Golden Globes Name Best Animated Feature Nominations.
There's few surprises, with Big Hero 6, The Lego Movie, Boxtrolls and How To Train Your Dragon 2 getting their expected places. The final place goes to The Book Of Life, which is perhaps the only slightly unexpected choice. Cartoon Saloon's Song Of the Sea and Studio Ghibli's The Tale of The Princess Kaguya are seen as serious contenders in most places, but at the Globes they've been completely shut out. From our point of view, it's certainly a shame not to see 2D animation represented in the group at all.
With that said, Jorge Gutierrez's movie (despite it's distinctive Latino feel) is probably the most commercial of the three- so perhaps it's not such a big surprise after all. The 72nd annual Golden Globes ceremony will take place on January 11th 2015.
