The award show will likely turn political so it is only fitting to have a political movie lead the way in nominations.
Dick Cheney biopic "Vice" led nominations for the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards, narrowly edging Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's tear-jerking revival of "A Star Is Born," the interracial road-trip drama "Green Book" and period romp "The Favourite."
"Vice" topped all contenders Thursday with a surprising six nominations, including best picture and comedy. "A Star Is Born," ''Green Book" and "The Favourite" scored five nominations each.
"Vice" stars Christian Bale as the former vice president. The film is a highly critical portrait of the former VP Cheney as a power-hungry, behind-the-scenes tyrant. It arrives in theaters Dec. 25.
The nominations were announced at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Thursday.
