Each year, the Golden Globe Awards aim to celebrate the best that film and television have to offer, and Nintendo’s own iconic plumber (and his nemesis Bowser) have bagged a few of the nominations for the 2024 awards season.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie has been nominated for Best Motion Picture – Animated, pitting it against the bombastic and ambitious Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, the stunningly gorgeous anime film Suzume, Disney and Pixar’s Elemental, Disney’s Wish, and Hayao Miyazaki’s self-proclaimed final film, The Boy and the Heron.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie has also been nominated for the Cinematic and Box Office Achievement award, alongside the smash hit of the year, Barbie and the hugely successful concert film, Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour. Other nominees include Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, Oppenheimer, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning, Part One, Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3, and John Wick: Chapter 4.
Finally, the King of the Koopas himself has earned a Best Original Song – Motion Picture nomination for “Peaches,” the soulful ballad crooned by Jack Black as Bowser in the Super Mario Bros. Movie. “Peaches” is up against “Addicted to Romance” from She Came to me, “Road to Freedom” from Rustin, and a whopping three songs from Barbie: “I’m Just Ken,” “Dance the Night Away,” and “What Was I Made For?”
It would be nice to see Mario and co. take home some Golden Globe awards on Sunday, January 7th, 2024, but there is some heavy competition in a lot of these categories, so Mario and Bowser both have their work cut out for them. When the time comes, you can watch the Golden Globe Awards live on CBS and Paramount+ on January 7th, 2024 at 5 p.m. PT to see if The Super Mario Bros. movie takes home the gold.
