91st Academy Awards: 25 Submissions in Best Animated Feature category. Inspiration for budding artists to chase a career in animation

The Oscars are indisputable, the most awaited film awards in the world. Every year, scores of films compete for the prestigious honour across categories. One of the most anticipated categories at the Oscars, however, is the ‘Best Animated Feature’. Ever since this category was included in the Academy Awards in 2001, a total of 74 animated films have competed for the honour, while 18 films have won the coveted award. These films are benchmarks and the result of passionate efforts by world-class CG artists from top animation training institutes in the world.

The Academy Award for Best Animated Feature is given each year for animated films, defined by the Academy as a film with a running time of more than 40 minutes in which characters’ performances are created using a frame-by-frame technique, a significant number of the major characters are animated, and animation figures in no less than 75 percent of the running time.

Until 2001, the Academy didn’t have a regular Oscar for animated features as there were too few films produced to justify consideration. Instead, the Academy occasionally bestowed special Oscars for exceptional productions, usually for Walt Disney Pictures, such as for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1938, and Toy Story in 1996. Prior to the creation of the award, only one animated film was nominated for Best Picture: 1991’s Beauty and the Beast, also by Walt Disney Pictures.

By 2001, the increase of animation film releases was significant enough for the academy to reconsider. The Academy Award for Best Animated Feature was first given out at the 74th Academy Awards, held on March 24, 2002. The Academy included a rule stating that the award would not be presented in a year in which fewer than eight eligible films opened in theatres. If there are sixteen or more films submitted for the category, the winner is voted from a shortlist of five films, otherwise, there will only be three films on the shortlist. Additionally, eight eligible animated features must have been theatrically released in Los Angeles County within the calendar year for this category to be activated.

These are the films which won the Oscar in the Best Animated Feature so far: Shrek (2001), Spirited Away (2002), Finding Nemo (2003), The Incredibles (2004), Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of The Were-rabbit (2005), Happy Feet (2006), Ratatouille (2007), Wall-E (2008), UP (2009), Toy Story 3 (2010), Rango (2011), Brave (2012), Frozen (2013), Big Hero 6 (2014), Inside Out (2015), Zootopia (2016), Coco (2017) and of course Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018). The year in brackets denotes the year in which the film was produced. For 2001, 2003-2008 and 2010 Oscars, there were only 3 nominations in this category, while all other years so far had five nominations. From 2001, thanks to recognition for Animation films at the Oscars, the preference for Animation as a career seems to have gained momentum, triggering improved demand for animation courses across the world.

Oscars 2019 had the entire animation fraternity waiting with bated breath as five exceptionally well-made animated films, ‘Incredibles 2’, ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’, ‘Isle of Dogs’, ‘Mirai’ and ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ were nominated for the prestigious awards. The glitzy awards ceremony was held at the Dolby Theater, Los Angeles, California on 24th February 2019. Beating other nominees, ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature at the 91st Academy Awards. Here’s a peek into the five films that made the cut (nominations) for Oscars-2019.

Perhaps, no individual has ‘entertained and inspired’ the world like Walt Disney. He lived many lives: entrepreneur, animation artist, voice actor and producer. The pioneer of Animation, and the man behind the iconic ‘Mickey Mouse’, Walt Disney created one the largest entertainment empires in the world, comprising the eponymous ‘Walt Disney Studios’ and ‘Disney World’. He received several awards, and honours including a record-breaking 22 Oscars (59 nominations). He was also awarded honorary degrees by several top universities including Harvard and Yale. The US government released a postal stamp in his honour and a minor planet ‘4017 Disneya’ was named after him. Disney remains the central figure in the history of animation and is possibly the most enterprising entertainer the world has seen.

Inspired by the legend of Walt Elias Disney, students of Creative Multimedia College, Dilsukhnagar conducted an art show in his honour. Aptly titled ‘THE WALT DISNEY RETROSPECTIVE’, the show was held at the Nehru Art Gallery, Jawaharlal Nehru Architecture and Fine Arts University (JNAFAU), Hyderabad from 05 – 09 February 2019. Walt Disney would have been immensely proud of the creative skills displayed by students of Creative Multimedia College of Fine Arts (CMCFA) – Hyderabad.

The show featured 114 beautiful portraits of Walt Disney, created by students of CMCFA – the Animation and Applied Arts training initiative of Creative Multimedia Group. Each a unique work of art, the portraits gracing the walls of Nehru Art Gallery had visitors awe-struck. Students experimented with a range of interesting tools and mediums: coffee on paper, graphite dust on the ivory sheet, nails and yarn on wood, pencil on corrugated board, etching on a mirror, colour engraving on foil, plaster of Paris on cardboard, mixed media on glass, glitter on paper and paper collage.

