‘Birdman’ tops Golden Globes with 7 nominations

NEW YORK (AP) — “Birdman” squawked loudly in the Golden Globes, flying away with a leading seven nominations.

In nominations announced Thursday morning by the Hollywood Foreign Press, “Boyhood” and “The Imitation Game” trailed with five nods apiece. Those two films led a best drama category that also included “Foxcatcher,” ”Selma” and “The Theory of Everything.”

In the best picture, comedy or musical, category, “Birdman” was joined by “St. Vincent,” ”Grand Budapest Hotel,” ”Into the Woods” and — in a surprise — the independent British film “Pride.”
