The po­lit­i­cal film “Vice” made a big move in the race to the Os­cars Thurs­day morn­ing, pick­ing up six Golden Globe Award nom­i­na­tions.

Adam McKay’s Dick Cheney biopic snagged nom­i­na­tions for best com­edy or mu­si­cal, best ac­tor for Chris­tian Bale as the for­mer vice pres­i­dent, best ac­tress for Amy Adams as wife Lynne Cheney, and sup­port­ing ac­tor for Sam Rock­well as Pres­i­dent Ge­orge W. Bush.

Os­car con­tender “A Star Is Born” – which earned five nom­i­na­tions to­tal – was rec­og­nized in the drama cat­e­gory, along with “If Beale Street Could Talk,” “BlacKkKlans­man,” “Black Pan­ther” and “Bo­hemian Rhap­sody.” “The Favourite” and “Green Book” also got five nods each and vie for best com­edy or mu­si­cal with “Mary Pop­pins Re­turns,” “Crazy Rich Asians” and “Vice.”

FX minis­eries “The As­sas­si­na­tion of Gianni Ver­sace: Amer­i­can Crime Story” led all TV nom­i­nees with four hon­ors, in­clud­ing best lim­ited series.

In the other ma­jor film cat­e­gories, Lady Gaga (“A Star Is Born”) faces off for best dra­matic ac­tress against Glenn Close (“The Wife”), Melissa McCarthy (“Can You Ever For­give Me?”), Ni­cole Kid­man (“De­stroyer”) and Rosamund Pike (“A Pri­vate War”). Gaga also was named in the orig­i­nal­song cat­e­gory for “Shal­low,” the catchy tune she co-wrote for “A Star Is Born.”

In the field for best dra­matic ac­tor, Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born”) takes on Rami Malek (“Bo­hemian Rhap­sody”), Lu­cas Hedges (“Boy Erased”), John David Wash­ing­ton (“BlacKkKlans­man”) and Willem Dafoe (“At Eter­nity’s Gate”). Cooper, a first-time di­rec­tor for “A Star Is Born,” picked up a best-di­rec­tor nom­i­na­tion as well.

“The Favourite” star Olivia Col­man, who plays Queen Anne, is a fa­vorite for lead ac­tress in a com­edy/mu­si­cal, join­ing Emily Blunt (“Mary Pop­pins Re­turns”), Elsie Fisher (“Eighth Grade”), Char­l­ize Theron (“Tully”) and Con­stance Wu (“Crazy Rich Asians”).

Up for lead ac­tor in a com­edy or mu­si­cal along with Bale are Lin-Manuel Mi­randa (“Mary Pop­pins Re­turns”), Viggo Mortensen (“Green Book”), Robert Red­ford (“The Old Man & the Gun”) and John C. Reilly (“Stan & Ol­lie”).

Adams, who also nabbed a TV drama ac­tress nom­i­na­tion for HBO’s “Sharp Ob­jects,” is up for best sup­port­ing ac­tress in a cat­e­gory that also in­cludes Claire Foy (“First Man”), Regina King (“If Beale Street Could Talk”) and “The Favourite” co-stars Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz.

Sup­port­ing-ac­tor nom­i­na­tions

went to Rock­well – who won the cat­e­gory for last year’s “Three Bill­boards Out­side Eb­bing, Mis­souri” – as well as Ma­her­shala Ali (“Green Book”), Ti­mothee Cha­la­met (“Beau­ti­ful Boy”), Adam Driver (“BlacKkKlans­man”) and Richard E. Grant (“Can You Ever For­give Me?”).

The an­i­mated-movie cat­e­gory was very heroic, with “In­cred­i­bles 2” and “Spi­der-Man: Into the Spi­der-Verse” join­ing “Mi­rai,” “Ralph Breaks the In­ter­net” and “Isle of Dogs,” which also snagged a nom­i­na­tion for orig­i­nal score.

McKay was a dou­ble nom­i­nee for “Vice.” He’s in the best-di­rec­tor cat­e­gory along with Cooper, Al­fonso Cuaron (“Roma”), Pe­ter Far­relly (“Green Book”) and Spike Lee (“BlacKkKlans­man”). And McKay’s “Vice” script is up for best screen­play along­side “If Beale Street Could Talk,” “Green Book,” “The Favourite” and “Roma.”

The 76th an­nual Golden Globes, hosted by Andy Sam­berg and San­dra Oh, air Jan. 6 on NBC (8 p.m. EST/ 5 PST).
