    “Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse”
    Directors: Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, Rodney Rothman
    Writers: Phil Lord, Rodney Rothman
    Release date: December 14th, 2018
    Trailer: https://youtu.be/tg52up16eq0

    Reviews are starting to come in. Some critics are saying this is in their Top 10 films of the year. Most saying it’s one of the best Spider-Man film adaptations. A few saying it has the best chance to upset Disney’s winning streak.

    Obviously The LEGO Movie (also written by Phil Lord) thought it had a shot before its shocking snub. But the buzz that hit online last night for this is huge

    I would love for this award to go to someone other than Disney/Pixar for once, and the animation in the trailers actually has a unique style, innovation in animation is SUPPOSED to be what having a separate category for it is all about. I’m pulling for it.

    If any non-Disney/Pixar film wins this year, it will be ISLE OF DOGS. Not only is the craftsmanship impeccable, but Wes Anderson already has 6 Oscar nominations to his credit and is well thought of among Academy members–especially the actors’ branch.

    I hope SM:ItSV is a good film, but I don’t see any way it beats out *another* superhero film in that category. Regardless of what you think of their relative merits, SPIDEY, RALPH, and INCREDIBLES 2 are all sequels or franchise films (which have never taken this award outside of TOY STORY 3), while ISLE is unmistakably original. It is the legitimate threat.

    I am all for Isle of Dogs to win. Wes Anderson is LONG overdue. I just don’t see much love for it either critically or financially. While this category is supposed to be based on art & merit, it favors blockbusters. Most wins deserved it (probably not Brave), but it’s been a long time since they embraced a smaller film

    eh, 82 MC is kinda disappointing to me considering some of the early hype tweets called it beyond best of the year. I don’t see it winning.

    None of the animated contenders have a great MC score

    Isle of Dogs: 82
    Spider-Man: 82
    Incredibles 2: 80
    Ralph Breaks the Internet: 71
    Teen Titans Go to the Movies: 69
    The Grinch: 51

    Into the Spider-Verse is in an interesting place. They tend not to go for animated films based on established properties (The Simpsons Movie, The Peanuts Movie) but it is getting strong praise.

    Though people need to remember these four important words.

    “Never bet against Pixar”

    I'm not perfect, but I keep trying.

    No one expected “best animated film” would be this competitive.

    Can’t wait to watch it!

    Heard really good things about it and cannot wait to see it. But the problem with this is that it’s still got the tag of marvel and superhero attached to it so there could be academy voters who just write it off without even seeing it and just refuse to vote for it… And with Disney/Pixar’s past track record, you would wonder if the Academy still remembers other animation companies…

    Don’t forget Mirai, also at 82, albeit with only 7 reviews so far.

    Isle of Dogs: 82
    Spider-Man: 82
    Mirai: 82
    Incredibles 2: 80
    Ralph Breaks the Internet: 71

    After raising tons of eyebrows by nominating The Boss Baby (only 50 on Metacritic) and Ferdinand (58 on Metacritic) last year, it surprises me how the 5 most acclaimed animated films in contention are currently the 5 most likely to actually be nominated by the Oscars for Animated Feature. Talk about #OscarsRedemption!

    Some of my favorite reviewers have stated this is the best Spiderman film yet. I am excited to see this.

    If this movie were to win Animated Feature at the Oscars it would serve as a fitting tribute to the cinematic legacy of Spider-Man’s late creator Stan Lee.

    I didn’t even think of Stan Lee. He’s easily getting this movie to a win.

    That would be amazing but the Oscars’ prejudice towards superhero films which this animation still has a tag of, and the Oscars’ love for Disney Pixar, still throws in uncertainty of this race.
