There will be five contenders for the Best Animated Feature category when the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards nominations are announced at 5am (PT) on Tuesday morning, December 15, it was announced today by Philip Berk, President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
Members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association voted last week to expand this year's number of nominations for Best Animated Feature to five.
The amended rule now reads: "Eligible films must be feature-length (70 minutes or longer) with no more than 25% live action. If less than eight animated films qualify, the award will not be given, in which case the films would be eligible for Best Picture. If less than twelve animated films qualify, the category will be limited to three nominations per year."
The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Ricky Gervais, will be broadcast live coast to coast Sunday, January 17 on NBC (5 to 8 pm PT, 8 to 11 pm ET) from The Beverly Hilton.
