The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced the 70th Golden Globe Awards nominees this morning. The nominations were revealed at an event in Los Angeles at 5:15 a.m. local time.

In film, Lincoln led the 2013 Golden Globe nominations with seven nominations, followed by Django Unchained and Argo with five apiece.

The surprises here come in the form of Richard Gere for Best Actor in a Drama, who has been on the outskirts of the awards race up until now, finally getting recognition for his great performance as a troubled hedge fund manager. The HFPA seemed to adore Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, as it walked away with three nominations for Best Picture Musical or Comedy, and Best Actor and Actress Musical or Comedy for Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt.

Nicole Kidman continued to surge in the Oscar race, picking up another nomination for Best Supporting Actress in The Paperboy after yesterday’s SAG nomination. Having not been able to screen the film for SAG guild members, Django Unchained enjoyed a nice turnout for the Golden Globes, as both Leonardo Dicaprio and Christoph Waltz made it into Best Supporting Actor, along with Best Director, Screenplay, and Picture noms.

In terms of notable snubs, indie darling Beasts of the Southern Wild was completely shut out of the Golden Globes nominations list. Despite getting four nominations apiece, Les Miserables failed to garner a Best Director nod for Tom Hooper, while Robert De Niro was shut out of Best Supporting Actor for Silver Linings Playbook.

Despite a serious awards season push, Matthew McConaughey failed to pick up a nomination for his terrific turn in Magic Mike.

    OMFG TAYLOR SWIFT HAS GOT TO GET THE GG!!!!!! S&S defines March/April 2012 for me.

    EDIT: Just saw Adele is nominated too. Sh*t.

  • Charles

    This has got to be a joke, and a very bad one. The TV shows categories are full of either old series repeating nomination or cable series that nobody watches…

    • http://twitter.com/vonchambers Devon Chambers

      Breaking Bad is the best show on TV, not sure what else you would want on there

    • Gary65

      What are you talking about? Nashville, Girls & Veep are new show & loads of people watches Homeland. And they’re not favouring cable shows. If they were, Game of Thrones would be nominated(and, frankly, I’m quite shocked that they weren’t). Name one person/show up there that doesn’t deserve their nomination. Who did you want?

  • Jessica

    And…where are Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, and the Office for best Comedy or Musical? The Office hasn’t had its best year, but isn’t a send off nod warranted? And Nick Offerman gets snubbed once again. Of course. On a happier note: Wooo for Veep and Game Change!

  • GN

    YAYA! Benedict Cumberbatch for Sherlock………and of course Jennifer Lawerence!

  • Matt W

    I am happy with the nominations this year. Skyfall for best song! Thank god!!! I’m so glad that skyfall is getting recognition. Though I wish Daniel Craig got a nom for Skyfall since he gave a fantastic performance as James Bond an gave more life an emotion to the character since Sean Connery. He even got robbed of a nom last year for Dragon Tattoo. An I’m glad Django got a few noms too.

  • upper_westsider

    LOVE the “Best Television Series, Drama” category. Those are all great shows. Glad I’m not a voter. Too hard to choose. I’m excited about the “Best Drama” for film too. I think this was a really good year for dramas.

  • Bethany

    Why all the love for Eric Stonestreet? I may never understand this.

  • Jake

    Were is Game of Thrones?

    • Matt W

      *Where is……..not were is

  • Alex

    No Charlie Hunnam and Sons Of Anarchy?

  • Abi

    no game of thrones? wtf!

    • Shelby Walker

      My thoughts exactly.

  • Sisi

    Since when has Les Mis been a COMEDY?!?! cause last time I checked it was definitely NOT A COMEDY.

    • Marya

      That category is Comedy or Musical actually. That is why Les Miz is listed there. That also applies to Best Comedy Actor/Actress. They should fix that

  • http://twitter.com/Simonececilie Simone Hansen

    I hope Benedict Cumberbatch wins – it’s high time he gets recognised for his brilliant acting in Sherlock. And I really hope The Untouchables wins Best Foreign Movie. And I really hope Downton Abbey wins too, even if it seems impossible with worldwide fave, Homeland, in the same category.

  • http://twitter.com/hannahfofanna24 Hannah Ridgewell

    Why did they add a song to Les Miz? This makes me sooooo nervous. Please do not mess up my favorite musical of all time

  • Amber

    Fringe, and John Noble get shafted once again. :(

  • http://twitter.com/LaCoraDora Cora Dora

    I said before that I didn’t need him to win, just get nominated, but I might really want Ben Affleck to win Best Director. However, the category has some pretty tough contenders.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1045615098 Riana-Tiana Menezes

      Even though Argo is one of my favorite movies this year, I’m rooting for Ang Lee because Life of Pi was just extraordinary.

