Golden Globes – nominations for 2013 are out!
Golden Globes get a lousy reputation, being the little awkward bother of the Academy Awards. The nominations are a good opening for awards season, however, since it suggests how the Oscars might go. A nomination or an award at the Golden Globes is also a nice recognition for films that might be otherwise snubbed at the notoriously elitist Oscars. There are no big surprises here, but there are some big names with a lot of pull competing.
Lincoln has nabbed 7 nominations, including Best Motion Picture and Best Actor for Daniel Day-Lewis (naturally). Django Unchained and Argo both have 5 nominations, and they compete for Best Motion Picture, Best Director and Best Supporting Actor. Zero Dark Thirty, Silver Linings Playbook and Les Misérables are all on 4 nominations each, with our beefboy Hugh Jackman getting a Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical nomination for his role as Jean Valjean.
