Golden Globes go to Pixar's 'Up'

By Michael Cavna

Pixar wins the gold early at the 67th Golden Globes, as 6-foot-5 "Up" director Pete Docter bounds to the Beverly Hilton stage to accept the award for a film about a man who has his head in the clouds.

"Up" was voted Best Animated Film by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, besting such other critically lauded films as "Coraline" and "Fantastic Mr. Fox." "Up," co-directed by Bob Peterson, was Pixar's first 3-D film.

Shortly after, "Up" -- scored by Michael Giacchino -- also won the Globe for Best Musical Score / Motion Picture.

The Animated Film award was presented by Sir Paul McCartney, who not coincidentally will see a newly animated version of "Yellow Submarine" released soon. In presenting the award, the former Beatle said that animation is "not just for kids" anymore, but also for "drug-taking adults."
