Top 10 Movies of 2017 that Should Be Nominated for Best Animated Feature at the 2018 Oscars

As the Oscars 2018 approach, 26 animated films have been submitted to the Oscars to see if they qualify (a lot I never heard of) and only 5 will be nominated. Which of these movies do you think should be nominated?

The Top Ten

1 Coco

It doesn't come out in the US until later this month, but in Mexico where it was already released, it received ASTOUNDING praise which is what makes me excited for this. This will definitely get a nomination too since Pixar and Disney usually get them. - Phillip873

Unless The Lego Batman Movie wins, Coco without a doubt has this in the bag. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Either this or Lego Batman is gonna win it - Randomator

Can’t wait to see this at Disneyland on Saturday! - MegaSoulhero

I'm going to Disneyland this Sunday, are there any showings there that day? - Phillip873

2 The Lego Batman Movie

Unpopular opinion: I think this movie was lousy. Batman's one-dimensional arrogance got old quick and made him uninteresting while the explosion of pop-culture references (not counting the great references made to earlier Batman films) felt like a distraction that was meant to make us forget that the whole third act of the film wasn't interesting. Basically, the opening of the film was great and then the movie ran out of steam. I didn't even bother with 'The Lego Ninjago Movie' after the reviews made it sound like this film all over again. - BKAllmighty

So far this is my favorite animated movie of the year, though Coco comes soon, and I definitely think it deserves a nomination, ESPECIALLY after "The Lego Movie" didn't even though it is one of my favorites of all time! - Phillip873

I really hope this gets nominated. I’m still angry that the Lego Movie didn’t get nominated. - MegaSoulhero

Right, I usually go for Disney and Pixar for good animation, but the Lego Movie is an exception and it became one of my absolute favorites! - Phillip873

3 Cars 3

This movie was pretty good, and I do see it getting nominated because Pixar. - Phillip873

4 Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

It was surprisingly-decent, I'd say. I was expecting it to be terrible until the reviews convinced me to give it a go. The film was definitely designed to appeal primarily to kids but I enjoyed it, for the most part. A fun distraction, if nothing more. - BKAllmighty

I haven't watched it but lots of people think it is good. - Phillip873

5 Loving Vincent

It's considered the first fully-painted animated feature film. For setting a milestone in animation like that, Loving Vincent deserves a good spot at nomination for this first in animation history. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I never heard of it, except on Reddit, and people say it's good - Phillip873

6 A Silent Voice

Ordinal Scale was great, but I think the anime movie most likely to take the nomination would be A Silent Voice. I haven't seen it (nor do I have yet to see Ordinal Scale, unfortunately), but it's themes of bullying in society and how it's able to craft a touching story based on it should guarantee it a nomination out of all the other 5 anime entries. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I really hope this movie wins, or at least gets nominated. I've actually seen part of it, and it's beautiful. I hope the judges give this masterpiece a chance. - Absolite

Same reason as "Loving Vincent", never heard of it except on Reddit where it was praised - Phillip873

7 Ferdinand

It's coming soon, and it would probably qualify most likely, I don't really have an opinion on it - Phillip873

8 The Lego Ninjago Movie

Just needed another entry, it got mixed reviews. - Phillip873

After TLBM I thought twice about seeing this one. If it ever hits Netflix, perhaps I'll watch it. - BKAllmighty

9 Smurfs: The Lost Village

Got mixed reviews, I just need entries for the list. - Phillip873

10 Sword Art Online the Movie: Ordinal Scale

Not sure if this has happened before, but an anime movie based off an existing anime franchise got submitted for this year's Oscars. The movie itself actually has good reviews (I wish it were the same for the anime series), so I think it deserves a spot on this list. Wow, even as an SAO fan myself, I'm pleasantly surprised it got considered for the Oscars. Eh, don't think any movie is going to snub Coco anytime soon. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The Contenders

11 Mary and the Witch's Flower

Eh, not bad for Studio Ponoc's first feature film. Haven't seen it though, but it looks good based on the visuals and the trailer for it. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

12 In This Corner of the World

I've never seen it myself, but the premise is very gripping with its fictional yet realistic portrayal of life in Japan before and after the Hiroshima bombing. I can expect this to be a huge Tear Jerker with lots of touching moments that will capture both starkly contrasting sides of Japan's serenely traditional and natural lifestyle and the more violent atrocities committed by the Japanese soldiers. This and A Silent Voice are right up there for the anime movies that deserve nomination the most. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

13 The Boss Baby

Yeah... No way is this going to get nominated. Well, time to start voting Ordinal Scale and Witch's Flower up! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This movie is bad, but it's Dreamworks, so anything could happen - Phillip873

Not going to happen - Randomator

Considering Shark Tale got nominated, it wouldn’t surprise me if this gets nominated. - MegaSoulhero

14 Napping Princess

Directed by the same person who worked on Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and Eden of the East. I'm very intrigued by how the movie explores the concept of how technology continues to evolve and advance in our society, so I might see it whenever I get the chance. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

15 The Emoji Movie

You know what I was expecting some troll to submit this sooner or later. - Phillip873

LOL Was I Drunk When I Added This

The Worst Movie Ever

The 'Emojinal' tone will surely win over everyone. - DapperPickle

V 1 Comment
16 The Breadwinner
17 Despicable Me 3 Despicable Me 3

It should at least get nominated. - darthvadern

Take it off the list

18 Birdboy: The Forgotten Children
19 Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie

This movie is definitely going to be good, but I'm afraid it shouldn't be on this list. Why? The Jungle Movie is a T.V. movie. This list is meant for animated FEATURE films that had THEATRICAL releases. So unfortunately, The Jungle Movie wouldn't make it on the list under normal circumstances. Still hyped up for it, though. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Now I Added Something that's Truly Good (I Only Added The Emoji Movie Irronicaly)

Ops, Sorry

20 The Star

LOL no
