Though it is nice to see all of these smaller and foreign films get nominated for a change.
Honestly, the nominations usually are fine (inb4 muh Lego Movie), it is the winners that tend to be a joke.
That's because John Powell is God, though.
One cannot compare him to mere mortals like Giacchino.
Honestly, I'm just wondering how Star Wars: TFA got a score nomination (outside of the fact that it's Star Wars and it's John Williams - who always gets a nomination for something). Outside of the familiar theme I can't remember a single part of that soundtrack.
Rey's Theme probably, given it's high view count on sites like spotify. Every time I leave a thread debating whether or not she's a mary sue I get that damn song stuck in my head, but I'm even a sucker for Williams less notable scores
No Peanuts, what. It probably shouldn't win if it was nominated but a nomination is good enough.
Just like Charlie Brown
Honestly the academy houses animation just out of courtesy. Academy Awards is a shit show in general, but when it comes to animation it's horrid.
Reminder that for 1988 Who Framed Roger Rabbit got seven noms and FOUR DAMN WINS while Akira got NOTHING.
Do you ever think that Disney pays off nominee voters to 'eliminate' the nominees most threatening to their films chances?
Last year it was Lego Movie, and this year basically every American animated film besides Inside Out and the little critical darling Anamolisa which, lets face it, has no chance in hell of winning.
This list of nominees combined with the voters' general apathy towards animation and tendency to vote for whatever their kids watched makes it impossible for anything besides Inside Out to win.
Question - why do studios that are not Pixar or Disney bother campaigning when the voters are just gonna pick whatever either of those two companies shit out?
It's such a waste of time and resources.
I know you wa funny man but trying to discuss anime film on this website is soul crushing
>/a/ is full of moefags, waifufags, and FOTM worshippers who crosspost on /v/
>/tv/ is full of wannabe normies who hate weeaboos because they think they should
>/co/ is full of... well, you know.
Best place to do it is fucking /ic/ of all places but they're too destructive trying to one-up each other to settle on anything.
Disney doesn't have to because >>78979097 ; nobody watches the noms so they just pick Disney cuz branding.
>outside of the fact that it's Star Wars and it's John Williams - who always gets a nomination for something
This is literally it. The soundtrack is shit, especially compared to the previous movies.
I'm not sure if it's Williams to blame for phoning it in, or JJ for not effectively using the score in his film and drowing it out with silly action and explosions.
Question: how in the fuck did TFA get an Editing nomination??? I found that to be one of the worst aspects of the film.
The theatrical cut wins, not the extended. That's basically the fanservice cut.
Jackson left Christopher Lee out of the theatrical cut to squeeze more CGI battles in. Then later when everyone had their portraits in the credits Lee was missing but Sean Bean was in because of a seconds-long flashback. That was ludicrous.
I doubt Leo doesn't take it this year. His only real competitor is Redmayne, and something tells me they won't give it to the guy two years in a row.
But, if he doesn't win, there's no way he won't take it for playing a serial killer with 47 split personalities from all different ages, ethnicities and sexes in "The Crowded Room" next year.
But he's done this plenty of times. Stop being a shit poster.
Why is /co/ so pleb about film?
/a/ is great to talk about anime films, you would know that if you went there.
/co/ is plebians paradise.
>It's Oscar night.

>That man is Charlie Kaufman.
The new star wars was overall average at best, a "watch once and forget" type of movie. But it was a competent movie with competent acting and less CGI diarrhea than the prequels so everyone's sucking it's cock and going nuts. This is going to leave less impact on pop culture than the shitty prequels, at least they were so awful that they spawned a ton of memes and funny negative reviews. If this didn't have the official SW name attached to it, it'd be put in the pile with all the other mildly entertaining but vastly inferior SW knock-offs.
Anime movies have much lower budgets than Disney movies, use fewer frames of animation and are often longer. They also almost certainly have more efficient, cost-effective production.
But Disney's animation is the way it is because of creative decisions. They chose to emphasize fluid character motion and disregard everything else, and they chose to make vaudeville-inspired children's/family movies.
>Next you'll be telling me that Eva is a groundbreaking work.
That's because it is. You don't even have to like anime to understand that. Next you'll tell me all Ren & Stimpy did was create a slew of grossout shows that added nothing of value to television.
