Girl Power at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards, which are set to take place Sunday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

For those tuning in on TV, the Hollywood party/awards show will begin at 5 p.m. Pacific (8 p.m. Eastern) on Sunday and will be aired live across the country on NBC. The red carpet officially starts at 2:30 p.m. Pacific (5:30 p.m. Eastern) and the pre-show will air on NBC at 4 p.m. Pacific (7 p.m. Eastern).

The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. hands out the annual accolades to members of the television and film industry. Fey, of NBC’s “30 Rock,” and Poehler, of NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” are both up for lead actress in a television series — comedy or musical. When Fey and Poehler teamed up in 2008 they performed their viral parodies of Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton, respectively, on “Saturday Night Live.” Will we see more of that hilarity as they replace comedian Ricky Gervais as Globes host after a controversial three-year run?

Leading the pack of film nominees this year is Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln,” which scored a record seven nominations, including best dramatic film, director and acting nods for Daniel Day-Lewis, Tommy Lee Jones and Sally Field. “Lincoln” also led Thursday’s Academy Award nominations with 12 nods.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. nominated a selection of dramatic films that focus on other U.S.-centered themes too. The category includes Quentin Tarantino’s spaghetti western “Django Unchained,” Ben Affleck’s Iranian hostage crisis drama “Argo” and Kathryn Bigelow’s account of the search for Osama bin Laden in “Zero Dark Thirty”. Ang Lee’s shipwreck epic “Life of Pi” is also nominated for dramatic film.

In TV land, HBO’s “Game Change” and “The Girl,” BBC’s six-part period piece “The Hour,” History Channel’s “Hatfields & McCoys” and USA Network’s “Political Animals” are up for best TV miniseries or movie.

“The Big Bang Theory,” “Episodes,” “Girls” and “Smash” are up against reigning TV comedy winner “Modern Family.”

In the TV drama category, “Breaking Bad,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “Downton Abbey: Season 2″ and “The Newsroom” are up against last year’s winner, “Homeland.” “Downton Abbey’s” first season took home the Golden Globe for best miniseries, but the “Masterpiece Classic” series is now being categorized with the best TV drama label.
