“Lincoln” Leads the Golden Globe Nominees

lincolnThe Hollywood Foreign Press has spoken and they love them some Lincoln. Steven Spielberg‘s historical drama outpaced the competition this morning pulling in a field best 7 Golden Globe nominations including Picture, Director, Actor (Daniel Day-Lewis), Supporting Actor (Tommy Lee Jones), Supporting Actress (Sally Field), Score and Screenplay. Coming in a surprisingly strong second was Django Unchained with 5 nods including two in Supporting Actor (Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz) that really shakes up that race. Also grabbing 5 nods was Argo while Les Miserables, Life of Pi and Silver Linings Playbook all pulled down 4 nominations. The biggest surprise in the acting categories was the inclusion of Nicole Kidman in the Supporting race for the hot mess of a movie The Paperboy. After getting a nom from SAG yesterday, could Kidman be a true Oscar nominee spoiler over snubbed ladies like Samantha Barks, Maggie Smith, Ann Dowd, and Kelly Reilly? We’ll see… Also of note, the small February comedy Salmon Fishing in the Yemen shocked with 3 bids in the Musical/Comedy Category…. Big snubs included Keira Knightley (I think her Oscar hopes are done now), Beasts of the Southern Wild, Ted, Barbra Streisand, Anthony Hopkins, Eddie Redmayne, Robert DeNiro, and Emmanuelle Riva. So, who did make it? Take a look at the movie nominees below.
