The Artist, Michel Hazanavicius's largely silent black-and-white homage to Hollywood's golden era, has swept the board at the Golden Globe nominations, picking up nods in all major categories.

The Help, a civil rights era drama came in joint second with five nominations, equalling The Descendants, Alexander Payne's Hawaii drama starring George Clooney.

Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris picked up four nominations, as did The Ides of March, written by and starring George Clooney.
