tfw every year oscucks set animation about a decade back by awarding some terrible garbage like Frozen and Zootopia, invariably signalling that it is indeed just some shit for little kids with no standards.

crap like Big Hero 6 is oscar material
wins against Song of the Sea and Marie Was Here
Literally no one actually cares about this category, it's just there to sell the newest disney products better, isn't it.

From what I hear the people who vote on the movies don't even see them. Honestly, I never cared for the Oscars. Just watch what you like.

Obviously, but that's not the issue. I believe it is actively hurting the animation and preventing it from evolving. Why try making something great when Disney's annual fartout will win.

I guess you could support another lesser known animation that deserves but even then that usually turns out in small numbers. Not sure what you can do at this point. Sorry trips.

Animation isn't being hurt by a film like Zootopia proving you can get a little more mature with you themes in a kids movie.

It's held back by shit like sausage party ensuring nobody sees the media of appealing to anybody but children.

The funny thing is that animation is more of an art than the live action film they love so fucking much. Having to draw every second of action is much more work than waving your shitty overpriced camera around while a bunch of adults get paid millions to play pretend.

If you cant relate, is not art, not even your precious anime, as perfect and beautiful as it is, can relate to normal people, this is why a Zack Efron & Seth Rogaine is considered more mature than your Anime Movies.

Juan Long

A more simple and likely explanation is that animation is considered children's entertainment incapable of having any true artistic value comparable to live action movies.

This was in 2013. 2014 Oscars managed to piss me off even more because it was one hell of a year for animated movies like HTTYD 2, The LEGO movie, and Book of Life. But they fucking nixed the latter two because LEGO was based on a toy (yeah fuck the advanced CGI) and Book of Life, I have no fucking idea. The Oscars are nothing more than pretentious shit that award movies that are most likely going to be forgotten in the coming years but called timeless because it hits all the right notes for the pretentious moviegoers. It's disgusting that young animators strive to win an Oscar when these fucks don't give a shit about them.

Xavier Watson

2014 had Princess Kaguya and it didn't fucking win. Instead a crappy cartoon for 13 y.o did. Out of all the categories this is the one that is literally a joke. Why even have it if you don't care that much.

There's a history about that. In 2000, Chicken Run was running for a Best Picture nomination. However, the Oscars didn't want an animated feature to pop up in the nomination so they created the Best Animated Feature category hoping they would shut up. It would explain that before at least 2009, the category was a joke and any animated feature, even movies like Shark Tale and Bee Movie, can get nominated.

Joseph Brown

Why not just put some animation directors/people savvy in the fiend in charge of the category? They clearly don't give a fuck about the results or anything, so it's no sweat off their balls. I'm sure there are many qualified people who'd volunteer.

Problem is, there WAS a time Disney was groundbreaking in its production values and thats when it gots its foothold. Now? It just reaps its undue rewards.

Sausage party might be infantile, but it was basically a two-hour TV-level-writing animation about religion. Cheap, yeah. But how it woulsnt be mature?

I wonder what prompted Japan to create the same category (starting in 2007). They had actually given Best Picture awards to animation before.

Anthony Johnson

The Academy's voting habits are probably Hollywood's worst kept secrets. Of course they're going to vote for the movies with the most hype, with a few token/dark horse votes to add uncertainty.

Best Picture flub aside, I'll be goddamned if anybody was actually surprised by the winners this year.

I'm more interested how the hell Spirited Away won the oscar. Seems impossible nowadays. Was someone competent in charge back in the early years.

Dylan Kelly

It was distributed by Disney in America, and maybe they thought they couldn't credibly give the award to any of the other nominees.

It was in the same year as Lilo and Stitch. Also that didn't stop them pretty much every year since.

Elijah Cook

Sounds plausible, I'm pretty sure that directors wouldn't have liked to have their movie along with an "animated kids one"

Samuel Allen

It was just crude sex shock humor with a vague pussified version of a religious context so it could pretend to be deep.

The far funnier movie, and one that could lead to some interesting satire, would be if food being eaten was the sex part. With kind of horrific imagery juxtaposed against orgasmic glee, and the idea that it's happening in your mouth each time you eat. With older and stater food attempting to impose rules on the young fresh food because that's how they had it.

The oscars are about as incestuous as you can get in Hollywood short of your parents being related before they were married, since it's a bunch of old industry insiders giving out brownie points to other industry people.

It's over an hour and a half of puns based on objects in a grocery store with sex jokes thrown in, the religious subtext is just there so they can wave away any actual criticism despite the fact that said "subtext" is about as subtextual as The Communist Manifesto.

Jordan Reed
Jordan Reed

To begin with, oscars are a private enterprise. It's not established by some governmental department of cinema or anything. It's kinda like being a cameo on Simpsons - it's prestigious only contextually. Hence there are some many other awards meaning the exact same thing, but nobody wants to be a cameo on Family Guy.

Mason Taylor

That's ironic considering there have been many a time when the best animation nominees were downright better than the best feature nominees. And yet they just dump them all together in one big pile with cartoons for 13 y.os. Their argument is that "well, there is no category for just comedies or just dramas, everything must stand strong on its own feet as a film". Except they don't nominate at all films comparable to those going into the animation category. Like if Frozen or Big Hero 6 were live action, they would be oscar material? Kek.

Literally no one actually cares about this category, it's just there to sell the newest disney products better, isn't it.
I calculated it, 68.75% of all Best Animated Feature winners are Disney. This is mainly because, before 2007, it was fairly even between non-Disney films and Disney, with Shrek, Spirited Away, the Wallace & Gromit movie, and Happy Feet all winning.

Ever since 2007, though, the only non-Disney film to win has been Rango in 2011.

This effect is also not due to the sheer volume of Disney films nominated, as Disney only has
31.25% of the total nominations.

So, in summary, Disney gets 31.25% of the nominations, but 68.75% of the victories. It is absolutely just there to sell Disney products.

Yeah, pretty sure the judges outright mention they don't watch ANY of the animated entries (which was a category they only made because Beauty and the Beast was nominated and they didn't want animated films in their very serious awards) unless their kids happen to. It's a deliberate ghetto and afterthought.
