NEW YORK | Dick Cheney biopic ‘Vice’ tops Golden Globes nominations
NEW YORK— Adam McKay’s Dick Cheney biopic “Vice” swooped in to lead nominations for the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards, narrowly edging Bradley Cooper’s tear-jerking revival “A Star Is Born,” the interracial road-trip drama “Green Book” and the period romp “The Favourite.”
“Vice” topped all contenders Thursday with a surprising six nominations, including best picture, comedy. “A Star Is Born,” ”Green Book” and “The Favourite” trailed close behind with five nominations each.
While the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, a collection of 88 mostly lesser-known freelance film journalists, is known for its quirkier selections and categorizations (“Get Out” last year slotted in as a comedy), few saw the resounding success of “Vice” coming.
