    Isle of Dogs. I saw it when it came out eight months ago, and it’s still one of my favorite films of the year. Personally, I’m very surprised it’s not getting more Oscar buzz. Not only is it a feat of animation (there’s a video currently making the rounds about how a certain 60 second scene took eight months to film), but it’s an absolutely wonderful movie. I’ve seen it on a few critics “Best Of the Year” lists as well.

    Why do you think it’s not getting more buzz? What do you think of the film? Do you think there’s a chance it could get a Best Original Screenplay, Best Original Score (Desplat’s work is masterful and really drove the film), or even a Best Picture nomination?

    I would love to hear your thoughts. Please sound away!

    There’s probably a few reasons. Some quick thoughts:

    – General (growing) fatigue with Anderson’s aesthetics.

    – Lingering controversy stemming from the subject matter and its presentation.

    – Unspoken feelings about Isle of Dogs not living up to the reputation of Fantastic Mr. Fox.

    Again, just some thoughts.

    There is a thread for this movie that already exists FYI. Then again, this is still by far my favorite film of 2018, so I am not one to complain about excessive threads for this film.

    Note to myself: Don’t ever feed the trolls. Don’t get involved in others drama. Don’t let myself be swayed by others predictions, trust my gut more often!

    Note to all others: If you don’t happen to like me, ignore me. It is that simple.

    @FairWeatherThoughts Interesting. Thank you.

    @Diet Teridax Oh sorry! Didn’t know that… Glad to see a fellow Isle of Dogs fan!

    Dogs is the superior movie.

    Based on what?

    Isle of Dogs and Fantastic Mr. Fox drew roughly the same critical ratings so not sure how the former failed to live up to the latter especially when pulling a better box office reward.

    I think Isle of Dogs will actually win the Globe for Score. If it does that then that will be a solid precedent set for the Oscars to follow suit in rewarding Desplat with consecutive wins, since like the Oscars the Globes awarded him last year for The Shape of Water.

    I seriously want this movie to win ALL the Oscars, but I know I have to be realistic, as much of a dream come true as seeing an Original Screenplay or better yet a Best Picture nomination would be for me. Realistically, I’ve got this masterpiece only getting 3 nominations from the Academy, for Animated Feature, Music Score, and at 100/1 odds for Production Design. I know it got shortlisted for Visual Effects but I think the other animated film to make the Top 20 Incredibles 2 is far more likely to make the cut.

    Also, is there really not an official thread yet for this great film? If that is the case, then that is a Travesty with a capital T!

    @Diet Teridax You pretty much summed up all my thoughts about it! I was very happy to see Desplat got a much-deserved Golden Globes nod. That boosts my hope that the Oscars will nominate him as well.

    Currently, I have Isle of Dogs pegged as my wild card pick for Best Original Screenplay. Maybe that’s just wishful thinking on my part, but I hope not…. I guess we’ll see soon enough!

    Actually, the only 2 times an animated film was nominated for Best VFX, they were both stop-motion films. Even when WALL-E got nominations in more categories than any other animated film (6), it couldn’t score one there. I’d say ISLE OF DOGS is far more likely to get an effects nod than the Pixar film.

    I was really just brainstorming, which is why I didn’t provide evidence for anything. It’s hard to deny, though, that it doesn’t (and won’t ever) have the reputation Fantastic Mr. Fox has.

    @Eden That’s the one I saw as well! It’s pretty amazing. Sure gives you an even deeper appreciation and respect for stop motion animation!
