And the Golden Globe goes to . . .

This morning nominations were announced for the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, which NBC will air on Sunday, January 13 (my birthday!), with two of my favorite funny ladies, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, as the hosts. And Jodie Foster will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award for her "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment".

Below is a list of all the nominees (with my predictions in pink):

Django Unchained
Life of Pi
Zero Dark Thirty

Best Actress in a Drama

Naomi Watts, The Impossible
Rachel Weisz, The Deep Blue Sea

Best Actor in a Drama
Daniel Day-Lewis, Lincoln
Richard Gere, Arbitrage
John Hawkes, The Sessions (although I'm sure he's great as Lincoln, I'm not a big Daniel Day-Lewis fan, so I'm choosing Mr. Hawkes, whose performance has also garnered rave reviews)
Joaquin Phoenix, The Master
Denzel Washington, Flight
