'The Golden Globe nominations are the starting gun in the race for the Oscars' - By: AFP VALERIE MACON

"Vice," a biopic about Dick Cheney starring Christian Bale as the former US vice president, on Thursday picked up the most Golden Globe nominations with six including best comedy film, as the race to the Oscars begins.

The announcements, which came a week before the influential Screen Actors Guild nominations, are the first major bellwether of momentum going into the Academy Awards, which take place in February.

"Vice" bucked some predictions, earning one more nomination than popular music romance reboot "A Star Is Born," but both are now well placed for awards glory.

Tied with "Star" at five nominations were bawdy royal tale "The Favourite" and offbeat race comedy "Green Book."

Right behind them were Spike Lee's "BlackkKlansman," the true story of a black police officer who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan with the help of a white partner, and hotly-awaited Disney sequel "Mary Poppins Returns."

The Golden Globes will be handed out on January 6 in Beverly Hills.
