Ghibli > Game of Thrones

The nominees for the 71st Golden Globe Awards were announced today, and Ghibli’s The Wind Rises is one of the finalists for Best Foreign Language Film.  The good news is that it’s the first Golden Globe nomination for Studio Ghibli.  The bad news is it’s unlikely to win, because also in the category is the much ballyhooed French film Blue is the Warmest Color. However, Ghibli can at least say they have more nominations than Game of Thrones, which received zero in the respective TV categories.

Other relevant titles receiving consideration:

Frozen: 2 nominations, (Best Animated Film, Best Original Song)
The Big Bang Theory: 2 (Best TV Comedy/Musical, Best Actor in a TV Comedy)
Hunger Games Catching Fire: 1 (Best Original Song)
Despicable Me 2: 1 (Best Animated Film)
Orphan Black: 1 (Best Actress in a TV Drama)
