Oscar-Nominated Animated Feature

The Oscars are this Sunday! About the only other category I have seen more than half of the nominees is in the full-length animated features. Here are my picks:

"Inside Out" - It's from Disney/Pixar and my pick for winner. I loved the animation and the plot. To me it is just like "Up" from several years ago where you can have an animated movie for kids, but at the same time have an intelligent plot that can be appreciated by adults as well.

"Shaun the Sheep Movie" - Aardman animation is almost always great. I discovered the "Shaun the Sheep" short on Netflix and thoroughly enjoyed it. Of course the movie gets lots of furry points. Definitely worth a rental.

"When Marnie Was There" - This year's entry from Studio Ghibli. I'm pretty much burned out when it comes to anime. I have had my fill of the likes of "Howl's Moving Castle" and "Princess Mononoke." I know that will get the ire of most anime fans, but quite frankly I hate the "Oh let's just make up some random shit" when it comes to so many anime films. I know. I just don't get "it." So sue me. With that being said, I found this movie to be the most "accessible" when it comes to story/plot. I actually enjoyed it!

"Anomalisa" - Didn't see it. It looks like creepy stop motion stuff. I heard it took all day just to film a second or 2. There's also supposed to be a puppet sex scene. Hopefully not like "Team America." *lol* I'll let you know about it when it becomes available on Netflix.

"Boy and the World" - Didn't see it. Once again, I'll review it when it makes it into my Netflix queue.

Anybody out there see the last 2?
