The Academy is proud to present our ninth annual event celebrating the nominees for Best Animated Feature Film. The evening will feature clips from each film, followed by an onstage discussion with each group of nominated filmmakers. This year’s films, Kubo and the Two Strings, Moana, My Life as a Zucchini, The Red Turtle and Zootopia feature a wide range of styles showcasing stunning stop-motion, sweeping CG and breathtaking hand-drawn animation. Traveling around the globe to locations real and imaginary, these films explore the journeys of their protagonists in ancient rural Japan, a tropical Pacific isle and the surrounding ocean, a foster care center in Switzerland, a deserted island and a bustling city of animals. Despite their many differences, all share a theme of building self-reliance while nurturing the bonds of family and friendship.
