I wonder if this will be a year in which the winner of the Academy Award wins NONE of the three major critic awards.
That is, NYFCC, National Board, and LAFCA.
It’s happened before. With Toy Story 4 and Big Hero 6 I guess.December 2, 2022 at 10:11 pm #1205176463

Rotoscoping techniques have been commonplace in animation since before Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Loving Vincent and I Lost My Body are two recent animated features that used rotoscoping and they were both nominated.
The Academy seems to have a problem with Linklater’s rotoscoping movies. Heck, they passed on Waking Life in favor of Jimmy Neutron of all things.December 3, 2022 at 9:57 am #1205176829
Watched “Apollo 10 1/2” just now and while it’s a beautiful film, I don’t really find this an Oscars contender. A personal love letter to the director’s own childhood with a Linklater loosely-structured plot just doesn’t feel like a typical Ocscars nominee to me.

After watching Wendell and Wild I had taken it off my list because it wasn’t very good, but now that Strange World is completely bombing, I think it’ll get in. So I feel like we have a fairly solid four:
- Turning Red
- The Bad Guys
- Wendell & Wild
With the fifth slot between Marcel the Shell (only this low because the animation branch tends to hate live action in their animated films), and Strange World/Lightyear getting in by Disney name recognition alone.
Apollo 10 1/2 has <1% chance of getting in due to the rotoscope bias, and Inu-Oh has <1% chance of getting in due to the anime bias. As someone who loves anime, I have heard no chatter whatsoever about Inu-Oh outside of the one guy in this thread. Is it really GKIDS top horse this season? I’d almost want them to try to support Pompo the Cinephile for a nomination because that might actually have a shot of overcoming the anime bias due to it being about Hollywood and movie making.December 4, 2022 at 12:13 pm #1205177705
Pompo was submitted last year.December 4, 2022 at 8:24 pm #1205178160

Apollo 10½ came out in April, so as much as I adore the film I recognize that it needs a decent critics push to have a chance at being nominated.
That will be difficult to achieve as I suspect that Marcel the Shell and Pinocchio are going to take the bulk of the critics prizes.December 5, 2022 at 4:05 pm #1205179338

Don’t underestimate the Disney-favoritism in these types of awards. Onward and Raya weren’t hits and both still got nominated.December 5, 2022 at 6:22 pm #1205179446
I think this might be all the movies that were submitted for the Animated Feature Oscar.
26 different animated movies submitted.December 5, 2022 at 6:43 pm #1205179460
I know this is unrelated to the 2023 oscars but i’ll say it anyway: the fact that Satoshi Kon never won an oscar for Best Animated Feature is a CRIME.
Anyways, what are the chances of Inu-Oh getting in? Yuasa Masaaki is long overdue.December 5, 2022 at 6:57 pm #1205179474

I wouldn’t say it’s likely.
If we’re still talking about anime, it looks like Suzume by Makoto Shinkai won’t be ready for the Oscars. Hasn’t been released yet.December 5, 2022 at 7:28 pm #1205179513

Makato Shinkai failed to get a nom for his magnum opus Your Name back in 2016, so it’s almost obvious he won’t be nominated for this one either even if it was released within eligibility period. Feeling sad for Inu-Oh tho.December 5, 2022 at 11:18 pm #1205179721

Blame Funimation for that one: they were in charge of its Oscar campaign.
Oh man, DO NOT get me started on how Funimation failed to get Your Name. into Best Animated Feature 2016 categories, not just at the Oscars, but in most of the regional critics groups following its MASSIVE LAFCA victory.
Help me manifest this Best Original Song category at the 95th Oscars!:
(contenders as of end of November)
"Dragon Commander" (Inu-oh)
"Good Tonight" (The Bad Guys)
"Hold My Hand" (Top Gun: Maverick)
"Lucky Ducks" (The Bob's Burgers Movie)
"Naatu Naatu" (RRR: Rise, Roar, Revolt)Not now
