This year’s Golden Globe nominations are as polarizing as they typically are, with Vice, the Dick Cheney biopic starring a transformed Christian Bale leading the pack with six nominations.

Its followed closely by frontrunners A Star is Born, The Favourite and Green Book, all of which picked up five nominations each.
