Danny Boyle received a Golden Globe nod for Best Screenplay - Motion Picture for '127 Hours', which stars James Franco as a hiker who cuts off his own arm to survive in the Danny Boyle movie '127 Hours'. The movie, which is based on a true story, received a total of of three nods, including one for Franco.

Boyle said in a statement: "We're absolutely delighted to be included in the nominations for the Golden Globes especially as HFPA were so generous to us on 'Slumdog' two years ago. I'm particularly pleased for James as it's such a brave and exhilarating performance, and for Aron Ralston who took such a leap of faith in letting us tell his story in such an uncompromising way."
