Awards Season 2013: Golden Globe Nominations

Today, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced the nominations for the 70th Golden Globe Awards. 

One noticeable difference between the Golden Globes and the Oscars is that the Golden Globes split three of the awards into separate categories, so Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress are awarded for both 'Drama' and 'Musical or Comedy'. 

A nomination or win at the Golden Globes is often seen as a precursor to Oscar success.
