90th Academy Awards Results!

3 Comments

Well, the 90th Academy Awards has come and gone (without another #Envelopegate, I may add) and my predictions score was 17/24! It’s my highest score, tied with my score from the Oscars ceremony two years ago. Coco won Best Animated Feature and Dear Basketball won Best Animated Short (yes, Kobe Bryant now has more Oscars than Alfred Hitchcock!). For a list of the other winners, please click here.

What did you all think of the Oscars? How did you do on your predictions? Let me know in the comments!

The nominees that I think SHOULD win will be in red, the nominees that I think WILL win will be in blue, and if they’re the same, they will be both red and blue. Enjoy and let me know what you think in the comments below!

BEST ANIMATED FEATURE:

The Boss Baby
The Breadwinner

Once again, it’s time to take a look at what next year has to offer us in terms of theatrical animation! Many of us felt that 2017 wasn’t a great year for animation (at least, not for mainstream animation), so we’re hoping that 2018 can make up for it!

Check out my list below of the upcoming theatrical animated films set for release next year! Bear in mind that these are only the animated films with verified US/Canada release dates and that any and all dates are subject to change at any time. Enjoy!

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Teaser Trailer Debuts!

6 Comments

The teaser trailer for Sony Pictures Animation’s upcoming film, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, has debuted.

Can I just say that I LOVE the animation style of this film! It looks super stylized and unlike anything that Sony Pictures Animation has ever done before! This could be their magnum opus!

The film features the voice talents of Shameik Moore, Liev Schreiber, Mahershala Ali, and Brian Tyree Henry and is being directed by Bob Persichetti and Peter Ramsey. The film is set to swing into theaters on December 14, 2018. What do you think of the trailer? Are you looking forward to the film?

The nominees for the upcoming 45th Annie Awards ceremony have been announced and you can see the full list of nominees by clicking here. Pixar’s Coco is in the lead with 13 nominations! A few of the interesting categories are as follows:

BEST ANIMATED FEATURE

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie
Cars 3
Coco
Despicable Me 3
The Boss Baby

BEST ANIMATED FEATURE-INDEPENDENT

In This Corner of the World
Loving Vincent
Napping Princess
The Big Bad Fox & Other Tales
The Breadwinner

BEST ANIMATED SHORT SUBJECT

Dear Basketball
Hedgehog’s Home

BEST VOICE ACTING IN AN ANIMATED FEATURE PRODUCTION

Nick Kroll (Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie)
Anthony Gonzalez (Coco)
Saara Chaudry (The Breadwinner)
Laara Sadiq (The Breadwinner)
Zach Galifianakis (The LEGO Batman Movie)

What do you all think of the nominees? I’m really surprised that The LEGO Batman Movie didn’t get a nomination for Best Animated Feature whilst The Boss Baby did! Also, was Zach Galifianakis’ voicework as the Joker really THAT good to warrant a Best Voice Acting nomination? Glad to see The Breadwinner, The Big Bad Fox & Other Tales, and Dear Basketball getting love though!

The teaser trailer for the upcoming Pixar film, The Incredibles 2, has debuted!

While it doesn’t reveal anything about the plot (as it is a teaser), it has gotten many people interested in the sequel. I personally am waiting for the first theatrical trailer to get excited.

The Incredibles 2 hits theaters on June 15, 2018.
