Vice, A Star is Born and Green Book among the big nominees for the 76th Golden Globes

BEVERLY HILLS – Adam McKay’s Dick Cheney biopic “Vice” has swooped in to lead nominations for the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards with six nods.

The film narrowly edged Bradley Cooper’s tear-jerking revival “A Star Is Born,” the interracial road-trip drama “Green Book” and the period romp “The Favourite.”

Few saw the resounding success of “Vice” coming. The Annapurna Pictures release, starring Christian Bale as Dick Cheney, is a highly critical portrait of the former vice-president. It was nominated in the Globes’ best comedy or musical film category.

Lady Gaga and Cooper both received acting nominations for “A Star is Born,” as did “Green Book’s” Viggo Mortensen.
