2019 Oscar Predictions – Best Animated Feature

The Best Animated Feature Film category can sometimes be tricky. You can almost always be sure of a Pixar nominee. Usually a Disney picture is present. One or two foreign films sneak into the race. But sometimes a front-runner is hard to pin down. Putting your money on Pixar is not always a sure-thing.

And this year, in particular, the crop of films is particularly strong.

The Academy generally does a good job of reserving at least one spot in their Best Animated Feature category for an international picture. This year, there is potential for a number of international films to break the top five. However, there are also a lot of Hollywood pictures that the Academy may want to boast.

2018 Golden Globes Predictions – Best Animated Feature

When it comes to predicting the winners at the 2018 Golden Globes, Best Motion Picture – Animated is the easiest place to start. Even with a film like The LEGO Batman Movie snubbed for the likes of The Boss Baby and Ferdinand, the category is the most clear-cut and predictable of the lot.
