While fans are rightfully upset over Black Panther getting snubbed by the Golden Globes (it was way better than Bohemian Rhapsody, fight me), they should take solace in the fact that Marvel and Sony won big thanks to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The brilliant animated film won Best Animated Feature and, to be frank, it would be an insult if it didn't with given the competition.
Seriously, who here thinks Wreck-it Ralph 2 is better than Into the Spider-Verse?
The film has the huge task of making this a story about Miles Morales, while also involving multiple Spider-Men for marketing purposes. Somehow, they managed to center the focus on Miles and Peter B. Parker, maybe Gwen Stacy if we're being polite. Out of all the films that have featured Spider-Man, it managed to get the "anyone can be Spider-Man" message better than anything that came before it.
Co-director Peter Ramsey said the following during his speech (via The Hollywood Reporter):
"Anyone can wear the mask; everyone is powerful and everyone is necessary, and that is the spirit of the movie. We all felt deeply that anyone can have this kind of experience and be this kind of hero. The story of Miles Morales was a way to crystallize all of those feelings into one character."
Aside from Ralph Breaks the Internet, Into the Spider-Verse also had to fend off Isle of Dogs, Incredibles 2, and Mirai. Those are much better films than the Wreck-it Ralph sequel so it had some stiff competition. Still, seeing Miles and his buddies win this award is nice, though some might bring up the whole "superheroes are being too mainstream" argument again.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse may or may not be showing anymore. Expect a Blu-Ray announcement soon.
