Oscar Nominees: Best Animated Feature

My predictions: 3/5, picking “The Good Dinosaur” and “Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet” over “Boy and the World” and “When Marnie Was There”
My ballot: Come back in February!
The nominees: Anomalisa, Boy and the World, Inside Out, Shaun the Sheep Movie, When Marnie Was There

Here we have one of the biggest and most unexpected snubs of the year – “The Good Dinosaur” didn’t make the cut, which is a real shame. It’s not a great testament to American animation with dialogue for children, as “Inside Out” is the only conventional choice this year. I don’t think “Boy and the World” needed to be here, and I have to see “When Marnie Was There” as soon as I have the chance. “Shaun the Sheep Movie” is a good choice, and it’s also good to have “Anomalisa” represented. More on this category once I’ve seen all the nominees, but unfortunate to see a good film miss the cut.

My current bet to win: How can it not be Inside Out?
