FINAL 2019 Oscar Predictions: ANIMATED FEATURE

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (Sony Animation)

It’s hard to bet against a film that’s so utterly dominated nearly all precursors and that’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. I know people want to make a spoiler argument for Incredibles 2 but sequels have a tough time here; Toy Story 3 is the only sequel to win the Animated Feature Oscar and the first Incredibles already won. Is the Disney/Pixar contingent strong enough to blow past such a locked in winner?

The one thing that gives me pause (not much though) is when 2014’s Big Hero 6 bested How to Train Your Dragon 2 but that was also the year that The Lego Movie won nearly everything and was snubbed at the Oscars. Spider-Verse is only Sony Animation’s second nomination here, which would also make it its first win.

1. SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE – Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, Rodney Rothman (Annie, BAFTA, BFCA, GG, VES)
2. INCREDIBLES 2 – Brad Bird
3. ISLE OF DOGS – Wes Anderson
4. RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET – Rich Moore, Phil Johnston
5. MIRAI – Mamoru Hosoda
Annie – International Animated Film Association
BAFTA – British Film Academy Awards
BFCA – Broadcast Film Critics Association (Critics Choice)
GG – Golden Globes
VES – Visual Effects Society

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
