Oscars Make Changes to Animated and Visual Effects Categories

Oscars Make Changes to Animated and Visual Effects CategoriesSubmit Comment
Now that almost every movie is incorporating visual effects, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has decided to explain the Visual Effects category to five nominees for the 83rd Academy Awards.

In the Animated Feature Film category, the rule governing running time for a motion picture to qualify was changed from at least 70 minutes to greater than 40 minutes, which is consistent with the running time requirements for feature films in all other categories. The previous 70-minute threshold for an animated feature had left a gap for films that ran between 40 and 70 minutes, effectively preventing them from being able to qualify as either features or shorts.

Also in the Animated Feature Film category, a sentence regarding motion capture was added to clarify the definition of an animated film. The language now reads: "An animated feature film is defined as a motion picture with a running time of greater than 40 minutes, in which movement and characters' performances are created using a frame-by-frame technique. Motion capture by itself is not an animation technique. In addition, a significant number of the major characters must be animated, and animation must figure in no less than 75 percent of the picture's running time."

Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2010 will be presented on Sunday, February 27th, 2011 and televised live on the ABC Television Network.

No! This will never do!

They want us to simply believe that Jack Skellington was a real life person! How totally absurd!

This is utter princely poppyc*ck, I tell you!

I have spoken! So I have spoken, so shall it be!

Poppyc*ck!

Again Oscars will miss in time some good movies worth the golden statue, as they won't cover these absurd requests.

Now, motion capture has its uses, but I'm not on board with Robert Zemekis producing feature length films with the stuff. The characters look like bloated corpses who don't have teeth when they open their mouths!
