The Adven­tures Of Tintin: Secret Of The Unicorn

Steven Spielberg’s “The Adven­tures Of Tintin: Secret Of The Uni­corn” was named Best Ani­mated Fea­ture Film at Sun­day night’s Golden Globe Awards, the biggest awards show next to the Oscars.

Co-produced by Amblin Enter­tain­ment, Dream­Works Pic­tures, Wingnut Films and Nick­elodeon Films, The Adven­tures Of Tintin: Secret Of The Uni­corn was dis­trib­uted by Para­mount Pic­tures and Colum­bia Pic­tures. Spiel­berg accepted the award at the 69th Annual Golden Globe.

The Adven­tures of Tintin beat out Arthur Christ­mas, Cars 2, Puss In Boots and Rango for the honor.

It’s the first ani­mated film made by Spiel­berg, who told reporters in the press room: “Ani­ma­tion gives you so much rope to hang your­self with. You can get very com­plex in your chore­og­ra­phy of the camera.”

He added: “It’s such a mal­leable art form. It drove Bob Zemeckis away from live action.”

Spiel­berg gave thanks to Zemeckis for being an inno­va­tor in film tech­nol­ogy. “Bob is the Thomas Edi­son of the motion cap­ture, new medium. Peter Jack­son, myself and James Cameron all take our hats off to him,” he said.

He said he wasn’t con­cerned about using old mate­r­ial, such as the ven­er­a­ble comic books that inspired the Tintin film.

It’s not impor­tant to look for rel­e­vancy when you’re try­ing to enter­tain peo­ple,” he said, adding that the director’s style and value will pro­vide relevancy.

Mean­while, in the cat­e­gory of Best Orig­i­nal Song, “Hello Hello” — from Disney’s ani­mated Gnomeo & Juliet, with music by Elton John and lyrics by Bernie Taupin — lost to “Mas­ter­piece,” from the live-action W.E.
