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 Coco Product Image

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

Why not? Almost any Pixar film will surely win - Neonco31

Either this or Lego Batman is gonna win it - Randomator

2 The Lego Batman Movie The Lego Batman Movie Product Image

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

Well, the nominations are in. And the nominees are: The Breadwinner, Loving Vincent, Coco, The Boss Baby, and Ferdinand. Great, Lego Batman got snubbed over The Boss Baby and Ferdinand? I mean, Ferdinand isn't a bad movie, but there were a lot more animated movies that deserved the two spots more than The Boss Baby and Ferdinand. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I think Coco, Loving Vincent, and The Breadwinner are the only good nominations. The Boss Baby didn't deserve to be nominated at all, and while Ferdinand isn't terrible, it's not really something to write home about as a Blue Sky Studios film and animated feature in general. So yeah, bummed out that Lego Batman got snubbed and no anime movie got nominated as well. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

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'm not surprised this movie didn't get nominated, don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed this movie, but considering The Lego Movie didn't get nominated at the 2015 Oscars, I thought that this and The Lego Ninjago Movie would not be nominated for this year's Oscars. I'm just glad that The Emoji Movie wasn't nominated.

3 Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie Product Image

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

4 Cars 3 Cars 3 Product Image

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

Yes, It Needs To Be Nominated. - masoncarr2244

5 My Little Pony: The Movie My Little Pony: The Movie Product Image

While critics were quite harsh on it and it got mixed reviews at best, I can see why most people wanted My Little Pony: The Movie to be considered for the Oscars. Only one problem with this item's submission: it was never submitted as one of the 26 movies chosen to be considered for this year's Oscar nominees. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news if any MLP fan is reading this. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

6 A Silent Voice A Silent Voice Product Image

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

This movie needs to be nominated, it was amazing. It's the most mature film of the year and discusses bullying itself but also redemption and how it can be achieved. My 5 picks to be nominated at the oscars are this movie, coco, loving vincent, breadwinner and the Lego batman movie - Ale99

It's a shame that this and none of the other anime movies submitted were nominated for the 90th Academy Awards. Goes to show that the Oscars really need to make a separate category exclusively for Japanese animated feature films. - 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

7 Loving Vincent Loving Vincent Product Image

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

8 Ferdinand Ferdinand Product Image

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

9 Sword Art Online the Movie: Ordinal Scale Sword Art Online the Movie: Ordinal Scale Product Image

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

10 The Breadwinner The Breadwinner Product Image

The Contenders

11 Smurfs: The Lost Village Smurfs: The Lost Village Product Image

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

12 The Lego Ninjago Movie The Lego Ninjago Movie Product Image

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

13 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

14 In This Corner of the World In This Corner of the World Product Image

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

15 Napping Princess Napping Princess Product Image

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

16 Despicable Me 3 Despicable Me 3 Product Image

It should at least get nominated.

17 Your Name Your Name Product Image
18 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

19 The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales...
20 Birdboy: The Forgotten Children
21 The Emoji Movie The Emoji Movie Product Image

You mean, the greatest masterpiece of a movie with compelling characters that are relatable and have so much emotion, and an unpredictable and life changing plot.

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

Lol ain't gonna happen

Nope. Don't even know why it's even in the top 10. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

22 The Star The Star Product Image
23 Journey Beyond Sodor Journey Beyond Sodor Product Image

I'm Not Sure If This Will Get Nominated, I Always Thought Thomas And Friends Movies Never Get Nominated.

24 The Boss Baby The Boss Baby Product Image

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

Not going to happen - Randomator

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

Apparently, it got nominated for an Annie... Hopefully, that won't be the case for the Oscars... - ModernSpongeBobSucks
