Spielberg’s Lincoln Leads the 2013 Golden Globe Nominations

It will still be another month before we find out the nominations for next year’s Academy Awards, but today the Hollywood Foreign Press Association unveiled its picks for the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards… and they fell pretty much in line with expectations. Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln led the pack with seven nominations including Best Picture – Drama, while Argo and Django Unchained both earned five each. Zero Dark Thirty was also up for a handful of awards along with Silver Linings Playbook and Les Miserables.

Salmon Fishing In The Yemen was one that came out of left field for a lot of people, somehow sneaking in for a nomination under Best Picture – Comedy/Musical. As for snubs, P.T. Anderson’s The Master was shut out of Best Picture and Best Director, only picking up nods for acting, while a lot of people also seem pretty peeved that ParaNorman was overlooked for Best Animated Feature. Beasts of the Southern Wild was also nowhere to be found. What do you think of this year’s nominees? Check out the full list after the jump.

    I can’t believe they couldn’t throw Quvenzhané Wallis and Dwight Henry a bone for Beasts. Oh well, I guess you just can’t beat the starpower of the super-relevant Rachel Weisz and Ewan Mcgregor.

    Oh yeah! Act of Valor for best song! …wait, what?

    I think the big thing with the Golden Globes has always been the mainstream/star angle, hence snubs for Beasts and its cast as well as a snub of The Master/P.T. Anderson
