And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"
I know I'm far from the target audience now, but Toy Story 3 was terrible and Toy Story 4 seems even worse. I don't know how those can win anything. I have fond memories of the original two though, which might partially just be nostalgia but idk.Apollo the Just wrote: ↑Fri Jan 17, 2020 6:12 pmAnimated Feature is tough for me because this is the first time I think one of the HTTYD movies has a shot at winning, but I'm not sure if I really think it should. Its animation IS really gorgeous, but it is kind of an awkward resolution to the movie trilogy because I think it made the unfortunate decision of trying to parallel the book series ending even though the movies were going in a vastly different direction; so as a standalone movie it is kind of solidly "fine". To be fair, I don't think the Animated Feature category itself even knows whether it is specifically about the animation or the entire feature including narrative merit etc, so.
Honestly I think Abominable was overall a better animated feature than HTTYD 3 was, not that it really matters as it wasn't nominated and wouldn't have won.
anyway this concludes my takes on the only category i kind of care about, except not really because if toy story **** 3 can win over httyd 1 the category means **** all
edit: actually now that i remembered toy story 4 has the nomination as well i want httyd to win because it is what should have happened 8 years ago. that said. i really hope laika or klaus gets it as both are so much more fresh in the current climate of animation. although i will be honest this year's laika release was not as appealing to me as their last several aesthetically, it is still more interesting than toy story **** 4.
