We have no doubt that the other animated films are also amazing but our hearts belong to Elsa and Anna. Despite Frozen 2 is a runner up by the odds, it is reasonable to bet on its victory. Follow our guide if you want to know why!
This is the long-awaited sequel of the original film
It took us years to see our favorite Frozen characters on the big screen again. Yes, the original film came out in 2013, so Frozen fans have been waiting for six long years to see Anna and Elsa have grown up. Such a big gap between two parts could either played for Frozen 2 and raise interest in it or lead to its flop as people might have forgotten the original story. Luckily, the popularity of the original film was so big that it stood the test of time.
The plot of the sequel touches upon the issue of growing up too. Moreover, this is probably the most important message of the film (no spoilers ahead). Elsa has grown up, found self-confidence and her place in the world. Anna has grown up by becoming much wiser and calmer. The audience of the original Frozen has grown up too, so everyone will find something related to them. Probably, this is a more adult movie that children’s one, which can also play for Frozen 2 at the Golden Globes.
Bet on Frozen 2 to win due to its critical appraisal
This is probably the most questionable point among all the reasons why should you bet on Frozen 2 to win an award. Despite the film reviews are mostly positive, they lose to the original story about two princesses. Both critics and the audience highly evaluate its visuals, vocal performances, and find it “heart-touching”. On the other hand, reviews show that the plot and songs are both weaker than the original Frozen had.
However, there is the other side of the coin. If we take a look at another, we will see that Frozen 2 got nominations for several awards, including the Golden Globes. Speaking about the last one, the film will compete in two categories – Best Song and Best Animated Feature. This gives the film 5.50 odds to win in the last category according to 1xBet Sportsbook.
Huge box-office is not the last reason to bet on Frozen 2 to win
The success of Frozen 2 in cinemas is another reason to believe in its triumph at the Golden Globes. Yes, money doesn’t always win but you can’t disagree that the popularity of the film can play for him at various awards. The more it grosses, the more people like it. Since every prestigious award ceremony needs viewers to stay in high demand, it will nominate popular films too. Therefore, you can bet on Frozen 2 to win one of them – the Golden Globes – due to its commercial success.
The box office results of the film are really impressive. It took less than a month for the sequel of Elsa and Anna’s adventures to get $1 billion worldwide. Therefore, Frozen 2 can easily outrun the King Lion remake and become the highest-grossing animation of all times (as it was with Frozen). The sequel broke the record as the highest-grossing opening for an animated film.
The Frozen franchise is the new classics
When the original Frozen animated film came out, no one could imagine its colossal impact on pop culture. The film gained popularity one barely imagined an animated movie could have. Critics called it “the Lion King of the 21st century”. Products with Frozen characters occupied the top 3 most popular merch of the 2010s. The film grossed more than $1 billion worldwide and won two Oscars for Best Animated Film and Best Original Song. Oh, and here it comes.“Let It Go” performed by Elsa (Idina Menzel) was literally everywhere! It reached #5 at Billboard Hot 100. It won the Grammy award, Oscar, Critics Choice and everything that could be won that year. “Let It Go” sold more than 10 million copies and got no less number of covers, which made it one of the most viral songs of the decade.
In addition, Frozen became the best-selling film on Blu-rays of all time in the US. It got its own Broadway musical and several short films. The animation characters appeared also on ice skating shows and other movies. Moreover, the film’s character, Elsa, was named the best Disney princess of all time. She also became a role model for girls, while her name survived a wave of popularity among newborns in the US.
As we can see, the cultural impact of the Frozen franchise was and still remains impressive. Bet on Frozen 2 to win at the Golden Globes 2020 to prove it’s the best animated series once again.
