The 70th Golden Globes gave some added awards-season thrust to two films that have been highly favored by movie critics, “Lincoln” and “Argo,” and also inserted into the mix a couple of movies that had been snubbed by the recent Screen Actors Guild nominations, “Zero Dark Thirty” and “Django Unchained.”

As the Academy Awards loom in the background, nominees in the motion picture category provide public relations fuel to studios in pursuit of the golden statues.

The Globe nominations for best drama may provide a glimpse of the frontrunners for Oscars. The list includes “Lincoln,” “Life of Pi,” “Zero Dark Thirty,” “Argo,” and “Django Unchained.”

Critically acclaimed films “Les Miserables,” “Moonrise Kingdom,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” and “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” nabbed best picture nominations in the musical or comedy category.

“Lincoln” was the clear leader in the motion picture category with seven Globe nominations, including best dramatic motion picture, best director (Steven Spielberg) and best dramatic actor, (Daniel Day-Lewis).

“Argo” and “Django Unchained” both snagged five nominations.
