What do you all think of these nominees, in particular? I haven’t seen The Boss Baby yet, but really? It’s Oscar-worthy? I find that very hard to believe! But, I’m so glad that Glen Keane’s Dear Basketball has made it to the list!

We now come to Shark Tale in our journey through the DreamWorks Animation Canon. Released in 2004, this film is pretty infamous for being disliked by many and considered one of the worst¬†DreamWorks Animation films ever made! But, as I mentioned in my Top 13 Animated Movies that I Like, But Everyone Else Doesn’t list, I actually like this movie. I’m not saying it’s an amazing film, but I don’t think it deserves the hatred that it gets at all!
