Pete Docter and Jonas Rivera won the Animated Feature Film category at the 88th Academy Awards for Pixar and Disney's Inside Out film on Sunday. The film competed against Hiromasa Yonebayashi and Studio Ghibli's When Marnie Was There film as well as Anomalisa, Boy and the World, and Shaun the Sheep Movie.
No anime were nominated for this year's Animated Short Film category. The nominees were "Bear Story," "Prologue," "Sanjay's Superteam," "We Can't Live Without Cosmos," and "World of Tomorrow." Gabriel Osorio Vargas and Pato Escala Pierart's Chilean short "Bear Story" won the category.
Mamoru Hosoda's The Boy and The Beast and the religious anime film The Laws of the Universe Part 0 were also eligible for the Animated Feature Film category, but neither received a nomination. When Marnie Was There's theme song "Fine on the Outside" was eligible for the Original Song category, but it did not earn a nomination.
Last year Disney's Big Hero 6 film won the Animated Feature Film category, and competed against Isao Takahata and Studio Ghibli's The Tale of the Princess Kaguya film. Patrick Osborne and Kristina Reed won the Animated Short Film category for Disney's "Feast."
