The industry's biggest attractions, however, have faced ingrained skepticism from Oscar voters, which explains the "popular film" trial balloon, which many saw as an act of desperation and pandering meant to mollify ABC, the network that televises the awards, after a sizable dip in last year's ratings.

The Annapurna Pictures release, starring Christian Bale (also nominated) as the former VP, is a critical portrait of Cheney that portrays him as a power-hungry, behind-the-scenes tyrant. The studio behind it, A24, had a hard year in general with the Globes, securing only one nomination for Elsie Fisher's breakout performance in the coming-of-age movie "Eighth Grade". Those include "A Star Is Born", "Ralph Breaks the Internet", "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Boy Erased", "First Man", "Green Book", "The Old Man & the Gun", "Shoplifted", "A Private War" and "Can You Ever Forgive Me?".
