Congratulations to Golden Globe Winner Frozen!

At the Sunday night 71st Golden Globe Awards, Disney’s Frozen was up for two awards: Best Song and Best Animated Film.

The nominees for Best Song were as follows:

  1. Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez’s “Let It Go” for Frozen
  2. Taylor Swift and Jack Antonoff’s “Sweeter Than Fiction” from One Chance
  3. U2’s “Ordinary Love” from Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom 
  4. Coldplay’s “Atlas” from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
  5. Ed Rush, George Cromarty, T Bone Burnett, Justin Timberlake, Joel Coen and Ethan Coen’s “Please Mr. Kennedy” from Inside Llewyn Davis

Now, me being me, I was sitting on my couch rooting for Frozen to win. Not just because the song has every single element that you want a “Best Song” to have, (including the last, amazingly strong and top-of-your-lungs note!) but because the video alone on youtube received 36 million views! I thought that kind of popularity would account for something.

Wow! That’s a lot of views!

And no offense to U2, who won for the category, but I have heard the song. And honestly, meh. I appreciate the history behind the song, combined with the fact that the late Nelson Mandela was a muse for the band. So I can understand why when that is taken into consideration, they won.

But if your going in blind and just listening to the two songs – oh, man! I think Frozen had it over them without argument. But, that’s just my opinion. 🙂

The night went on, and I’ll admit that I had other motives for watching besides seeing how Frozen did. And his name is Leonardo DiCaprio. But enough of that, this is a Disney blog.

Who put that there?…

Anyways. Frozen was also nominated for Best Animated Feature. They were up against Despicable Me 2 and The Croods.

Now, I have seen all three of them. I enjoyed Despicable Me 2, although I probably wouldn’t watch it again. It felt like… well, a sequel I suppose. And The Croods entertained me while I watched the movie, but once it was over, I kind of shrugged and forgot about it until it was mentioned again Sunday night. But Frozen – oh yeah! The movie has everything. I knew they were going to win, I mean come on, it’s probably one of the best movies of 2013 in general!
