The 2017 Golden Globe Awards animation winners

Updated on December 10, 2021

The 2017 Golden Globe Awards were presented last night. Here’s what nominees won for animation-related categories (winners in bold).

Best Animated Feature

  • “Zootopia”
  • “Kubo and the Two Strings”
  • “Moana”
  • “My Life as a Zucchini”
  • “Sing”

Best Song

  • “City of Stars,” “La La Land”
  • “Can’t Stop the Feeling!,” “Trolls”
  • “Faith,” “Sing”
  • “How Far I’ll Go,” “Moana”
  • “Gold,” “Gold”


“Zootopia” won for best animated feature; it beat “Moana,” its fellow Disney film. Pixar was shut out, despite “Finding Dory”‘s popularity.

Despite three of the five nominees being from animated films, the “Best Song” category was won by “La La Land,” a live action film. It’s yet another film about Hollywood/Los Angeles life, albeit a musical. Twitter had a lot of grumbling about how “La La Land” beat various other films not about Hollywood, or featured more diverse topics. Meanwhile, the best dramatic picture winner, “Moonlight,” got a better online reception.

Have you seen any of these films? What do you think of the nominees/winners?
