Golden Globe Awards Animation Nominees: The Pixar Duo, Shaun The Sheep, Anomalisa and Charle Brown

The 73nd Annual Golden Globe Award nominees were announced this morning. Nominated for Best Animated Feature were Pixar’s Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur, Blue Sky’s The Peanuts Movie, Aardman’s Shaun The Sheep Movie, and Starburns Industries Anomalisa. 

Reactions from the filmmakers? Steve Martino, Director of The Peanuts Movie – the first Golden Globe nom ever for Blue Sky Studios – sent us this statement from a camel in Dubai (where he received the news while riding in the middle of the desert with writer/producer Craig Schulz.  They are on a global press tour for the film): "This really is an incredible honor for the movie and I know I speak for everyone at Blue Sky and Fox Animation when I say a heartfelt thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press.   We are all honored to carry on the legacy of Charles Schulz and are thrilled to see audiences around the world embracing the film and that a whole new generation of fans are discovering the characters."

And from the team at Aardman: “We’ve just heard about the nomination and just like our film, we’re speechless,” said Richard Starzak and Mark Burton, Writer/Directors of Shaun The Sheep Movie.

Charlie Kaufman & Duke Johnson, the directors of Anomalisa, had this to say: "We are excited and honored to be recognized by the HFPA, especially alongside such great animated films. We share this honor with our immensely talented cast — Jennifer, David and Tom — and the best team of animators, designers, craftspeople and technicians who worked with such passion to bring ‘Anomalisa’ to life."
