Nominations for the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards were announced on Thursday morning, and two of the year's biggest moments in music got a share of the spotlight.

A Star Is Born landed three nominations for Best Motion Picture, Best Actress, and Best Actor. The love story of a struggling artist named Ally played by Lady Gaga, and a seasoned but troubled musician named Jackson Maine played by Bradley Cooper grossed nearly 300 million dollars at the box office, and received critical acclaim across the board. The film is unique as a breakout moment for Gaga as an actor, but also an impressive display of Cooper as a singer. The soundtrack to the film stayed in the number one spot on the Billboard chart for several weeks.

The other big music movie of the year, Bohemian Rhapsody, also received nominations on Thursday. The film about the formation and rise of Queen, chronicling the personal life of iconic frontman Freddie Mercury, collected two nominations. The movie is nominated for Best Motion Picture, and Rami Malek is nominated for his portrayal of Mercury. Rhapsody is now the most successful music biopic of all time.
