Last night (Jan. 10), the 73rd Golden Globe Awards were held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. Hosted by actor and comedian Ricky Gervais, the awards honor excellence in film and television, both foreign and domestic.
Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out, directed by CalArts alumnus Pete Docter (Film/Video BFA 90), took home the award for Best Motion Picture, Animated beating out Anomalisa, The Good Dinosaur [directed by Peter Sohn (Film/Video BFA 99)], The Peanuts Movie and Shaun the Sheep Movie.
In his acceptance speech, Docter said:
Wow. You know, when I was in junior high, literally, my goal was to make it through the day with no one noticing me. Obviously, something went horribly wrong tonight. But the point is we felt like growing up is really hard, and that’s a worthy subject to make a movie about.
