A Golden Globe Win for Inside Out
Pixar flick Inside Out won the prestigious Golden Globe Best Animated Feature Film at the Sunday night awards ceremony. The creative CG family film won out over Anomalisa, The Peanuts Movie, Shaun the Sheep Movie and The Good Dianosaur.
The win marked the 7th Pixar movie to receive the award in the category in the 10 years it has existed at the Globes – excluding The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn by Steven Speielberg for Paramount, Frozen by Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck for Disney and How to Train Your Dragon 2 by Dean DeBlois for Dreamworks last year.
Inside Out is partly set inside the emotionally chaotic world of a tweenage girl’s mind and it was highly praised for its complexity of feelings as well as the colourful worlds created to embody its concepts.
The animated film features the voices of Phyllis Smith, Amy Poehler, Lewis Black, Bill Hader and Mindy Kailing as the emotions, with Richard Kind as Riley’s waylaid imaginary friend who helps out Joy (Poehler) and Sadness (Smith) on their turbulent mission to restore Riley’s optimistic mental state.
