Best Director Golden Globes nominees include Ben Affleck, Steven Spielberg, Kathryn Bigelow, Quentin Tarantino and Ang Lee.

The 70th annual Golden Globes nominations were announced on Thursday, Dec. 13. The ceremony is set for Jan. 13, 2013 with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey as co-hosts.

Affleck was nominated for directing "Argo," which also scored a Best Motion Picture - Drama nomination. It's Affleck's first Golden Globe nomination for directing; he previously directed "Gone Baby Gone" and "The Town."

Spielberg was nominated for "Lincoln," which -- like "Argo" -- earned a Best Motion Picture - Drama nod. Bigelow was selected for "Zero Dark Thirty"; Bigelow was also nominated for directing "The Hurt Locker" at the 2010 Golden Globes, but lost to James Cameron for "Avatar." She defeated Cameron at the 2010 Academy Awards, however, in the same category.

Lee grabbed his nod for "Life of Pi"; Tarantino, a Hollywood Foreign Press favorite, scored one for "Django Unchained. »
