    The category for Best Animated Feature at the Academy Awards was only introduced at the 74th Academy Awards, for films released in 2001.

    I noticed that 1998 would have been an incredibly competitive year for the category, had it been around then. American movies like Antz, A Bug’s Life, Mulan, The Prince of Egypt and Quest for Camelot were all released that year, Kirikou and the Sorceress was released internationally that year, and may have vied for a qualifying USA release, and other films released the year prior that may have still been eligible with a 1998 theatrical release included Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion, Perfect Blue, and Princess Mononoke. For the record, none of these 3 films were actually released in the USA until 1999 at the earliest.

    Which movies do you think would have been nominated for 1998, and which one do you think would have won?

    Wanted to vote Prince of Egypt but misclicked Mononoke. Well, pretty sure that’s gonna win either way, so it won’t matter

    FYC:

    Lead Actor: Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round)

    Supporting Actress: Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm)

    Supporting Actor: Paul Raci (Sound of Metal)

    Wow this is so good. Of all of these the best is Princess Mononoke and End of Eva, though the latter is so context dependant.

    I think The Prince of Egypt would win – its a handsomely made epic and the best adaptation of Exodus. Antz’ Woody Allen connection could’ve also won.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best Picture: Wolfwalkers

    Best Animated Feature: Wolfwalkers

    Torn between Mulan and Prince of Egypt, ultimately chose Mulan. Disney would’ve been a juggernaut around that time.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    For me it’s:

    1. Antz
    2. Mulan
    3. Prince of Egypt
    4. Kirikou
    5. A Bug’s Life

    And the Japanese offerings should go in different years. Although I find Neon Genesis Evangelion very overrated anyway.

    But in terms of what would have won, probably Mulan?

    Mulan has become a bit of an underrated fan favorite in the years since it came out (underrated as much as a disney movie can be) but it looks like there was some perception at the time that it was a bit of a down period for the disney renessaince films.

    I think it would’ve been the prince of egypt. It has the “prestige” biblical soars and sandals epic angle, plus the big hit song

    A Bug’s Life, obviously on the back of Toy Story acclaim.

    Prince of Egypt.

    It got two nominations to Mulan’s one and won Original Song, so I think it would have taken that momentum to an Animated win.

    It also had that Oscar-friendly December release date.
