Golden Globes: Nicole Kidman, 'Salmon Fishing' Pepper Kooky List of Noms

If the Oscars are the pedigreed “big dog” of the annual awards season, the Golden Globes would be the scrappy, free-spirited “cat” that doesn’t take itself quite as seriously and, as a result, manages to have a bit more fun with its process.
Voted on by members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the Golden Globes honor the finest in movies and television from the previous year. But because they divide their nominees into two categories – Drama and Musical/Comedy – the Globes are able to honor twice as many talents as rival awards programs, meaning more worthy performers are invited to the dance. 
This morning, the Globes went with a handful of Oscar frontrunners – Lincoln, Les Miserables and Argo all scored multiple nominations – while also sprinkling support in some unexpected corners. Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, which was blanked by the Screen Actors Guild, returned to the conversation with noms for Leonardo DiCaprio and Christoph Waltz, as well as Picture, Director and Screenplay. 
Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, however, surprised many with multiple nominations. And Nicole Kidman continued her improbable march to possible Oscar recognition with a nomination for her over-the-top performance in The Paperboy
More often than not, the Globes single out individuals and films that will move on to compete for an Oscar. Sometimes, though, the HFPA is guilty of nominating celebrities they’d like to see in their audience for the televised event, as when the group nominated both Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie from The Tourist
Speaking of the show, the Golden Globes will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, giving us two excellent reasons to tune in. The show will be televised live on NBC on Sunday, Jan. 13 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
Below is the full list of film nominees for the 2013 Golden Globe Awards...
