CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - Filmed entirely in New Mexico, “Hell or High Water” has earned three Golden Globe nods, including best film drama.

The nominees were announced Monday in Beverly Hills, California. Aside from “Hell or High Water,” those vying for best drama include “Hacksaw Ridge,” ”Lion,” ”Manchester by the Sea” and “Moonlight.”

The awards ceremony will be Jan. 8.

New Mexico stood in as West Texas for the backdrop to David Mackenzie’s heist thriller starring Jeff Bridges. Bank robbery scenes were filmed in Clovis and Portales, and Quay County’s caprock escarpment also makes an appearance along with spots in Moriarty and Tucumcari.

According to the state film office, production began back in May 2015. The project employed more than 100 New Mexico crew members and more than 850 background talent workers.
