The movie Dear White People was named Best Motion Picture By a New Filmmaker while Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn picked up the Best New Screenwriter prize for adapting her novel for the big screen.
Also at the public-voted awards, which celebrate up-and-coming talent, British singer Sam Smith won the Best New Musician (Male) prize while Australian singer/songwriter Betty Who picked up the female counterpart.
Former Glee star Jonathan Groff landed the Best New Television Actor for his role in sitcom Looking, which was also named Best New Television Series. Orange is the New Black's Lorraine Toussaint won the TV actress award.
In theatre, there were prizes for Hedwig and the Angry Inch, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and actress Sophie Okonedo, who won a trophy for her role in the play A Raisin in The Sun.
The ceremony, hosted by Glee's Darren Criss, will air in the U.S. on Sunday (07Dec14).
Hit mob series The Sopranos and TV movie Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee lead the 2007 Primetime Emmy Award nominations with 15 and 17 nods, respectively.
The Sopranos is nominated for Best Drama, while the show's star James Gandolfini has been praised in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series category for his role as mafia boss Tony Soprano. Costar Edie Falco, who portrayed Carmela Soprano, is up for the Outstanding Lead Actress award, while Michael Imperioli, Aida Turturro and Lorraine Bracco have also received nods for their supporting roles.
Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee scooped nominations including Outstanding Made for Television Movie, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie for stars August Schellenberg (who plays Sitting Bull) and Aidan Quinn (Senator Dawes), while Anna Paquin (Elaine Goodale) is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress.
Meanwhile, actress Mary-Louise Parker scored two nominations for two different roles--Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie (The Robber Bride) and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series (Weeds).
But the Primetime Emmy nominations--announced on Thursday--had a big shock in store for fans of Desperate Housewives, Lost and Kiefer Sutherland's 24--all three programs missed out on the Best Drama category. Instead, The Sopranos will battle it out against Heroes, Boston Legal and medical dramas House and Grey's Anatomy.
Elsewhere, hit comedy Ugly Betty was nominated in 11 categories, including Best Comedy Actress for star America Ferrera and Outstanding Comedy Series, where it will compete against Entourage, 30 Rock, Two and a Half Men and The Office.

The 58th Annual Golden Globe Awards is shaping up to be one heck of a testosterone-charged run.
Steven Soderbergh's "Traffic" and Ridley Scott's "Gladiator" have emerged as the frontrunners in this year's race for the Globes, each receiving five nods apiece as nominations for the annual bash were announced this morning by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association in Beverly Hills, Calif..
Trailing closely behind are Cameron Crowe's semi-autobiographical rock flick "Almost Famous," "Chocolat," "Wonder Boys" and Soderbergh's "Erin Brockovich," each earning four nominations.
Soderbergh's drug trafficking drama (which has yet to bow in theaters) picked up almost all the prized loot with a nod for best picture (drama), best director, best screenplay for scribe Stephen Gaghan and a best supporting actor and actress (drama) mention for Benicio Del Toro and Catherine Zeta-Jones, respectively.
Soderbergh and company will go up against Scott's brutish epic "Gladiator" in three other fronts: best picture (drama), best director and best supporting thanks to the lascivious performance by Joaquin Phoenix.
The Roman decadence film has also earned its rugged Australian star Russell Crowe a best actor (drama) nomination. Crowe was long favored by critics to receive a nomination for his performance. Rounding out the film's fifth nomination is a nod for best original score.
The usual suspects also turned up for the best actor (drama) category. Besides Crowe, there's Javier Bardem for his role as a gay Cuban poet in "Before Night Falls," Michael Douglas playing a mid-life-crisis-prone writer in "Wonder Boys," Geoffrey Rush as the decorum-defying Marquis de Sade in "Quills" and Tom Hanks -- who avenges his "The Green Mile" shutout last year -- with his turn as the modern-day Robinson Crusoe in "Cast Away."
But the most interesting race to watch is when Soderbergh goes up against himself. His "Traffic" and "Erin Brockovich" are nominated in both the best director and best picture (drama) categories. (Soderbergh, we might add, has also been named best director by the National Board of Review, the New York Film Critics Circle and the Los Angeles Film Critics Association on the strength of both flicks).
Besides going head-to-head with Scott, Soderbergh will also have to fend off Ang Lee ("Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon") and Istvan Szabo ("Sunshine"), also contenders in the best director race.
Joining "Traffic," "Brockovich" and "Gladiator" in the best picture (drama) race are boy ballet film "Billy Elliot," the Douglas late bloomer "Wonder Boys" and the surprise dark horse "Sunshine."
