Definitive Proof That Academy Voters Are Ignorant About Animation
Those of us in animation always gripe that the rest of Hollywood doesn’t care or know the first thing about animated films. There are tons of anecdotal stories to support this position, but finally, we’ve got some definitive proof. And if you think Hollywood doesn’t understand animation, it’s even worse than you could imagine.
AAHAHAHA OH MY GOD
It’s… I’m literally about to cry…
Oh wow… only two of those reasons (2 & 7) actually made sense to me. If you didn’t see all the nominees, then why vote? Yeah, I actually get that, but all the other reasons… WTF? Did you not even approach this category with a logical perspective??? Dafuq is wrong with you Academy people???
No offense to Frozen, but I felt The Wind Rises should have won. The film itself actually has adult elements in it (not to say Frozen doesn’t either. I just felt The Wind Rises presented more elements that adults could relate to. I won’t say them here because I don’t want to spoil the film for anyone). In all honesty, to get the Academy Award people serious about the Animation category, there should be more films like The Wind Rises to grasp their attention. Either that or just clean fucking house and get people that actually possess logic and reason to vote in the category and verify that they actually watched all the films.
Wait, I just described Sherlock Holmes. Could you imagine if there were 7 Sherlock Holmes’ in one room, watching animated features? It would kinda be like Raven with all her emotions in one room, except it would be Sherlock and all his emotions in one room.
I saw The Wind Rises…
and it was beautiful. Go and see it if you get the chance. =)
