Vice tops Globe list

Geelong Advertiser - - WORLD -

MOVIES about race, pol­i­tics and mu­sic dom­i­nated yesterday’s nom­i­na­tions for next month’s Golden Globe awards.

Dark com­edy Vice, a scathing look at the ca­reer of for­mer US Vice-Pres­i­dent Dick Cheney scored six nom­i­na­tions.

It was fol­lowed by the Lady Gaga re­make of A Star is Born, Bri­tish his­tor­i­cal com­edy The Favourite and 1960s seg­re­gated Amer­ica road trip movie Green Book with five nods each.

Aus­tralian hopes were led by Ni­cole Kid­man’s best ac­tress in a drama nod for De­stroyer, while fel­low Aussie Yvonne Stra­hovski was nom­i­nated for a sup­port­ing ac­tress Globe for the TV drama se­ries The Hand­maid’s Tale.

Vice di­rec­tor Adam McKay, who was also nom­i­nated, de­scribed his film as “an amaz­ing por­trayal of power”.

The best mo­tion pic­ture — drama nom­i­nees were A Star is Born, Bohemian Rhapsody, If Beale Street Could Talk, BlacKkKlans­man and Black Pan­ther.
