Any planned weekend fetes are getting started early for some of Hollywood's major players as we cap off a week of nominations.
Over the past two days, films like "Lincoln," "Silver Linings Playbook," "Argo" and "Les Misérables" have reveled in nods while TV shows like "Homeland," "Downton Abbey," "Modern Family" and "Breaking Bad" have reaffirmed their status as critical favorites.
All of the recognition has left Jennifer Lawrence, a darling of critics and everyday fans alike, a little stunned. The 22-year-old actress has earned both a SAG and a Golden Globe nod for her work in David O. Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook," which is also up for the best comedic motion picture Golden Globe.
Forget the nominations for a moment and let's talk about the real reason you're going to watch the Golden Globes come January: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
The adored comic pair are going to tag-team the hosting gig next year, and we now have a taste of what's to come thanks to the first Globes promo clip.
The nominees for the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards were announced Thursday by Jessica Alba, Megan Fox and Ed Helms.
Steven Spielberg's epic on the 16th president, "Lincoln," stood out in the film categories with seven Golden Globe nominations, followed closely by Ben Affleck's "Argo" and Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained."
On the TV side, HBO's "Game Change" continues to shine this awards season, picking up a total of five nods. Showtime's thriller "Homeland" earned four, including two nods for its leads, Claire Danes and Damian Lewis.
The awards ceremony, to be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, will air January 13 at 8 p.m. ET/5p.m. PT.
Check out some of the nominees below - who do you think are clear bets?
Looks like Clint Eastwood and Frances Fisher’s daughter will join hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on stage during the 2013 Golden Globes.
Francesca Eastwood was named Miss Golden Globe by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association at an event on Thursday.
Although the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association said one should "never say never" to another Ricky Gervais-hosted Golden Globes, the HFPA's going in a different direction for 2013.
Instead of another year of laughably awkward moments as Gervais tears into Hollywood from the stage, the HFPA tapped the hilarious tag team of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. (We love Gervais, but the idea of Fey and Poehler hosting anything has our undivided attention.)
Last year critics said he was too harsh. This year they said he was too soft. But next year he might be just right.
It’s too soon to tell, but there’s a chance Ricky Gervais, the Goldilocks of awards show hosts, could return to host his fourth Golden Globe Awards in 2013.
The president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization that puts on the Globes, told The Hollywood Reporter, “Never say never.”
