    While there years where we get a strong lineup, there’s definitely a few noticeable stinkers to get nominated in Animated Feature. What’s the worst film to ever there?

    My choice is Shark Tale. It really says something that even as a kid I didn’t like this film. In terms of narrative and humor it’s an absolute mess, and that doesn’t even cover it’s many horrible examples of the uncanny valley. What makes it nomination especially bad is that not only was it up against acclaimed classic The Incredibles and Shrek 2, but it got nominated over The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie and The Polar Express, two films that are classics in their own right.I know the latter also has its complaints of uncanny valley, but compared to Shark Tale, it’s animation is spectacular.

    Ralph Breaks the Internet was an absolute mess.

    I rarely dislike an animated film. The only ones I didn’t care for are The Croods, When Marnie Was There and Ralph Breaks The Internet.

    Boss Baby is the most infamous one, but I remember The Croods being pretty bad too. It’s been so long since I’ve seen earlier nominees like Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron or Brother Bear but I remember not being too impressed by those either.

    The winner I personally like the least is Rango, though I understand it was a weak field (and that my personal favorite, Chico & Rita, probably wouldn’t be widely seen). I like a lot about Brave but I don’t think it should have won over ParaNorman or Wreck-It Ralph.

    The Triplets of Belleville bores me after 30 mins of viewing. I thought it was odd kind of animation.

    Either Boss Baby, Surf’s Up or Shark Tale. Those films are just stupid.

    I might be in the minority on this one: but I’ve always disliked Happy Feet. The story is pretty simple and dull until the “protect the environment” message comes absolutely out of nowhere and derails it. Also, the animation has not aged well at all.

    The only thing I remember about Surf’s Up is that it was really dull.

    Shark Tale is at least bad in an entertaining way, but still bad.

    I’d say Happy Feet is fuller than Surf’s Up which I remember having some decent jokes and the cameraman gimmick helps it stand out a bit from the other animated talking animal comedies.

    I’m fine with Happy Feet winning the Oscar since it went to George Miller, and it’s competition wasn’t anything to write him about.

    The Boss Baby, easily. Alec Baldwin is the film’s only saving grace. Other than that, it’s just awful. What Oscar voters saw in it that critics did not baffles me to this day, especially given that it was nominated over much better films like The Lego Batman Movie.

    That is the general idea, yes.

    It’s deliberately odd. You obviously didn’t get it, because when I saw it, I thought it was hysterical. That’s just my opinion, though.
