NEW YORK — Adam McKay’s Dick Cheney biopic “Vice” seized con­trol of the 76th Golden Globe Awards with a lead­ing six nom­i­na­tions, nar­rowly edg­ing out 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 in nom­i­na­tions an­nounced at the Bev­erly Hilton Ho­tel in Bev­erly Hills, in­clud­ing best pic­ture, com­edy and best ac­tor nom­i­na­tions for Chris­tian Bale’s per­for­mance as the for­mer vice pres­i­dent. It also earned nom­i­na­tions for Amy Adams’ sup­port­ing role as Lynne Cheney, Sam Rock­well’s Ge­orge W. Bush and both the screen­play and di­rec­tion by McKay.

For even the of­ten-quirky se­lec­tions of the Hol­ly­wood For­eign Press As­so­ci­a­tion, the strong sup­port for “Vice” (which ar­rives in the­aters Dec. 25) was a sur­prise. But it was far from a ru­n­away win, as the press as­so­ci­a­tion typ­i­cally spreads its awards around. Os­car front-run­ners “A Star Is Born,” “Green Book” and “The Favourite” trailed close be­hind with five nom­i­na­tions each. No women were nomi-

nated for best direc­tor.
