Way of Animation towards Oscar

In the Film industry, Animation is considered one of the toughest areas. It can take more than a few years for an animation film to be finalized and carried to theater screens. Animation is one of the hot topics that have been conversed for years. Earlier animation was considered as an entertainment medium only for kids why there used to be a disregard for it. But we all know the fact that both kids as well as adults both love animation equally. Animation is helpful to amplify movement, duplicate live-action, and generate new and exciting outlines. Animation is one of the most challenging and versatile parts of cinematography, that is why increasingly adults are giving it additional credit instead of disregarding it as kid amusement.

Zootopia, Finding Dory, and the R-rated Sausage party dominated the box office in 2016. But still, animated movies are not getting much acknowledgment from the film industry.

Despite the fact the Best Animated Feature award category was applauded and admired, could its introduction at the Academy award actually be restrictive the possibility of animations movies receiving the topmost award?
The addition of the Best Animated Feature group has assured animations will endure being recognized at the Oscars. But according to some critics, the introduction of this award has actually stalled animation, in a way that lets the Oscar evade nominating them in the Best Picture category.
Till now there is a total of three animation movies that are nominated for the Best picture out of that 2 were nominated as Best Animated Feature Category.

• In 1992, Beauty and the Beast was nominated for Best Picture
• Up was nominated as Best Picture in 2010

But in 2017 not a single animated movie was nominated for Academy Awards. This year, Disney’s Moana and Zootopia both missed out on Best picture nomination.

Future of Animation

The development in new animation techniques and technologies will help to generate more life-like animated characters which will result in more amazingly innovative animated movies. The solution of the overall issue about the nomination of animated film in Academy award can be that the animated film should compete with live-action film i.e. in Best Picture Category. The Oscar voters should treat both films equally and not discriminate.
