Here Are All the Oscar Winners for Best Animated Feature

The Academy's Best Animated Feature Oscar is one of the most coveted prizes in Hollywood, but it has often proven out of reach for many children's movies.

Unfortunately, some of the greatest animated movies out there aren't getting the recognition they deserve. That's why we're counting down all the Oscar winners for Best Animated Feature from recent to classic winners.

Happy Feet

George Miller's Happy Feet earned the Academy's inaugural Best Animated Feature Oscar win for 2006, marking a monumental shift in both production quality and artistic vision from 21 years earlier. It serves as a testament to both how far animation has progressed since then as well as the Academy's evolving standards.

This animated musical comedy takes place in an Emperor penguin colony, where each penguin must sing a "Heartsong" to find their mate. Two penguins fall in love and start a family together - until Memphis (voiced by Hugh Jackman) watches an egg hatch and discovers that the baby penguin cannot sing but instead dances!

After a long winter, spring has finally arrived! All around him, Emperor penguin eggs hatch with abandon - except for this baby's egg which doesn't hatch. Much to his father's dismay, he discovers his little penguin has no singing ability and will soon be cast aside from their group.

Happy Feet is an enjoyable family movie with a strong environmental message that appeals to viewers of all ages. It features an engaging storyline, captivating musical score and epic set piece set in Antarctica.

There's an endearing sense of humor throughout the film that's both witty and wise. All characters are incredibly likeable, even the villains, which makes you want to root for them even when they turn against you.

One of the greatest things about the movie is how it tells a story with plenty of emotion and heart. It's an animated film that educates about environmentalism, with messages that are highly pertinent to today's society.

It was the director's first venture behind the camera since 1998's Babe: Pig in the City, and it's an impressive feat to see him return to animated filmmaking after such a long absence. He did an outstanding job with this film and proved once again why he has such a knack for this craft.

In 2001, he intended to make Fury Road but circumstances got in his way. While studios had declined to fund it, he had another idea and that's when Happy Feet came into being.

Inside Out

The 88th Academy Awards have just concluded, and it was a momentous night for Disney and Pixar. Inside Out - from the creators of Toy Story and Up - took home the top prize in the animated feature category.

Directed by Pete Docter, Inside Out is a delightful comedy about the inner workings of an 11-year-old girl's mind. Her emotions - Joy (voiced by Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Fear (Bill Hader), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Anger - attempt to guide her through her new life in San Francisco; however when Joy and Sadness are accidentally kicked out of headquarters, they must find a way back.

One of the most inventive and touching films of 2016, Inside Out is perfect for both kids and parents who want to understand their emotions better and how to manage them appropriately. Filled with moments of hilarity, unbridled imagination, as well as moments of warmth and nostalgia for childhood innocence and invention, Inside Out offers something special for everyone in its sights.

In a field heavily biased towards independent, international and quirky films, Inside Out emerged as the clear victor. It edged out other contenders such as Paramount's offbeat stop-motion drama Anomalisa, Lionsgate's Shaun the Sheep Movie and two GKIDS films: Brazil's Boy and the World and Studio Ghibli's When Marnie Was There.

Inside Out is the epitome of Pixar's expertise: creating highly innovative and emotional films for kids that still contain plenty of humor. It's an ideal choice for families and sure to please both critics and audiences alike.

The film had an immense success at the box office, grossing $857 million globally and becoming the highest-grosing animated film ever. It also received critical acclaim, with many criticizing its inventive storytelling and universal appeal.

Regarding the Oscars, Inside Out is likely to take home both Best Animated Feature and probably Best Original Screenplay. Anomalisa and Spotlight are likely contenders but those movies will likely need to wait until next year.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Into the Spider-Verse is an engaging, inventive, and often irreverent new take on a beloved comic book icon. It takes the classic Spider-Man myth (a man gets bitten by a spider, watches his uncle die, and becomes inspired to become a hero) and turns it in all kinds of unexpected directions.

As such, this film stands as an exceptional example of a modern superhero movie that shies away from all the cliches and conventions we've become accustomed to in favor of something fresh, innovative, and thrilling. It's an impressive feat that holds promise for the future of this genre and may inspire more filmmakers to try it out in years ahead.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is a delightfully brave and earnest piece of work, which can only be accomplished by artists willing to take risks, explore strange ideas, and tell stories from unexpected places. It's this spirit which makes Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse one of the best films of this year.

The most remarkable aspect of Into the Spider-Verse is how it redefines Spider-Man as an accessible character for everyone, regardless of race or gender. This has proven incredibly difficult and an issue which had been glossed over in previous films.

But Into the Spider-Verse succeeds, thanks to its remarkable cast and captivating story that you'll want to root for. Miles Morales stars as Miles Morales, a mixed-race teen struggling with school, heroism, family life, and dealing with his late uncle's legacy.

He meets a range of Spider-Men from other dimensions, each with their own visual aesthetic, and helps them all come together to face off against an evil common enemy. Despite the large cast, the film never forgets its core message: that no matter what kind of hero you want to be, you can become it.

It is an especially poignant message, coming as it does after the passing of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko - co-creators of Spider-Man - from Sony Pictures Animation, a studio that often struggles to get its movies made. This serves as a reminder that there is much work left for them to do, and superhero cinema's future lies with them.

The Boss Baby

The Boss Baby is an enjoyable family film featuring vibrant colors, encouraging messages, and role models. It makes for a great way to spend a rainy day while teaching kids about boundaries and sticking together as a family. Furthermore, older kids can watch this film with younger siblings without fear of upstaging.

This animated feature is based on Marla Frazee's book of the same name and stars Alec Baldwin as its voice. It promises to keep kids entertained while providing adults with plenty of enjoyment too!

Tim's life takes an unexpected turn when Boss Baby (Baldwin), dressed as a suit-wearing infant, arrives at his house. This baby, who is actually working as a spy for Baby Corp., wants to steal information about their rival company; if successful, he will be promoted and given an impressive bonus!

Tim feels abandoned and his parents may even no longer love him. Thankfully, he soon discovers the baby is an undercover agent with a mission to complete.

Tim and Boss Baby strive to help their new brother understand the value of family bonds and working together as a unit. Additionally, they remember to appreciate life's little pleasures.

It's an ideal film for children who are experiencing difficulty with their sibling relationships. Older kids may find it difficult to watch their younger sibling grow up and get into trouble at school, or if their parents still love them; The Boss Baby offers families a way to discuss these topics openly.

Although The Boss Baby is a charming movie, it does contain some coarse language and insults such as "Suck it up," "You suck," "diaper sniffers" and "What the frittata." Furthermore, there are some frightening themes and peril which might be too much for younger viewers; therefore, families are encouraged to discuss these matters before watching the film.
