Is Stop Motion dead?
Apparently the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences doesn’t think so.
There were a remarkable four stop motion selections nominated this year for the #Oscars2020! Three out of the five animated shorts nominated are in stop motion and they all come from the independent sector:
Dcera (Daughter) | Daria Kashcheeva
Memorable | Bruno collar, Jean-François Le Corre
Sister| Siqi Song
But wait, there’s more! A Best Animated Feature nomination went to this stop motion feature:
Missing Link | Chris Butler, Arianne Sutner, Travis Knight
So take that, Frozen 2!! (which was left out in the cold by Oscar nominators)
