Oscar Circuit: Animated Feature


Our look at the individual Oscar categories continue.  If you missed a piece, click on the tag titled Oscar Circuit 2014.  You can also see the official Oscar Predictions page for Best Animated Feature.

This is a great year for Disney Animation, though not so great for Pixar.  Frozen has all but locked up the award for Best Animated Feature, and deservedly so. But Monster’s University didn’t even find itself nominated this year, unusual for a company that is used to raking in the awards.

But before we declare Frozen the winner, let’s take a look at all of the nominees:

  • “The Croods” – Chris Sanders, Kirk DeMicco and Kristine Belson
  • “Despicable Me 2” – Chris Renaud, Pierre Coffin and Chris Meledandri
  • “Ernest & Celestine” – Benjamin Renner and Didier Brunner
  • “Frozen” – Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee and Peter Del Vecho
  • “The Wind Rises” – Hayao Miyazaki and Toshio Suzuki
