26 Animated Features Submitted For 2017 Oscar Race


This has been a very weak year for animation. I couldn't even find 5 buzz-worthy titles of the 26 that are eligible for the animation Oscar this coming February. Surely the creators of the Emoji Movie understand the Oscars would sooner cancel themselves than nominate that thing for anything..... I hope. So this race is more or less going to come down to these titles:

The Breadwinner
The LEGO Batman Movie
Loving Vincent

I would bet on Coco. It's not landmark Pixar but it's definitely a hard-earned and respectable effort from the company.

The list in its entirety:

The Big Bad Fox & Other Tales
Birdboy: The Forgotten Children
The Boss Baby
The Breadwinner
Captain Underpants The First Epic Movie
Cars 3
Cinderella the Cat
Despicable Me 3
The Emoji Movie
Ethel & Ernest
The Girl without Hands
In This Corner of the World
The Lego Batman Movie
The Lego Ninjago Movie
Loving Vincent
Mary and the Witch’s Flower
Moomins and the Winter Wonderland
My Entire High School Sinking into the Sea
Napping Princess
A Silent Voice
Smurfs: The Lost Village
The Star
Sword Art Online: The Movie – Ordinal Scale
Window Horses: The Poetic Persian Epiphany of Rosie Ming
