• Django Unchained and Argo are on five
• Les Miserables, Silver Linings Playbook and Zero Dark Thirty trail with four apiece
Steven Spielberg's presidential drama Lincoln leads the field at this year's Golden Globe nominations with seven nods, including best director, best drama and best actor. Ben Affleck's Argo and Quentin Tarantino's much-acclaimed Django Unchained are hot on its heels with five, while Les Miserables, Silver Linings Playbook and Zero Dark Thirty follow with four apiece.
Trailing the leaders with three nominations are Ang Lee's Life of Pi, Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master and, more surprisingly, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.
Both Judi Dench and Maggie Smith have acting nods – the former for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which also is up for best comedy or musical; the later for her role in Quartet. Helen Mirren is nominated best actress for Hitchcock, that film's sole mention.
