Recommended Posts

The qualifying films (with the ones I've seen in bold):

  • “The Big Bad Fox & Other Tales”
  • “Birdboy: The Forgotten Children”
  • “The Boss Baby”
  • “The Breadwinner”
  • “Captain Underpants The First Epic Movie”
  • “Cars 3”
  • “Cinderella the Cat”
  • “Coco”
  • “Despicable Me 3”
  • “The Emoji Movie”
  • “Ethel & Ernest”
  • “Ferdinand”
  • “The Girl without Hands”
  • “In This Corner of the World”
  • “The Lego Batman Movie”
  • “The Lego Ninjago Movie”
  • “Loving Vincent”
  • “Mary and the Witch’s Flower”
  • “Moomins and the Winter Wonderland”
  • “My Entire High School Sinking into the Sea”
  • “Napping Princess”
  • “A Silent Voice”
  • “Smurfs: The Lost Village”
  • “The Star”
  • “Sword Art Online: The Movie - Ordinal Scale”
  • “Window Horses The Poetic Persian Epiphany of Rosie Ming”

This year marks the first time that the nominees in this category will be chosen by the *entire* Academy, rather than the animation branch. This means the category will probably be deeply compromised this year, because when it comes to animation, the average Academy member is a moron who is only interested in stuff that grosses hundreds of millions of dollars -- if it's popular, it must be good, right? and if they haven't seen it for themselves already, then it probably wasn't worth seeing to begin with, right?

To put this another way: in previous years, I would have thought that Loving Vincent was a lock for a nomination in this category. This year, however, I'm not so sure.
