2013 Golden Globes Nominations for Movies and Television

The Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA). The awards will be handed out on January 15 and are widely considered to be a good indicator of Oscar potential. While the numerous critics’ nominations and awards revealed over the past couple of weeks can often be even more reliable in predicting who will win the Academy Awards, it’s the Golden Globes which have the highest public visibility and are said to signal the traditional “start of Oscar season.”

Last year’s big motion picture winner was The Artist with three awards, including Best Picture (Comedy or Musical), Actor (Jean Dujardin), and Score (Ludovic Bource). The Descendants picked up the Best Drama trophy along with Best Actor (George Clooney). Martin Scorsese won Best Director for Hugo, while the remaining actor trophies went to Michelle Williams (Actress for My Week with Marilyn), Octavia Spencer (Supporting Actress for The Help), and Christopher Plummer (Supporting Actor for Beginners).

This year, Steven Spielberg's Lincoln tops the movie list with seven nominations, including Best Picture - Drama, Director, Actor - Drama (Daniel Day-Lewis), Supporting Actress (Sally Field), Screenplay (Tony Kushner), and Original Score (John Williams). Argo and Django Unchained picked up five nominations each.

Currently celebrating its 70th anniversary in Hollywood, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is a group of critics and reporters for overseas outlets representing 55 countries with a combined readership of more than 250 million. Their publications include leading newspapers and magazines in Europe, Asia, Australasia, and Latin America. Founded in the 1940s during World War II, the HFPA was originally comprised of a handful of LA-based overseas journalists who sought to bridge the international community with Hollywood, and to provide distraction from the hardships of war through film. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s annual Golden Globe Awards, the third most watched awards show on television, have enabled the non-profit organization to donate more than $15 million in the past 19 years to entertainment-related charities, as well as funding scholarships and other programs for future film and television professionals. In the year 2012 the donations reached a total of $1,243,00 in grants destined to 40 different entertainment-related non-profits, institutions and charities.

The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards will be telecast live on NBC with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on Sunday, January 13, 2013 at 8 PM Eastern/5 PM Pacific, from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.
