Disney dominates the Golden Globes animation – again – but 'Spider-Man' lands like a savage

CAN SOMEONE MAY stop the consequences of the Disney franchise?

The Golden Globes nominations were announced Thursday by the HFPA and, as expected, by Disney's "Ralph Breaks the Internet" favorites and by Disney / Pixar's "Incredibles 2" in the feature film category.

This expected recognition is true for the form. Disney and Disney / Pixar have won this category 10 times over 12 years.

So who among the newcomers could even challenge the Big 2?

Wes Anderson, former candidate of the movie "Fantastic Mr. Fox", is again nominated for his second project in stop motion, "Isle of Dogs". It should be noted, however, that a non-CGI film has never won this award.

Elsewhere, the only nominated abroad is "Mirai", directed by Japanese filmmaker Mamoru Hosoda and distributed by GKIDS. A trend that goes against his chances, however, is the fact that a non-American film has never won this prize.

This leaves a powerful pretender to the wild card in this race: "Spider-Man: in the Spider-Verse" from Sony.

In a major year for the globally recognized color superheroes – including three nominations for Marvel's "Black Panther" – Miles Morales' story has it all.

Among the first positive reviews, "Spider-Verse" displays an elegant visual style that turns heads. It also includes a Golden Globes pedigree: the pioneering co-director Peter Ramsey had already been nominated in 2012 for "Rise of the Guardians".

But can a non-Disney film find enough criticism from the Hollywood Foreign Press to overthrow a Mouse House release?

The likely scenario: Brad Bird (former winner of the Globe for "Ratatouille") at "Incredibles 2" or Rich Ralph ("former Globe winner" for "Zootopia") will join Pete Docter of Pixar and Lee Unkrich win this category twice.

The winner will be announced on January 6th at the awards ceremony broadcast on NBC.
