Biggest Golden Globe winners, snubs

The 76th Golden Globe Awards will see Nicole Kidman compete with Lady Gaga, Melissa McCarthy, Glenn Close and Rosamund Pike for the Best Actress award.

Nominations for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's annual ceremony, which honours achievement in film and television, were announced overnight, with the Aussie actress earning a nod for her performance in Destroyer. Unfortunately, Kidman missed out on a double nomination for her role in Boy Erased, as did co-star and fellow Aussie Joel Edgerton, who also directed the coming-of-age film.

Political comedy Vice took home the lion's share with a whopping six nominations, narrowly edging historical comedy The Favourite, road trip movie Green Book and Bradley Cooper's A Star Is Born, all with five nominations each.

Vice, Adam McKay's scathing biopic about George W. Bush selecting Dick Cheney to be his running mate in 2000, won't make its way to Australian cinemas until Boxing Day, but it has quickly become the talk of Hollywood as the surprise Globe leader.

The comedy-drama collected Best Picture, a Best Actor nomination for Christian Bale's nearly unrecognisable performance as the former US vice president, a Best Supporting Actress nomination for Amy Adams' role as Lynne Cheney, Best Director and Best Screenplay nods for McKay, and a Best Supporting Actor nod for Sam Rockwell. (Adams scored a coveted Golden Globes hat trick, nominated for her work in HBO's Sharp Objects, of which she's also a producer so is nominated in the Best Limited Series category).

Unsurprisingly, A Star Is Born picked up a Best Actress nomination for Gaga's career-defining performance as struggling artist Ally, as well as a Best Director and Best Actor nomination for Cooper.

Black Panther, If Beale Street Could Talk and Mary Poppins Returns all earned multiple nominations.

Damien Chazelle's Neil Armstrong biopic First Man, which has seen its awards hope wane in recent weeks, failed to launch, scoring neither a Best Film nod, nor one for Ryan Gosling's leading performance. It did, however, land nominations for Claire Foy and its score.

Also noticeably left out was Ethan Hawke's performance as an anguished pastor in First Reformed.

Oscar hopefuls The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, Ben Is Back, First Reformed, The Hate U Give, Hereditary, On the Basis of Sex, Private Life, The Rider and Widows all went unnoticed. Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan's much anticipated Mary Queen of Scots also missed out.

In the television categories, limited series The Assassination of Gianni Versace picked up four nominations. Barry, The Kominsky Method and Homecoming scored three nominations, as did Sharp Objects, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and A Very English Scandal.

This Is Us, starring Mandy Moore, Chrissy Metz and Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimigilia, missed out on any Golden Globe love.

American Horror Story, Black-ish, Better Call Saul, Orange Is the New Black, Silicon Valley and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt were all shut-out.

House of Cards also failed to earn any nominations for its final season, which hit Netflix last month, sans Kevin Spacey.

Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale was also ignored for Best TV Series, however Elisabeth Moss and Australian actress Yvonne Strahovski picked up nominations for their stellar performances.
