The Irishman, Martin Scorsese’s three-and-a-half-hour gangster epic, and  Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,  Quentin Tarantino’s nostalgic love letter to the 1960s Tinseltown, were hot on its heels with five each.

The nominations traditionally see the stars and movies destined for awards success start to break away from the competition—the Globes are seen as a key bellwether for February’s Academy Awards.

Marriage Story earned nominations for its stars Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver, and for its screenplay, but director  Noah Baumbach missed out.

Scorsese was nominated for best director for  Irishman  but there was no best actor nod for his leading man  Robert De Niro. Instead,  Al Pacino and  Joe Pesci were both selected for supporting roles.

Netflix’s Vatican drama  The Two Popes also performed well, while dark comic book tale Joker received recognition in best drama, best actor and best director.

The 77th Golden Globes, which also honor television, will take place in Beverly Hills on Jan. 5, two days before voting for Oscars nominees ends.

Monday’s nominations were announced at an early-morning Beverly Hills ceremony by actor  Tim Allen  (Toy Story) and actresses  Dakota Fanning  (I Am Sam) and Susan Kelechi Watson  (This Is Us).

The gala will be hosted by British comedian Ricky Gervais.
