Golden Globes Nominations Announced

by Kayla Reed on December 13, 2012

The nominations for the 70th annual Golden Globes were announced this morning at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Hollywood. Lincoln received the most nominations, appearing in almost every drama-related category. The biggest let downs went to Mad Men, which was not nominated for best drama series (though Jon Hamm did get a nomination for best actor in a drama), and Louisiana’s darling Beasts of the Southern Wild, which received zero nominations.

A few Louisiana-related films did make the cut, though. Django Unchained, shot in New Orleans, received nominations for Best Screenplay, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor (both Leonardo DiCaprio and Christoph Waltz are nominated), and Best Drama Motion Picture. Nicole Kidman was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Paperboy, which was also shot in New Orleans. Rise of the Guardians received a nomination for Best Animated Feature. The film was executive produced and based on the book by Shreveport native and one of Animation’s Elite, William Joyce.

If there’s one thing to comfort us in this time of painful snubbery, it’s looking forward to seeing Tina Fey and Amy Poehler host the event on January 13th on NBC. Check out the full list of nominations below.
