When a Pixar film is nominated for an Oscar, chances are it’s going to win. For proof, look at the Best Animated Feature category. In the 11 years since the Academy started handing out the award, a Pixar film has been nominated eight times. And out of those eight, it’s only lost twice.
In fact, this is the first year Pixar’s feature film, Cars 2, didn’t get nominated. They were, however, represented in the Best Animated Short category for the film La Luna. That’s a category Pixar has also won numerous times, but loses more often than not and such was the case this year. La Luna lost to a film called The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore directed by William Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg.
Is the film better than something from Pixar? Judge for youself. You can watch the short after the break. Read More »
