    Why some critics associations are putting Anomalisa in their top 10 list higher than Inside Out, sometimes they don’t even mention the latter, but they still giving their Best Animated Film Award to Inside Out.

    What is the logic here? Anomalisa doesn’t look animated enough? Should the Best Animated Film Award go to a children focus film? The sex and nude scenes?

    Inside Out is an intelligent written film, but Anomalisa is something else, I haven’t seen anything like that before, I think it will be a cult film, it’s like the next step for stop-motion.

    The CCA usually dont represent what critics find to be there favorite. If you look at Metacritics Top 10 list aggregator, it matches up to the CCA only when the critics favorite is the frontrunner or one of the frontrunners to win.

    Regardless of which film is more deserving, it is inconsistant to name one a top 10 film of the year and another film the best animated film of the year (as the latter is not an award for best animation). 

    It’s a problem with award groups having categories like this. Like when Taylor Swift win best female music video at the VMAs only to lose best music video to Beyonce.

    Maybe they don’t see Anomalisa as an Animated film in the same way they do with Inside Out. Typically, animated films have been made for younger audiences, and Anomalisa is completely the opposite. Its target audience is middle aged males.

    Also, it’s a way to honour 2 films that they like. It’s impossible for them to both win animated, so the other gets a spot on the top 10 list. Simple compensation strategy.
