Damien Chazelle's "La La Land" holds the record for the most awards won by a single film with seven. The Golden Globes Awards, hosted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, is held annually with 93 members since 1944. Only five studios in total have been nominated in this race more than twice: Pixar, Walt Disney Animation Studios (10 nominations, 2 wins), DreamWorks Animation (9 nominations, 1 win), Sony Pictures Animation (4 nominations, 1 win) and Laika (4 nominations, 1 win). Robert Altman's "Nashville" has the record for most nominations received by a film with 11 while Colin Higgins' "Foul Play," Francis Ford Coppola's "The Godfather Part III" and Mike Nichols' "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" share the record for receiving the most nominations and not winning a single award at seven. The group recognizes excellence in film and television, across drama and comedy or musical categories. The animated feature category was created in 2006, and Pixar is the most nominated studio with 12 nominations and eight wins. Milos Forman's "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and Alan Parker's "Midnight Express" is next in line with six each.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has a history of favoring the big studios and the presumed "frontrunners" in this category. Last year, they turned heads when they chose Laika's "Missing Link" over Pixar's eventual winner, "Toy Story 4." Is this a year where they could go their own way again and choose something like "Over the Moon" from Netflix or "The Croods: A New Age" from DreamWorks, or will they be charmed by either "Soul" from Pixar or "Wolfwalkers" from Apple TV Plus and GKIDS?
