Discuss one of my favorite animated films.
Do you think it deserved more nominations? I certainly did.
Coulais’ score for one is delicious and should’ve been nom’d (over a couple of bland selections).
Love it/hate it?
I know I’m probably in the minority, but I was rooting for Coraline to win Best Animated Feature that year. I think Up is one of the most overrated movies in recent years and I am a big fan of Pixar.
And yes, I love the score!
I know of some people who were put off by the dark tone of the movie and initial bratty personality of the main character, but I personally was enchanted by the film and loved its production design/art direction. I also prefer stop-motion animation to computer animation. But it was never going to garner numerous nominations or be a big winner at the Oscars because it was up against, well, “Up” as well as “Avatar.”
