Well, the (second time in a row) hostless 92nd Academy Awards have come and went! My score this year was the same as last year: 14/24. I sadly didn’t beat my record of 17/24, but one day!
In terms of animation, Toy Story 4 won Best Animated Feature and Hair Love won Best Animated Short.

Once again, it’s time for the Oscars! Below are my predictions for the 92nd Academy Awards! The ones that I think SHOULD win will be in RED, the ones that I think WILL win will be in BLUE, and if they’re both the same, they will be both RED AND BLUE. I have left my picks for Best Animated Feature, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Picture for the end. Let me know your thoughts!

The 92nd Academy Award nominations have been announced and I will release my predictions sometime in the upcoming weeks. Until then, here are the animation-related nominees:
BEST ANIMATED FEATURE FILM:
How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
I Lost My Body
Toy Story 4
BEST ANIMATED SHORT FILM:
Also both Toy Story 4 and Frozen II have been nominated for Best Original Song for I Can’t Let You Throw Yourself Away and Into the Unknown, respectively.
The biggest thing that stands out from these nominees is the fact that Frozen II wasn’t nominated for Best Animated Feature and honestly, while I’m surprised by that, I’m also happy that it wasn’t.

The teaser trailer for Warner Animation Group’s upcoming film, Scoob!, has been released!
What do you all think of the trailer? I’m glad to finally see an animated Scooby-Doo film released in theaters! I don’t know what to make of Zac Efron, Amanda Seyfried, Gina Rodriguez, and Will Forte voicing the Mystery Inc. gang though.
The prolific voice actress, Russi Taylor, most famous for being the official voice of Disney’s Minnie Mouse has sadly passed away at the age of 75.
I wrote a longer tribute to Mrs. Taylor (1944-2019) on the Rotoscopers website which you can view here.
She shall surely be missed!
The teaser trailer for Pixar’s upcoming animated film, Onward, has debuted and man, do I love it!
I love the world it creates with mythical creatures we know and love! I love the idea that the troll brothers are going on some quest! I love the double moons and the unicorn pests! I can’t wait for March 6, 2020!
The film will be directed by Dan Scanlon (Monsters University) and feature the voice talents of Chris Pratt, Tom Holland, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Octavia Spencer.
