This is amazing, but expect the norm: be happy for the nomination, don’t get upset if it doesn’t win.
Earlier today, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the full list of nominees for this year’s Golden Globe Awards. Mamoru Hosoda’s Mirai was nominated for Best Animated Feature, and runs against four other films:
- Incredibles 2

Mamoru Hosoda (Summer Wars, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time) directed the project at Studio Chizu. Hosoda is also credited with the scripts and original story.
GKIDS describes Mirai as:
When four-year-old Kun meets his new baby sister, his world is turned upside down. Named Mirai (meaning “future”), the baby quickly wins the hearts of Kun’s entire family. As his mother returns to work, and his father struggles to run the household, Kun becomes increasingly jealous of baby Mirai… until one day he storms off into the garden, where he encounters strange guests from the past and future – including his sister Mirai, as a teenager. Together, Kun and teenage Mirai go on a journey through time and space, uncovering their family’s incredible story.
