Disney dominates the Golden Globes animation – again – but "Spider-Man" looks like a strong wild card


YOU CAN ANYONE stop the Disney franchise sequels?

The Golden Globe nominations were announced on Thursday by the HFPA and, as expected, Disney's big favorites "Ralph Breaks the Internet" and Disney / Pixar "Incredibles 2" received a mention in the category of animated characters.

That expected recognition is valid for the form. Disney and Disney / Pixar have won this category 10 of its 12 years of existence.

So who among the relatives could even challenge the Big 2?

Wes Anderson, already nominated for "Fantastic Mr. Fox", was again nominated for his second stop-motion project, "Isle of Dogs". It is worth noting, however, that a non-CGI film has never won this award.

Elsewhere, the only one named overseas is "Mirai", directed by the Japanese director Mamoru Hosoda and distributed by GKIDS. A trend that works against its possibilities, however, is the fact that a non-American film has never won this award.

This leaves a strong contender for wild cards in this race: Sony's "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse".

In an important year for the color superheroes recognized by the Globes – including three nominations for Marvel's "Black Panther" – the story of Miles Morales has a lot to offer.

Among the first positive reviews, "Spider-Verse" boasts an elegant visual style that is spinning its head. It also includes a Golden Globes pedigree: Pioneer co-director Peter Ramsey was previously nominated in 2012 for "Rise of the Guardians".

But can a non-Disney film find a critical enough favor with the Hollywood Foreign Press to unseat a version of Mouse House?

The probable scenario: o "Incredibles 2" Brad Bird (winner of the previous Globe for "Ratatouille") or "Ralph" by Rich Moore (a previous winner of the Globe for "Zootopia") will join Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich of Pixar as only directors to win this category twice.

The winner will be announced on January 6 during the awards ceremony broadcast on NBC.
