“Vice” director Adam McKay is a fan of many of the films among this year’s Golden Globes nominees, but he has embraced Dick Cheney’s ruthlessly competitive spirit when it came to a movie that his is up against: “Mary Poppins Returns.” “We’re coming for it. We’re gonna take it down. Cheney is going to take Poppins down. That’s a promise. I’ll fight dirty. I’ll get in the press. I’ll spread rumors. Usually, with awards, it’s, ‘Hey, it’s good for everyone! It’s all art!’ Not in this case,” McKay jokingly told TheWrap. “We ain’t no musical. We ain’t singing no songs. We’re just taking care of business.” McKay was enjoying a chicken sandwich in London when the nominees were announced. McKay’s Cheney biopic scored six nominations to lead the field, including in Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, and two for McKay for Best Director and Best Screenplay. Kieran Culkin, who stars on the HBO show “Succession,” which McKay produces, scored a nomination as well.

This is getting really good,” McKay recalled as he watched the nominations live. “I was especially excited to see them honor the actors so much because I agree with them. I think they did special, mind-blowing work in this.” “Vice,” McKay’s follow-up to “The Big Short,” is a political drama that chronicles Cheney’s time as vice president of the United States and the behind-the-scenes power that he exerted over the White House and the country. “We all knew he had done some of that, of course, that’s no surprise. But when we started seeing the detail, I started thinking, wait a minute, this guy is a figure we know about, but it goes much deeper than we think,” McKay said. “There was not a clean sense of history or story about how we got where we’re at right now, or forget America, but about how the world got to where it’s at right now.” McKay’s “Vice” starring Christian Bale as Dick Cheney, along with Amy Adams, Steve Carell and Sam Rockwell. It opens in theaters on Dec. 25.
