26 features vie for Oscar best animated film
    2017-November-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

TWENTY-SIX features, from studio films like Pixar’s upcoming “Coco” to indie offerings like the Afghanistan-set “The Breadwinner,” have been submitted for consideration in the animated feature film category for the 90th Academy Awards. While the number of submissions falls one short of the record 27 features that were submitted last year, it sets the stage for five nominees in the category, since, according to Academy rules, if 16 or more films qualify, the Academy may nominate the maximum number of five nominees.

This year, for the first time, the Academy is also opening up the nominating process to the entire membership of the organization, inviting anyone who is interested to join the animated feature nominating committee. The rule change, which will be watched closely, could impact the results if it favors widely-seen studio CG-animated releases at the expense of smaller, often hand-drawn, animated films.

In addition to “Coco,” high-profile features include Illumination/Universal’s “Despicable Me 3,” the top-grossing animated film of 2017, having collected US$1.03 billion worldwide; DreamWorks/Fox’s “The Boss Baby;” Pixar/Disney’s “Cars 3;” Sony’s “The Emoji Movie;” Warners’ “The Lego Batman Movie” and “The Lego Ninjago Movie;” and Fox/Blue Sky’s upcoming “Ferdinand.”

The list also includes such entries as GKIDS/Cartoon Saloon’s “The Breadwinner,” which Angelina Jolie executive produced, and BreakThru Films/Good Deed’s “Loving Vincent,” which uses animated oil paintings to tell the story of Vincent van Gogh.

In order to ultimately qualify, the submitted features must have a theatrical release in Los Angeles and comply with the category’s other rules before they can advance in the voting process.(SD-Agencies)
