Golden Globe Musings: Best Animated Feature Film

Golden Globe nominations for this year will be announced in just a few weeks, so here’s a survey of the contenders and the most likely predictions at this time. Weigh in with your thoughts, and let me know if I’ve left off anything important. A reminder that the Globes are wildly unpredictable and that it is still a bit early to gauge the reception or awards potential of a number of the so-called “contenders” at this point.

Last year’s nominees:
The Adventures of Tintin
Arthur Christmas
Cars 2
Puss in Boots

It’s important to distinguish this field from the corresponding Oscar race. Pixar has won this award five out of six times, and, unlike the Oscars, even “Cars 2” was nominated. That makes Brave a sure thing. Frankenweenie and Wreck-It Ralph are both good bets, and ParaNorman, Rise of the Guardians, and The Lorax could easily place too.

Current predictions:
The Lorax
Wreck-It Ralph
