This is the fifth year that the Golden Globes has awarded a “Best Animated Feature Film” award, and this year the honour went to Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin. Three out of five of the 2006-2011 winners also went on to take home the Academy Award as well including Ratatouille (2007), WALL-E (2008), Up (2009), and Toy Story 3 (2010). (In 2006, Happy Feet beat out Golden Globe winner Cars, for the Oscar.)
With just over a month to go till the Oscars, will The Adventures of Tintin continue the trend and take home the golden man? Looking at Steven Spielberg’s track record, we’re thinking probably yes, but the Oscars are known to mix things up ever year, and predictions have been saying that this year will be no different, so we’ll have to wait and see!
Short history of the Golden Globe “Best Animated Feature Film: (via Wikipedia) On November 17, 2009, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced that at the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards, there will be five nominees for Best Animated Feature Film, as its members voted to amend its rules: eligible films must be feature-length (70 minutes or longer) with no more than 25% live action. If less than eight animated films qualify, the award will not be given, in which case the films would be eligible for Best Picture. If less than twelve animated films qualify, the category will be limited to three nominations per year.
