    The Oscars didn’t put it into Best Picture because there was no need to do so since Pete Docter and Jonas Rivera were recipients of Animated Feature. There was no need to make Rivera the recipient of BP if he already was nominated here. They have become so biased against animation that they basically didn’t want any other films to get nominated for BP ever again.

    But hey, that’s just a theory!

    “Inside Out” would be more deserving of Best Picture nod than previous Pixar showings that ultimately got it. I’m just happy it got nominated for its screenplay and I was prepared for Best Picture snub from the majority of precursors.

    Except that didn’t stop them from nominating TOY STORY 3 and UP for the top prize under the same circumstances, so No, that argument really doesn’t hold much credence.

    They’re just a bunch of fuckheads. Easily one of the top five best films of the year and would’ve made a very worthy best picture nominee. I’d even take it as a BP winner!

    Has there been any Pixar movie that was released as early as Inside Out did that got into BP?

    I sincerely believe it was because of timing. “The Revenant” is having a surge of momentum because of the perfect timing. I bet Pixar thought “The Good Dinosaur” was the Oscar contender and not “Inside Out”.

    Up was released in May, the same month as Inside Out, and got the same number on RT and less box office by $100 million worldwide and STILL got in. So yes, a Pixar film did make it after being released that early. And I would argue that they would remember Inside Out more than Up because of the movie’s ingenious premise. The mind boggles.

    I have trouble believing that any animated film can get in if this couldn’t. The only chance is obviously playing it like any other Oscar film. Open at TIFF, get a December release date, then mount a legitimate Best Picture campaign. Obviously, they suffer in precursors though, because they’ll never get acting nominations. I expect we will never actually see an Animated BP winner. It’s just too stacked against them.

    Inside Out really underperformed – not only did it not make it into Best Picture (which was expected after PGA snubbed it after having nominated Up and Toy Story 3 under the same system) but it didn’t even get the categories that almost every truly acclaimed Pixar film got before it, such as Score and Sound Editing. The latter especially was a huge miss historically. I can’t help wondering – with both its real-life and psychological protagonists being female, this is the first truly female-centered Pixar film to get this level of acclaim. Did the largely male-oriented tech-branches have an unconscious bias against it? It’s hard to say.

    They should have released it on the awards season.

    The 2010 and 2011 oscars had 10 best picture nominees compared to only 8
    nominees for 2016. That’s the reason why Up and Toy Story 3 were
    able to receive a nomination. If the academy nominated 10 films this
    year, Inside Out would probably receive the nomination along with Carol.

    ^ Doubt it. Up and Toy Story 3 had PGA nominations and Inside Out did not, even with Ex Machina and Straight Outta Compton in the lineup. And Inside Out missed the tech noms that Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, WALL-E, Up and Toy Story 3 all got.

    Funny thing is, Disney’s campaigns for Inside Out showed the FYC for BEST PICTURE, and there was no mention of BEST ANIMATED FEATURE. Oh well.

    They didn’t campaign hard enough on this film. Remember, voters need to be reminded of these things with big events and larger-than-life reasons to vote for these films. Disney should have marketed Inside Out in a way that made voters remember why they loved the film.

    Wouldn’t it be something if the film wins Best Original Screenplay though?

    I’m thinking there campaign must have focused more on Bridge of Spies and Star Wars. Such a shame because Inside Out was truly one of a kind. Bridge of Spies will be forgotten in a few months, but Inside Out will live on.

    Don’t count on it. That award is Spotlight’s, although it would be flipping amazing if it won.
