AFT Awards: Best Animated Feature

This is the seventeenth category of the 8th Annual AFT Film Awards to be announced. The AFT Awards are my own personal choices for the best in film of each year and the best in television of each season. The AFT Film Awards include the traditional Oscar categories and a number of additional specific honors. Nominees are pictured in the order in which I’ve ranked them, and I include runners-up this year since I wish I could include all ten since this was a great year for animation! Click here to see previous years of this category.

Big Hero 6
The Lego Movie
The Book of Life
The Boxtrolls
How to Train Your Dragon 2

The winner:
The Wind Rises was an exquisite, imaginative chronicle of one young man’s exploration of his passion in a most unexpected setting with beautiful animation to illustrate that.

Other nominees:
Mr. Peabody and Sherman
Rocks in My Pockets
Song of the Sea
The Tale of the Princess Kaguya
