Chinese directors Peter Chan's Dearest, Zhang Yimou's Coming Home and author Han Han's The Continent each earned a nomination.
French films Venus in Fur and Mommy and the Russian film Leviathan were also among the nominees this year.
To qualify for a nomination for Best Foreign Language Film, more than 51% of the dialogue in the films must be of a language other than English.
Last year, five Chinese films were nominated for Best Foreign Language Film, including director Feng Xiaogang's 1942, Jia Zhangke's A Touch of Sin (which won him an award for Best Original Screenplay at the 66th Cannes Film Festival) and Wong Kar-wai's Grandmaster. None of them won.
The 72nd Golden Globe Awards will be held on Jan 11, 2015. Comedians Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will return as hosts for the third time.
