NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – And the nominees are…

The Hollywood awards season is off to a fast start, beginning with the Golden Globe nominations which were announced Thursday morning in Los Angeles.

Steven Spielberg’s Civil War epic “Lincoln” led with seven nominations, among them best drama, best director for Spielberg and acting honors for Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones.

Tied for second-place with five nominations each, including best drama are Ben Affleck’s Iran hostage-crisis thriller “Argo” and Quentin Tarantino’s slave-turned-bounty-hunter tale “Django Unchained.”

Other best-drama nominees are Ang Lee’s shipwreck story “Life of Pi” and Kathryn Bigelow’s Osama bin Laden manhunt thriller “Zero Dark Thirty.”

Globe attention can give contenders a boost for Hollywood’s top honors, the Academy Awards, whose nominations come out Jan. 10, three days before the Globe ceremony.

Along with 14 film prizes, the Globes hand out awards in 11 television categories.

Jodie Foster, a two-time Oscar and Globe winner for “The Accused” and “The Silence of the Lambs,” will receive the group’s Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement at the Jan. 13 ceremony.

There will be some friendly rivalry among the hosts at the Globe ceremony, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Both were nominated for best actress in a TV comedy, Fey for “30 Rock” and Poehler for “Parks and Recreation.”

Fey and Poehler follow Ricky Gervais, who was host the last three years and rubbed some Hollywood egos the wrong way with sharp wisecracks about A-list stars and the foreign press association itself.

With stars sharing drinks and dinner, the Globes have a reputation as one of Hollywood’s loose and unpredictable awards gatherings. Winners occasionally have been off in the restroom when their names were announced, and there have been moments of onstage spontaneity such as Jack Nicholson mooning the crowd or Ving Rhames handing over his trophy to fellow nominee Jack Lemmon.
