will & Grace.'' In addition to ''The Sopranos,'' the best drama series nominees were ''24,'' ''CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,'' ''Six Feet Under,'' and ''The West Wing.'' The winners of the 59th annual Golden Globes will be announced Jan. 20, in a ceremony to be broadcast live on NBC.
