Oscar nominees Best Animated Feature 2014
Earlier today this article was brought to my attention, in which it becomes clear that some of the Academy voters have little to no respect for the animation industry. They openly admit not having watched the nominated films and/or claiming that animated films are for kids, so they didn’t vote. Even the ones shown in the article that did vote barely motivated their choice.
I find this extremely disrespectful of the animators who poured their heart and soul into making these movies, only to have their work be pushed aside without a second glance by the judges of one of the most prominent and well known film awards out there. As an aspiring animator, I am deeply insulted.
Please note that in this post I am expressing no opinion on whether Frozen should have won or not. I think it’s a wonderful film, just as all the other nominees. I am simply saying that we deserve better.
What they did is disrespectful to the creators of every single one of these films, even Frozen. By barely motivating their choice, they make it look like they voted for Frozen simply because of Disney’s status in the industry. Because it’s Disney, and it made a lot of money, so it had to be at least somewhat good. To me it seems like some of the voters just defaulted to voting for the Disney film, and nobody likes to win by default.
Don’t get me wrong, I too have been guilty of loving Disney simply because it’s Disney, but there is so much more beautiful animation out there and it deserves to be taken into consideration. And if Frozen won, it should have won because the majority of the voters thought it was the best film, not because part of the voters was too lazy to even watch the nominated films.

I had those words stuck in my head all day long. I suspected I dreamed it, but I’m not sure. Weird …
Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood surely is ironic.
A demonstration for the construction of an airport degenerated into a riots today in Nantes (France). I never thought this could ever happen in my city, I’m really shocked…
i have a feeling a lot of people wont like this direction for her mask, but i wanted to keep it simple, avoiding the domino mask for now being i feel its more Bat-family oriented. I dont believe she’s under the bat group yet at this point, though, I could be wrong. Here’s hoping DC will use this design down the road.
i also should mention she shouldn’t really be this shiny.. my computer coloring skills are pretty limited and this is the only way i know how to color sketches. i like matte finishes a lot.