As everyone suspected, Julia Roberts secured a best actress (drama) nom for her bosom-enhanced role in "Erin Brockovich." She's up against Joan Allen ("The Contender"), Bjork ("Dancer in the Dark"), Laura Linney ( "You Can Count On Me") and a somewhat surprising nomination for Ellen Burstyn for what some folks thought was more of a supporting role in "Requiem For a Dream."
In the best supporting actor (drama) race, the HFPA picked "The Contender" co-star Jeff Bridges, Willem Dafoe as the stoic bloodsucker in "Shadow of a Vampire," Albert Finney from "Erin Brockovich" and, as mentioned before, Del Toro in "Traffic" and Phoenix for "Gladiator."
Their female counterparts in the best supporting actress (drama) are: Oscar and Golden Globe winner Judi Dench for her work in "Chocolat," Julie Walters for "Billy Elliot," Zeta-Jones in "Traffic." In that category, "Almost Famous" yielded two noms -- one for Frances McDormand and one for ingenue Kate Hudson.
Perhaps to show that drama is really different from comedy, the HFPA also has separate categories for films that are in the lighter and decidedly happier vein.
That said, "Almost Famous" was tapped a best picture (comedy) nom, along with dog show spoof "Best in Show," DreamWorks' "Chicken Run," "Chocolat" and the Coen brothers' epic laughfest "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
The Golden Globes continues to smile on annual Oscar snub Jim Carrey as the actor picks up his Globe nod for his interpretation as the Dr. Seuss miser the Grinch in "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" (he won a Globe for both "The Truman Show" and "Man on the Moon" the past two years). Going up against Mr. Rubberface himself will be George Clooney ("O Brother, Where Art Thou?), John Cusack ("High Fidelity"), Robert De Niro ("Meet the Parents") and Mel Gibson ("What Women Want").
And if Carrey is the Globes golden boy, then Sandra Bullock might be the awards' dream girl. However uncannily, the actress (who was nominated for "While You Were Sleeping") picked up a best actress (comedy or musical) nom for "Miss Congeniality." Juliette Binoche from "Chocolat," Brenda Blethyn from the marijuana-minded "Saving Grace," Tracey Ullman from "Small Time Crooks" and Renee Zellweger from "Nurse Betty" are also nominees in the category.
Besides Lee's "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," the best foreign film category is filled with titles that are obscure at best, unknown in the least. Going fist-to-fist against Lee's martial-arts flick (which failed to nab a best film nod) are "Amores Perros" from Mexico, "The Hundred Steps" and "Malena," both from Italy, and the French flick "The Widow of St. Pierre."
On the television front, the best series (drama) race will pit ratings buster "ER" (NBC) against "CSI" (CBS), "The Practice" (ABC), "The Sopranos" (HBO) and multiple Emmy winner "The West Wing" (NBC).
And "Ally McBeal" (Fox), "Frasier" (NBC), "Malcolm in the Middle" (Fox), "Sex and the City (HBO) and "Will & Grace" (NBC) will duke it out in the best series (comedy) realm. "Will & Grace" is this year's Emmy champ.
The Globes, in somewhat of a surprise move, nominated Sarah Michelle Gellar for the WB's "Buffy the Vampire" and Jessica Alba of Fox's "Dark Angel" in the best actress (drama) category. Joining them are Lorraine Bracco (HBO's "The Sopranos"), Amy Brenneman (CBS' "Judging Amy") and Edie Falco (also HBO's "The Sopranos").
Of special note is Robert Downey Jr.'s nomination for best supporting actor for "Ally McBeal." His future, however, on the Fox comedy series has been hanging in the balance since his recent run-ins with drugs and the law. Downey is nominated along with Sean Hayes of "Will & Grace" (NBC) John Mahoney and David Hyde Pierce of "Frasier" (NBC), Christopher Plummer of "American Tragedy" (CBS) and Bradley Whitford of "The West Wing" (NBC).
Winners of the 58th Annual Golden Globes will be announced Jan. 21 in an NBC telecast.
Moviegoers gave DreamWorks' "Gladiator" a thumbs-up vote of nearly $33 million.
The R-rated DreamWorks' action adventure set in ancient Rome arrived to a spectacular ESTIMATED $32.7 million at 2,938 theaters ($11,130 per theater). Its per theater average was the highest for any film playing in wide or limited release this weekend.
"It really is a great opening," DreamWorks distribution head Jim Tharp said Sunday morning. "I think we're so pleased with it because it's an R-rated movie, it has a long running time and, initially, the appeal was predominately to men. All of that indicated it would be tough to get the movie to $30 million.
