It’s the latest in a string of award nominations, including a SAG Award nom from the Screen Actors Guild, for Bejo’s scene-stealing work in the critically acclaimed black-and-white, silent film The Artist.

Bejo portrays Peppy Miller, a young dancer on her way to stardom, in the film, which received six Golden Globe nominations—the most for any of this year’s nominated pictures.

Meanwhile, legendary Spanish director Pedro Almodovar’s The Skin I Live In, starring Antonio Banderas, received a nod for Best Foreign Language Film.

In the television category, Sofia Vergara received a Golden Globe nomination in the Best Supporting Actress in TV Series, Mini-Series, or Made-for-TV Movie

It’s the 39-year-old Colombian actress’ second straight Golden Globe nomination for her role as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on ABC’s Modern Family. And her second nomination this week after receiving a SAG Award nomination on Wednesday.

The 69th Golden Globe Awards will take place on Sunday, January 15, 2012.
