Few surprises in this morning's Golden Globe nominations

Awards season is just starting up in Hollywood. Nichelle Turner joins Soledad with the 70th Annual Golden Globe nominations that were just announced this morning.

Argo, Django Unchained, Life of Pi, Lincoln, and Zero Dark Thirty were all nominated for Best motion Picture Drama, as were their directors. On the comedy side, Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Les Miserables, Moonrise Kingdom, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, and Silver Linings Playbook took the honors.

Not many surprises for the best picture choices, but a few in the Actor category. Richard Gere nabbed a nomination for his work in Arbitrage and, after bad-mouthing awards and criticizing their merit, Joaquin Phoenix earned a nomination for his work in The Master.  

The most evident snubs from the awards are Anthony Hopkins for his portrayal of the legendary director in Hitchcock and Keira Knightly as tragic lover Anna Karenina.

The biggest award for the evening named after its first recipient and famed director, Cecil B. Demille will be given to Jodie Foster. Foster began her career as a child and starred in Taxi Driver, Silence of the Lambs, and Nell. She has been nominated seven times before, winning twice.

Hosted by nominees themselves Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, both nominated in Best Actress in a Comedy Television Series. They are taking over for Ricky Gervais, who hosted 2010, 2011, and 2012.
