Top Ten Movies That Deserved to Win an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature But Didn't

Sure, they didn't win the Oscar, but they were deserving nonetheless. Of course, not every nominee can be a winner and often enough the competition is very stiff. This list compiles the animated movies that deserved to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.

The Top Ten

1 Wreck-It Ralph Wreck-It Ralph Product Image

This lost to Brave... In other words, it lost to one of Pixar's weaker movies in its catalog. Which is kind of sad, considering Disney managed to finally craft a successful and beloved computer-animated film made by Walt Disney Animation Studios themselves instead of relying on Pixar all the time for computer-animated movies.

Was better than brave at everything, sadly the academy chose brave because it was a Pixar movie

I like this movie

This movie is 100000 times better than Brave.

2 Monsters, Inc. Monsters, Inc. Product Image
3 How to Train Your Dragon 2 How to Train Your Dragon 2 Product Image

How to Train Your Dragon 2 deserved the Oscar

Certainlt great movie but its competition was tough.My favourite movie.Yet Toy Story 3 was critically superior.It was hoping that if HTTYD can win.

1. BETTER ANIMATION
2. BETTER SOUNDTRACK

EVERYTHING ABOUT THE AMAZING MASTERPIECE IS 100000000000000000000% WAY BETTER THAN THAT PIECE OF TRASH SHREK IS!

Jimmy Neutron losing to Shrek was The Oscar's BIGGEST MISTAKE! Jimmy Neutron has an original story, NOT a reverse version of another film like Shrek had.
