    I am a huge animated movie lover. I believe there are plenty of animated movies that should have been nominated for best picture. I think some would have been nominated if the category was ten nominees. Such as the Pixar films, or Miyazaki movies. What are your thoughts? I am sorry if any animated films didn’t make the cut.

    If there were exactly 10 BP noms each year, then ALL on your list would’ve been a BP nominee, minus Shrek 2.

    Really, all of them save Shrek 2, and maybe Spirited Away, should have been nominated. If forced to pick one, I go with The Incredibles or The Lion King (the latter was the first film I ever saw, and it remains one of my top 10 favorite films).

    There are some terrific films up there (Spirited Away, Wall-E, The Incredibles, Toy Story 2), and I also really liked The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Each one of those films is probably better than at least one BP nominee from its year.

    If forced to choose only one, I say ‘Ratatouille’. 2007 was a pretty damn incredible year for film and contained many films of various genres that I loved (Examples: ‘Sweeney Todd’, ‘Juno’, ‘No Country For Old Men’, ‘There Will Be Blood’, ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’, ’28 Weeks Later’, ‘Atonement’, etc.) and even with all of those amazing films in one year, ‘Ratatouille’ was absolutely my personal favorite film of that year. It’s also my favorite Pixar film and I consider it a modern day masterpiece.

    Others I’d strongly consider:

    ‘The Incredibles’ 
    ‘WALL-E’
    ‘Spirited Away’
    ‘Finding Nemo’     
    ‘The Lion King’

    ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’ is a great mention. It (along with ‘Up’) was in my personal Top 5 of 2009.

    Spirited Away no question. It’s magic, seriously.

    Definitely all of them, maybe with the exception of the Shrek films and the Incredibles. (Who should be cutting Marvel comics and Linda Hunt a check from how much material they took from them.) Ratatouille and Wall-E were miles better than the crap that was up for BP their years. (Same story for Toy Story 3) Finding Nemo and the underrated Bugs Life deserved it too.

    The three that jump out at me are Toy Story (especially in a year when Babe got nominated for Best Picture), The Lion King (the highest-grossing animated film ever released at the time, and a few years after the first animated BP nominee Beauty and the Beast, and in a year when Four Weddings and a Funeral was nominated for Best Picture), and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (however, this was snubbed in a year when there were 10 nominees).

    Mind you, like many have said, there are quite a few that would or should have been nominated had there always been a large number of nominees:

    Should have (but weren’t in years with 10 nominees): Snow White, Fantasia, Pinocchio, Bambi
    Would have: The Lion King, Toy Story, Shrek, Finding Nemo, WALL-E
    Could have: Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, 101 Dalmatians, The Jungle Book, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Toy Story 2, The Incredibles, Ratatouille
    Unlikely: Chicken Run, Spirited Away, Monsters Inc., Shrek 2, Wallace & Gromit, Cars, Happy Feet

    It’s hard to say when momentum for animated films was high enough top make the top ten for nominations. Several classic films were looked over in years when there were 10 nominees, but since Beauty and the Beast‘s nomination, there definitely were a few years where animated movies would have been BP nominees if there were 10.

    I wonder what the first animated Best Picture nominee would have been if there had always been 10 nominations…

    Definitely Wall-E. I wanted it to break into the 5 BP nominees SO bad.
