According to The Hollywood Reporter, Alexander Payne's Sideways, a tour through Southern California wine country in which two old friends come to terms with their lives, intoxicated the voters at the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., which rewarded the rueful comedy with seven Golden Globe nominations, announced Monday morning.

Sideways, which earned a best comedy nom along with mentions for its actors Paul Giamatti, Thomas Haden Church and Virginia Madsen, dominated a crowded field for the 62nd annual Golden Globe Awards, which also saw the drama The Aviator score six nominations, while Closer, Finding Neverland and Million Dollar Baby took five nominations each. Jamie Foxx stood out from his fellow actors, earning three nominations -- best actor in a comedy for his performance as the late performer Ray Charles in Ray, best supporting actor for his turn as an embattled taxi driver in the moody thriller Collateral, and best performance by an actor in a miniseries or motion picture for Redemption. Hilary Swank hit a double, earning a film nomination as best actress in a drama for playing a young woman who enters the boxing ring in Million Dollar Baby, and a TV nomination as best actress for a miniseries or motion picture for Iron Jawed Angels.
