Lincoln, Argo, Les Miserables and more score nominations from the Hollywood Foreign Press

Awards season is in full swing as the Golden Globe nominations have been announced, find out the nominees below!





Best Motion Picture – Drama

Django Unchained
Life of Pi
Zero Dark Thirty

Based on how votes have gone so far in the critics circles, expect Zero Dark Thirty to win this one.


Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy:

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Les Miserables
Moonrise Kingdom
Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
Silver Linings Playbook

This is really just between Les Miserables and Silver Linings Playbook. With Moonrise Kingdom as a wild card.


Best Director:

Ben Affleck, Argo
Katherine Bigelow, Zero Dark Thirty
Ang Lee, Life of Pi
Steven Spielberg, Lincoln
Quentin Tarantino, Django Unchained

No Tom Hooper for Les Miserables? That seems odd and could hurt the film’s chances at winning here and at the Oscars.


Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama:

Daniel Day Lewis, Lincoln
Richard Gere, Arbitrage
John Hawkes, The Sessions
Joaquin Phoenix, The Master
Denzel Washington, Flight

Daniel Day Lewis is expected to win everything this year. Everything. Otherwise, no shockers here besides that this could potentially give some hope to Richard Gere for an Oscar nom.


Best Actress – Motion Picture Drama:

Jessica Chastain, Zero Dark Thirty
Marion Cotillard, Rust and Bone
Helen Mirren, Hitchcock
Naomi Watts, The Impossible
Rachel Weisz, The Deep Blue Sea

No Quvenzhane Wallis for Beasts of the Southern Wild? Yeah, she’s six but come on! That was one of the best performances of the year! All the buzz in this case is around Jessica Chastain.


Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy:

Jack Black, Bernie
Bradley Cooper, Silver Linings Playbook
High Jackman, Les Miserables
Ewen McGregor, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
Bill Murray, Hyde Park on Hudson

This will go to Jackman or Cooper. Their two films should sweep the Musical or Comedy categories.


Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy:

Emily Blunt, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
Judy Dench, Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Jennifer Lawrence, Silver Linings Playbook
Maggie Smith, Quartet
Meryl Streep, Hope Springs

Jennifer Lawrence should win this pretty easily, but everyone does love Meryl Streep quite a bit. Wonder why…


Best Supporting Actor – Motion Picture:

Alan Arkin, Argo
Leonardo DiCaprio, Django Unchained
Philip Seymour Hoffman, The Master
Tommy Lee Jones, Lincoln
Christoph Waltz, Django Unchained

What an awesome list of actors who had great performances this year. I can’t even choose who I want to win(partially because Django Unchained isn’t out yet).


Best Supporting Actress – Motion Picture:

Amy Adams, The Master
Sally Field, Lincoln
Anne Hathaway, Les Miserables
Helen Hunt, The Sessions
Nicole Kidman, The Paperboy

Nicole Kidman is the shocker here. The Paperboy has gotten almost no awards hype since its release. Expect Field or Hathaway to take home the globe.


Best Screenplay:

Zero Dark Thirty
Silver Linings Playbook
Django Unchained

No surprises here, but it should be noted Django Unchained has really come out of no where in this awards season.


Best Original Song:

“For You” (Act of Valor) by Keith Urban
“Not Running Anymore” (Stand Up Guys) by Stand Up Guys
“Safe and Sound” (The Hunger Games) by Taylor Swift
“Skyfall” (Skyfall) by Adele
“Suddenly” (Les Miserables)

I suspect Adele is going to have more than Grammys on her mantle.


Best Original Score:

Life of Pi
Anna Karenina
Cloud Atlas

I’m glad to see Cloud Atlas get recognized here, the score was absolutely beautiful and a great motif throughout the nearly three-hour epic.


Best Foreign Language Film:

A Royal Affair
The Untouchables
Kon Tiki
Rust and Bone

I’m going to level with you, I haven’t seen any of these yet. But I have been hearing amazing things about Amour.


Best Animated Feature Film:

Hotel Transylvania
Rise of the Guardians
Wreck-It Ralph

I’m pulling for Wreck-It Ralph here, which felt much closer to a Pixar film than Brave.



Best Drama Series:

Breaking Bad
Boardwalk Empire
Downton Abbey
The Newsroom

The Newsroom takes the place of Mad Men.  Doesn’t really matter though, we all know Homeland is going to win. Even though I’m pulling for Breaking Bad.


Best Comedy Series:

The Big Bang Theory
Modern Family

Smash is a shocking nomination here, especially since Parks and Recreation got snubbed. Modern Family will likely win but I’ll be pulling for Lena Dunham’s first season of the steller HBO comedy Girls.


Best Actor in a Television Drama Series:

Steve Buscemi, Boardwalk Empire
Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad
Jeff Daniels, The Newsroom
Jon Hamm, Mad Men
Damian Lewis, Homeland

I’m loving all of the love for Newsroom. And Jon Hamm got recognized. They got this category right.


Best Actress in a Television Drama Series:

Connie Britton, Nashville
Glenn Close, Damages
Claire Danes, Homeland
Michelle Dockery, Downton Abbey
Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife

This will likely go to Claire Danes, but how exciting is it that Connie Britton go a nomination for Nashville!


Best Actor in a Television Comedy Series:

Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock
Don Cheadle, House of Lies
Louis C.K., Louis
Matt LeBlanc, Episodes
Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory

Louis C.K. is my pick, but LeBlanc, Parsons or Baldwin will likely be awarded.


Best Actress in a Television Comedy Series:

Zooey Deschanel, New Girl
Julia-Louis Dreyfus, Veep
Lena Dunham, Girls
Tina Fey, 30 Rock
Amy Poehler, Parks and Recreation

Something cool about the nominees in this category: both of the hosts, and real life best friends, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler snagged noms. Expect some great banter.


Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television:

Game Change
The Girl
Hatfields & McCoys
The Hour
Political Animals

Game Change should snag this just as it did at the Emmys.


Best Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture made for Television:

Kevin Costner, Hatfields and McCoys
Benedict Cumberbatch, Sherlock
Woody Harrleson, Game Change
Toby Jones, The Girl
Clive Owen, Hemingway and Gellhorn

Benedict Cumberbatch scoring a nomination is awesome. Glad to see the BBC series get some recognition.


Best Actress in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture made for Television:

Nicole Kidman, Hemingway and Gellhorn
Jessica Lange, American Horror Story: Asylum
Sienna Miller, The Girl
Julianne Moore, Game Change
Sigourney Weaver, Political Animals

Expect Julianne Moore to walk away with the award, but I can’t help but be happy to see Jessica Lange acknowledged again for her fantastic work on American Horror Story.


Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture made for Television:

Max Greenfield, New Girl
Ed Harris, Game Change
Danny Huston, Magic City
Mandy Patinkin, Homeland
Eric Stonestreet, Modern Family

This is the category I care least about. None of these nominees are who I would pick (Aaron Paul?! Peter Dinklage?!), therefore I have no preference as to who wins.


Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture made for Television:

Hayden Panettiere, Nashville
Archie Punjabi, The Good Wife
Sarah Paulson, Game Change
Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey
Sofia Vergara, Modern Family

Hayden Panettierre and Sarah Paulson are my favorites here. I’ll admit, I’m really tired of Sofia Vergara, who will likely be competing with Maggie Smith for the win in this category.


There you have it folks. Awards season looks a whole lot different now, who do you want to win?
