Idris Elba is having a very good week. After securing an NAACP nod on Tuesday and three SAG nominations less than a day ago, the star of BBC AMERICA’s Luther has his name down for two Golden Globes.

This year’s nominations have just been announced, and he’s listed in the best supporting actor category, for his terrifying turn in the Netflix drama Beasts of No Nation, and again in best actor in a television limited series or movie made for television.

Elsewhere, Cate Blanchett’s Carol is nominated in the best motion picture, director and score categories, with both Cate and her co-star Rooney Mara up for best actress. They are up against some astonishing performances though, particularly Saoirse Ronan in Brooklyn.

And last year’s winner of everything Eddie Redmayne has been nominated for best actor in The Danish Girl, against Michael Fassbender for his part in Steve Jobs.
