Top 10 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

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.

Much better than Brave

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

I like this movie

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

One of the best graphics ever seen. the relationship between the characters are so natural and real. I just never loved a movie this much

Was really amazing

4 How to Train Your Dragon
5 Coraline

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

6 Shrek 2
7 The Wind Rises

This movie is beautiful. Studio Ghibli deserves those awards because they put so much time and hard work into their movies, and they do movies for the art, not the money

8 Despicable Me 2
9 Fantastic Mr. Fox

This movie is fantastic! *no pun intended*

This movie is just plain unique.

10 Paranorman
The Contenders
11 Cars

That was a good movie: too bad they didn't win.

It is way better

It's was the best animated film of 2006, which was a horrible year for film industry

12 The Lego Movie

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

13 Song of the Sea

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.

14 Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
15 Kubo and the Two Strings
16 Moana

Lost to everyone's obsession with racism which of course manifested in the winner, Zootopia.

17 Ernest & Celestine
18 Monster House
19 The Simpsons Movie
20 Kung Fu Panda 2
21 Rise of the Guardians
22 The Tale of the Princess Kaguya
23 Despicable Me

I couldn't stop watching this movie. I couldn't stop laughing. Beyond clever and humorous!

24 Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius

Why it lost to Shrek? :( I love this movie I love Jimmy Neutron A LOT and the fact that didn't win an Oscar makes my heart broken I hate you Oscar the fisjh trash and Shrek the ogre nobody wanted him to win. 1 vote = 1 award And hug for Jimmy Neutron
