    To celebrate the release of The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water today, I opened up the Best Animated Feature thread for the 2015 Academy Awards, my personal favourite category.

    This thread will chronicle the race for Best Animated Feature. As an animated film gets released, we will discuss it’s likelihood of it getting nominated, reviews, what we thought of the film, etc., basically anything you can think of, don’t be afraid to write about it here.

    Discuss.

    On paper,the ones that look like the best of the year are Inside Out,The Good Dinosaur, and The Little Prince. Those three are the ones I’m most excited for. Probably won’t see Spongebob honestly, but I would be quite surprised if it ended up being nominated.

    With The Lego Movie snub, I’m not sure Spongebob will make it with a Feb release and especially with the first not making it in either. But we shall see as the year rolls out

    Well, regardless, SpongeBob has been getting pretty decent reviews (or at least better reviews than Jupiter Ascending). I will most likely watch it because my older sister is a huge SpongeBob fan (you heard me right, OLDER sister) and I will likely watch it with her.

    Gosh, it’s going to be an all-out war between Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur. My money is on Inside Out right now but that could change once I see it.

    Suddenly, a new contender has emerged.

    Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet is from Roger Allers (The Lion King), Tomm Moore (Song of the Sea), Bill Plympton, and Academy Award-nominee Salma Hayek.

    Maybe Pixar DOESN’T have this race in the bag.

    I saw an advanced screening of Home on Sat. It was cute but I feel like it will be burried like the ok Mr. Peabody and Sherman in the march timeslot. Unless it is a weak year like 2013 was somewhat and it gets the benifit The Croods got (Still can’t get over that getting in over Monsters University), its chances are in the middle right now

    We have two original Pixar movies coming out this year. If their is a tie in this category and it’s between Inside Out and The Good Dinosuar. I’m going to be laughing my ass off.

    I’m still gonna see it (yes, even with Jennifer Lopez, my arch-nemesis, in it). It has Jim Parsons in it, and that’s reason enough for me, although his normal speaking voice coming out of a cute little alien is a bit distracting in the trailers. Still, I hope that this goes the way of Over the Hedge or Megamind as a comedy that is overall quite flawed, but still very enjoyable and funny as a whole, as opposed to Mr. Peabody & Sherman or Monsters vs. Aliens which were middle of the road, not overall awful but also not special in any way either. DreamWorks is very hit and miss.

    That would be hilarious. It would forever solidify any of the naysayers that Pixar is the king of modern-day feature film animation, plus it would make up for a year without Pixar.

    Home is almost like Mars Attack without all the murder and has tones of Super 8 and a few other alien movies that are clicking with a title at the moment. It’s a cute movie with great vocal performances.

    Sounds great! Can’t wait to see it. I’m probably gonna like it, but considering that this is DreamWorks, it’s not a guarantee. I do really hate Shrek 3, Shark Tale, Bee Movie and The Croods, so we will wait and see.

    Somehow I was sure The Prophet made it to last year entries but glad I was wrong!

    The nomination would be its win. Song of the Sea, A Cat in Paris, Ernest & Celestine, The Secret of Kells, The Illusionist, Chico & Rita, Persepolis, The Triplets of Belleville. None of these has been even close to take Oscar.
     
    This still is Pixar vs Pixar race.

    For a second, I read that as Mars Needs Moms and got very worried.

    I’ve seen The Prophet — I agree that animators will go for it and want it recognized but I don’t see the Academy at large wanting to reward it over something like Inside Out which I’m guessing would be the current frontrunner. 

    Slightly off-topic, I think Don Hertzfeldt’s “World of Tomorrow” is an early frontrunner to clinch Best Animated Short — it won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance out of all shorts screened (mostly live-action) and it also won a couple of awards at SXSW.
