'LINCOLN' leads the Golden Globe 2013 nominations with seven nods.

Steven Spielberg's biopic about former US President Abraham Lincoln is up for a host of top prizes including Best Drama, Best Director, Best Actor for Daniel Day-Lewis and Best Screenplay.

Quentin Tarantino's western flick 'Django Unchained' and political drama 'Argo' follow close behind with five nominations each.

Critically-acclaimed films 'Zero Dark Thirty', 'Les Miserables' and 'Silver Linings Playbook' each received four nods.

With three nominations are 'Life of Pi', dark cult drama 'The Master' and heart-warming British comedy 'Salmon Fishing in the Yemen'.

The great Dames of British film, Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Helen Mirren, all have acting nods for 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel', 'Quartet' and 'Hitchcock' respectively.

Surprises include Nicole Kidman's Best Supporting Actress nomination for 'The Paperboy' and John Hawkes and Helen Hunt being up for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress for their performances in 'The Sessions'.

Adele has been nominated for Best Original Song for her James Bond theme tune 'Skyfall', with her biggest competition likely to come from 'Suddenly' from Tom Hooper's adaptation of stage musical 'Les Miserables'.

The awards are considered to be an important precursor to the Oscars and the films are voted for by members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which organises the ceremony.

Last year's winners included Meryl Streep, Octavia Spencer and Jean Dujardin, who all went on to receive Academy Awards.

The nominations were announced Thursday morning (13.12.12) by Jessica Alba, Ed Helms and Megan Fox.

The Golden Globe Awards - aired by NBC - will be hosted by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey and will take place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Hollywood on January 13.
