Lady Gaga celebrates Golden Globe nomination

Pop stars Lady Gaga and Sam Smith were among the nominees when the contenders for the 2016 Golden Globe Awards were announced on Thursday (10Dec15).

The Poker Face singer has received a nod for Best Actress in a Mini-series or TV Movie for her starring role in TV series American Horror Story: Hotel, and she will go up against Kirsten Dunst (Fargo), Felicity Huffman (American Crime), Sarah Hay (Flesh and Bone) and Queen Latifah (Bessie).


Gaga expressed her delight at winning a Golden Globe nomination for her acting in an emotional post on Twitter.com, writing, "I apologize to my neighbors I'm still screaming in my apt (apartment) in NY! I'm nominated as an actress for a Golden Globe what a dream is this real!"


The nod comes just days after Gaga received a nod for Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Actress at the 2016 People's Choice Awards.


Although it received mixed reviews upon release, Sam Smith's James Bond theme Writing's on the Wall, which featured in Spectre, has been nominated for Best Original Song at the Globes.


It will compete against Ellie Goulding's Love Me Like You Do from Fifty Shades of Grey, Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's See You Again from Furious 7, Simple Song #3 from Youth and One Kind of Love from Beach Boys movie Love & Mercy.


The nominations were announced by Angela Bassett, Chloe Grace Moretz, Dennis Quaid, and America Ferrera at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on Thursday (10Dec15).


The 73rd annual Golden Globes will be held at the same hotel on 10 January (16). Comedian Ricky Gervais returns for his fourth stint as host.
