“Fantastic Mr. Fox” was nominated for 2 Oscars (Animated Feature, Original Score). It was also nominated for Best Animated Feature at the Globes, BAFTA, and Critics Choice awards. The Critics Choice awards was the ONLY major awards venue which nominated it for Best Adapted Screenplay.
Critical-wise, it was highly acclaimed. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 93% approval rating, with a 7.9/10 critical mean. Metacritic rated it with an 83/100. The Broadcast Film critics association gave it a 91/100 rating.
“The Isle of Dogs” on other hand:
Broadcast Film Critics rating – 89/100
Metacritic – 81/100
Rotten Tomatoes – 93% approval rating, 8.1/10 critical mean
The reviews have been identical.
Will the film get more, less, or the same amount of Oscar nominations as Fantastic Mr. Fox? Do we see it getting any Best Picture or Best Original Screenplay nomination?March 24, 2018 at 2:03 pm #1202518605
I think it’ll be about the same.March 25, 2018 at 2:12 pm #1202518863
How much Oscar attention can an animated film get in this day and age? Answer not very much.
I am sure that Isle of Dogs will be really good. I love me some Wes Anderson films but this will NOT crack Best Picture or very many other categories because the Oscars has a hate-boner for animated films since a long time ago and it will probably just be relegated to Animated Feature and maybe Score.

Having seen Isle of Dogs, it’s easily getting nominated for Animated Feature and Original Score (Desplat being nominated the year after winning is a no-brainer. Plus, it’s great work). Original Screenplay is unclear since it’s still so early, but it isn’t out of the question (I personally think it’ll end up being nominated ¯\_(ツ)_/¯).
Other than those three, I doubt it’ll show up anywhere else, BP included.March 29, 2018 at 1:28 pm #1202521251
It is an indisputable lock for animated feature and its score is spectacular and should be a lock there too. I think that the original screenplay category should reward such a unique and inventive story and script like this that will unfortunately probably not get a BP nom so Original screenplay is a strong possibility but we’ll have to see (I really hope so) also is production design a possibility or way too far out?March 29, 2018 at 4:05 pm #1202521331
If you want a cynical answer it’ll probably just get relegated to the Animated Feature and Original Score categories and lose both because Disney will buy out the former (the only way Incredibles 2 and Wreck it Ralph 2 both lose is if their respective directors ended up in sexual misconduct scandals), and the voters will buckle to pressure due to people whining about the lack of subtitles or something.

I love this movie. I’m not big on animated movies beyond the ones I grew up with. Not at all a Pixar / Shrek franchise adult.
