Lincoln is leading the way at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards with seven nominations.

The movie is already doing well during awards season, picking up an impressive four nods at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards yesterday.

The Golden Globe nominations were announced by Jessica Alba, Megan Fox and Ed Helms in Los Angeles this morning. Hot on the heels of presidential drama Lincoln are Argo and Django Unchained, which are both up for five gongs.

All three films are in the running for the coveted best drama movie prize, alongside Zero Dark Thirty and Life of Pi.

Les Misérables continued its run of nomination success, receiving mentions in four categories. The movie will battle it out against Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen and Silver Linings Playbook for the best musical/comedy picture.

Steven Spielberg's turn at the helm of Lincoln has earned him a best director nomination, alongside Ben Affleck for Argo, Ang Lee for Life of Pi, Quentin Tarantino for Django Unchained and Kathryn Bigelow for Zero Dark Thirty.

The best drama actor prize will either go to Lincoln star Daniel Day-Lewis, Richard Gere, John Hawkes, Denzel Washington or Joaquin Phoenix.

The female version will be hotly contested between Jessica Chastain, Marion Cotillard, Dame Helen Mirren, Naomi Watts and Rachel Weisz.

Anne Hathaway has been widely tipped for Oscars glory thanks to her role as Fantine in Les Misérables and has received a best supporting actress nomination. Amy Adams, Sally Field, Helen Hunt and Nicole Kidman round out the category.

The men's nominations went to Alan Arkin, Leonardo DiCaprio, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Tommy Lee Jones and Christoph Waltz.

The Golden Globes has some separate categories for drama and musical/comedy movies, with Jack Black, Bradley Cooper, Hugh Jackman, Ewan McGregor and Bill Murray nominated for the best musical/comedy actor gong.

In the running for the women's prize are Emily Blunt, Dame Judi Dench, Jennifer Lawrence, Dame Maggie Smith and Meryl Streep.

TV stars and series also got mentions, with Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey, Homeland and The Newsroom all up for the best drama prize.

It was a good day for Homeland, with Damian Lewis receiving a best drama actor nod and Claire Danes up for best drama actress.

The best musical or comedy TV show gong will go to either The Big Bang Theory, Episodes, Girls, Modern Family or Smash.

The ceremony will be held on January 13 in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are hosting proceedings.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
