Oscars 2016: Best Animated Feature

Recommended Posts

Sixteen films are up for this award (the ones I have seen are in bold):

  • “Anomalisa”
  • “The Boy and the Beast”
  • “Boy and the World”
  • “The Good Dinosaur”
  • “Home”
  • “Hotel Transylvania 2”
  • “Inside Out”
  • “Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet”
  • “The Laws of the Universe - Part 0”
  • “Minions”
  • “Moomins on the Riviera”
  • “The Peanuts Movie”
  • “Regular Show: The Movie”
  • “Shaun the Sheep Movie”
  • “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge out of Water”
  • “When Marnie Was There”

Mark Harris tweeted earlier today that, given the fact that 5 of these 16 films will be nominated for the Oscar, each film has something like an over-30-percent chance of being nominated in this category -- which is way, way higher than the odds of an eligible film being nominated in any of the Academy's other categories. Make of that what you will.

Every film with at least three Annie nominations is on the list of eligible Oscar nominees (and so are SpongeBob, which has two Annie nominations, and The Boy and the Beast, which has one). The Annie Awards did *not* hand out any nominations for Oscar contenders The Laws of the Universe - Part 0, Moomims on the Riviera or Regular Show: The Movie.

The Annie Award winners will be announced February 6.

It bums me out that there doesn't seem to be any way to add polls to existing threads in the current version of the board, but oh well.

The nominees for the Oscar are (with the ones I've seen in bold):

  • Anomalisa
  • Boy and the World
  • Inside Out
  • Shaun the Sheep Movie
  • When Marnie Was There

Note: Inside Out is the only American computer-animated kids' movie on the list. Anomalisa is stop-motion and R-rated (the first film with that rating to be nominated for this award, I believe). Shaun the Sheep is also stop-motion, and British. And Boy and the World (from Brazil) and When Marnie Was There (from Japan) both use traditional hand-drawn animation.

In other words, no Minions, no Home, no Hotel Transylvania 2... and no The Peanuts Movie, which I wouldn't have minded. But I really can't complain about the choices here. In a year when, once again, people are complaining about the lack of "diversity" among Oscar nominees, the animation branch has done the Academy proud.

The Motion Picture Sound Editors has announced the nominees for the Golden Reel Award in this category:

BEST SOUND EDITING: SOUND EFFECTS, FOLEY, DIALOGUE & ADR IN AN ANIMATION FEATURE FILM
Anomalisa, Aaron Glacock and Christopher S. Aud, MPSE
Hotel Transylvania 2, Geoffrey Rubay
Inside Out, Shannon Mills and Ren Klyce
Minions, Dennis Leonard
Shaun The Sheep Movie, Anthony Bayman and Adrian Rhodes
The Good Dinosaur, Shannon Mills
The Peanuts Movie, Gwendolyn Yates Whittle, MPSE and Randy Thom

So there is only a three-movie overlap between the Oscar and the Golden Reel Award in this category (basically, the Golden Reel Award did not nominate the Brazilian or Japanese film; all of their nominees are American except for Shaun the Sheep Movie, which is British).

The winner will be announced February 27.

And the winners are... Inside Out, which won everything except Animated Effects (The Good Dinosaur), Best Animated Independent Feature (Boy and the World) and Best Animated Special Production (He Named Me Malala).

Two of those films -- Boy and the World and Inside Out -- are up for the Oscar.

Forgot to note this earlier, but better late than never: The winner was... Inside Out.
