2019 Golden Globes: Dick Cheney biopic ‘Vice’ leads field with six nominations

The political film “Vice” made a big move in the race to Oscar Thursday morning, picking up six Golden Globe Award nominations Thursday morning.

Adam McKay’s movie snagged nods for best comedy or musical and best actor for Christian Bale, who stars as Former Vice President Dick Cheney.

Oscar contender “A Star Is Born” is in the drama category with “If Beale Street Could Talk,” “BlacKkKlansman,” “Black Panther” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.” In competition for the night’s other major prize – best comedy/musical – are “The Favourite,” “Green Book,” “Mary Poppins Returns,” “Crazy Rich Asians” and “Vice.”

FX’s miniseries “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” led all TV nominees with four honors.

For best dramatic actress, Lady Gaga (“A Star Is Born”) faces off against Glenn Close (“The Wife”), Melissa McCarthy (“Can You Ever Forgive Me”), Nicole Kidman (“Destroyer”) and Rosamund Pike (“A Private War”).

In the best dramatic actor field, Cooper takes on Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”), Lucas Hedges (“Boy Erased”), John David Washington (“BlacKkKlansman”) and Willem Dafoe (“At Eternity’s Gate”).

“The Favourite” star Olivia Colman is a favorite for lead actress in a comedy/musical, joining Emily Blunt (“Mary Poppins Returns”), Elsie Fisher (“Eighth Grade”), Charlize Theron (“Tully”) and Constance Wu (“Crazy Rich Asians”).

Up for lead actor in a comedy or musical along with Bale are Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Mary Poppins Returns”), Viggo Mortensen (“Green Book”), Robert Redford (“The Old Man & the Gun”) and John C. Reilly (“Stan & Ollie”).

Bale’s onscreen “Vice” wife Adams is up for best supporting actress in a category that also includes Claire Foy (“First Man”), Regina King (“If Beale Street Could Talk”) and “The Favourite” co-stars Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz.

Supporting actor nods went to Mahershala Ali (“Green Book”), Timothee Chalamet (“Beautiful Boy”), Adam Driver (“BlacKkKlansman”), Richard E. Grant (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) and Sam Rockwell (“Vice”).

The animated-movie category was very heroic, with “Incredibles 2” and “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” joining “Mirai,” “Ralph Breaks the Internet” and “Isle of Dogs,” which also snagged an original score nomination.

The 76th annual Golden Globes, hosted by Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh, will air Jan. 6 on NBC (8 p.m. ET/5 PT).
