Some observations.

First everyone bitching about Wonder Woman not getting nominated are idiots since the only way a superhero film will ever get nominated is if they make it so "high brow" and "smart" that its barely recognizable as a superhero film (ie the Chris Nolan Batman films). The amount of money that a movie brings in has nothing to do with getting a nomination, if that had any bearing Michael Bay would have about a dozen Oscars by now.

Second looking at the animation nominations is really god damn depressing. It can best be described as the one animated feature Disney put out this year and the four other films that bothered to send in a "For your consideration" package out. I almost want to see The Boss Baby win just for the meltdown it would cause on Twitter.

A Silent Voice and In This Corner of the World (and 3 other anime films) were eligible but were not put forward for the final nomination.

Any weebs mad like when the Madoka movie didn't get in?
Aside from Spirited Away (rightfully so), no animated movie outside of Disney, Pixar or Dreamworks (yes, I realize Disney owns one of those too) really ever comes close to winning.

I mean, look at EVERY ANIMATED MOVIE that's won since they introduced the category. It's literally just whatever shit one of those 3 studios happened to put out that year except for whatever weird shit the academy was smoking in 2005. Nothing was released by the big 3 in 2005 and another Miyazaki film was nominated that year also.

I guess rightfully so, though. Some of these titles were massive AND really good stories. Wall-E, and Up most notably.

2001 - Shrek
2002 - Spirited Away
2003 - Finding Nemo
2004 - The Incredibles
2005 - Wallace and Gromit - Curse of the Were-rabbit
2006 - Happy Feet
2007 - Ratatouille
2008 - Wall-E
2009 - Up
2010 - Toy Story 3
2011 - Rango
2012 - Brave
2013 - Frozen
2014 - Big Hero 6
2015 - Inside Out
2016 - Zootopia
2017 - Coco

The only anime films that should ever be nominated are Miyazaki's and maybe Masaaki Yuasa's films. Both don't over rely on anime troupes and they tend to reach a better overall audience because of this.

Otherwise who cares, Japan certainly doesn't give a shit. Weebs shouldn't care either.

The animation category at the oscars is a joke, mainly because animation isn't seen as serious film medium in the United States. Sure, you have Disney who at least try to put out one quality animated film a year; but they are the exception and not the norm. Most animated films are literally intended for young children. I sure someone can name an example, but I can't think of a single American made animated film in the last decade that was intended for an older audience.

With the amount of effort that goes into claymation I don't blame the Academy for giving something to Wallace And Gromit. Although that technically was a Dreamworks film too iirc. Aardman may have made it, but Dreamworks distributed it.

True. Don't get me wrong, I'd rather W&G have won over the status quo winners. 2005 was the year of Madagascar and Chicken Little for the big 3. Surprised Madagascar didn't win just by Dreamworks default since Disney's entry was, by all accounts, shit even for Disney tier movies.

Gee whilickers, it's a real mystery why Get Out was nominated.
Because it was a good movie? idgaf about the politics surrounding it, but it was a legitimately good horror movie.

Anyway, Wonder Woman not getting nominated isn't too much of a shock since it was just the same old capeshit we've seen a bunch of times. I'm more salty about Suicide Squad winning an Oscar last year.

Apparently the judges don’t even bother to watch the animated films.

Really? I only saw good things said about it. It's main problem was no-one went to see it because people are fucking idiots.
From what I heard, the few people who went to see it absolutely loved it and said it was destined to be a cult classic, but it wasn't getting that same respect from critics.

I could be wrong on this though, I'm just going by what I've read on the Internet which is almost certainly bullshit (and written by salty BR2049 fanboys).
