Here's what's being talked about in pop culture:

• The Golden Globe nominations are out, and "12 Years a Slave" and "American Hustle" are on top with seven nominations each. [Variety]

• Lionsgate has bought the film rights to Dr. Reza Aslan's "Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth," a best-seller that was deemed "controversial" just because some media types (I'm looking at you, Fox News) had a fit that a Muslim scholar would write about Jesus. [The Hollywood Reporter]

• Speaking of Fox News and notable Christmas icons, Fox's Megyn Kelly declared last night that there's no such thing as a black Santa Claus. (Never mind that there's no such thing as a Santa Claus, black or white or whatever.) [The Wire]