Students also employed mixed media and such conventional tools-mediums as soft pastel on paper, poster colour on paper, watercolour on paper, colour pencil on the ivory sheet, charcoal on paper, oil on canvas, acrylic on paper, crayons on mount board, and sketch pen on paper to create inspiring illustrations and artworks.

Praveen Kilaru – Visual Effects (VFX) veteran and Production Head at Digital Domain graced the show as the Chief Guest and was blown away by the art skills of CMCFA students. He went around the gallery, observed the exhibits keenly, spent time with each student to understand the thought process behind their respective artworks and complimented them individually.


Addressing the media, Praveen said: “I didn’t come with a lot of expectations but was really blown away after seeing the exhibits. All the works are unique. Marvellous! The student’s passion is evident and so is the faculty’s zeal. I’m very proud to see this promising talent. It gives the industry a lot more confidence. I must thank the CEO of Creative Multimedia B. Raja Sekhar for grooming such fine talent which is very helpful for studios like us. You must conduct more of these art shows.”

Praveen had many encouraging words for students. Praising their work, he said: “Continue with the same passion. All of you will do great and earn many accolades in your respective animation careers. Remember, it’s important that you back up your art skills with good presentation skills. To sell your idea, you must articulate the process – what inspired you to create the artwork, how you did it and what was your approach. This is a valuable career skill. Importantly, in the VFX sector, passion takes precedence over money. So be prepared to work hard.” At the end of his address, he extended an invite to aspiring animation and VFX artists of CMCFA to visit Digital Domain.

Digital Domain is acknowledged as a global force in VFX with over 100 major awards including Clios, BAFTA and Cannes Lions apart from Oscar awards for the films ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’, ‘What Dreams May Come’ and ‘Titanic’. Digital Domain recently bagged an Academy nomination in the VFX category for the film ‘Avengers – Infinity War’.

  1. Shankar, popular caricaturist and winner of several prestigious national and international awards including the Grand Prix World Press Cartoon Award graced the show and appreciated students. Prof. Dr N. Kavita Daryani Rao, Vice-Chancellor of JNAFAU and Mr Vikas, Principal of JNAFAU also visited the gallery as special guests and appreciated CMCFA students.


Speaking to the press, Mr Buggaveeti Raja Sekhar, CEO of Creative Multimedia Group said: “CMCFA frequently conducts art shows with the motto ‘Education with a purpose – Art for a cause’. The art shows are part of CMCFA’s multiple initiatives aimed at helping students build a strong foundation in drawing while embracing a noble cause. Our previous art show ‘Mahanati’ was a resounding success and the proceeds of the exhibits sold at the show benefited the victims of flood-ravaged Kerala.”

India’s leading Digital Media career catalyst, Creative Multimedia Group, acclaimed for its job-oriented Animation, VFX, Web and Graphic Design training, conducted the 2019 edition of its immensely popular annual art show at Ravindra Bharati-Hyderabad on January 21, 2019.


New batch Animation students of Creative Multimedia College of Fine Arts (CMCFA) – Dilsukhnagar, Hyderabad conducted the art show titled ‘THE WALT DISNEY RETROSPECTIVE’ as a befitting tribute to, and in fond remembrance of Walt Disney – the legendary entrepreneur and pioneer of Animation on the occasion of his 117th birth anniversary.

The art show featuring 114 true-to-life illustrations showcased the artistic depth and creativity of students who created stunning artworks by experimenting with a range of interesting mediums including coffee on paper, graphite dust on ivory sheet, nails and wool on wood, pencil on corrugated board, etching on mirror, colour engraving on foil, plaster of Paris on cardboard, mixed media on glass and paper and glitter on paper and paper collage.


Students also used mixed media and such conventional mediums as soft pastel on paper, poster colour on paper, watercolour on paper, colour pencil on ivory sheet, charcoal pencil on paper, oil on canvas, acrylic on paper, crayons on mount board, and sketch pen on paper to craft true-to-life illustrations and artworks of Walt Disney.

Addressing the press on the occasion, the Chief Guest Mr. Alan said: “It’s inspiring to see students come up with such brilliant works of art by exploring a variety of creative mediums. This reflects their passion for the craft. It gives me great joy to note that these budding animation artists of Creative Multimedia have captured the essence of Walt Disney through these wonderful exhibits.



 Disney was a positive person who was optimistic about life and had a can-do attitude, which is why he was such a phenomenal success. He took the studio from cartoons films to TV, cinema and theme parks, creating a gigantic ‘media and entertainment conglomerate’. This was possible because of his positive attitude. Disney Studios had an inspiring work culture characterised by ‘Plussing’, which motivated the team to DO BETTER AND DO MORE. It’s a great message for students to apply ‘Plussing’ to their careers as well. All the students must be very proud of their work and I wish them the best of luck. I’ve seen very few academies like Creative Multimedia which are so passionate about animation training and I thank the CEO, Mr. Rajasekhar Buggaveeti for inviting me to inaugurate this truly exceptional Art Show.”
