I’m really curious what five films people believe will get in next year for Best Animated Feature. There is a whole slew of animated films this year with 2 Wat Disney films, 2 Dreamworks, a Pixar, 2 Illumination, & many, many more.
Kung Fu Panda 3
Secret Life of Pets
I could also see Angry Birds Movie or Storks or Kubo and the Two Strings making it in instead of one of the others. What does everyone else think? Also, does anyone think there are any locks at this point? I think Zootopia is a lock for sure. (It’s amazing!)March 19, 2016 at 10:59 pm #600060
Paramount was going to release The Little Prince but dropped it. It has now been aquired by Netflix. I’m sure Netflix will campaign for itMarch 19, 2016 at 11:03 pm #600062
The Little Prince won the Cesar award for animated film and it has a style of animation that the animation branch might likeMarch 19, 2016 at 11:08 pm #600064
Kubo and the Two Strings has a very good chance of getting nominated. Maybe it bumps out Kung Fu Panda.March 19, 2016 at 11:10 pm #600066
GKIDS has April and The Extaordinary World. I would watch out for something like that.March 20, 2016 at 9:07 am #600116
Odd since The Little Prince was playing at my local cinema. But I live in Canada so I don’t know.
Also, I think I already had a thread similar to this.March 20, 2016 at 9:16 am #600117
Kubo is definitely getting nominated. It’s so stylistic the academy can’t ignore it.March 20, 2016 at 5:31 pm #600193
If Loving Vincent is eligible and isn’t nominated I will sue.March 20, 2016 at 6:42 pm #600205
As much as I really liked Zootopia and Kung Fu Panda 3, I still am hoping there will be a better Animated film to come out this year. C’mon Kubo and the 2 Strings, be the 1st Laika film to finally win the Oscar!March 22, 2016 at 9:50 am #600618
April and the Extraordinary World
Kubo and the Two Strings
The Little Prince
it is knownMarch 23, 2016 at 6:22 am #600769
Here’s the thing: I think that if Disney plays their cards right, Zootopia has a chance to be nominated for Best Picture. Here are the facts;
* It has a 99% on RottenTomatoes.
* If it becomes the most critically successful film from the first 6 months of the year, it could be remembered a la The Grand Budapest Hotel.
* It should be one of the first screener copies that voters get.
And most importantly;
* It has a message that is important and socially relevant, something most animated movies don’t have, but certainly something Oscar looks for.
