Netflix's 'Mank' tops Golden Globes nominations with six

Netflix's "Mank," a black-and-white drama set in Hollywood's Golden Age about the making of "Citizen Kane," topped the Golden Globe nominations Wednesday.

Golden Globes

"Mank" earned six nods, including best drama, followed by fellow Netflix movie "The Trial of the Chicago 7" on five -- an announcement that offered an important, early glimpse into the movies leading this year's unique and much-delayed awards season.

The unveiling of the nominations was remotely co-hosted by "Sex and the City" star Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P Henson, whittling down the list of films and stars headed for the Globes ceremony later this month -- itself seen as a bellwether for the Oscars in April.
