Visually stunning and refreshingly original, this year's Golden Globes nominees for "Best Animated Feature" performed incredibly well at the box office, although one clear winner proves supreme. 

The Nominees: 

"Big Hero 6" 

"The Lego Movie" 

"The Book of Life"

"How to Train Your Dragon 2"

"The Boxtrolls"

Even though the widely popular "How to Train Your Dragon 2" grossed over $600 million at the box office, only about $175 million was domestic. We predict this fan favorite will end up as a close second. 

"The Lego Movie," whose directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller already nabbed the National Board of Review award for best original screenplay, is proving to be a revolutionary film. The movie is also nominated for the Oscars as well as multiple other award shows.

"The Lego Movie" follows the journey of Emmet (Chris Pratt), an ordinary construction worker who begins rewriting the rules of his world while making fabulous pals along the way, including the vivacious Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks) and of course Batman. 

Mark our words: "The Lego Movie" should and will win tomorrow for best animated feature, as it introduces a clever voice that is sure to revolutionize action-comedies.
