I'm predicting Peanuts to win this one. Looks to be a game changer in animation and sure to inspire a lot of nostalgia from voters.

Of course everything is the purest of speculation right now, but with 2 Pixar movies...original, non-sequel Pixar movies... don't count them out!

Slim pickings.

Yeah, I'm sure Pixar has 2015 on lock, most likely with Inside Out. The only possible competition would be Peanuts.

Yeah, come on. All of us know how Pixar buys its Oscar every time (minus Cars) it's in the running. And it looks like they have a keeper for Inside Out from reporters who have seen footage of it.

My guesses are:

B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations
Inside Out
Kung Fu Panda 3
The Good Dinosaur (or Minions if Pixar choose IO instead)
Peanuts

Possible spoiler:
Minions

I wonder if Pixar will choose one movie out of another like Disney picks its most successful short over the other for the Oscars.

Inside Out for the win! I'm rooting for it to be good more than anything though. If it is, the win will come along with it.

I like the aesthetic of Peanuts, but we don't know much about it otherwise. It could have a terrible story or get the Peanuts tone and vibe completely wrong. We just don't know yet, so calm down about it! :smack:

Eight feature films have been selected for competition at the 2015 Annecy International Animated Film Festival. Click on the hyperlinks to watch the trailer for each entry. Not very impressed with this year's line-up. The only ones I find interesting are the "Long Way North" and "Miss Hokusai".

01. Adama
02. April and the Extraordinary World
03. Long Way North
04. Miss Hokusai
05. Mune
06. Possessed
07. Sabogal
08. The Case of Hana & Alice

April and the Extraordinary World won this year's top prize, the Cristal for a Feature Film. Miss Hokusai won the Jury Award while Long Way North won the Audience Award. April and the Extraordinary World has been picked up for U.S. distribution by GKids which will be submitting it for Oscar consideration in 2016.

The Good Dinosaur has this locked down. Pixar would have released Inside Out in November if it were the stronger of the two films. There is no way The Good Dinosaur isn't going for the win here. Peanuts to spoil, but I really doubt it.

It was supposed to be released in May 2014 so I don't know about that. That much of a delay indicates there were problems with it.

I hope it's great though. Just one original Pixar film in a year could be refreshing, let alone two.

I guess it really depends which one gets more acclaim and which one Disney decides to focus more attention on. Inside Out will be released on Blu-Ray around the time The Good Dinosaur will open, so both films will still be fresh in people's memories. Of course, if both are equally loved, there is the possibility of a vote split and another movie sneaking in for a win (I'm betting on Peanuts, which has the nostalgia factor and from every interview I've read, there's every indication they won't modernise it with pop-culture references and inappropriate humour).

Im hoping that The Prophet at least gets nominated, as its truely a ballsy venture in this day of cookie cutter Hollywood releases. Doesnt have any chance of winning of course as it will just go to whichever was most popular and made most money this year.

Funimation has just announced they have acquired The Boy and The Beast and they'll be submitting it for Oscar consideration. This is great news; the film looks very promising. I've enjoyed all of Mamoru Hosoda's films and I'm glad he'll be competing even if getting nominated is a long shot. It was such a shame Funimation didn't submit Wolf Children in 2013 which I consider his best work so far.

Trailer (with English subtitles)

Yeah, that was kind of puzzling that they didn't submit Wolf Children. I agree it was his best film to date, and it would be great if the film snagged a nomination. Of all of the "next Miyazaki" contenders that have popped up, I definitely think he is the closest thing so far, in terms of both critical reception and sheer popularity. Each of his films have successively become bigger and bigger hits, and Wolf Chidren was huge. He is definitely a huge outlier in an environment where virtually all of the domestic animated box office hits have been either Ghibli films or movie adaptations of TV franchises.

Really looking forward to this new film.

If the early reviews of Inside Out are any indication, this is going to be a pretty predictable Oscar race :lol:

I'll be happy if Pixar gets a well-deserved win with a fresh and original film though.

Paramount also recently purchased Charlie Kaufman's stop-motion animated film "Anomalisa" and are planning on giving it a limited release at the end of the year to qualify for Oscars.

Although it does make me wonder what their plans are for The Little Prince. They have US distribution rights to it, but haven't announced an American release date yet.

At the moment, I think the films with the highest chances of getting nominated are Inside Out, Shaun the Sheep, When Marnie Was There, Anomalisa, (reviews pending) The Peanuts Movie, The Good Dinosaur and (if it's given a qualifying run) The Little Prince.

Only 16 features have been submitted for Oscar consideration. Strangely enough, a lot of features that were eligible weren't actually submitted including DisneyToon Studios' Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast and Lucasfilm Animation's Strange Magic.

Today I learned that there is a Regular Show movie that apparently has enough milage to be nominated for an Ocsar. Thanks for telling me about that.

Everything else was predictable. So, I think When Marnie was There and Inside Out are probably going to be picked, with Inside Out winning. The Peanuts Movie's positive reception so far will probably grant it a nomination as an obligatory non-Disney/Pixar American film, but definitely not a win against Inside Out. The Good Dinosaur is still to come, but as long as the Academy doesn't restrict themselves to only one Pixar film (which would mean that Pixar has less competition...against Pixar) and the reception is decent I can see voters eating it up. The single other nomination is up in the air, and I bet they'll pick a foreign film for it. I feel bad for thinking this, but I really hope Shaun the Sheep isn't that foreign film. It's the "safe" choice, but it's not the most interesting one. Best case scenario though is that Pixar only gets one nomination, allowing Aardman plus another more obscure studio to have some of the spotlight.

Edit: I also completely skimmed over Anomalisa. That has a fair chance of being nominated too. It's not a foreign film either, and the reception has been outstanding. It's just too Oscar-baity for the Academy to ignore.

Lucasfilm Animation is owned by Disney, right? I'm guessing they don't want any votes going to other things, so there's no possibility Inside Out will lose.
