    The way I see it The Jungle Book could be eligible for Best Animated Feature as the rules of the Academy states that:
    “An animated feature film is defined as a motion picture with a running time of more than 40 minutes, in which movement and characters’ performances are created using a frame-by-frame technique. Motion capture by itself is not an animation technique. In addition, a significant number of the major characters must be animated, and animation must figure in no less than 75 percent of the picture’s running time.”

    With Mowgli being the only non-animated character (with small exceptions in one or two scenes) I would think that the film would live up to these regulations. Can anyone see a reason why The Jungle Book should not be eligible for the animation category? and could eligibility in this category hurt it’s chances in the VFX category?

    I think that even if it were eligible, which I would wager is very debatable, Disney would not push it in the slightest. They have two animated features this year, with Zootopia and Moana, the former of which should be a lock for a nomination and the latter has a prime release date if it is well-received. The Jungle Book should be a VFX lock if correctly campaigned, because that is the greatest achievement of the film

    The branch would never accept it.
