Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Animated Film

The competition:
Encanto and Raya and the Last Dragon both come from Walt Disney Animation Studios, which has ten previous nominations, and two wins, for “Frozen” and “Zootopia.” Luca comes from Pixar, which has amassed fourteen nominations and won nine times out of the fifteen years of this category’s existence, most recently last year for “Soul.” Flee and My Sunny Maad are both foreign productions. “Encanto” is the only film with any other nominations, for its score and song.

Additional notes: Disney has had two films in the running once before, when “Zootopia” beat “Moana” in 2016. “Encanto” co-director Byron Howard was previously nominated for “Bolt” and “Tangled,” and won for “Zootopia.” “Raya and the Last Dragon” co-director was previously nominated for “Big Hero 6.” 

What should win: This is a great list. My favorite is “Encanto.”
What will win: It’s possible “Flee” could win, but I think this goes to Encanto.
