The Oscars are coming and that means we’ll need to start talking about nominees, but before that we have to discuss the submitted films to be nominated. At least for animated films we need to. There have been 20 submitted, 8 of which have not even been released yet.
Looking at the list it’s incredibly hard to know who will win. There’s a ton of great films on here, but no front runner. Big Hero 6 might be the one to take it, but it isn’t as praised as Frozen. The LEGO Movie could nab it as almost everyone loved it, but will the Academy award something named after a toy? Maybe this is the year for Studio Ghibli to grab one? They keep getting blocked out by Disney and Pixar, but Princess Kaguya has been getting a lot of praise. Maybe a surprise upset for something like The Boxtrolls?
Interesting to see some actual competition in the field this year. Full list below.
