Sorrentino and his film faced stiff competition including "Blue is the Warmest Color,'' a French lesbian love story by director Abdellatif Kechiche that won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. Other nominees included director Thomas Vinterberg for "The Hunt," about a lonely teacher in Denmark who must face the consequences of a lie, director Asghar Farhadi's "The Past," about an Iranian man who deserts his French wife and children to return home, and director Hayao Miyazaki's "The Wind Rises," a Japanese animated feature about a man who designed fighter planes. "The Great Beauty" just happens to also be Italy's foreign-language Oscar submission.

The Golden Globes, organized by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association are one of the biggest ceremonies in the Hollywood awards season leading to the Oscars in March.
