The yet-to-be released musical ”Chicago” led movie nominations for the 60th annual Golden Globes, announced Thursday in Los Angeles. ”Chicago” scored eight nods, including best musical or comedy film and best actor in a musical or comedy for star Richard Gere. Other major contenders were ”The Hours,” ”Adaptation,” ”About Schmidt,” and ”Gangs of New York.” Among the most nominated TV shows, meanwhile, were ”Will & Grace,” and ”The West Wing.” Meryl Streep was a big winner, picking up two nominations: one for best supporting actress in a musical or comedy for ”Adaptation,” and the other for best actress in a drama in ”The Hours.”

Surprises included the return of ”The Simpsons” to the best TV comedy series category, a nod for ”Punch Drunk Love”’s Adam Sandler for best actor in a comedy, and the exclusion of the highly lauded ”Y Tu Mamá También” from the best foreign film nods. Eminem got his first-ever Golden Globe nomination, but it wasn’t for his acting; he picked it up for writing the ”8 Mile” soundtrack song ”Lose Yourself.” Another erstwhile rapper, Queen Latifah, scored a best supporting actress nomination for ”Chicago.”
