'Lincoln' leads with seven Golden Globe nominations

‘Lincoln’ – Steven Spielberg’s epic set around the time of the US civil war – leads the nominations for the 2013 Golden Globes.

The 19th century drama, starring Daniel Day Lewis, received seven nods.

Quentin Tarantino’s slavery-era western ‘Django Unchained’ and the Iran hostage drama ‘Argo’ each received five nominations.

As well as best actor and best director, ‘Lincoln’ has been recognised for its script, musical score and for the roles of best supporting actor and actress by Tommy Lee Jones and Sally Field.

The Golden Globes are often an early indicator of a film’s likely Oscar success.

The gongs, which also honour the best TV shows, are handed out each year by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

The next awards will be held on January 13 in Beverly Hills.
