"Hacksaw Ridge" director Mel Gibson has earned three Golden Globe nominations.

As Variety reports, “Hacksaw Ridge” is nominated for best director, best drama and best actor for Andrew Garfield.

“Hacksaw Ridge” tells the story of Desmond T. Doss, the only conscientious objector to ever be awarded a Congressional Medal of Honor for heroism. Doss was a Seventh-day Adventist who became a medic, saving multiple lives - including 75 during the Battle of Okinawa - while not carrying a weapon. He is portrayed in the film by Andrew Garfield.

Gibson won the Golden Globe for best director in 1995 for “Braveheart,” then went on that year to win the Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Director.

The Golden Globes are awarded annually by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. This year's ceremony will take place January 8 in Los Angeles.
