Musical romance "La La Land" received maximum Folden Globe nominations on Monday, while independent film 'Moonlight' received six nods.

"La La Land" scored nominations for Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling in the lead comedy/musical acting categories, while writer-director Damien Chazelle received nods for best director and best screenplay.

"Moonlight," the coming-of-age tale of an impoverished black boy struggling with his sexuality, scored nominations for Barry Jenkins in the directing and screenplay categories, while actors Naomie Harris and Mahershala Ali were nominated in the best supporting acting races.

"La La Land" is up against "20th Century Women," the story of a free-spirited mother; raunchy superhero action "Deadpool"; singing comedy "Florence Foster Jenkins"; and teen tale "Sing Street" for best comedy/musical film.

"Moonlight" will face war drama "Hacksaw Ridge," western crime story "Hell or High Water," adoption tale "Lion" and "Manchester by the Sea," which is about a working-class family dealing with tragedy, in the best drama film category.
