Disney Left out of Oscars

Oscar nominations for animated features have been announced. And as a sign of how far Disney’s feature animation department has fallen, no Disney film was even nominated this year. Instead we have two stop-motion films, one from an upstart studio in Portland, OR and one from a British master, and one hand-drawn film from the masters at Studio Ghibli. I’ve only seen Miyazaki-san’s film (I know, I need to get out more, but I plead the defense of having a 2-year old at home) so I can’t give a good opinion on which one I think will win. But from what I’ve read it will be a close call between Howl’s Moving Castle and Wallace and Grommit.

BEST ANIMATED FILM
NOMINATIONS

  • "Howl’s Moving Castle," Hayao Miyazaki
  • "Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride," Tim Burton and Mike Johnson
  • "Wallace & Grommit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit," Nick Park and Steve Box

There was no Pixar film released in 2005.

    Really, I can’t think of any Disney pictures released this past year beyond Chicken Little. I haven’t seen it, but I know its reviews weren’t too good.
