Golden Globes 2013 Nominations Announced

14 December 2012

Tis the season to be jolly - awards season

We'd like to thank the Golden Globes without whom, few of the Oscar hopefuls could generate traction. We're being cynical of course - it's not show-art, it's show-business and awards mean publicity and increased box office.

Glitz and glamour are the foundations of the movie industry and ever since the Hollywood Foreign Press Association moved their Golden Globe awards ahead of the Oscars, they have grown in profile and importance.

So what can we expect from the ceremony when it takes place on January 13th? Well, Ricky Gervais' three-year stint as host is over with comedians Tina Fey and Amy Poehler taking over at the lectern. Expect a less abrasive but equally searing tone.

In terms of nominations, Ben Affleck's Argo and Steven Spielberg's Lincoln lead the way in the film categories, while Sky Atlantic stalwarts Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire are vying for Best Series in the TV section.

See below for the full list of nominations.
