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

Much better than Brave

I like this movie

I’m honestly shocked that this movie didn’t win. So much effort was put into it and everything about this movie was impressive.

This movie is probably the most impressively-animated movie I’ve ever seen. The mix of stop-motion and cgi animation made it all the more impressive.

2014 winner: Big Hero 6

Actually, Big Hero 6 was better than this, but I loved this movie

I hate the oscars because they didn't even nominate this.

The Contenders

This studio’s movies are always an absolute and utter joy to watch. The story is beautiful, and the art. Oh, the art. At any time, you can pause this movie and have something picture-worthy. The nature designs and the lighthouse shots are incredible. The characters are likeablle as well.
