The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominations for the Golden Globe Awards Thursday morning. In the movie categories, Lincoln and Django Unchained earned multiple nominations, while Homeland was a big winner on the TV side.
Lincoln was the most honored film, earning seven nominations, while Showtime’s Homeland led the regular series TV categories with four, notes The Hollywood Reporter. HBO's TV movie Game Change also earned five nominations.
There were plenty of surprises as well, with Nicole Kidman again getting attention for The Paperboy. Her best supporting actress nomination for the film comes after her peers at the Screen Actors Guild nominated her on Wednesday. She also earned a nomination for best actress in a TV miniseries or movie for Hemingway & Gellhorn, which also earned her a SAG nomination.
Surprisingly, Tom Hooper was not nominated for best director for Les Miserables. Instead, the nominees are Steven Spielberg (Lincoln), Ben Affleck (Argo), Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained) and Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty).
Salmon Fishing from the Yemen, a film released earlier this year, also earned some surprise nominations for best picture - comedy/musical, best actor - comedy/musical (Ewan McGregor) and best actress - comedy/musical (Emily Blunt).

The films nominated for best picture - comedy/musical include Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, Silver Linings Playbook, Moonrise Kingdom, Les Miserables and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
