This year’s Oscar was very different. First of all there was no mix up like the previous year’s Best Picture and at the same time inclusion and issue based movies took a centre stage with Joker and Parasite taking centre stage. Bong Joon-hoo made history as he tied with Walt Disney for most Oscars won in one night. There were several other moments with Phoenix tearfully remembering his brother in his acceptance speech.

Prior to the commencement of this event many awards were left in the hanging as there were no clear contenders for it. One of them was the category Best Animation Picture. Last year saw an immense amount of good animated movies in theatres and get a good response. The movies in contention were How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, I Lost My Body, Klaus, Toy Story 4 and Missing Link.Toy Story 4 ultimately won out.

In the last year with so many live action movies especially by Disney, the rule regarding which movie should be considered animated or not has been challenged. In case of such confusion we saw The Lion King get nominated for Best Animation Feature in Golden Globe for its use of Photorealistic CGI.

The fact that Toy Story 4 exists is a huge miracle as nobody expected a sequel after such an ending in Toy Story 3 which saw Andy giving away his toys to another kid. It was the end of the central theme which was dominated by Andy’s relation with Woody.

Director Josh Cooley was quoted saying, “It’s the completion of his being able to let go of Andy, but there is more to Woody. He’s been such a loyal toy, like so good to the point where he had blinders on, and so this was like, can we show him that everything that he has feared for entire quadrilogy is actually, Bo is that. Bo has become that lost toy that he was freaking out about in the first film and now he’s able to open his eyes and go like, ‘Wow, there is a bigger world out there. I can basically go from taking care of one kid in a bedroom to taking care of multiple kids everywhere.’ So that felt like a big change and a completion of his arc.”

But the fourth movie took the franchise into new territories and created a heartfelt movie with a new ending which for the time being seems fully final. But its Disney, they thrive on Franchises so who knows.
