Globes expands Animated Feature category

HFPA vote increases category to five pics

The Golden Globes’ animated feature category has been expanded from three to five after a vote last week by the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn.

Nominees for the newly expanded category will be announced Dec. 15 at 5 a.m. The two extra spots should afford a better opportunity to nonstudio films as well as hybrids of live action and animation.

The new rules say that any nominated film must be feature length (70 minutes or longer) and can have no more than 25% live action; if fewer than 12 films qualify, the category will revert to three nominees.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences recently confirmed that there are sufficient contenders for the Oscars’ animation category this year to result in five nominees.
