Oscar nominees Best Animated Feature 2014
Earlier today this article was brought to my attention, in which it becomes clear that some of the Academy voters have little to no respect for the animation industry. They openly admit not having watched the nominated films and/or claiming that animated films are for kids, so they didn’t vote. Even the ones shown in the article that did vote barely motivated their choice.
I find this extremely disrespectful of the animators who poured their heart and soul into making these movies, only to have their work be pushed aside without a second glance by the judges of one of the most prominent and well known film awards out there. As an aspiring animator, I am deeply insulted.
Please note that in this post I am expressing no opinion on whether Frozen should have won or not. I think it’s a wonderful film, just as all the other nominees. I am simply saying that we deserve better.
What they did is disrespectful to the creators of every single one of these films, even Frozen. By barely motivating their choice, they make it look like they voted for Frozen simply because of Disney’s status in the industry. Because it’s Disney, and it made a lot of money, so it had to be at least somewhat good. To me it seems like some of the voters just defaulted to voting for the Disney film, and nobody likes to win by default.
Don’t get me wrong, I too have been guilty of loving Disney simply because it’s Disney, but there is so much more beautiful animation out there and it deserves to be taken into consideration. And if Frozen won, it should have won because the majority of the voters thought it was the best film, not because part of the voters was too lazy to even watch the nominated films.
I don’t know why I haven’t seen this kickstarter all over tumblr yet.
Basically Catfe is a cat cafe, like the ones in Japan, that is trying to start up in Los Angeles, CA. They’ve already got the OK from LA department of health and LA animal services to start up their business but they need about $350,000 to get started up. At the moment they only have about $4,340.
But the really cool thing is, its not just a cat cafe! They plan to work with local shelters to house social cats, help them get adopted and help spread over all awareness. They also plan to host special events for local nonprofits as a way of giving back to the community, like children with disestablishes or orphanages.
You’d expect that once its started up it would be kind of expensive to get in with the cats right? Nope! They plan on pretty cheap rates!
