Anomalisa - Charlie Kaufman, Duke Johnson and Rosa Tran
Boy and the World - Alê Abreu
Inside Out - Pete Docter and Jonas Rivera
Shaun the Sheep Movie - Mark Burton and Richard Starzak
When Marnie Was There - Hiromasa Yonebayashi and Yoshiaki Nishimura
actually it would be pretty funny if this was the one to win it
it was okay though, pretty decent movie, good emotions, maybe ghibli's nontakahata/nonmiyazaki best
inside out is going to get the oscar though, that's pretty obvious - it's the most childish american one of the lot
It's gonna be the inside out one. Best animated feature is just a way for Disney and DreamWorks to boost DVD sales. Oscars suck anyway, so much shit taste I can't even watch 30 minutes of them. They exist to promote the brand of big name actors and directors
Also I would be extremely upset if Marnie pulled an Oscar while kaguya didn't. I love both films but kaguya is a league above
>actually it would be pretty funny if this was the one to win it
We all know this will never happen. The circlejerking fags who pick these winners like to pretend "muh pixar 3dcgi is way better kek" every single year.
I always feel like the pick some random Ghibli film once in a while to pretend this is still an international category.
>I love both films but kaguya is a league above
So much this. There was a thread after the Oscars last year with a link about the people who voted on the animated films, and barely any of the people voting actually watched any of the films, only 1 even sat and watched Kaguya, loads of people saying "I won't watch a film with subtitles" or "Isn't this chinese? Why is this in here?"
When Marnie Was There is the weakest film in the line-up. Inside Out and Anomalisa were a hell of a lot more ambitious and actually good same with Shaun the Sheep and Boy and the World.
That's REALLY impressive considering how many art house anime films have been produced in the past 5 years with budgets of $8m.
feeble nippon will never compare
Stop motion is much more expensive than regular animation and it was animated in America where they pay people proper wages rather than farmed out to low paid gooks like anime usually is.
I do agree that Kaguya is on a similar level to Anomalisa, although not as good. You have to admit though that anime films aside from Kaguya have mostly been dreck.
Who cares?Everyone knows that's a american circlejerk. It's a fucking miracle that Spirited away was able to win in 2001.
Miyazaki doesn't give a shit about Oscar though.
This. Frozen and Big Hero 6 winning over The Wind Rises and Kaguya was upsetting, Marnie was meh so anything winning over it is nothing to get upset about especially since every film that's nominated is superior to it.
Kaguya is ballsless ambient animation.
The closest it comes to a point relevant to the times is making one sort of wonder if its about waifu idolatry, but it doesn't actually go into that in any kind of meaningful way.
Out of the 5 films nominated, one is Brazilian, one is British, one is Japanese and two are American. How the fuck is that not international? The nominations for the animated film are usually pretty solid, it's the fact that Disney always wins because the academy voters just vote for their grandchildren's favourite film is the problem.
That's exactly my point. Does it matter if some random indie movie from Kazakhstan gets nominated when it's obvious some DisneyPixar/Dreamworks crap will take it?
Why nominate it in the first place?
Just make the thing jewwood-only and call it a day.
>Just make the thing jewwood-only and call it a day.
They have to give the illusion that's a fair competition and films other than american shit have a chance of winning, anon.
Now with every animation movie had done in 3D, it make all of them looks cheap and instant, also people seems already bored from it. Disney should remember it is not '95 anymore.
Just like Fashion Cycle, I think now people begin to appreciate hand crafted animation movie again like Garden of Words more than before.
This is all about creative industry anon, not Tech industry.
Ghibli was nominated several times, but it only won with Spirited away. I think that Miyazaki alone was nominated 3 times since 2001 and there some 2 or 3 other films not directed by him that were nominated as well.
>Why nominate it in the first place?
Would you fucking prefer Minions and the Good Dinosaur being listed? Are you fags still asspained over Brave winning in 2013 that you write off any Pixar nomination even if its good?
>Would you fucking prefer Minions and the Good Dinosaur being listed?
Not him but who cares?It's entirely possible that even shit like minions would win over any Ghibli movie anyway. That's generally how the Oscar works.
Oscar's are far from perfect and there have been many fiascos throughout the years - Apocalypse Now or that mediocre Jarhead rehash the year of Inglorious Basterds off the top of my head; but it'd be bigoted to call them worthless.
