To the surprise of almost no one, "Zootopia" won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature last night. Pixar also gained the Best Animated Short award for their "Piper." Congrats to "Zootopia," as I really loved the film. Heck, when I was at Anthro New England last month, there were a couple of Nick Wilde cosplayers, and I had fun with them with me in my Disney Big Bad Wolf fursuit.

But the actual presentation of the awards were pretty lame. What do Gael García Bernal and Hailee Steinfeld know about animation?
And I recall the "In Memoriam" video left out a number of the voice actors that passed away last year. Come on!

Personally, since ABC was (and is for the next several years) broadcasting the awards, I was kind of hoping Mickey was going to present the awards for animation. I mean, the walk-around has an articulated face for ten years now and I don't see why they can't do that again.

Zootopia deserved to win the Oscar, since it's considered one of Disney's best animated films of 2016. I remember when we were not expecting it to be this great since we were expecting Moana to be the big shot, until it surprised everyone on how marvelous this film turned out to be.

The video was probably only for members of the organization responsible for the awards who had died within the past year.
