Oscar nominees Best Animated Feature 2014
Earlier today this article was brought to my attention, in which it becomes clear that some of the Academy voters have little to no respect for the animation industry. They openly admit not having watched the nominated films and/or claiming that animated films are for kids, so they didn’t vote. Even the ones shown in the article that did vote barely motivated their choice.
I find this extremely disrespectful of the animators who poured their heart and soul into making these movies, only to have their work be pushed aside without a second glance by the judges of one of the most prominent and well known film awards out there. As an aspiring animator, I am deeply insulted.
Please note that in this post I am expressing no opinion on whether Frozen should have won or not. I think it’s a wonderful film, just as all the other nominees. I am simply saying that we deserve better.
What they did is disrespectful to the creators of every single one of these films, even Frozen. By barely motivating their choice, they make it look like they voted for Frozen simply because of Disney’s status in the industry. Because it’s Disney, and it made a lot of money, so it had to be at least somewhat good. To me it seems like some of the voters just defaulted to voting for the Disney film, and nobody likes to win by default.
Don’t get me wrong, I too have been guilty of loving Disney simply because it’s Disney, but there is so much more beautiful animation out there and it deserves to be taken into consideration. And if Frozen won, it should have won because the majority of the voters thought it was the best film, not because part of the voters was too lazy to even watch the nominated films.
WHY DO THEY MAKE WOMEN JEANS WITHOUT POCKETS
I just got new pants and I went to put something in my pocket… but there aren’t any in the front except that stupid little “coin” one that doesn’t fit anything and there are some in the back what so it’s ok for me to sit on my keys but not to have a bulge in my front pocket? Someone please explain this to me
Now, that would be fine to have no pockets at all, maybe ascetically you prefer not having pockets and I respect that BUT THEY PUT FAKE ONES
I have never been so disappointed in pants
I guess it’s my own fault for not checking but I never considered that you would put FAKE POCKETS on jeans so I didn’t bother to check
New Images for Teen Titans GO! “Brain Food”. “Brain Food” airs Wednesday, March 5 on Cartoon Network
Beast Boy is tired of being the least intelligent of the Titans. When all of his efforts to get smart fail, he uses Raven’s spell book to cast a spell — not to make himself smarter, but to make all of the other Titans dumber.
Made that for the Halifax TTG crew last year.
Hope you like it too!:)
Would you buy a custom lego drone? Know anyone who would?
He’s also thinking of doing lego commission, let us know!
Making a flash character I’ve been meaning to do for awhile… I changed her to be a bit more TTG since that’s pretty much all I can draw now lol. Need to take a break and come back later to decide if I like or loath it before continuing to refine it.
She has no name! Any ideas?
Any ideas for changing the design are welcome too, I’m not crazy about her hair and I might stretch her out a bit/mess with proportions
I know who my favorite villain is now.
This is our new puppy Ruby, she’s a Shepherd Mastiff mix and she’s adorable
If you guys visit halifax she needs to come play with Rory! :D
