This year's Golden Globe nominations have been announced, and two movies made by New Zealanders are up for awards.

The Two Popes, written by New Zealand born filmmaker Anthony McCarten picked up four nominations, including nods for best motion picture - drama and McCarten is nominated for best screenplay. Cast members Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce are nominated for Best Supporting Actor and Best Actor in a motion picture - drama.

Taika Waititi's comedy Jojo Rabbit, about a young boy in Hitler Youth snapped up two nominations. It's up for the award for best motion picture - musical or comedy, and Roman Griffin Davis who plays Jojo picked up a nomination for best performance by an actor in a musical or comedy. Waititi missed out on a nomination for best director.

Noah Baumbach's Marriage Story starring Adam Driver and Scarlett Johannson is leading the race with six nominations, with Martin Scorcese's The Irishman hot on the heels with five nominations. Both movies were released on Netflix.

The television race is tight, reports The Washington Post. The Crown, Unbelievable and Chernobyl received four nominations each.

Elsewhere, notable snubs are Greta Gerwig's Little Women, with just Saoirse Ronan nominated for her performance as best actress. Game of Thrones, The Handmaid's Tale, and Ava Duvernay's When They See Us were all shut out of the awards.
