In just 10 days, on February 26, the Oscars will be presented in Los Angeles. Members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences have started their final voting.
The animation categories were more competitive than ever this season; both the features and shorts categories had a record-number of contending films. This is the new reality of animation, a booming (and blooming) art form. While every year won’t be a record-setting one, the Academy can expect in the future many more worthy contenders from all corners of the globe.
Below, you’ll find Cartoon Brew’s coverage of the films in the three Academy Award categories that we regularly cover: animated feature films, animated shorts, and vfx. Stay tuned for additional coverage of some of these films between now and next weekend’s ceremony.
