Comic book fans were excited to see that a superhero film was finally nominated for a Golden Globe Award in the Best Motion Picture - Drama category with Black Panther, but the Hollywood Foreign Press Association snubbed other fan-favorite films, including Paddington 2.
While some audiences might dismiss the film as being nothing more than a family-friendly adventure featuring a CGI bear, with over 200 reviews tabulated on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes, the film maintains a 100 percent positive rating. Hitting theaters this past January, Paddington 2 has been praised throughout all of 2018, even scoring itself coveted positions on multiple best of the year lists.
Fans of the film would have settled for seeing the film earn any nomination in the Musical or Comedy arena of the awards, though it was snubbed completely. As a result, fans of the film have taken to social media in hopes of seeking #JusticeForPaddington.

Your overt display of malignant cowardice ignoring Paddington 2 in your little “awards ceremony” is a blight upon your bloodline and your loved ones who, it can now be certain, do not love you in return— Natalie Walker (@nwalks) December 6, 2018
You Didn't See It
Dear @goldenglobes You didn’t see Paddington 2. We know that. You know that. And you should feel ashamed.

me: awards shows don't actually mean anything about quality or artistry :) they're all about the marketing budgets of huge corporations and inflating ceremony viewership as much as possible for more ad $$— melissa (@meliboh) December 6, 2018
