    With the recent announcement that Frozen has become the highest grossing animated film of all time, it got me thinking. Up and Toy Story 3 both got Best Picture nominations. It’s clear that Pixar has lowered their standards recently, so when will another animated film be nominated for the coveted Best Picture Oscar? And did Frozen come closer than we think?

    What do you think about this?

    I think that Pixar’s Inside Out to be released in 2015, if it turns out to be as good as the original premise suggests, could very well do it again.

    I think that it has to be Pixar, and it will be one of the 2 2015 releases. I also predict that it will be Inside Out, but it does come out earlier in the year. Finding Dory will also have a shot, if it’s as good as Finding Nemo. I don’t think it will be as good, but it will likely still be alright.

    The Lego Movie should be nominated, it may not be as good as Up or Toy Story 3 but why do animated pictures have to be Universally Acclaimed to get a shot on BP? There are many animated pictures that are better than most nominated films, it’s a little unfair in my opinion.

    TLM received critical acclaim (more than Frozen) and animated movies don’t need to be from Disney to be nominated.

    That is actually a really good point.

    Up should have won Best Picture by ten miles imo

    Up is really good; there are some brilliantly executed parts to that film.  And the two main characters are great, making for a fantastic buddy film.  I was not a fan of the dogs at all…they were cringeworthy.  I see a lot of value in the live action films that year, i.e. Hurt Locker for its direction, so I would not be for an animated film winning.  But I wonder if there are other cases that might be more convincing for me…hmmm  Lion King certainly should have been nominated.  Maybe 1-2 of the Miyazaki movies, and certainly Grave of the Fireflies.

    I think other studios have stepped up their game so it isn’t just Pixar
    putting out quality movies.And because of the increase in quality from
    other stuidos the likelihood of animated best picture nominees has risen. I think will see the next nominee within a few years. Also I do not believe Frozen was close to garnering a nomination.

    Any box office record that does not take inflation into account is void.

    Up and Toy Story 2 got nominated, but the Academy changed its rules since then. A film needs to be either voted as the best(or the second behind a film that has enough votes) by a certain percentage of voters(10, which is over 300 voters). That makes it harder for animated films and genre movies to be nominated. So, I doubt any more animated films will be nominated unless they change the rules again.

    Out of the 3 that were nominated for Best Picture, Beauty & the Beast and Up should have won (though Silence of the Lambs is a worthy winner and Toy Story 3 was in my Top 10 that year #4 to specific.)

    Animated Films that should have been nominated for Best Picture:
    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
    Pinocchio
    Fantasia
    The Lion King
    Wall-E

    As long as The LEGO Movie isn’t the first too win Best Picture I’ll be happy. (It’s a pretty good & funny movie but nothing awards worthy.)

    Toy Story 3, not Toy Story 2, bud.
