The nominations for the 2013 Golden Globes have been announced.  The Golden Globes are a “legitimate” award simply by virtue of A) They’ve been around for so long; B) Stars like attending because it’s a laid-back version of the Oscars where people can get an award, schmooze with other folks in Hollywood, and enjoy a nice meal.  The Golden Globes are doled out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which is a phony organization that can easily be swayed through pandering.

Most of the nominees are the usual suspects (especially in the TV categories), and there weren’t too many surprises among the film categories either.  Movies that have been doing well among critics organizations–Lincoln, Argo, Zero Dark Thirty, Silver Linings Playbook–all received their due.  The only surprise was the love shown towards Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, which racked up nominations in the Comedy/Musical category for Best Actor (Ewan McGregor), Best Actress (Emily Blunt), and Best Comedy/Musical.  With nominations in these categories, I’m surprised it didn’t pick up a nod for Best Supporting Actress for Kristin Scott Thomas, who has the movie’s standout performance.  Hit the jump for the full list of nominees.  The 70th Golden Globe Awards will air on NBC on January 13, 2013 at 8pm EST/5pm PST. [Update: We've updated the article with a promo video for the awards featuring hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.]

Some of the best comedy to be seen on NBC comes from the minds of Tina Fey (30 Rock) and Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation).  Now, the comedic duo is teaming up to take on the 70th Annual Golden Globes as hosts of the award show.  Fey, a Golden Globe winner, and Poehler, a nominee, have previously worked together on Saturday Night Live, Mean Girls and Baby Mama.  Their comedic timing and chemistry should make for quite an entertaining show.

The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards will air on NBC Sunday, January 13th from 8-11pm, EST.  Hit the jump for the full press release.
