The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., bestower of the Golden Globe awards, has placed 11-year-old Abigail Breslin in the lead actress nomination category for "Little Miss Sunshine" and "Dreamgirls" scene-stealer Jennifer Hudson in the supporting category, association officials revealed Wednesday.
Beyonce Knowles will look for a nomination as lead actress for "Dreamgirls," and Cate Blanchett will vie for a nod in the supporting category for "Notes on a Scandal."
Unlike with the Academy Awards, for which the studios or producers decide what category an actor will enter, Hollywood Foreign Press officials make the decisions for the Globes.
Meanwhile, "Venus" and "The History Boys" were deemed to be dramas, so Peter O'Toole and Richard Griffiths are competing for lead actor nominations.
Nominations will be announced Dec. 14.
