We have a strong animated category this year, including 2 Disney nominations in Zootopia and Moana alongside Studio Ghibli’s co-produced The Red Turtle. There are also two stop-motion animated picks from Kubo and the Two Strings, which picked up the statuette at the BAFTAs against both of Disney’s picks, and My Life as a Zucchini.
Our predictions and further analysis are below:
Despite Kubo‘s win at the BAFTAs, Zootopia still seems like the pick for the Oscars after winning at the Golden Globes, ACE Eddies, PGAs, and getting 6 wins at the Annie awards for animation.
- “Kubo and the Two Strings”
- “My Life as a Zucchini”
- “The Red Turtle”
