How To Train Your Dragon 2 has triumphed in the Animated Feature category at last night’s Golden Globes awards.
The DreamWorks Animation sequel beat the likes of The LEGO Movie, Big Hero 6, The Book of Life and The Boxtrolls to the award.
DreamWorks Animation had previously been nominated six times in this Golden Globes category and last night’s win marks the first time in the studio’s history that it has won the prize since the Animated Feature category was introduced in 2006.
“Wow, this is incredible," said writer and director of How To Train Your Dragon 2, Dean DeBlois.
"Thank you so much. We’re so excited. On behalf of over 400 people who worked on this film, from the bottom of our hearts we thank the Hollywood Foreign Press. We’d love to thank the leadership at DreamWorks: Jeffrey Katzenberg, Ann Daly, and Bill Damaschke. To our amazing partners who were with us on the distribution of it: Jim Gianopulos and all the great people at Fox. To Cressida Cowell, who actually created the whole world that we’ve been able to play in; she’s the author of the books.
"To our incredible cast, our incredible crew, to our incredible producer Bonnie Arnold. Thank you so much to our families; to Dave Wirtschafter and Jeff Gorin at William Morris; to Linda Lichter and Peter Nichols, our attornies; we thank you so much.”
