MUMBAI: There will be five contenders for the Best Animated Feature category at the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

The amended rule now reads: Eligible films must be feature-length (70 minutes or longer) with no more than 25% live action. If less than eight animated films qualify, the award will not be given, in which case the films would be eligible for Best Picture. If less than twelve animated films qualify, the category will be limited to three nominations per year.
