Monsters University Overlooked from the 2014 Golden Globe Nominations

The upcoming Award Season continues to surprise us as the Golden Globes announced their 2014 nominations for the 71st annual award show and shockingly, Pixar's Monsters University was omitted from recognition. When the Golden Globes first introduced the Best Animated Feature category back in 2006, Pixar had continuously been nominated and had won the golden statue every year with the exception of 2011, when Cars 2 lost to The Adventures of Tintin. Those facts makes the omission of Monsters U even more puzzling to the hoards of Pixar fans still scratching their heads after the nomination announcement.

The 2014 Golden Globe nominations for Best Animated Feature only includes three films - The Croods, Despicable Me 2 and Frozen. While it is hard not to be biased based on our love for Monsters University - having seen all three nominated films, we can't help but be left in bewilderment on why a fourth film wasn't included in the running as Monsters University continues to surprise us in the many technical achievements that the team overcame to create this beautiful film - not to mention, a story that not only captivated our hearts but one we could all relate to.

Could it be a numbers games? Many have wondered if Monsters University may have been overlooked due to numbers at the box office and we can't help but disagree with comments such as these. Monsters University is the fourth highest grossing film in the studio's history. Below is a list of the 2014 Golden Globe nominations for Best Animated Feature along with their box office numbers (and Rotten Tomatoes rating) - including Monsters University for reference.

  • The Croods grossed $187 Million domestically and a worldwide total of just over $587 Million. Rotten Tomatoes critics rating (70%) and audience rating (79%).
  • Despicable Me 2 grossed $367 Million domestically and a worldwide total of just over $918 Million. Rotten Tomatoes critics rating (75%) and audience rating (85%).
  • Frozen is currently still in theaters, as it is a newly released animated feature the film has currently grossed over $138 Million domestically. Rotten Tomatoes critics rating (88%) and audience rating (91%).
  • Monsters University grossed $268 Million domestically and a worldwide total of over $743 Million. Rotten Tomatoes critics rating (78%) and audience rating (83%).

We do not want to discredit any of the three films that were nominated as each team worked hard to create wonderful animated films for us all to enjoy - we are just perplexed to why Monsters U was left out of the running. While the nominations for the 2014 Academy Awards have yet to be announced we can only keep our fingers crossed that Monsters University will not be overlooked once again. Please be sure to share your thoughts with us on The Pixar Post Forum.
