  • Today, they have announced the nominations for Best Animated Feature at the Oscars. (films distributed by Disney are in Bold letters)

    The nominees are:

    • Frozen
    • The Wind Rises
    • Despicable Me 2
    • The Croods
    • Ernest and Celestine

    I am surprised that Monsters University was snubbed from the category, despite the film being average. Anyhow, I hope Frozen will win Best Animated Feature, but i have my doubts since it will have thick competition with Miyazaki's final film "The Wind Rises". So what you guys think of the nominees in the category? Who will win? Please leave a comment

    • FROZEN HAS TO WIN. But Despicable Me 2 was wildly popular. That concerns me.

      Yeah, me too, I never saw it, but it looked like it had too many cheap shots. I don't hate Despicable Me, I'm just hoping that Frozen wins the Oscars it's nominated for. COME ON FROZEN! YOU CAN WIN THIS!!!!

      I don't think we would have to worry about Despicable Me 2 winning the award, since it's a sequel, and the Academy rarely gives the Oscar to animated sequel films. (except Toy Story 3)

      I have the same opinion on Frozen as I do with Brave: It's not that I didn't like it, I just thought it could've been better. Both movies have a lot of very good qualities, but they just fell short of the pedigree of both Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar. The problem is, they had to make movies that can please the Disney Princess demographic and not anger feminists while still making a good movie with good characters. Because of this, both movies feel rather inconsistent and unfocused and don't allow for a whole lot of character development and emotion. Here's an idea: how about make a good movie with a good story and characters that just happens to have female protagonists. That being said, Frozen and Brave are very good movies with fun characters and beautiful animation; it's just that there's an even better movie hidden somewhere in them.

      So what? It's not like the Oscars are the end-all-be-all of a film's quality. Must I remind you that Citizen Kane, which is hailed to be the greatest movie ever made, did not win Best Picture. There have been great movies that did not win Oscars, as well as winners that, while may have been lauded for their time, don't quite hold up as well today; however, the quality of a film is all subjective, or opinion based. It doesn't help that the Oscars themselves are not exactly stable (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWqib0TwxIU).

      Huh? I wasn't saying Frozen or its nominations were dumb at all! I was just saying that we don't always agree with the Oscars choices. Maybe I just used the wrong word...

    • I think "Frozen" will win. Not because I love it, but because I noticed most the other animated films were rated in the 60's or 70's on Rotten Tomatoes. I have always noticed for past nominees like "Finding Nemo" and "Up" (even though I really didn't like that one) that are stated to have gotten universal critical acclaim are usually the ones that win. That's why I think "Frozen" would win.

    • Frozen is the obvious winner! This is the only movie I can call the greatest movie in the world, it's unthinkable that this film wouldn't win. Frozen is a clear Oscar-winner!

      That may be so, but they are regarded the greatest award for a film, and I don't think that will really change. And honestly, according to me, for a film to be considered or deserve the title of "the greatest movie ever made" (or "the best film I've ever seen"), the film simply have to be something very special and extraordinary in every sense. The film has to be a practically flawless film that is not only very/extremely well made but also has to speak to a great amount of people over the world and with the proof of amazing box office results and spectacular positive reviews. (I don't think Citizen Kane is a movie of that material, even though it might have been somewhat of a small revolution/change in film-making.) I've seen many (thousands) films throughout my life, and I've enjoyed and favoured a great deal of them, but none have I seen that truly deserved that extraordinary title of "the greatest film of all time". At least, that was before November 2013, the date when Disney showed me what such a movie really was like. I'm pretty sure everyone knows which well-recieved, record-breaking, multiple-award-winning movie I'm refering to. I do agree with you however that there's something not quite right with the Academy Awards, for one thing, I find it particularly strange that (unlike some of Disney's other great films) Frozen didn't get a nomination for "Best Picture", while it is truly and undoubtedly a movie worthy of such a nomination and award. If there's any Disney-film out there that really deserved this nomination, then it is Frozen. Even if it wouldn't win, it would still deserve the nomination. So the Oscars have done some good and some bad choices, indeed.

      Uhhh, that "some director" is Hayao Miyazaki, the greatest animator who ever lived. Both The Wind Rises and Frozen were deserving contenders. I'm glad Frozen won, it's just a shame Miyazaki has only ever won once (for Spirited Away). I can name a few more of his films that deserved to win. Certainly more so than Brave.
