Just a little vent art.
Like everyone else, I am absolutely furious about how the Academy flat out disrespects animation. Here are countless artists and writers presenting you the work of their blood, sweat, and tears, and you don’t even bother to watch all of it and disregard it as ‘kid’s stuff’. How can you claim to represent motion picture art when you won’t even take one of the greatest innovative film techniques ever seriously.
How dare you.
I know right. The Academy voters must be those who know better on animation innovations and storytelling achievements from their experiences, or has a great respect and admiration for the medium. Not by those who just want to rush in and pick the one that the mainstream audience saw only.
While I’m glad Frozen won, I’m still a little peeved that it won the way it did. The other movies deserved a fair chance and shouldn’t have been just cast aside and ignored. I hope the current voters eventually get fired and are replaced by people who actually care about the animation industry.
