The Best Actor nominees, Musical or Comedy, at the Golden Globes include Hugh Jackman, Bradley Cooper, Bill Murray, Jack Black and Ewan McGregor.

The Golden Globe nominations were announced on Dec. 13; the 70th annual Golden Globes will be awarded on Jan. 13, 2013. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the televised ceremony.

Jackman was nominated for Best Actor - Musical or Comedy for playing Jean Valjean in "Les Miserables." The film also expected to earn a nomination in the Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy category.

Cooper received his nomination for "Silver Linings Playbook." In the film -- which also earned a nomination for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy -- Cooper plays a mentally unstable former high school teacher who attempts to put his life back together with the help of his parents (Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver) and the beautiful-but-equally-damaged girl next door (Jennifer Lawrence, a fellow Golden Globe nominee).

Murray was chosen for playing Franklin Delano Roosevelt in "Hyde Park on Hudson." Jack Black grabbed his nod for "Bernie," while Ewan McGregor was a surprise inclusion for "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen."

At the 69th annual Golden Globes, Jean Dujardin won Best Actor - Musical or Comedy for his work in "The Artist." He beat Owen Wilson ("Midnight in Paris"), Joseph Gordon- Levitt ("50/50"), Ryan Gosling ("Crazy, Stupid, Love") and Brendan Gleeson ("The Guard").

More on Jodie Foster's big night at the Golden Globes:

After being introduced by Robert Downey Jr., Foster coyly said, "While I’m here being all confessional, I just have the sudden urge to say something I’ve never been able to air in public. A declaration that I’m a little nervous about. Not quite as nervous as my publicist, huh, Jennifer? But uh, you know, I’m just going to put it out there. Loud and proud. I’m going to need your support. I am -- single!"

Some stars didn't make the best-dressed list. From HuffPost Style:

The 2013 Golden Globes took place on Sunday night in Los Angeles, and true to form, brought out the very best in fashion and style. As it happens, they also brought out the worst in red carpet dresses, from misplaced cutouts to heavy fabric to frocks that don't belong at a prestigious awards ceremony.

From the red carpet, some of the Golden Globes best-dressed celebrities. Via HuffPost Style.

The 2013 Golden Globes had us jumping for joy. Not because some of our favorite TV shows and movies won (yay, "Homeland"), but because actresses took style chances on the red carpet this year, making for an interesting awards show (and an amazing best-dressed list).
