Oscar nominees Best Animated Feature 2014
Earlier today this article was brought to my attention, in which it becomes clear that some of the Academy voters have little to no respect for the animation industry. They openly admit not having watched the nominated films and/or claiming that animated films are for kids, so they didn’t vote. Even the ones shown in the article that did vote barely motivated their choice.
I find this extremely disrespectful of the animators who poured their heart and soul into making these movies, only to have their work be pushed aside without a second glance by the judges of one of the most prominent and well known film awards out there. As an aspiring animator, I am deeply insulted.
Please note that in this post I am expressing no opinion on whether Frozen should have won or not. I think it’s a wonderful film, just as all the other nominees. I am simply saying that we deserve better.
What they did is disrespectful to the creators of every single one of these films, even Frozen. By barely motivating their choice, they make it look like they voted for Frozen simply because of Disney’s status in the industry. Because it’s Disney, and it made a lot of money, so it had to be at least somewhat good. To me it seems like some of the voters just defaulted to voting for the Disney film, and nobody likes to win by default.
Don’t get me wrong, I too have been guilty of loving Disney simply because it’s Disney, but there is so much more beautiful animation out there and it deserves to be taken into consideration. And if Frozen won, it should have won because the majority of the voters thought it was the best film, not because part of the voters was too lazy to even watch the nominated films.
the weird thing about internet friends is that you don’t know how tall they are
So I keep looking at fans of Sherlock, and they have these long breaks/hiatuses from the show to deal with, and I’m just like
"Life must be hard for you."
the fact that animation is still completely disrespected by the academy and is only seen as a “children’s” medium is the biggest crock of shit.
YES THANK YOU
good to know that if a non-Disney animated film is ever up for an Oscar the judges won’t even fucking bother to watch it. not like that’s their job or anything. to watch the movies. the Oscar nominated movies they’re judging.
Behind the Magic - Pacific Rim - The Kaiju
The way ILM brought the Kaiju in Pacific Rim to life is one of the most spectacular things I have ever had the pleasure of witnessing. Everything about the Kaiju is on point and no detail is spared. Even the way they animated the fat jiggling on Leatherback amazes me. I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again: the people at Industrial Light and Magic are truly the best at what they do.
