The Wind Rises Earns Golden Globe Nomination for Best Foreign Language Film
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced its nominees for the 71st Annual Golden Globes on Thursday, and Hayao Miyazaki's 11th and final film The Wind Rises is nominated for Best Foreign Language Film.
The film is competing alongside France's Blue is the Warmest Color, Italy's The Great Beauty, Denmark's The Hunt, and Iran's The Past.
The Wind Rises was one of 58 total films (and two animated films) that made the shortlist for the Best Foreign Language Film category last month. Also included on that shortlist was Hirokazu Kore-eda's Soshite Chichi ni Naru (Like Father, Like Son) live-action film.
No anime were nominated for Best Animated Feature Film. The films nominated in that category are The Croods, Despicable Me 2, and Frozen.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association will host the awards on January 12, 2014.
The Wind Rises has also been submitted for an Oscar nomination. The film was nominated for the Asia Pacific Screen Awards but did not win, and has been nominated for an Annie Award and a Satellite Award. The Wind Rises has also recently won the Best Animated Film Award from the New York Film Critics Circle, The National Board of Review, The Boston Society of Film Critics, and the San Diego Film Critics Society.
Update: The nomination marks the first time a Studio Ghibli film has been nominated for the Best Foreign Language film for the Golden Globes. The last time Japan won the category was in 1990 when Dreams (Yume) won, although Clint Eastwood's Letters from Iwo Jima film won in 2006.
