BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) "Vice" director Adam McKay says he's only competitive with one movie in the best comedy or musical film category: "Mary Poppins Returns."
Speaking from London about his film's leading six Golden Globe nominations Thursday, McKay deadpanned that "we will take 'Mary Poppins' out." He added: "Dick Cheney is going for her."
McKay's film about the former vice president also got nominations for stars Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Sam Rockwell, as well as for his directing and screenplay.
He said he hasn't even considered what President Donald Trump might think of the film.
He said, "I'm going to bet dollars to doughnuts he never even watches it."
"Vice" hits North American theaters on Dec. 25.
Thursday morning's choices featured several shocking exclusions.
Supporting actor favorite Sam Elliott failed to get a nomination for "A Star Is Born."
Foreign language favorite "Cold War" was left out as well.
On the television side, there was little love for "Atlanta" or "The Handmaid's Tale," both of which only got acting nominations.
And NBC's "This Is Us" was shut out entirely.
