Elsewhere, the likes of Roma, A Star is Born, and Bohemian Rhapsody all scored seven noms, as did the often overlooked First Man, which was included in the categories of Best Supporting Actress for Claire Foy and Original Screenplay among others.

Also successful was BlacKkKlansman, scooping nominations in the major categories including Spike Lee for Best Director. Big Golden-Globe winner Green Book made it into the nominees for Best Film, Best Supporting Actor and Original Screenplay.