  • es1831

    No Parenthood– a TV show whos actors are doing an absolutely amazing job at having me bawl my eyes out every week COME ON

    • morsmordre79

      THANK YOU! Finally some love for Parenthood! :) It’s a brilliant show and I still don’t understand how it’s now in its fourth season and still hasn’t gotten any major recognition. Smh.

  • kkfaye

    I wish smaller shows would get recognition more often, especially when it comes to awards that are based on acting ability. There are actors/actresses in less popular shows like Supernatural who have some of the most breathtaking scenes I have ever seen.

  • http://www.hypable.com/ Kristin LeMunyon

    I LOVE that Salmon Fishing received some nods!!!!!

  • http://twitter.com/burforde Elliot Burford

    Noooo! I wanted Florence + the Machine – Breath of Life for best song :(
    Adele definitely does deserve it though.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dlmarvin05 Dominique Marvin

    I don’t like this list at all

  • Alyssa

    No Game of Thrones or Parks and Rec…I am cry.

  • Jill

    I hope Jennifer Lawrence gets best actress in a comedy or musical. I also really hope that Brave gets the best animated film because I personally really enjoyed it. “Safe and Sound” should also win for best original song in motion picture because it fits The Hunger Games so well. I’m not a Swift fan but it was beautiful.

    • Stagegirl12

      The Civil Wars need to get more credit for Safe and Sound because they are what make that song good. Their song writing ability and harmonies are beautiful. Anyone who liked that song should look up the Civil Wars.

  • BEN

    yay Smash!

  • B

    I will never understand the love for The Big Bang Theory. oh well.

    • http://www.facebook.com/mary.westmoreland2 Mary Westmoreland

      i felt the same way with the office…i guess people just have different comedic tastes

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1045615098 Riana-Tiana Menezes

      Well I’m a physics geek so this show is my type of comedy. Plus all the science related jokes just crack me up.

  • Emma

    Connie Britton Connie Britton Connie Britton. She probably won’t win, but that’s okay because she and her hair are perfect.

  • Jessica

    Not too many things I’m rooting for, but I am rooting for “Safe and Sound,” Smash, and Benedict Cumberbatch. The others I’m not too opinionated about.

  • http://twitter.com/potterfan92 Raina

    Great list of nominations. Wow no Glee; this should be a sign. Surprised that Game of Thrones isn’t up there.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1045615098 Riana-Tiana Menezes

    There are some really awesome movies up for Best Picture, It will be interesting to see who wins. . . . .(im routing for Life of Pi. . . and Argo. . . and Lincoln. . . and Zero Dark Thirty.) Ugh I can’t make up my mind!

  • truffles

    I can’t believe Zero Dark Thirty recieved any mention. Couldn’t they at least wait until things in the East calm down a little bit before releasing something about Osama bin Laden as entertainment? Or maybe waiting until some more accurate information is released? It’s disgusting.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1045615098 Riana-Tiana Menezes

      By ‘East’ are you referring to Sandy? Or the Union protests?

      • Heather

        Pretty sure she means the middle east on this one. There is an east farther than the States :P

      • Guest

        Pretty sure the poster meant the MIDDLE east on this one. There is an east farther than the US :P

    • Heather

      Kathryn Bigelow was in the process of getting a movie together about the hunt for Bin Laden when he was killed, so obviously she couldn’t ignore that fact since she was so early in pre-production. However, there have been rumours about her and the screenwriter being in good contact with the Whitehouse on what happened. Obviously, we are never going to get a full truthful account of what happened because that would put a ton of people in danger, but I’ve heard it’s a really thrilled movie, and really nuanced and well done. Like most Oscar movies, it’s not necessarily the subject of a movie that makes it great, it’s how well done the movie it.

    • Guest

      Actually, Kathryn Bigelow was in the process of pre-production on a movie about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden when he was assassinated. It was only natural that she should add this to the film. Making a movie about the hunt for Bin Laden wouldn’t have been “too soon” since the hunt had been on for 10 years at that point. While I agree it is kinda soon, it was only natural she add in that they assassinate him. And I don’t think more accurate information will be released for a very long time (if ever) because it would put many peoples lives in danger if names were named. And as it goes with Awards shows like this, it’s only partially the films content that gains attention, but mostly its how well done the film is (acted, directed, etc) and with Jessica Chastain and Kathryn Bigelow making it, you can be sure it’ll be a well made, thinking movie, not pushing a political agenda.

  • Mike

    No New Girl in best Comedy Series?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=607519910 Catherine Lai

    I think they should rethink this “musical or comedy” category. It made sense when most musicals were comedies, but Les Mis is clearly a drama, and if it wins the category, that seems kind of ridiculous.
