Dan the Pixar Fan
While I was watching the Academy Awards last night, I of course couldn't help but think of the fact that Monsters University wasn't nominated (even though that topic has been much talked about already).

I then thought of something I hadn't thought of before...

Monsters Inc. WAS nominated but lost to Shrek
Cars WAS nominated but lost to Happy Feet

It's interesting that the 2 Pixar films that lost the award WITH a nomination didn't get ANY nomination with the release of the sequel. Both Cars 2 and MU were completely snubbed as you know. I wonder why and if this has to do with anything? Did the Academy just not appreciate, as much, the worlds of monsters and cars for some reason?

It's almost like they said, "well they didn't win the first time so we're not even gonna bother nominating their sequels..." or something like that. Thoughts?

I have thought about this before, too, and I think it is pure coincidence. There was just something that the Academy found wrong with these two films, and they also coincidentally found something wrong with their sequel and prequel.

Of course, we all know all four films were spectacular. And while I wish they would have won(Monsters Inc especially got robbed), I am happy for the films that won. These were Happy Feet, Rango, and Frozen. They may have not been AS good as Cars, Cars 2, and Monsters University in my book, but I really like all three of them.
Monsters Inc, however, should have won and I am NOT happy Shrek won. I like it, but it was nowhere near as good as MI.

Big congratulations to Frozen and Let It Go for their Oscar wins!

Well, there's that balanced outlook from Mac95 that we've come to expect. I wish I were that level-headed sometimes! [Silly_zps7c205e8c]

I also have to agree with Mac95 that it was just a coincidence - I can't imagine they'd think about Cars not being nominated and therefore they wouldn't nominate Cars 2The only thing that really saved me from being really bummed about Pixar not being nominated was that awesome Andrew Stanton Google commercial (wow)!

It was still a bummer and I still stand behind the fact that I believe that Mosnters, Inc. and Cars should have won though (but that's a whole additional story)!

I'm not at all level-headed or impartial, so here's my take on how things should've panned out for what it's worth:

Monsters, Inc. - should've won, by a landslide
Cars - shouldn't have been nominated
Cars 2 - shouldn't have been made
Monsters University - should've been nominated ahead of the Croods and/or the stupid beedobeedobeedo minions but fair enough if it couldn't beat Frozen to the statue.

Pricklepants I laughed out loud when I read your take on how things should have been... I agree, Monsters, Inc. should have won since it's my fave and pretty much the best animated film ever. It just has all the elements that make a movie great... humor, creativity, heart, likeable characters, plot twists, etc... Too bad Ellen Degeneres wasn't a voice in Monsters University... I think that might have been it's only chance to beat out Frozen since she could have bribed the Academy with pizza or something [smile]
