2013 Golden Globe Awards nominations announced | Film News

The nominations for 2013′s Golden Globe Awards have now been announced, with Hollywood’s big hitters of the year battling it out for best motion picture and director as well as awards for best actor and actress. Front runners in nominations include Lincoln with seven nods, as well as Argo and Django Unchained with five nominations a piece.

Lincoln, the Steven Spielberg directed drama, received nominations for best motion picture, best actor for Daniel Day-Lewis, best supporting actor for Tommy Lee Jones, best supporting actress for Sally Field and best director for Spielberg, amongst others.

Not only is this year a come back of sorts for Spielberg (last year War Horse, directed by himself, failed to win anything at the Globes or Oscars) but also for actor turned director Ben Affleck, as he will be going up against Spielberg with his film Argo in categories for best drama motion picture as well as best director. He’s had a hard time shaking off his celebrity status, as well as embarassing roles in flops like Gigli, but is now turning a corner into a well respected director and script writer.

The Golden Globes Award show will be aired live on Sunday, January 13th on NBC hosted by comediennes Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. The pair also got together a little in advance to put together a skit to prepare us for what we’re to expect from them on the night.
