The early reception has been extremely enthusiastic. It doesn't seem like it's that far out there compared to the typical Ghibli submissions, GKIDS just needs to campaign it. Certainly if Robot Dreams can get in I don't think Sirocco is that much of a stretch.

I've only heard of two of these movies. Well actually three of them. I forgot about the Piece by Piece thing. I'm very skeptical of the Lego documentary getting in. So yeah if you like animation outside the big name studios that make blockbusters, I guess this is the year for you

  • “The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim” (Warner Bros.) 
  • “The Magnificent Life of Marcel Pagnol” (Sony Pictures Classics) 
  • “Ultraman: Rising” (Netflix)

Alternates: “The Imaginary” (Netflix); “Moana 2” (Walt Disney Pictures); “Mufasa: The Lion King” (Walt Disney Pictures); “Spellbound” (Netflix); “That Christmas” (Netflix); “Transformers One” (Paramount); “Untitled Wallace & Gromit Movie” (Netflix) 

 

Don't think he's aware of Piece by Piece or Sirocco's existence but I think both their distributors have the cache to get them attention by year's end

What's the longest Pixar has gone without wining the Oscar for Animated Feature?

Seems to be that they've only gone two awards cycles in a row without winning before now. Now they've been 3 awards cycles without one and there's likely to be a fourth one coming up. Of course there is also WDAS which won in some of the years Pixar didn't win.
