Live-action Disney movies and how we devalue animation

Published on :

Spider-Man  Into The Spider-Verse was the best movie of 2018 (don’t @ me), and yet it wasn’t nominated, let alone even considered, for Best Picture at the Oscars earlier this year. This is no parts shocking, of course, because in the 91 years that the Academy has been delegating awards, there have only been three instances where an animated movie was nominated for Best Picture: Beauty and the Beast (1991), Up (2009), Toy Story 3 (2010). Let that sink in for a second. Out of the 554 movies nominated for Best Picture over the course of 91 years, a staggering THREE were animated.
