The awards season is kicking off on the other side of the Atlantic, and one of the most important events will be the 73rd Golden Globe Awards, on 10 January next year. Handed out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the nominations for the awards have this year shone the spotlight on a few titles co-produced by European countries, in addition to the Best Foreign-language Film category.

Leading the overall nominations is Carol [+see also:

, the melodrama by Todd Haynes (co-produced by UK outfits Number 9 Films and Film4) that has made waves among the critics since its Cannes bow, with its delightfully precious depiction of a love story between two women in 1950s New York. The film has earned five nods, including Best Drama, Best Director, Best Original Score for Carter Burwell and Best Actress Drama for both leads, Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara – already the winner of Cannes’ Best Actress Award herself.

Two other UK-US co-productions come next: Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs [+see also:

and Tom Hooper’s The Danish Girl [+see also:

, with four and three nods, respectively. The two biopics, which are very different from one another, have been taken into account for their achievements in acting, writing and music – the portrait of Steve Jobs sees Michael Fassbender vying for Best Actor Drama, Kate Winslet for Best Supporting Actress, Aaron Sorkin for Best Screenplay and Daniel Pemberton for Best Music, while that of transgender artist Lili Elbe is singled out for the work of Eddie Redmayne in the Best Actor Drama category, Alicia Vikander in Best Actress Drama and Alexandre Desplat in Best Music. On a par, with three nominations, we find Lenny Abrahamson’s acclaimed, Toronto-awarded Room [+see also:

, an Irish-Canadian co-production, which is vying for Best Drama, Best Actress Drama for Brie Larson and Best Screenplay for Emma Donoghue. Also from the British Isles hail three other European films: John Crowley's Irish-British-Canadian co-production Brooklyn [+see also:

, which has managed to get a nod for Jane Fonda’s head-turning performance in Best Supporting Actress and the theme Simple Song No 3, by David Lang, in Best Original Song. Sam Smith’s Writing’s on the Wall, the main theme tune to Spectre [+see also:
