Pete Docter and Ronnie del Carmen accepted the Golden Globe for their Best Animated Feature Film winning Pixar flick Inside Out at the Sunday night awards ceremony. The inventive CG family film won out over indie darling Anomalisa, Brit import Shaun the Sheep Movie, The Peanuts Movie and Pixar’s late year release The Good Dinosaur.
The victory marked the seventh Pixar movie to win the category in the ten years it has existed at the Globes — the exceptions being Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn for Paramount, Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee’s Frozen for Disney and Dean DeBlois’ How to Train Your Dragon 2 for DreamWorks last year.
Inside Out is set partially inside the emotionally turbulent world of a tweenage girl’s mind, and was widely lauded for its depth of feeling and the colorful worlds creative to represent its concepts. The film featured the voices of Amy Poehler, Phyllis Smith, Mindy Kaling, Lewis Black and Bill Hader as the emotions, with Richard Kind playing Riley’s waylaid imaginary friend who helps Joy (Poehler) and Sadness (Smith) on their tumultuous quest to restore Riley’s happy-go-lucky mental state after a cross country move spins her life upside down.
