The history behind the Golden Globes category for Best Animated Feature Film began back in 2007 with Pixar Animation Studios claiming the coveted award each nominated year – with the exception of 2012 awards when The Adventures of Tintin won over Cars 2.
At the 2014 Golden Globes, Pixar’s Monsters University was the studio’s first film that had been omitted from the Best Animated Feature Film category with the three nominations being The Croods, Frozen, and Despicable Me 2. The studio’s release of two feature films this year is creating an already exciting award season, be sure to share your thoughts with other Pixar fans in the Pixar Post Forum.
The 73rd Golden Globe Awards airing live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 10, 2016, at 8 p.m. EST on NBC. Be sure to stay tuned as the nominations for the 88th Academy Awards will be announced on January 14.
