Zootopia Defies Rules; Animated Film Possible Candidate for Oscars
Zootopia becomes the leader of the pack, at least, when it comes to the Annie Awards. Disney’s quirky film has received 11 nominations from the awards-giving body. So, does this serve as a sign that it will also snag an Oscar?
These days, Cartoons makes so much more than what kids used to watch on Saturday mornings. The animated film industry has thrived over the years and these movies also bring serious money to studios’ coffers. And of course, the creative aspect of these films deserves an honor.
The Annie Awards are given for excellence in film animation and Zootopia certainly has that in spades. Deadline reported that the film received the most nominations with 11 while Kubo And The Two Strings came in second with 10. The two films are in the running for Best Animated Feature along with Finding Dory, Kung Fu Panda 3 and the just released Moana.
Will Zootopia Win Big at the Oscars?
Aside from the Best Animated Feature nomination, Zootopia also received nominations in the individual achievement categories for Animated Effects, Character Animation and Character Design in an Animated Feature.
So far, 2016 makes a very good year for animated films, with an impressive 27 films qualifying for the Oscar. Among them are Finding Dory, Moana, The Little Prince and Trolls. Incidentally, the Annie Awards is also a good predictor for who will win big at the Oscars.
Zootopia’s 11 nominations is pretty impressive, considering the difficulties the film encountered. It is certainly Disney’s most ambitious film so far, revolving around a police officer and a con artist who are trying to uncover a conspiracy in the metropolis. While the plot might seem familiar, the fact that the two characters are portrayed by a rabbit and a red fox is not and only something that Zootopia can pull off.