"The positive word of mouth helped increase Friday from $11.1 million to $13.6 million (on Saturday). On Friday, women represented about 35% of our audience, and on Saturday it jumped to about 45%. That positive word of mouth actually affected women as much if not more than men. They found out it played on an emotional level, versus what you anticipate from a movie called 'Gladiator' set in Rome in the Second Century."
Early Sunday morning, Tharp had not yet received details of the studio's exit polls but, based on preliminary information, said, "The over-25 (demographic group) is still the biggest part of our audience. But only slightly more (than the under-25s). It seemed like the date crowd did respond on Saturday night."
Looking at past big summer openings by R-rated films, Tharp said, " Air Force One" was the biggest ever at $37.2 million or so. Most of the ones above us had Tom Cruise, Harrison Ford or Mel Gibson. I think it puts Russell Crowe in rarified company there. This is the first vehicle for him that's opened to anywhere near these numbers."
Asked why DreamWorks opted to release the film this weekend, Tharp explained, "We felt this weekend we would have 100% of our primary demographic. Later in the summer is a better play time, but our thinking is we'd rather have almost 100% of our demographic now than split that primary demographic later."
Although DreamWorks is distributing "Gladiator" domestically, Universal is releasing it internationally, and the two studios are 50-50 partners, sharing equally in its success. The film reportedly cost $103 million to make.
"Gladiator" arrived via Universal in Australia last Thursday, opening to a record-setting gross of over $600,000 (A$1.03 million) at 287 theaters. Universal said its opening day success topped previous arrivals by hits like "Deep Impact", "The Mummy," "Saving Private Ryan,"" Jurassic Park:The Lost World" and "Jurassic Park."
The Australian opening, which kicked off the film's international campaign, was followed by its launch in Mexico this weekend. Most of "Gladiator's" international runs will begin later in May and continue through June.
Directed by Ridley Scott, "Gladiator" stars Russell Crowe.
"U-571," Universal's PG-13 World War II submarine drama, sank one notch to second place in its third week with a slower ESTIMATED $7.56 million (-40%) at 2,701 theaters (+85 theaters; $2,800 per theater). Its cume is approximately $49.4 million, heading for $60 million-plus in domestic theaters.
Directed by Jonathan Mostow, "U-571" stars Matthew McConaughey, Bill Paxton, Harvey Keitel and Jon Bon Jovi.
"There's a lot to be said this weekend, because you can't forget that we're 50% partners on 'Gladiator,'" Universal distribution president Nikki Rocco said Sunday morning. "We have the number one, two and three films in the marketplace. So I feel thrilled."
Note: Based on Universal's estimates, 'The Flintstones In Viva Rock Vegas' came in third, slightly ahead of New Line's 'Frequency'. However, New Line's estimates for "Frequency" came in ahead of "Flintstones." Rankings here reflect the estimates reported by each of the studios on their own releases.
Focusing on "Flintstones," Rocco noted that it was up strongly on Saturday from Friday. After doing $1.37 million Friday, it jumped 118% to $2.99 million Saturday. "A 118% boost is what you want to see between a Friday and a Saturday when there is no school (vacation)," Rocco said.
"I think the 'Gladiator' number is really fabulous. So, all in all, a great weekend for the Big Globe!"
"Frequency" held on to third place in its second week with a still solid ESTIMATED $6.53 million (-28%) at 2,631 theaters (+10 theaters; $2,471 per theater). Its cume is approximately $17.8 million.
Directed by Gregory Hoblit, it stars Dennis Quaid and Jim Caviezel.
Universal's "The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas," the PG-rated prequel to the 1996 "Flintstones" blockbuster, slid two pegs to fourth place in its second week with a less-animated ESTIMATED $6.31 million (-40%) at 3,050 theaters (+10 theaters; $2,070 per theater). Its cume is approximately $18.3 million.
Directed by Brian Levant, director of the original "Flintstones," the prequel stars Mark Addy and Stephen Baldwin.
20th Century Fox's PG-13 rated drama "Where the Heart Is" dropped one notch to fifth place in its second week with a less hearty ESTIMATED $5.0 million (-40%) at 2,439 theaters (+2 theaters; $2,050 per theater). Its cume is approximately $15.7 million.
"Heart," which cost about $15 million to make, was picked up by Fox for domestic and English-speaking territories for only $9 million.
Directed and produced by Matt Williams, it stars Natalie Portman, Ashley Judd, Stockard Channing and Joan Cusack.
New Line's PG-13 rated urban appeal drama "Love & Basketball" slid one notch in its third week to sixth place with a slower ESTIMATED $3.5 million (-34%) at 1,192 theaters (-53 theaters; $2,810 per theater). Its cume is approximately $19.8 million.
Made for under $10 million, "Basketball's" target audience is under-25 African-Americans.
