The Hollywood Foreign Press Association - don't worry, no one has any idea who these people are - has voted and it's Lincoln that won the group over this year. The HFPA announced the nominees for the 2013 Golden Globes, with Steven Spielberg's epic drama Lincoln starring Daniel Day-Lewis as US President Abraham Lincoln earned the most love from the group, collecting 7 nominations including Best Film, Best Director, and Best Actor. And in a strange twist, the HFPA opted to recognize Salmon Fishing in the Yemen - a movie that came and went without having any impact, and which got overwhelming bad reviews - with nominations in the best comedy, best actor in a comedy and best actress in a comedy categories. Go figure.
