Better known as the slightly fluffier counterpart to the Oscars, the Golden Globes have announced their list of nominations for the 2012 ceremony.

The list has thrown up some definite, somewhat predictable, front-runners with the rather wonderful silent film The Artist leading the pack and Hugo, Moneyball, The Ides of March and Bridesmaids all scoring some key nominations
