Incredibles 2 Nominated for Golden Globe Award

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.”
