Among the Golden Globes nominees announced Thursday, two actors are already winners: Leonardo DiCaprio, who scored best actor in a drama nods for both Blood Diamond and The Departed, and Jennifer Hudson, nominated for best supporting actress in her big-screen debut, Dreamgirls.

"I'm overwhelmed right now," Hudson said on the Today show immediately after the nominations were announced. "I just started screaming when they said the names."

Dreamgirls racked up multiple nominations, including a best actress, musical or comedy, nod for star Beyoncé Knowles and a supporting actor nomination for Eddie Murphy. Shut out was writer-director Bill Condon.

Another big winner was Babel, which led the field with seven nominations, including best supporting actor for Brad Pitt and best director for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.

DiCaprio (who said in a statement, "I'm both humbled and honored to have been nominated for this award") isn't the only nominee who will be competing against himself: Clint Eastwood is up for best director for two of his movies, the World War I dramas Flags of Our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima.
