About The 75th Golden Globes
Nominations for the 75th Golden Globe Awards were announced this morning. The Golden Globes honors the best in film and television. The award ceremony will be broadcasted on January 7, 2018. Seth Myers will be the host. The 75th Golden Globes Best Animated Film Nominees is interesting to see this year. Coco, I’m sure will win the category because of Pixar and Disney but I was very happy to see, The Breadwinner and Loving Vincent. The Breadwinner has been getting a lot of positive reviews from TIFF and the Annie Awards where it received the second highest nominations next to Coco. I was shocked to see Ferdinand make the list. I have yet to see the film but have heard mixed reviews. I wanted to see Window Horses make this list.The animation is beautifully drawn with an intriguing and heartwarming story. Loving Vincent was an absolute no-brainer to make this list. The animation and work that went into creating this film is astounding. For animation, Loving Vincent certainly deserves the award but storyline, Coco will probably take home the Golden Globe. I was also shocked to see films such as, In this Corner of the World, not make the list as well. I’ve noticed that the Golden Globe Awards has a habit of snubbing films that aren’t either well known or backed by a large studio. I’m hoping both movies make top five for best animation. What are your thoughts and comments?
