Sure, the Oscars love Pixar’s brand of animated films just as much as the rest of the world. But do you know which Pixar movies were embraced by the Academy Awards and which were cruelly snubbed? Click through our photo gallery above to see all of Pixar’s winners and losers.
Pixar movies have been a dominant force in Hollywood since the original “Toy Story” took its bow way back in 1995. The studio has released 17 total features over the past two decades, including last year’s “Finding Dory” that earned fan acclaim and boffo box office, but failed to score an Oscar nomination. Vote for your favorite Pixar film in our poll.
Thanks in part to the success of Pixar, the Oscars even created a Best Animated Feature category in 2001. Since then, a whopping eight Pixar movies have won that top Oscar including their most recent champ “Inside Out” (2015). Two such films even went on to earn Best Picture nominations, which we detail in the photo gallery above.
The next feature films from Pixar will be “Cars 3” on June 16, 2017 and “Coco” on November 22, 2017. “Coco” tells the story of Miguel, a young boy who’s forbidden to play music by his family so he turns to the late Mexican guitarist Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt) for inspiration. Simply touching Ernesto’s guitar takes him to the Land of the Dead where he meets Hector (Gael Garcia Bernal), a charmer who just happens to be a skeleton.
