'The Shape of Water' and 'The Post' top Golden Globe nominations

LOS ANGELES, Antje Weser (dpa) - The fantasy thriller "The Shape of Water" topped the list of nominees for the 75th Golden Globe Awards Monday with seven nominations, while the drama "The Post" and "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" followed close behind with six each.
"The Shape of Water," directed and written by Guillermo del Toro, picked up nominations for best drama, best director, best actress in a motion picture drama for Sally Hawkins and best screenplay.

Steven Spielberg’s political drama "The Post," which tells the story about the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, is up for best drama, as well as best actor and actress in a motion picture drama for Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, and best director.
"Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri," which follows a mother who is trying to get authorities to solve her daughter's murder, received nods for best drama, best actress in a motion picture drama for Frances McDormand and best director and screenplay for Martin McDonagh.
Also competing in the best drama category are Christopher Nolan's World War II thriller "Dunkirk," and the coming-of-age drama "Call Me By Your Name."
Unlike their rivals the Oscars, the Golden Globes split their top awards into two categories, drama and musical or comedy, leading to two sets of best film and lead acting prizes.
In the best comedy/musical category "Get Out," which follows an African-American man who meets his white girlfriend's parents, will compete with James Franco's "The Disaster Artist," the comedy-drama "Lady Bird," the biographical musical film "The Greatest Showman," and "I, Tonya," which is about the former competitive figure skater Tonya Harding.
James Franco was among the nominees for best actor in a motion picture muscial/comedy for the "The Disaster Artist," and Saoirse Ronan is among those up for best actress in a motion picture muscial/comedy for "Lady Bird."
Nominated for best foreign-language film were Cambodia's "First They Killed My Father," Germany and France's "In The Fade," Russia's "Loveless", Chile's "A Fantastic Woman," and Sweden, Germany and France's "The Square."
Winners of the 75th annual awards will be announced in a ceremony in Beverly Hills hosted by US comic Seth Meyers on January 7. US comedian Jimmy Fallon hosted the awards this year.
First awarded in 1944, the Golden Globes are presented by the around 90 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The awards honour the best in television and film across more than 25 categories.
