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:
Hotel Transylvania
Rise of the Guardians
Wreck-It Ralph

I’ll be honest – I’m very behind on my animated films this year. I’ll soon be catching up with all the contenders, a good number of which are on DVD, but for now, I’ll take a shot at what looks to be this year’s slate. A handful of sequels, like Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, Despicable Me 2, and The Smurfs 2, as well as Free Birds, might contend and knock some of the below predicted nominees off the list. Offer your thoughts in the comments if you’ve seen some of these films.

Current predictions:
Monsters University
