HFPA Reveals Conventional List of Golden Globe Animation Noms

The Hollywood Foreign Press came up with a more conventional list of nominees in the Best Animated Feature category this morning. Surprisingly enough, the Golden Globes completely shut out the bolder and unconventional options available this year—Sergio Pablos’ Klaus (Netflix/SPA) and Jeremy Clapin’s I Lost My Body (Xilam/Netflix) and opted for the more popular studio entries —Frozen 2 (Disney), Toy Story 4 (Disney/Pixar) How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (DreamWorks Animation/Univ.) and Missing Link (LAIKA). The big surprise was the inclusion of Disney’s The Lion King, which wasn’t promoted by the studio as an animated feature.

The nominees:

  • Frozen 2 (Disney)
  • How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (DreamWorks, Universal)
  • The Lion King (Disney)
