‘Lincoln’ tops Golden Globes nominations

The Golden Globes began doing its part for the annual awards season glut, announcing a mess of nominations Thursday that don’t mean much except that famous people will gather on Jan. 13 to mingle with one another, promote their movies for Oscars, and get their freshly exfoliated faces on television.

Not surprisingly, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — known in some circles as “The Hollywood Foreign Waiters Association” — went for “Lincoln” in a big way. It leads the movie nominations with seven, including for best picture, best director (Steven Spielberg), and best actor (Daniel Day-Lewis). “Argo” earned five nominations including best picture and best director (Ben Affleck), as did “Django Unchained,” including best picture and best director (Quentin Tarantino).
