Alejandro González Iñárritu’s “Birdman” led the way Wednesday with seven Golden Globe nominations, followed closely by “Boyhood” and “The Imitation Game,” each with five.

“Birdman” scored nominations for Best Comedy or Musical, Director and several acting categories.

Earning nominations for Best Drama were “Boyhood,” “Foxcatcher,” “The Imitation Game,” Selma,” and “The Theory of Everything.”

As for television, perennial nominees “The Good Wife,” and “Downtown Abbey,” were once again nominated for Best Drama, joined by newcomer “The Affair,” “Game of Thrones,” and Netflix’s “House of Cards.”

Joining Netflix in the Internet streaming wars was Amazon, which earned a nod for “Transparent” in the Best Comedy on TV category. Netflix is also represented in that category for its widely popular comedy, “Orange is the New Black.” Its political thriller “House of Cards,” was nominated for Best Drama. This is Amazon’s first nomination.

The one glaring omission appears to be ABC’s critically acclaimed comedy “Modern Family,” which has dominated previous competitions.

The Golden Globes, hosted by comedians Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, will air on Sunday, Jan. 11 at 8 p.m.
