“The Banshees of Inisherin,” an Irish film about the deterioration of a longtime friendship, snared a leading eight nominations Monday for the 80th annual Golden Globe Awards.

The film, starring Colin Farrell, was nominated for best comedy/musical motion picture, along with “Babylon,” “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” and “Triangle of Sadness.”

For best drama film, nominations went to “Maverick: Top Gun,” “Elvis,” “Avatar” The Way of Water,” “The Fabelmans,” and “Tár.”

“Everything Everywhere All at Once” received six nominations, while “Babylon” and “The Fabelmans” each received five.

Farrell was among the nominees for best actor in a musical/comedy film, as were Diego Calva of “Babylon,” Daniel Craig for “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery,” Adam Driver for “White Noise” and Ralph Fiennes for “The Menu.”

Nominated for best actress in a musical/comedy were Lesley Manville for “Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris,” Margot Robbie for “Babylon,” Anya Taylor-Joy for “The Menu,” Emma Thompson for “Good Luck to You, Leo Grande” and Michelle Yeoh for “Everything Everywhere All at Once.”

Brendan Fraser, who has earned widespread raves for her performance in “The Whale,” was nominated for best actor in a drama film, as were Austin Butler for “Elvis,” Hugh Jackman for “The Son,” Bill Nighy for “Living” and Jeremy Pope for “The Inspection.”

Drama actress nominations went to Cate Blanchett for “Tár,” Olivia Colman for “Empire of Light,” Viola Davis for “The Woman King,” Ana de Armas for “Blonde” and Michelle Williams for “The Fabelmans.”

Competing for best director will be James Cameron for “Avatar: The Way of Water,” Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert for “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” Baz Luhrmann for “Elvis,” Martin McDonagh for “The Banshees of Inisherin” and Steven Spielberg for “The Fabelmans.”

The Globes recognize both film and television. On the small screen, nominations for best musical or comedy series went to “Abbott Elementary” (ABC), “The Bear” (FX), “Hacks” (HBO Max), “Only Murders in the Building” (Hulu) and “Wednesday” (Netflix).

Nominated for best drama series were “Better Call Saul” (AMC), “The Crown” (Netflix), “House of the Dragon” (HBO), “Ozark” (Netflix) and “Severance”(Apple TV+).

For best limited series, anthology series or TV movie, nominations went to “Black Bird” (Apple TV+), “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” (Netflix), “The Dropout” (Hulu), “Pam & Tommy” (Hulu) and “The White Lotus” (HBO).

The nominations announcement by Selenis Leyva and Mayan Lopez from NBC’s “Lopez vs. Lopez” — George Lopez had to cancel after announcing he tested positive for COVID-19 — marked the next step by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s effort to recover from the 2021 uproar unleashed by revelations of the organizations long-term lack of diversity and questions about its ethical standards. After being bounced off television this year due to the upheaval, the Globes will return to their traditional home at the Beverly Hilton and will be broadcast by NBC.

It remained unclear whether Hollywood’s elite will re-embrace the awards, after many performers and studios publicly distanced themselves from the HFPA after learning of the organization’s diversity lapses.

The 80th Golden Globes are scheduled for Jan. 10, with comedian Jerrod Carmichael hosting.

The Golden Globe nominations and winners are chosen by voting members of the HFPA, a group that has roughly doubled in size thanks to the group’s effort to expand its membership and diversity.

According to the HFPA, the nominees were chosen by 96 members and 103 international voters who were “recruited from international industry organizations , well-known foreign film festivals and journalism professionals.”

The organization stated that voters represent 62 countries, and the voting body is now 52% female and 51.5% racially and ethnically diverse — with 19.5% Latinx, 12% Asian, 10% Black and 10% Middle Eastern.

Over the past year, the HFPA has overhauled its leadership, bylaws and membership, adding more than 100 new voters to its ranks — more than doubling the organization’s previous size.

Last year’s awards were presented in a small-scale event with no live stream or telecast.

But association officials are hoping they’ve turned a page and restored luster to the Globes — traditionally the kickoff event of the Hollywood awards season — following the HFPA’s sweeping reorganization.
