The Golden Globe nominations: ‘Lincoln,’ ‘Les Miserables’ and ‘Argo’ among the contenders

“Lincoln,” “Les Miserables,” “Argo” and “Silver Linings Playbook” made their completely unsurprising entrances into the Golden Globe Awards race this morning.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association revealed its nominees for the best movie and TV work of 2012, throwing expected contenders such as Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln,” Ben Affleck’s “Argo” and Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty” into the best motion picture drama race opposite underdog entries including Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” and Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi.” All five of the aforementioned filmmakers also were nominated for best director, shutting out Tom Hooper and David O. Russell for their work on “Les Miserables” and “Silver Linings Playbook,” respectively. “Lincoln” — which also earned nominations for actors Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones — leads the movie field with seven nods.

Because the Golden Globes separates its cinema honors into different categories for drama and musical or comedy, both “Les Miz” and “Silver Linings Playbook” will compete for the “lighter” top best picture honor opposite “Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” “Moonrise Kingdom” and “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen,” a little-seen indie that also earned musical-or-comedy performance nods for Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt.

In other movie-award surprises, Richard Gere was nominated for best actor in a drama for his portrayal of a financially and morally bankrupt businessman in “Arbitrage,” while Rachel Weisz snuck into the best dramatic actress race for her finely calibrated but under-the-radar performance in “The Deep Blue Sea.”

The big snub in the television category: no best drama nomination for “Mad Men.” Instead, “Boardwalk Empire,” “Breaking Bad,” “Downton Abbey,” “Homeland” (last year’s winner) and newcomer “The Newsroom” will vie for that honor. “Mad Men” was omitted from this category last year but only because it wasn’t eligible, as Season 5 had not yet aired.

The best TV musical or comedy contenders are: “The Big Bang Theory,” “Episodes,” “Girls,” “Modern Family” and, in something of a surprise, NBC’s “Smash.”

Notably, the shows that star Golden Globe hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler — “30 Rock” and “Parks and Recreation” — didn’t make the cut. But not to worry: Both ladies are nominated and competing against each other for lead actress in a comedy.
