"American Hustle" received seven nominations, including a best supporting actress nod for Jennifer Lawrence.

Some of the most buzzed-about films, TV shows and talent from the big and small screens nabbed Golden Globe nominations Thursday, with crime comedy "American Hustle" and antebellum drama "12 Years a Slave" leading the way.

With seven nominations apiece, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association had plenty of love for those two films in particular. Both also proved popular in Wednesday's SAG Award nominations

"American Hustle" led the list for best comedy or musical, which also included "Her," "Inside Llewyn Davis," "Nebraska," and "The Wolf of Wall Street," while "12 Years a Slave" goes up against top dramas "Captain Phillips," "Gravity," "Philomena" and "Rush.""Hustle's" lead stars, Christian Bale and Jennifer Lawrence, and supporting talent, Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper, will all be in the running for awards at the ceremony in January. 

And it's the same for "12 Years," with Chiwetel Ejiofor, who's been at the top of nearly everyone's awards-show predictions list, representing the leads, and Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong'o on scored best supporting nods.

As for small-screen efforts, the television categories garnered their fair share of buzz, too. 

The final season of "Breaking Bad" received its expected nominations in best TV drama, alongside fellow cable contenders "House of Cards" and "Masters of Sex," as well as broadcast favorites "Downton Abbey" and "The Good Wife." And, of course, "Bad" lead Bryan Cranston is up for best actor in a drama. Joining him in the category are Liev Schreiber ("Ray Donovan"), Michael Sheen ("Masters of Sex"), Kevin Spacey ("House of Cards"), and James Spader ("The Black List").

But "Breaking Bad" is nowhere to be seen in the best actress roundup. While Anna Gunn received a SAG nod for her role in the series, she had no such luck with the Golden Globes. Instead the best actress field is made up of Julianna Margulies ("The Good Wife"), Tatiana Maslany ("Orphan Black"), Taylor Schilling ("Orange is the New Black"), Kerry Washington ("Scandal") and Robin Wright ("House of Cards").

As for comedies, fan favorite "The Big Bang Theory" will vie for the title of best against fellow favorite "Modern Family," "Girls," "Parks and Recreation," and newcomer "Brooklyn Nine-Nine."

The funnymen recognized for their television work include Jason Bateman ("Arrested Development"), Don Cheadle ("House of Lies"), Michael J. Fox, ("Michael J. Fox Show"), Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory") and Andy Samberg ("Brooklyn Nine-Nine"). And the leading lady laugh-getters? Zooey Deschanel ("New Girl"), Lena Dunham ("Girls"), Edie Falco ("Nurse Jackie"), Julie Louis-Dreyfus ("Veep"), and Golden Globe co-host Amy Poehler ("Parks and Recreation") all nabbed noms.
