Chicken Run Lays A Golden Globe Nom
The Golden Globe Awards, given out by the Hollywood Foreign Press, have always been kind to animated features. And this year is no exception. DreamWorks/Aardman's CHICKEN RUN has garnered itself a nomination for best musical or comedy. It competes against the live-action films ALMOST FAMOUS, BEST IN SHOW, CHOCOLAT and O' BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU? Last year, TOY STORY 2 took home the same prize. Disney's THE EMPEROR'S NEW GROOVE made an appearance in the very Disneyfied category of best original song for "My Funny Friend and Me." F/X films received nods in several categories also. GLADIATOR grabbed kudos for best drama, best actor Russell Crowe, best supporting actor Joaquin Phoenix and best original score. The hot Chinese film CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON kicked in nominations for best foreign language film, best director Ang Lee and best original score. The awards will be handed out on January 21, 2001 in Beverly Hills.
