“THE 71ST ANNUAL GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS”: After earning rave reviews last year, co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are back to usher us through what should be another zany, booze-filled trophy derby in Beverly Hills. “American Hustle” and “12 Years a Slave” lead the film categories with seven nominations each, while on the TV side, “House of Cards” and “Behind the Candelabra” top the field with four nods apiece. 8 p.m. Sunday, NBC.
