Pixar’s critically acclaimed “Inside Out” and box office hit “Minions” are among the 16 films submitted for consideration for this year’s Best Animated Feature Oscar, organizers said Thursday.
“Inside Out,” an animated look at the mind of a pre-teen girl, received nearly universal rave reviews, with some even suggesting it could compete for Best Picture at the 88th Academy Awards in February.
“Minions,” a prequel in the “Despicable Me” series, has been a huge hit for Universal, raking in more than $335 million worldwide, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com.
Also on the list are other crowd pleasers such as “Hotel Transylvania 2”, as well as movies yet to be released, like Pixar’s “The Good Dinosaur.”
According to the rules of the Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Sciences, in any year in which 16 films are eligible, a maximum of five can be nominated.
Oscar nominations are to be announced on January 14. The Oscars ceremony is set for February 28.
Past winners in the category include “Frozen” and “Toy Story 3.”
