Winning the Hollywood Foreign Press’ Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Feature was Disney’s Zootopia. The event was held tonight at Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Upon accepting the award, director Byron Howard made a statement about the film “We wanted to make a film that not only spoke to kids, but to adults, addressing diversity, even when there are people in the world who want to divide us by using fear”. Director Rich Moore and producer Clark Spencer also accepted.
Congratulations to the crew at Disney feature animation – and all the other nominees.
For the record, none of the animated films nominated for BEST SONG – Trolls, Sing and Moana and their songwriters (which included Justin Timberlake, Stevie Wonder and Lin-Manuel Miranda) – won the award in that category (It went to La La Land).
