A trio of Minnesota filmmakers nabbed a pair of Best Picture nominations as the 71st annual Golden Globe nominations were announced Thursday morning in Los Angeles, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Joel and Ethan Coen's folk music tale "Inside Llewyn Davis" was nominated for Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical; while the historical drama "12 Years a Slave," co-produced by Bill Pohlad, was nominated for Best Motion Picture – Drama.

The Golden Globe nominations for "12 Years a Slave" follows the film's leading four nominations Wednesday for the 20th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The Coen brothers, who co-directed, co-wrote and co-produced "Inside Llewyn Davis," were shut out of the Best Director and Best Screenplay categories. The brothers were nominated with four other songwriters, however, for Best Original Song for "Please Mr. Kennedy."

Barkhad Abdi, the Minneapolis-based first-time actor in "Captain Phillips," was also nominated for Best Supporting Actor. Abdi was nominated for a SAG Award Wednesday as well.

Chanhassen Dinner Theatres alum Amy Adams was also nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical for "American Hustle."

Whether the Golden Globe nominations will translate to Oscar nominations next month remains unclear.

In his analysis of Thursday's nominations, Variety columnist Tim Gray said, "As an Oscar predictor, the Globes have been fairly unreliable in the past decade. However, as a tool to promote the nominated films to the general public, they are a powerhouse."

On the television side, Cloquet native Jessica Lange was nominated for Best Actress in a Miniseries or TV Movie for "American Horror Story: Coven."

The Golden Globes will be handed out in Los Angeles Jan. 12.
