BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — The Latest on the announcement of nominations for the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California (all times local):

8:10 a.m.

Real life was better than a dream for 15-year-old Elsie Fisher.

She said "absolutely not" when asked Thursday morning if she expected her Golden Globe nomination for best actress in a musical or comedy for her role in "Eighth Grade."

Fisher says that during the night she "had a dream they were announced and I wasn't even nominated."

She says she then "randomly" woke up just at the moment her nomination was announced on the Golden Globes live stream, and "It was incredible."

Told she was trending on Twitter for her one-word reaction to the nomination that just said "WHAT," Fisher replied, in a mock-triumphant voice, "Hell yeah!"

8 a.m.

There's no such thing as a sure thing when it comes to the mercurial Hollywood Foreign Press Association and its Golden Globe nominations, but Thursday morning's choices featured several shocking exclusions.

Supporting actor favorite Sam Elliott failed to get a nomination for "A Star Is Born." Foreign language favorite "Cold War" was left out as well. And many were surprised that Adam McKay's yet-to-be-released Dick Cheney film "Vice" walked off with the most film nominations.

On the television side, there was little love for "Atlanta" or "The Handmaid's Tale," both of which only got acting nominations. And NBC's "This Is Us" was shut out entirely.

7:40 a.m.

Golden Globe nominees are usually groggy when they get word of the honor early in the morning.

But Glenn Close was groggier than most when she learned she'd been nominated for best actress in a film drama for "The Wife."

Close had done two performances of the play "Mother of the Maid" in New York that taxed her well into the night and made it tough to talk.

She told The Associated Press in a phone interview: "My voice is gone."

Close has won nearly every award and actress can get, but says being nominated "never gets old." She says part of the joy is because of what part is being recognized, and said her role "The Wife" is the kind that "doesn't come around very often."

In "The Wife" she plays the spouse of a Nobel Prize winner, and the film opens with just the same kind of too-early phone call that Close was awoken with Thursday morning.

She said she might celebrate with tequila, but then remembered she has another show Thursday night, and said "I'll probably have to go back to sleep at some point."

7:25 a.m.

The Golden Globe Awards has created a new lifetime achievement honor to recognize top names in the television industry.

Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Meher Tatna announced the award Thursday morning before nominees for the 76th annual Golden Globes were revealed at the Beverly Hilton. She says the award will be equivalent to the Cecil B. DeMille Award, an accolade for film.

Tatna says the new annual award will "honor TV's biggest names and brightest talents" and was created to reflect what she called a new "golden age of television." She says honorees will be selected based on their accomplishments and influence on the industry.

No details on who the award would be named after, or who its inaugural recipient will be, were released Thursday. Tatna says the recipient will be revealed in the coming days.

The HFPA has not yet announced its recipient of the DeMille award. Last year the honor went to Oprah Winfrey, who delivered a rousing speech that was a highlight of Hollywood's awards season.

6:05 a.m.

Adam McKay's Dick Cheney biopic "Vice" has swooped in to lead nominations for the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards with six nods.

The film narrowly edged Bradley Cooper's tear-jerking revival "A Star Is Born," the interracial road-trip drama "Green Book" and the period romp "The Favourite."

Few saw the resounding success of "Vice" coming. The Annapurna Pictures release, starring Christian Bale as the former vice president, is a highly critical portrait of the former vice president. It was nominated in the Globes' best comedy or musical film category.

The show splits best film honorees into drama and comedy or musical categories.

Lady Gaga and Cooper both received acting nominations for "A Star is Born," as did "Green Book's" Viggo Mortensen.
