It looks like the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is as impressed by gay themed coming of age drama, Moonlight as we are… The feature has picked up six nominations at the Golden Globes’ announcements last night.

The movie is in the running to score gongs for best picture, best director, best screenplay, best original score, best supporting actor for Mahershala Ali and best supporting actress for Naomie Harris. The film focuses on the life of a black gay man in Miami and spans several decades.

Other queer-centric productions received critical attention with BBC gay spy drama London Spy also receiving a nomination for actress Charlotte Rampling.
