Best Actress, Drama, Golden Globes Nominees 2013: Jessica Chastain, Marion Cotillard & Helen Mirren Among Honorees

The Best Actress, Drama Golden Globes nominations have been announced, and Jessica Chastain ("Zero Dark Thirty") and Marion Cotillard ("Rust & Bone") were among those who received nods.

Also up for nods: Helen Mirren ("Hitchcock"), Rachel Weisz ("The Deep Blue Sea") and Naomi Watts ("The Impossible").

Meryl Streep took home this award last year, honored for her work in "The Iron Lady." Streep played Margaret Thatcher, the late Prime Minister of England.

The Golden Globes will take place on Sunday, Jan. 13. Much to the delight of TV fans, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are co-hosting the broadcast. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), a historically quirky bunch, organizes the awards. As the Globes are voted on by critics and not members of the industry (like the Academy Awards, which are voted on by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences), they are only a somewhat valuable indicator of the Oscar race.

Information on the Best Actress nominees on the television side of the Golden Globes is available at HuffPost TV. A live blog of the nominations is available below the following gallery.

Did Jodie Foster Come Out?

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!"

We Agree On This

@ m1keh0gan :

J-Law rocks. I think she wins Best Actress next month on the strength of being awesome tonight.

Gaining Momentum

@ Breznican :

Most interesting theory heard at Globes: Argo gets Best Picture Oscar as rest of Academy overcompensates for directors' Affleck snub.

Staying Classy

@ AmyKinLA :

Affleck just WON'T say he's upset about the Oscar snub. Says he's a member of the Academy & so are the filmmakers he admires. #GoldenGlobes

She Beat Meryl

Remember when Jennifer Lawrence said "I beat Meryl" and everyone thought she was slamming Meryl Streep and not referencing "First Wives Club."

Flashback!

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.

Flashback!

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).
