92nd Academy Awards Nominations Announced!

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
Klaus
Missing Link
Toy Story 4

BEST ANIMATED SHORT FILM:
Dcera (Daughter)
Hair Love
Kitbull
Memorable
Sister

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.

What do you think of the nominees? Let me know in the comments below!

Voice Actress, Russi Taylor, Dies at 75

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!

My Thoughts: RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET (2018)

In 2018, Disney gave us a sequel that apparently people wanted to see. I was never a fan of the first Wreck-It Ralph film, so I wasn’t enthusiastic about a sequel. Nevertheless, I checked out this sequel directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston in theaters! Did I feel that Ralph Breaks the Internet was a better film than its predecessor? Read to to find out!

WARNING: There will be spoilers!!

My 91st Academy Awards Predictions!

Once again, it’s Oscars season! Listed below are my predictions for the winners of this year’s 91st Academy Awards ceremony! Like usual, I leave the top 6 awards for the end (Best Animated Feature, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Picture). The nominees that I think SHOULD win will be in red, the nominees that I think WILL win will be in blue, and if they’re the same, they will be both red and blue. Enjoy and let me know what you think in the comments below!

‘Frozen II’ Teaser Trailer Debuts!

We finally get our first teaser trailer for Disney’s upcoming animated sequel, Frozen II! What do you think of this trailer?

I personally am loving what I’m seeing! The overall look of the film is quite distinct and I’m loving the stunning animation! I mean, those waves and cliffs look so real! I also liked the bit of the song that we heard near the end!

The characters seem to be going on a journey, but I wonder what the journey will be. Any ideas?

I still don’t want them to give Elsa a girlfriend in this film; I’d rather her remain single.

Frozen II will hit theaters in the U.S. on November 22, 2019!
