Toy Story 4 gets a Golden Globe nomination + more!

Annie Awards, Golden Globes, Toy Story 4

Posted by Simoa • December 10, 2019

If you missed the announcement of the Golden Globe nominees, fear not! We did too, but we are here finally, to talk a little about the Globes and the other nominations Pixar has received. Toy Story 4 was of course, one of three animated sequels released in 2019; it has strong competition in How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World and Frozen 2. While the other nominees are grand in scale, Toy Story 4 was the much more intimate and simple movie, but still an event as the other two. And seeing how it dominated the box office, it was a huge deal for a little movie.

The Annie Awards also announced their 2019 nominees. Toy Story 4 is up for:

  • Best Feature
  • Best FX for Feature
  • Best Music – Feature for Randy Newman
  • Best Voice Acting for Tony Hale (go, Forky!)
  • Best Writing
  • Best Editorial

While I am a bit surprised and disappointed that the film didn’t earn any nominations for storyboard, character design/animation, or direction, it is still being recognized in multiple categories. I thought Pixar’s SparkShorts might also be contenders, but maybe they don’t qualify. If any of our readers have more information on that, do let us know.

Congratulations to Josh Cooley and the crew! You can read all about my visit to Pixar where I learned how Toy Story 4 was created here.

Incredibles 2 Nominated for Golden Globe Award

Posted by Joanna • December 6, 2018

The nominations for Incredibles 2 keep rolling in – just after receiving 11 nominations at the Annie Awards, it has now been nominated for Best Animated Motion Picture at the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

Incredibles 2 sits amongst fellow worthy nominees Isle of DogsMiraiRalph Breaks The Internet, and Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.

The Golden Globe awards will air on January 6th, so we’ve just got a month until we find out the result! Regardless of the outcome, it’s great to see Incredibles 2 receiving so much praise – we’re beyond happy for the entire crew.

Following the nomination announcements, director Brad Bird revealed that he was initially worried the sequel wouldn’t prove as popular as the original – he was afraid superheroes wouldn’t be ‘in’ any more. (Ironic, given the fact that the new animated Spider-Man movie has also been nominated for best animated feature.) But he realised that Incredibles is more than a superhero movie – family is at the core of these films, even during those classic fight scenes.

“I thought, two years from now — because it takes a while to make these things — are people going to be sick of superheroes? But then I remembered that what drew me to the idea and made the idea appealing to me in the first place was that it was primarily a film about families — and they just happened to be superheroes. And to me, family is an endlessly fascinating subject because it’s in everyone’s lives.”

Coco wins Best Animated Feature at the Golden Globes!

Coco won the top prize at last night’s 75th annual Golden Globes. The film scored two nominations: one for “Remember Me” in Best Original Song and Best Animated Feature. While we hoped the film would walk away with both awards last night, we are incredibly happy for its Best Animated win!

 

Watch the clip below of Lee Unkrich accepting the Globe, along with co-director Adrian Molina and producer Darla K. Anderson.

 

Coco has made such a tremendous impact, both in Mexico and around the world. This truly is an honor for everyone involved, particularly the Mexican and Latino artists, consultants, and the actors who lent their voice talent to the film.

You can also watch the backstage video, in which the three answered questions from reporters and discussed the film’s enormous success worldwide. They re-emphasized their commitment to telling a story free of cliches. They also addressed the current John Lasseter situation, explaining their hopes for creating a safer environment with integrity, and making Pixar a better place for people to create art.

As Adrian Molina said, Coco is an encouraging film, for himself and the rest of the crew who worked on it. By creating an environment that prioritizes and includes more diverse voices, Pixar is taking steps to become better, and hopefully this will lead to even more positive change.

Congratulations to Lee, Adrian, Darla, and the entire cast and crew for their Golden Globe win! Be sure to check back here for more awards show coverage.

The award nominations are still streaming in for Pixar’s latest movie Coco. It’s already dominating the Annies Awards with an impressive 13 nominations, and now it’s been nominated for two awards at the 2018 Golden Globes – ‘Best Animated Feature Film’ and ‘Best Original Song’ for ‘Remember Me’. See below for the full list of nominees in these categories:

We won’t have to wait long to find out whether Coco and ‘Remember Me’ will be the winners of their categories – the 75th Golden Globe Awards ceremony will be held on January 7th, 2018, at 5pm PST.

It’s been amazing seeing how Coco has affected the world in the short time since its release. 13 Annies Awards nominations, 2 Golden Globe nominations, thousands of overwhelmingly positive and touching reviews – and it’s not even out worldwide yet! In the US, it has topped the weekend box office for 3 weeks in a row, something that only 3 other Pixar movies has achieved (Toy Story and Toy Story 2 topped the box office 2 weeks in a row, and Finding Dory topped it an impressive 4 weeks in a row). And this is only the beginning of Coco‘s journey to inevitably becoming a beloved classic.
