Golden Globe Musings: Best Animated 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:
Kubo and the Two Strings
My Life as a Zucchini

Last year, I had seen just one of the contenders in this category at this point, and now I’ve seen two: The Breadwinner and Loving Vincent. Aside from those two, I assume that Pixar’s Coco is probably the most popular choice. From what I’ve read, both Ferdinand and The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales are expected to be received positively. Despicable Me 3, Cars 3, and The Lego Batman Movie seem like films that will do well with Globe voters even if Oscar nominations aren’t in their futures.

Current predictions:
The Breadwinner
Despicable Me 3
The Lego Batman Movie
Loving Vincent
