While most of us are scratching our heads over "The Martian" being nominated in the best picture, comedy category, at the Golden Globes, let's stick a pin in that and take a look at all of the moms who have been honored for their work in film or TV.

Cate Blanchett, who won the Oscar for "Blue Jasmine," is the sole mama in the best actress (motion picture, drama) category, as announced this morning by America Ferrera, Chloe Grace Moretz, Angela Bassett and Dennis Quaid. She's been nominated for her role in "Carol," while Melissa McCarthy ("Spy") and Maggie Smith ("The Lady in the Van") are nominated in the motion picture, comedy category.

Moms nominated in the supporting actress category are Jane Fonda ("Youth"), Jennifer Jason Leigh ("The Hateful Eight") and Kate Winslet ("Steve Jobs").

Moving over to the small screen, Jamie Lee Curtis ("Scream Queens") and Julia Louis-Dreyfus ("Veep") have been nominated in the comedy category, while Emmy-winning Viola Davis ("How to Get Away with Murder"), Taraji P. Henson ("Empire") and Golden Globe-winner Robin Wright ("House of Cards") landed nominations in the drama category.

Felicity Huffman ("American Crime") landed a nod in the TV movie or limited series category, and Regina King ("American Crime") earned a supporting nomination in the same category.

Corinne Foxx, daughter of Jamie Foxx, will serve as Miss Golden Globe at the ceremony, to be hosted by Ricky Gervais on January 10 at 5 p.m. Pacific time on NBC.
