Hoda on Golden Globes: 'Lincoln' was robbed

Jan. 14, 2013 at 11:53 AM ET

It's no secret that Hoda loved the movie "Lincoln." She hasn't been able to stop talking about it since she saw it back in November, reporting that Sally Field was "off the hook" and that she spent the entire film in tears.

Sadly, if you were also counting on "Lincoln" to win big in your Golden Globes pool, you may still be smarting after Sunday night's ceremony. The film was nominated in seven categories, but took home only one statuette. (Best Actor in a Drama went to Daniel Day Lewis, an Irish guy who is nigh-on unbeatable when it comes to playing Americans with interesting facial hair.)

It was probably disappointing for the filmmakers, but nobody was more affronted than president of the "Lincoln" fan club, Hoda "Lincoln Forever" Kotb.

"Lincoln had seven nominations, and got robbed," she said during Monday's chat. She admitted she was happy for Ben Affleck, who beat out Steven Spielberg for Best Director, but went on to call the lack of additional honors "ridiculous."

It's a good thing the ladies will be drinking wine again when the Academy Awards roll around.
