The nominations for the 73rd annual Golden Globe Awards have just been announced and between LGBT characters in TV series or movies and lesbian and bisexual actresses, this selection is pretty good this year.

"Carol," the film which tells the love story between two women in the 1950s in New York, won no less than five nominations at the Golden Globe Awards including a nomination for best Motion Picture, Drama. The two main actresses, Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, will face as they were both nominated in the Actress In A Motion Picture, Drama category.

The other nominations received by "Carol" are best Director and best Score. The film could therefore win five trophies but the competition will be very hard.

Note also the nomination of Alicia Vikender for her role in trans* film "The Danish Girl" which is in the Actress In A Motion Picture, Drama category. Eddie Redmayne ("The Danish Girl") is also nominated for best Actor In A Motion Picture, Drama. "The Danish Girl" is also nominated for best Score.

The openly lesbian actress Lily Tomlin was nominated for a Golden Globe for best Actress In A Motion Picture, Comedy for her lesbian role in "Grandma".