Written and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, it stars Omar Epps and Sanaa Lathan.
Buena Vista/Touchstone's PG-13 rated romantic comedy "Keeping the Faith" held on to seventh place in its fourth week with a less faithful ESTIMATED $2.8 million (-37%) at 2,014 theaters (-157 theaters; $1,376 per theatre). Its cume is approximately $29.5 million.
Directed by Edward Norton, it stars Ben Stiller, Jenna Elfman and Edward Norton.
Columbia's PG-13 drama "I Dreamed Of Africa" wasn't what moviegoers were dreaming about, opening in eighth place to a disappointing ESTIMATED $2.5 million at 2,112 theaters ($1,184 per theater).
"Africa," which cost about $34 million to make, is directed by Hugh Hudson and stars Kim Basinger.
Paramount's R rated military trial drama "Rules of Engagement" fell three rungs to ninth place in its fifth week with a dull ESTIMATED $2.4 million (-49%) at 2,261 theaters (-766 theaters; $1,061 per theater). Its cume is approximately $54.0 million heading for $60-65 million in domestic theaters.
Directed by William Friedkin, it stars Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson.
Rounding out the Top Ten was Columbia's PG-13 rated dramatic comedy "28 Days," down two notches in its fourth week with a restrained ESTIMATED $2.35 million (-41%) at 2,413 theaters (-110 theaters; $974 per theater). Its cume is approximately $32.0 million, heading for $40 million in domestic theaters.
Directed by Betty Thomas, "Days" stars Sandra Bullock and Viggo Mortensen.
Last weekend also saw the arrival of USA Films' PG-13 rated drama "Up At The Villa," placing 20th with a calm ESTIMATED $0.33 million at 89 theaters ($3,655 per theater).
Directed by Philip Haas, it stars Kristin Scott Thomas, Sean Penn, James Fox, Derek Jacobi and Anne Bancroft.
Miramax's R rated comedy "Human Traffic" kicked off in 25th place to a stop-and-go ESTIMATED $10,500 at 5 theaters (1 in New York and 4 in Los Angeles; $2,100 per theater).
"Traffic" will drive into the Top Ten markets this Friday (5/12).
Written and directed by Justin Kerrigan, it stars John Simm, Lorraine Pilkington, Shaun Parkes, Danny Dyer, Nicola Reynolds and Dean Davies.
Columbia held sneak previews Saturday night of its PG-13 rated youth appeal dance film "Center Stage" at 627 theaters.
"We probably were about half full," Sony Pictures Releasing president Jeff Blake said Sunday morning, "but really at or near capacity. Most of the suburban malls got a lot of young teenage girl business. It's really become - and I think we're marketing towards them - their show.
'Flashdance' or female 'Rocky' kind of show, as opposed to anything stuffy or artistic in the world of ballet. I think the dancing in it is great, but pointedly we've emphasized the struggle of the young girl to make it. I think that's certainly the audience that's going to respond best and the audience that showed up most at the sneaks. There's a lot of teenage girls out there. Many of them showed up last night and, hopefully, more to come next weekend."
"Stage" opens wide Friday (5/12).
Directed by Nicholas Hytner, it stars Amanda Schull, Zoe Saldana, Susan May Pratt, Peter Gallagher, Donna Murphy and Ethan Stiefel.
On the expansion front, Paramount Classics' R-rated drama about teen suicide, "The Virgin Suicides" expanded in its third week, placing 21st with a disappointing ESTIMATED $0.3 million at 100 theaters (+71 theaters; $3,040 per theater). Its cume is approximately $0.9 million.
Written and directed by Sofia Coppola, it stars James Woods, Kathleen Turner, Kirsten Dunst and Josh Hartnett.
Miramax's R-rated comedy "East Is East" went wider in its fourth week, placing 22nd with a quiet ESTIMATED $0.22 million at 61 theaters (+17 theaters; $3,524 per theater). Its cume is approximately $0.9 million.
Produced by Leslee Udwin and directed by Damien O'Donnell, "East" stars Om Puri and Linda Bassett.
Key films -- those grossing more than $500,000 for the weekend -- took in approximately $79.13 million, down about 1.77% from the comparable weekend last year when key films grossed $80.55 million.
This weekend's key film gross was up about 1.97% from this year's previous weekend, when key films grossed $77.60 million.
Last year, Universal's opening week of "The Mummy" was first with $43.37 million at 3,209 theaters ($13,515 per theater); and 20th Century Fox's second week of "Entrapment" was second with $12.33 million at 2,855 theaters ($4,318 per theater). The top two films one year ago grossed $55.7 million. This year, the top two films grossed an ESTIMATED $40.3 million.
