Haha, dude, you need to relax. It's 2014 :lol:

Plus, it's unknown if WIR 2 will come out that time...or at all. And I expect Moana coming to 2017.

Calm down with the overreacting. I assume Sotiris is only making these threads so the first post will have all info. when the time comes. I would personally rather Sotiris make these threads than others, just because I know I, for instance, am very bad at making threads and putting links to this, that, and whatever which would make the thread more cohesive.

Also, FYI, we also have threads for films that may not be out until 2019 or beyond.

The Academy has announced new rules in the music and animation categories:

Quote:
When it comes to the Academy's music categories, things are likely to get a bit more cut-throat than ever earlier in the season, with the music branch announcing that it will announce a shortlist of 15 finalists for the best original score and best original song Oscars, as determined by a preferential ballot, in December. This means that more than a month before Oscar noms are announced, the vast majority of contenders for each of those awards will be eliminated.

Good news has arrived for producers of films aiming to compete for the best animated feature and best documentary feature Oscars. In recent years, no more than one producer could be nominated alongside a director in those categories, but the Academy has now aligned its rules governing those categories with the rules governing the best picture category so that three producers can be eligible for a film, with the possibility of a fourth if an appeal is approved.

Finally, as part of an effort to streamline voting deadlines, the Academy announced that six "specialty categories" — best animated feature, best documentary feature and best foreign language feature, plus all three shorts categories, best animated short, best documentary short and best live action short — will now have the same submission deadline of Oct. 1, while hopefuls in all other categories will have until Nov. 15 to enter the race.

Ten feature films have been selected for competition at the 2018 Annecy International Animated Film Festival. Click on the hyperlinks to watch a trailer for each entry. Funan and Mirai seem the most interesting ones to me.

01. The Breadwinner
02. Cinderella the Cat
03. Funan
04. Mirai
05. Okko's Inn
06. Seder-Masochism
07. Tito and the Birds
08. Virus Tropical
09. Wall
10. The Wolf House

Funan won this year's top prize, the Cristal for a Feature Film. The Breadwinner won the Jury Award as well as the Audience Award. The Wolf House won the Jury Distinction.

The Breadwinner and Cinderella the Cat were submitted for Oscar consideration last year with the former securing a nomination. Mirai and Tito and the Birds were picked up for U.S. distribution by GKIDS and Shout! Studios respectively, and will be submitted for Oscar consideration this year.

I've heard some really positive things about Tito and the Birds. I can see GKIDS acquiring that one and making that their big Oscar push.

I highly doubt GKids will be able to score a nomination this year. These are the films I expect to be nominated.

Incredibles 2
Wreck-It Ralph 2
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
Isle of Dogs
Early Man (or Paddington 2 if it's eligible)

^With the current rules in the category, it sounds very likely that these titles could be the nominees.

25 animated films have been submitted for consideration to the Academy. Many eligible indie films such as Haikara-San: Here Comes Miss Modern, Laughing Under the Clouds: Gaiden, Revengeance, and Tehran Taboo were not submitted and neither were the family-friendly, animation/live-action hybrids such as Paddington 2, Peter Rabbit, Monster Hunt 2, and Christopher Robin.

Netflix chose to render ineligible all of its animated features this year including White Fang, Next Gen, Duck Duck Goose, Gnome Alone, Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle, and Altered Carbon.


Here's a breakdown of the submitted films by country. In the case of co-productions, I've listed the movie only under its primary producing country.

USA
The Grinch
Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation
Incredibles 2
Isle of Dogs
Ralph Breaks the Internet
Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero
Smallfoot
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

UK
Early Man
Sherlock Gnomes

France
MFKZ
Tall Tales

Hungary
Ruben Brandt, Collector

Mexico
Ana y Bruno

Brazil
Tito and the Birds

China
Have a Nice Day

Taiwan
On Happiness Road

Japan
Fireworks
The Laws of the Universe – Part I
Liz and the Blue Bird
Lu Over the Wall
Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms
Mirai
The Night Is Short, Walk On Girl


Based on the submitted entries, my prediction for the films nominated becomes the following.

Best Case Scenario
Incredibles 2
Ralph Breaks the Internet
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
Isle of Dogs
Ruben Brandt, Collector

Worst Case Scenario
Incredibles 2
Ralph Breaks the Internet
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
Isle of Dogs
The Grinch

I could see Early Man make it in, given that many still love Aardman.

I have my doubts about that. Not only Early Man is the 2nd worst reviewed Aardman film after Flushed Away, it was released early this year so it's not on the Academy's radar. Not to mention, the spot of the token stop-motion this time is taken by the Isle of Dogs. If they're going to let another indie in, it's probably going to be a hand-drawn one. With the changes in the voting process—the whole Academy can nominate now for this category instead of just members of the animation breach—it's even more likely they'll nominate another American CG movie instead of a second indie.
