On Monday, Dec. 9, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced its nominations for the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards, recognizing excellence in domestic and foreign films and television programs.
Frozen 2, directed by Chris Buck (Film/Video 78) and Jennifer Lee, is nominated for Best Animated Feature Film. The highly anticipated sequel’s story picks up where the first film—which earned the 2014 Golden Globe in the same category—left off. Elsa, who finally has the company of her loved ones all under the same roof, attempts to quell persistent thoughts of embarking into the unknown. She finally relents when she hears a voice singing out to her, and she follows it to the far north, where the rest of the crew tags along for a new adventure. “Into the Unknown,” an original song written for Frozen 2 by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, is also nominated for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture.
Ford v Ferrari, directed by James Mangold (Film/Video BFA 85), earned a nod for Christian Bale who is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture. The biopic covers the true story of British-born driving expert Ken Miles (Bale) and American car designer Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon), who team up to build a game-changing race car for Henry Ford II’s Ford Motor Company.
