It looks like another glittering awards season is on the way for Kilkenny's Cartoon Saloon as the studio's recent movie Wolfwalkers is nominated for a Golden Globe award.

The nominations were announced on Wednesday afternoon.

Wolfwalkers is nominated in the Best Motion Picture – Animated category, alongside:  “The Croods: A New Age” (Universal Pictures), “Onward” (Walt Disney Pictures), “Over the Moon” (Netflix)  and “Soul” (Walt Disney Pictures). 

The 78th Golden Globe awards will take place on February 28.

Directed by Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart, the film is hotly tipped for an Oscar this year, and has already been  nominated for Best Original Score at the Hollywood Music in Media awards.
