Golden Globes 2013, Thursday’s Golden Globes nominations for best performance by a lead actress in a motion picture drama nearly mirrored Wednesday’s announcement for the Screen Actors Guild lead actress nominees with Jessica Chastain facing off against Marion Cotillard, Helen Mirren and Naomi Watts in both contests.

Those actresses are joined in the Golden Globe balloting by Rachel Weisz, honored for her role as a moneyed housewife who falls for an ex-fighter pilot before plunging into suicidal despair.

Chastain portrays a relentless CIA analyst on the hunt for Osama bin Laden in director Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty.” French actress Cotillard stars in romantic drama “Rust and Bone” as a killer whale trainer, tragically injured in a workplace accident, who becomes romantically enmeshed with a down-on-his-luck boxer.
