Christian Bale also received a best actor nomination for his starring role in the movie about the now-77-year-old former vice president. Amy Adams and Sam Rockwell, who play Lynne Cheney and former President George W. Bush in the film, were nominated in the best supporting actress and actor categories.

“Vice” opens in theaters on Christmas Day.

The Cheney-focused flick wasn’t the only project with political ties to be recognized by the Golden Globes.

Sacha Baron Cohen, who went incognito to trick several high-profile political figures for his controversial Showtime series “Who is America?” was nominated in the best actor in a TV musical or comedy series category. Among those who admitted getting duped by the comedian: 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Cheney.

The 2019 Golden Globes ceremony airs on NBC on Jan. 6.
