The best movie Golden Globes nominees include "Les Miserables," "Argo," "Lincoln," "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Silver Linings Playbook."
The 70th annual Golden Globes will be awarded on Jan. 13, 2013. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the ceremony, which airs on NBC.
As had been expected, "Les Miserables" was nominated in the Best Picture - Musical or Comedy category. Tom Hooper's epic adaptation of the famed musical was joined by "Silver Linings Playbook," "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" and "Bernie" in the Musical or Comedy category, which honors the best musicals and comedies of the year. (The term "musical or comedy" can be bent to fit the needs of the studios; last year, "My Week With Marilyn," a drama about Marilyn Monroe, was eligible in this category because of two musical sequences.)
On the drama end of things, "Lincoln," "Argo" and "Zero Dark Thirty" were all singled out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Those films are joined by "Django Unchained" and "Life of PI" in the category.
Last year, "The Descendants" won for Best Motion Picture - Drama, while "The Artist" won for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy. Both films wound up scoring subsequent Oscar nominations, with "The Artist" winning for Best Picture.

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!"

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

@ 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."

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).
