2013 Golden Globe Nominations: ‘Lincoln’ Leads, ‘Django’ Makes a Move

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced the nominees for the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, to be hosted on Jan. 13 by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

The heavily nominated films this year are Lincoln, leading with seven nominations, followed by Argo and Django Unchained with five each. Although Django Unchained has been getting a lot of good buzz, it has yet to be recognized from an award standpoint. That changed in a big way with nominations for Best Screenplay, Best Director, Best Motion Picture Drama and two Best Supporting Actor nods for Leondardo DiCaprio and Christoph Waltz

The list doesn't contain many surprises this year, but at the same time there's no egregious nominations for terrible or mediocre films as with years past. The only "out there" film that hasn't been talked about this award seasont to get many nominations is Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, a film that was still praised by critics.
