Every 8-year-old is excited this time of year; it’s awards season! And first up are the Golden Globes. It’s true that I have never actually been able to stay up late enough to watch the Golden Globes, but that does not hinder me from announcing the winners before bedtime. Hence, without further delay, here’s who deserves to win:
Walter really deserves this award. While no other Muppet had any idea that Kermit had been kidnapped and replaced by the evil Constantine, Walter was always suspicious. He was also the first to realize that they needed to find and rescue Kermit in order to save all the Muppets. You can’t get more supportive than that.
The Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture goes to … Wyldstyle from The Lego Movie.
Wildstyle cared a lot for Emmet when she still believed he was a Master Builder. Understandably, her support faltered as soon as word got out that Emmet was just an ordinary construction worker. But in the end, Wyldstyle came around to help Emmet defeat Lord Business and even picked him over Batman (!).
The Golden Globe for Best Original Song goes to … Everything is Awesome from The Lego Movie.
It’s really all right there in the name of the song.
The Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture goes to … Baymax from Big Hero 6.
This is an easy pick for me. Baymax started out as an inflatable robot that really didn’t know anything. The first thing he learned was to take care of people. Even though he gained new armor and learned to fly, the first lesson he learned was always the most important. The only inflatable hero robot in a movie this year made him very hard to beat.
The Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Motion Picture goes to … the Mama Bear in Bears.
It’s hard to be a bear raising cubs in the wild. She does a great job protecting them and teaching them to fish. You almost forgot she was a real bear by the end of the movie. Mom reminded me when I asked for a baby bear as a pet.
The Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture goes to … How to Train Your Dragon 2.
Hiccup the Viking rides a flying dragon through the whole movie! A flying dragon! How could it not win?
Congratulations to all the Golden Globe winners!
[Update: Dad just told me that cartoon characters, Lego people, bears, and Muppets can’t even be nominated. That is ridiculous! Join me in writing a letter of protest to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.]
