This morning saw the 2015 Oscar nominees announced.  I was completely unprepared, and I hadn't even collected the list of animated films for the year, let alone analyze any of them.

However, this year, why bother?  There is no question, none at all, which movie is going to win.

Inside Out.

Pixar outclassed everyone else (including itself) in 2015 with this fim.  The only real suprise is that Inside Out didn't also pick up a Best Picture nomination.  Not that it was going to win there, but still.

Anywho, here is the list of nominee, in case you were wondering:

Boy and the World
Inside Out
Shaun the Sheep Movie
When Marnie Was There

I mean, look at this list. One indie, barely released in time to qualify (hoping for Oscar buzz in increase interest and viewship when it moves to wide release), three non-US films, and Pixar's Inside Out.  Do you really think Dreamworks and Disney and a couple of the other studios could have failed to get their films nominated if they had decided to get out and push?  The Peanuts Movie, for the nostalgia value alone, or Minions: The Movie, just because.  Heck, I wonder if Dreamworks pushed back the production schedule of Kung Fu Panda 3 so that it wouldn't be released the same year as Inside Out.  February is an odd time for marquee titles to be released, and I would have thought KFP3 would have been an ideal movie for a Christmas release (aside from the whole competing against Star Wars: The Force Awakens).  The winner is usually pretty clear, but they like to pretend.  And this year, there is no pretending.

Inside Out.
