    Academy Announces Submissions for Best Animated Film

    Published: November 02, 2012 @ 2:13 pm

     

    By Lucas Shaw

    “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Frankenweenie” and “Hotel Transylvania” are among the 21 animated films submitted for the 2013 Oscars, the Academy announced on Friday.

    The list includes several of the year’s most successful films, such as DreamWorks Animation’s “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” and “Ice Age Continental Drift,” as well as critical darlings like “Paranorman” and “Ralph.”

    Several of the films, such as “Rise of the Guardians,” have yet to make their qualifying runs in Los Angeles. 

    The Academy will announce the nominees Jan. 10. Animated fillms are eligible for nominations in other categories.

    With The Secret World of Arrietty ineligible, From Up on Poppy Hill from the same writer and the highest-grossing film in Japan last year should be a major contender.

    Brave is a lock for a nomination and will probably win, even with its subpar reviews and will displace Rango as the worst-reviewed film to ever win Animated Feature.

    Brave
    Frankenweenie
    The Rabbi’s Cat
    The Painting/Le tableau
    Wreck-It-Ralph

    From up on Poppy Hill might kick out The Painting.

    There’s a penguin in Madagascar correct?

    A film of the same seems to sneak in there every time.

    Brave
    Wreck-it-Ralph
    Poppy Hill (I loved Arrietty btw)
    ParaNorman
    Madagascar 3

    …and will displace Rango as the worst-reviewed film to ever win Animated Feature.

    Thank you for pointing that out. I thought I was the only one to find RANGO less then whelming.

    Yeah, I didn’t care much for “Rango” either, and I usually love spaghetti westerns.

    I don’t think “Brave” will win. “Wreck-It-Ralph” looks like will be a hit, and is the better film out of the two.

    That said, I think it would be possible that in a year with so many many lackluster mainstream fare, it’s possible an indie/art-house animation wins in a divided field. “Poppy Field” would really benefit from having “Wreck-It-Ralph”, “Brave”, “Ice Age” and “Paranorman” all nominated, for example.

    I really dont think what anybody thinks is the BEST film is necessarily going to win. Take a look at the winners and nominees.

    Besides, these are your opinions. Not facts, right?

    I haven’t seen A Cat in Paris, but of the remaining nominees Rango was my favorite. Puss in Boots shouldn’t have been nominated in the first place, Chico & Rita is an incredibly overrated film and Kung Fu Panda 2 was only enjoyable.

    I think for an “art-house” film to win, it would need incredible critical support and a somewhat weaker competition. A film like Persepolis could definitely win this category, if it’s not up against a giant Pixar film.

    This year I believe, The Rabbi’s Cat (a lock IMO. It will win the EFA for sure), Le Tableau and From Up on Poppy Hill are the most likely to be the “art-house” nominees. But if any of them has what it takes to win…. I don’t know.

    That would be great imo. So far, the animated film I most enjoyed and think is fabulous is The Secret World of Arrietty, by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, an adherent of the great visionary artist, Hayao Miyazaki, who collaborated with the sceenplay.

    I dont have anything against films like KFP or Cars or Ice Age. I watch all of them. And there should be room for films like this in the lineup. Still, I’d love to see truly worthy art dominate this category, at least once.

    Hum, all I’m saying is that since that mainstream options don’t seem have many passionate supporters, this might be a year where we have a surprise art-house or foreign winner. 

    But yeah, objectively speaking, I say it’s between “Wreck-It-Ralph” and “Brave”.

    My pick (5 movies, hopefully; three is too few):

    Brave
    Paranorman
    Frankenweenie
    Wreck-It Ralph (for the win)
    Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax (no guts, no glory pick)
