    Two other Pixar pictures — “Up” (2009) and “Toy Story 3” (2010) — have contended for the top prize. But those were both in years with a guaranteed 10 nominees. 

    We don’t know yet if the academy will stick with the variable range that it has used since 2011. What do you make of the chances for “Inside Out” if the Oscars do go again with this sliding scale for Best Picture?

    In a sliding scale year, I imagine Up & Toy Story 3 would have still both made it in. 

    I think Inside Out will make it in. Huge acclaim, huge box office, virtually ‘guaranteed’ Animated Feature nod (possible win). If the other films in contention aren’t as strong, then the screenplay could get in. Who knows, even Director – an animated film has to be nominated for that soon, right?

    In terms of the films that have been seen so far, I think only Carol has a stronger shot at getting into the line-up right now. Obviously loads have yet to be seen. But once you account for the odds of how many are being built up, and the proportion that will be knocked back by reviews, Inside Out should be safe to make it in, I imagine.

    I’m not sure about it. I mean after “Up” and “Toy Story 3”, they pretty much stopped caring about animation in the main category. I mean don’t tell me that “Frozen” wasn’t deserving for example…

    Frozen wasn’t…It was an entertaining movie, but it didn’t have many layers to its storytelling compared to Pixar movies like Up, Wall-E and Toy Story.

    Toy Story 3 was the last animated film which transcended the typical audience and success of animations, and caught the imaginations of people who watched it and voted for it, hence why it got in. Frozen was huge, but grown ups who watched it weren’t quite as gun-ho as they were for Up or Toy Story 3. Frozen was not worthy of a Best Picture nomination. Inside Out is looking like it might transcend the boundaries it’s two BP nominated predecessors did. Up and Toy Story 3 were on multiple people’s end of year lists. From what I recall, Frozen was not to the same extent.

    Obviously it’s early, but right now I would seriously consider the film for the following categories: 

    Best Picture
    Best Director
    Best Original Screenplay
    Best Actress- Amy Poehler
    Best Supporting Actress- Phyllis Smith
    Best Supporting Actor- Richard Kind 
    Best Sound Editing
    Best Sound Mixing
    Best Original Score
    Best Editing

    I know the acting categories will never go for it, but there it is anyway. I would be thrilled if SAG proved me wrong and actually gave this a richly deserved nomination for Best Ensemble Cast.

    Well I disagree a lot. WALL-E was terribly mediocre. Toy Story 3 was okay. And Up was good, but so did Frozen.

    I am 100% sure it will deserve it. I’m 80% sure it will happen.

    It’s certainly the strongest contender released yet, and I think it can be good for a film of that success and acclaim to stake their claim for a Picture nomination early in the vein of The Grand Budapest Hotel, Beasts of the Southern Wild, The Tree of Life or The Help.

    It certainly deserves it, and I think unless this is an abnormally strong year, it can get the nomination.

    No. Up, Toy Story 3, Wall-E, Inside Out are just tear jerkers.

    First of all, Frozen should’ve been nominated for best picture and Kristen Bell for best actress.  It had identifiable characters, a terrific story and was 1000% less a cluster*vck Inside Out is.  For its length issues, I still say Avengers: Age of Ultron should get in BP as well as Star Wars: The Force Awakens (if it’s great with critics and fans).  Why is Inside Out so successful?  I’d even put Ex Machina ahead of it.

    Oof. The Pixar haters have really started coming out of the woodwork. Either that or they work for Dreamworks. Lol

    It definitely deserves it, and I imagine that Inside Out will make it in too. Not sure if it will be a strong or weak year until the autumn, but if it’s particularly weak, then I think it could make it, but don’t be surprised if it gets snubbed, it looks like a prime example of a snub. 

    Inside Out has the critical approval and strong box office to make it look like a formidable foe.

    It helps that Inside Out appeals to adults more than kids.

    I have a question about Lava the short film before Inside Out.
    Would the song Lava be eligible for original song or does a song have to come from a feature to qualify?
