93rd Academy Awards Results!

Well, the (third time in a row) hostless 93rd Academy Awards have come and went! Not to mention that this was the first Academy Awards ceremony during the COVID pandemic.

My score this year was 15/23. (Since they’ve merged the Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing categories, there are now only 23 categories rather than 24.) My record still stands at 17/24!

In terms of animation, Soul won Best Animated Feature and If Anything Happens I Love You won Best Animated Short.

Upcoming Animated Films in 2021

Well, 2020 was some year, huh? Not only did it affect our lives, health, politics, society, etc.; it also affected our film industry. Cinemas were closed for most of the year resulting in many theatrical films being relegated to streaming services or postponed until 2021.

We can all hope 2021 will be a better year, in every respect. To keep our spirits up, let’s take a look at the upcoming animated films set to be released in 2021. Keep in mind that I’ll only be talking about films with set release dates and that I won’t be talking about any live-action/animated hybrid films (like Tom and Jerry, Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway, Space Jam: A New Legacy, and Clifford the Big Red Dog).

So sit back, relax, and enjoy this list with me!

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
