Black Panther is also up for Best Original Score for composer Ludwig Göransson and Best Original Song for Kendrick Lamar and SZA collaboration “All the Stars.”
Adam McKay’s Dick Cheney biopic and Christian Bale-starrer Vice leads the comedy or musical categories at six nominations, just ahead of the five earned by the Emma Stone-led The Favourite and Green Book, the period dramedy headlined by Luke Cage and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse star Mahershala Ali.
The Bradley Cooper-directed A Star Is Born and Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman lead in the drama categories, each earning five nominations, including Best Performance by an Actor and Best Director for Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers star Cooper.
Vice, also starring Justice League’s Amy Adams and Iron Man 2’s Sam Rockwell, has scored nominations for Best Picture - Comedy or Musical and a nod for Bale in the Best Performance by an Actor category, as well as Supporting Role nominations for Adams and Rockwell. McKay, who served as co-writer on Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man, earned a nod for Best Director and Best Screenplay for his work on the political dramedy.
Aquaman stars Willem Dafoe and Nicole Kidman are both nominated in the Actor and Actress Drama categories for Best Performance — for their work in At Eternity’s Gate and Destroyer, respectively — while Captain America: The Winter Soldier star Robert Redford is nominated for his work in The Old Man & the Gun in the Musical or Comedy category.6comments
