The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced on Sunday the 12 animated films that will vie for a nomination for the Best Animated Feature category of the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Studio Ghibli and Hiromasa Yonebayashi's The Secret World of Arrietty and Studio Ghibli and Goro Miyazaki's From Up On Poppy Hill have both made the shortlist. The HFPA can choose up to five films for the final nominee list.
The other 10 films on the shortlist include:
- Wreck-it Ralph
- Ice Age: Continental Drift
- Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted
- Rise of the Guardians
- The Lorax
- Pirates! Band of Misfits
- Hotel Transylvania
In 2009 the HFPA increased the maximum number of nominations for this category from three to five. The HFPA will announce its official slate of nominees on December 13. The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards will be held on January 13.
The HFPA added a Best Animated Feature category starting with the 64th Annual Golden Globe Awards in 2007. Since then, no anime film has won or been nominated for the award. To be eligible for a Golden Globe, films must be released and screened for at least seven days in Los Angeles during the year prior to the award ceremony.
From Up On Poppy Hill is also one of the 21 films that have been submitted for possible Oscar nominations in the Best Animated Feature Film category of the 85th Academy Awards. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will announce its final nominations on January 10.
