The organization will announce their annual awards on Sunday, Dec. 20.

Best Film nominees also included Pixar’s animated feature “Inside Out,” which received five nominations, and “Spotlight,” the Boston pedophile priest expose, and “Room,” the harrowing mother and son drama, which both garnered four each.

Other multiple nominees included the 1952 love story between a socialite and shopgirl “Carol,” with six; the western “The Hateful Eight,” four; and “Brooklyn,” “Creed,” “The Danish Girl” and “Ex Machina,” three.
