Netflix becomes the first streamer to win a Golden Globe animated feature

2 min read

Taking home the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film, “Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio” just beat Netflix in the first-ever streamer category. Del Toro also made history for himself as the first Latino winner. (Note: Films that have previously won have had co-directors, such as Charis Castro Smith from “Encanto,” but co-directors are usually not official nominees or winners.)

Accepting the Golden Globe, del Toro declared that “animation is cinema,” continuing, “animation is not a genre for kids, it’s a medium.”

Since the category’s inception in 2006, only four winners of the Globes animation category have failed to win an Oscar: “Cars” (2006), “The Adventures of Tintin” (2011), “How to Train Your Dragon 2” (2014) and “Missing Link” (2019). They lost to Globe-nominees including “Happy Feet,” “Rango,” “Big Hero 6” and “Toy Story 4,” respectively. Steven Spielberg’s “Tintin” is the only film to win a Globe and not win an Oscar.

Netflix received four Oscar nods for animated features — “I Lost My Body” (2020), “Klaus” (2020), “Over the Moon” (2021) and “The Mitchells vs. the Machines” (2022). But still could not win the category. “Pinocchio” was recently nominated by the Academy in three technical categories (sound, original score and original song) and was longlisted in six at BAFTA (animated film, adapted screenplay, original score, production design, special visual effects and sound).

Del Toro directed the adaptation of Carlo Collodi’s classic story with Mark Gustafson and co-wrote it with Patrick McHale. The film won more than 15 Pioneer Awards from critics groups, including the LAFCA. The film has also been nominated for the Critics’ Choice Awards held on Sunday, January 15
