The 2012 Golden Globe Nominations

This year's Golden Globe nominations have been announced with Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" scoring the most nods with seven. Not far behind at the Globes are "Argo" and "Django Unchained" with five; "Silver Linings Playbook," "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Les Miserables" with four; and "Life of Pi," "The Master," "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" and "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" with three.

Quite a few surprises were in store. Completely forgotten in the lead-up awards race, "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" came out of nowhere to score three nominations. On the flip side "Beasts of the Southern Wild" didn't score a single nomination. "Hotel Transylvania" made it into the Best Animated Feature Film category but "ParaNorman" didn't. Nicole Kidman's performance in the much derided "The Paperboy" scored a nod.

On the TV front, last year's love for "Game of Thrones" seems to have been transferred to "The Newsroom". "Girls," "Political Animals" and "Nashville" also proved unexpected nominees. Finally, "Game Change" looks to be the one to beat in the mini-series category.
