Golden Globes: 'The Adventures of Tintin' wins best animated film

The Adventures of Tintin

"The Adventures of Tintin," director Steven Spielberg's 3-D performance-capture adaptation of the beloved European comic serial, won the animated film prize at the 69th Golden Globes ceremony Sunday.

Based on the work of Hergé — the cartoonist born George Remi died in 1982 — “The Adventures of Tintin” presents a turbocharged version of the hero that fans like Spielberg's producing partner Peter Jackson grew up with: Tintin (portrayed by Jamie Bell of “Billy Elliot” fame) is a bright, brave and loyal reporter who, with his dog, Snowy, travels the world to solve mysteries and embrace adventure, like a cross between Nancy Drew and Indiana Jones. Tintin is joined by a boozy sea captain named Haddock (Andy Serkis) and a pair of daft Scotland Yard investigators named Thomson and Thompson (Simon Pegg and Nick Frost), while his nemesis is a mysterious fellow named Ivanovich Sakharine (Daniel Craig).

"Tintin" is the first animated feature from Spielberg, whose World War I live-action drama "War Horse" is nominated in the Globes' best picture race.
