The 2017 Oscar nominees: Breaking down the Best Animated Feature raceThe 2017 Oscar nominees: Breaking down the Best Animated Feature raceJenny Bullough2/16/2017 10:01:00 Am The race for the Best Animated Feature Oscar isn't usually one that gets a lot of attention, partly because it's seemed like Disney/Pixar has had a lock on the award for as long as anyone can remember. This year, however, there are some very serious contenders for the coveted statue, and with Finding Dory -- Pixar's biggest movie of 2016 -- surprisingly left off the list of nominees, just two of the nominated films are from the Mouse House.  Will the two nominated Disney features split votes causing an outlier to win the statue? To help you win your Oscar pool, or just make predictions for the fun of it, we're breaking down the nominees for Best Animated Feature film. Kubo and the Two Strings Praised by »

‘Zootopia’ Helmers Byron Howard, Rich Moore on Their Timely, Subversive Toon

15 February 2017 3:49 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One of the smartest and most subversive movies in the Oscar race this year comes in an unexpected package — that of a Disney animated film featuring adorable animals who tackle such weighty issues as racism, sexism, and governing through fear. “Zootopia” was helmed by Byron Howard and Rich Moore (with co-director Jared Bush), who also developed the story, with a screenplay by Jared Bush and Phil Johnston.

In the film, Judy Hopps (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin) sets out to be the first rabbit police officer, only to team up with a con artist fox (voiced by Jason Bateman) to solve the mystery of why some animals are turning feral. The serious subject matter is cleverly buoyed by humor, such as when Hopps explains to a cheetah, “You probably didn’t know, but a bunny can call another bunny cute, but when other animals do it, it’s a little…”

‘Zootopia’: How Disney Anticipated Trump’s America With That Ice Cream Scene (Exclusive Video)

14 February 2017 12:00 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The zeitgeist-grabbing “Zootopia” continues to resonate with even greater relevance nearly a year after its release — and less than a month after the divisive Trump election.

And for directors Byron Howard and Rich Moore, an early scene in an ice cream parlor best epitomizes the topical theme of racial bigotry between predator and prey. It’s the crucial first meeting between rookie bunny cop, Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin), and sly fox, Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman), who pulls a con while pretending to order ice cream for his young son (watch the video below).

“Phil [Johnston] and Jared [Bush] wrote a great scene as a nice way of introducing the idea that roles were a little messed up with the bias, especially Judy in the way she handles it personally,” Howard told IndieWire. “That’s the first time after we »

Oscars 2017 Animated Features: Disney Scores Two With ‘Zootopia’ and ‘Moana’

24 January 2017 11:32 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the most competitive animation Oscar race ever, the power of Disney still prevailed, with both “Zootopia” and “Moana” making the cut. They were joined by “Kubo and the Two Strings,”(Laika’s fourth nom), “My Life as a Zucchini” (Gkids’ ninth nom), and the Studio Ghibli co-production, “The Red Turtle.”

However, Disney was the only major studio represented, with Pixar’s “Finding Dory” sequel getting snubbed despite becoming the number one animated movie of all time. Also left out were Illuminaton’s “Sing” and DreamWorks’ “Trolls.”

But with so many international entries, the biggest question was how many would get nominated, considering how inclusive the multi-branch animated feature film committee has been in recent years. Two other prime contenders were both Japanese hand-drawn movies: the body-switching hit, “Your Name” (honored by »

Oscars: Pixar Shut Out of Animated Feature Category

24 January 2017 9:08 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tuesday morning’s Oscar nominations for best animated film skewed towards Disney Animation, stop-motion films,  the international and the quirky — but Disney’s Pixar saw a rare shutout in the animated feature film category.

Finding Dory,” Pixar’s blockbuster that grossed over $1 billion worldwide, was not among the nominees.

Moana” and “Zootopia” led the charge for Disney Animation, which scored two nods in the category.

Pixar has dominated the animation category since 2004, when “Finding Nemo” won the Emeryville-based company’s first Oscar. Other winners include “The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille,” “Wall-e,” “Up,” “Toy Story 3,”  “Brave” and last year’s winner “Inside Out.”

Pixar did receive a nomination on Tuesday for animated short “Piper,” which played before “Finding Dory.”

Only 17% of Rogue One Dialogue Is Spoken by a Female Character

20 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A lot has been made bout the fact that both Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One have female lead characters, but a new study shows that might not be all it's cracked up to be. While both of these latest entries in the Star Wars franchise do have strong women as protagonist, both movies are still quite male heavy. Even lopsided. A new study shows that only 17% of the dialogue in Rogue One is spoken by one of the movies few female characters.

Jyn Erso led Rogue One to becoming the highest grossing movie in the U.S., no small feat that Felicity Jones helped push the movie to the top the box office as the face of this first Star Wars anthology movie. The prequel was also praised for its diverse cast. But diving deeper into the story elements, and what actually happens on screen shows »

6 January 2017 4:47 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Showbiz veterans like Clint Eastwood, Martin Scorsese, and Denzel Washington mingled with reps of New Hollywood such as Barry Jenkins, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, and Andrew Garfield at the 17th AFI Awards luncheon Friday afternoon at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills.

The mixture of longtime figures and newbies was also reflected in the TV honorees, as NBC (the sole broadcast network repped) was side by side with relative newcomers Netflix and Espn Films, and with TV fare ranging from reliables like “Game of Thrones” to the new “This Is Us” and “Stranger Things.”

AFI announced its 21 honorees last month, with 10 films and 10 TV shows cited as “outstanding creative endeavors” during 2016; there was also one special award, to Espn Films’ “O.J.: Made in America.” The big winners, with three apiece, were Paramount (“Arrival,” “Fences,” and “Silence”), FX (“The Americans,” “Atlanta,” and “The People v.

How Disney’s Animated ‘Zootopia’ Became the Galvanizing Movie of 2016

3 January 2017 1:30 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Zootopia” directors Byron Howard and Rich Moore are still flabbergasted by the global success of their animated Oscar frontrunner. But as difficult as it was to believably create an anthropomorphic society shared by predator and prey alike, it was even harder to convincingly capture the zeitgeist of fear, prejudice and inclusion.

“It was really a juicy thing to talk about, but could we do that with an animated film, should we do that with an animated film?” asked Howard, who pitched and created “Zootopia.”

“And the more we researched it and the more we talked to our experts on bias and discrimination, we realized this was an incredible thing we should be looking at,” Howard told IndieWire. “Disney films especially are good at that. Our producer, Clark Spencer, reminded us that ‘The Lion King’ gave parents and children a wonderful opportunity to talk about death. And I remember being shocked »
