2018 Oscar Predictions –

ANIMATED FEATURE

(UPDATED – JUNE 2, 2017)

With the Academy changing its rules to open voting to the entire membership for the nominations, this really puts those “foreign” or “outsider” studios at a disadvantage.  The Academy has been known to surprise for us from time to time.  Perhaps they make that extra effort to watch the films from GKIDS and not just default to the American studios.  With that said, “Coco” seems like the defacto frontrunner for the moment.
