From a big green ogre to a bunch of colorful feelings.
Though animation has been a part of the moviegoing experience since the 1930s, it wasn’t until the 21st century, specifically 2001, that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences decided to create the category of Best Animated Feature, largely in response to the sheer quality of films produced in the 1990s by Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks, Studio Ghibli and others. The very first winner was Shrek, and last year Pixar took home the trophy for Inside Out. In between, a generation of classics have claimed the honor of being the year’s best, and in the latest video from Burger Fiction, all of them have been collected into one vibrant, colorful, and heartwarming montage. Furthermore, each of the 2016 nominees – Kubo and the Two Strings, Zootopia, Moana, My Life as a Zucchini, and The Red Turtle – are also represented with clips, allowing you to compare the current contenders against past winners to see who best fits the presented pantheon.
And once you watch this, be sure to check out BF’s other Oscar-related work, including a video of Every Best VFX Winner Ever, Every Best Cinematography Winner Ever, and Every Best Picture Winner Ever.