Inside Out was nothing to write home about, but then again, hardly anything in that list is going to be remembered past next year.
Good animated films don't make money, so people don't make good animated films anymore. Ghibli had a very strong brand and immense talent in Miyazaki and takahata's which is how they stayed in business for so long. Anomalisa looks great, but if it doesn't win the Oscar it is going to be a big flop financially. Also comparing films that are so different is asinine and makes you look immature
What kind of message do you think they're transmitting when international stuff gets nominated every time but never fucking win?
God bless based murrica. Land of animation!
You mean Frozen in 2013? I'm fine with it actually.If I were to be asspained about this shitty event it would be over Ghibli getting nominated over Satoshi.
We grumble about it every year. It eventually gets 404'ed every year.
>Good animated films don't make money, so people don't make good animated films anymore.
Everytime that I see the box office from Kaguya, it breaks my heart. It wasn't even enough to pay what they spent when making the movie.
Had the movie been finished on time and released as a double feature w/ kaze tachinu as originally planned it would have done much better financially, but hey, at least it got finished.
>Ghibli getting nominated over Satoshi.
What's the problem with that?Both are God-tier, but have completely different styles. The thing is that you just prefer Satoshi because his movies seem to be more targeted toward adults compared to Ghibli.
For fucks sake, Mad Max got a nomination for best picture, how do you take this shit seriously?
>jump romance manga
I know that's the kind of shit redditors like yourself willingly slurp down, but kono sekai no katsumi ni is going to be the best animated film of 2016
>another world war 2 story
>being better received than literal award bait about bullying of disabled children supported by the Japanese Federation of the Deaf
And it's not just Kyoani, it's Yamada as well. Japs are already familiar with her because she got a nomination at Japanese Academy Prize for K-ON and took home best new director at JMAF for TLS.
Keep your ignorance and butthurt about Kyoani back on /v/
Yeah, because there are so few anime about high schoolers and way too fucking many about ww2... if I don't know who fumiyo kono is that only further proves how much of a pleb you are.
They don't like animated film period. They only see it as mindless entertainment for children and that's it. The have never seen any of these films and are just going to pick the most noteworthy film.
fucking Big Hero 6 won last year over Kaguya... so this year the possibility is even worst, Inside Out being a much better film.
I still think Marnie is better than Inside Out though
Yes, Koe no Katachi is clearly just a high schooler story and its popularity has nothing to do with one of its central characters being disabled.
And no, we definitely haven't had a WW2 movie in a while definitely not like Ghibli just made one in 2013.
Why do retards from /v/ pretend like they know anything about anime?
First off, epic redirect to /v/, you really showed me. I'm definitely not an anime or Japanese cinema buff, oh no I much prefer dota 2. Second, I don't know if we watched the same film, wind rises is not a ww2 film, it takes place during the interbellum. There is a difference, which you would appreciate if you had any knowledge of Japanese culture. And finally, it doesn't matter one bit if the protag is disabled, its going to be crying high school forced drama.... I can't watch that shit anymore. I don't understand how anime fans in particular shovel the same rehashed shit down their throats year after year after year
That's probably because you're too close minded and caught up with the setting rather than the themes portrayed. Saying KnK is just a high school drama and ignoring how it sheds light on the japanese treatment of disabled children is really simplifying the story beyond reason. The fact that you don't think the protagonist being disabled is relevant when it's central to the story is kind of grasping for straws don't you think? The high school setting might be overused in anime but it's in no way an indictment on all stories told that uses it, and KnK has more to say about the treatment of deaf children and how the victims of bullying start blaming themselves than it does about high school life.
And it's a little humorous you get all offended about being told to go back to /v/ when you first started calling people redditors. Maybe don't be such a faggot if you're going to be thin skinned about it being used on you, and if your only complaint is the prevalence of high schools in anime then fuck off back to /v/
This, They created the best animated film category because when Beauty and the Beast won Best Picture the suits flipped their shit and didn't like that a "cartoon" won the highest award.
Have you seen the movie? It's really quite good. I honestly was surprised and a little delighted to see it get a nod. Nice to see that the AA can think outside of their art house film box.
Most of everything else about the nominations annoy me, however.
