‘Lincoln’ Leads Golden Globes With 7 Nominations
Steven Spielberg is probably going to steal all of the awards again this year. His Civil War-era political drama Lincoln has been nominated for dozens of awards already, and leads at the Golden Globes with a total of seven nominations.
Among Lincoln‘s awards nominations are best drama, best director for Spielberg, and acting nods for Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones.
MSN Now reports that in film, Ben Affleck’s Argo and Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained will also likely take home a handful of shiny awards, as both have been nominated in five categories. Life of Pi and Zero Dark Thirty round out the best-drama nominees.
According to MSN News, best musical or comedy nods are going to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Les Miserables, Moonrise Kingdom, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, and Silver Linings Playbook. Best actor in a TV comedy or musical nods have gone to Alec Baldwin, Don Cheadle, Louis C.K., Matt LeBlanc, and Jim Parsons.
More on the TV side: Best TV drama series nominations included Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, Boardwalk Empire, Homeland and HBO’s The Newsroom. Best actors on the TV side: Kevin Costner, Benedict Cumberbatch, Woody Harrelson, Toby Jones, Clive Owen.
Virtually no surprises there, but I’m surprised once again that Sons of Anarchy continues to be passed over. However, series creator Kurt Sutter graciously congratulated his FX competitors on Twitter today:

Of course, being that he is Kurt Sutter, his other Golden Globe tweet is far too graphic to post here.
The Golden Globes ceremony will be held January 13, 2013, and will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. It will air live on NBC.
What do you think of this year’s Golden Globe nominations? Who was left out?
