Animated Film Oscar

Why Can’t an Animated Film Be Nominated For Best Director at the Oscars?

There’s a director who has been nominated for six Oscars. He even won once. His 2015 film was a critical and commercial success. It made over $350 million and has a 98 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

There’s another director who has been nominated for three Oscars. He’s won once. His 2015 film was also a critical success. It has a 96 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

By most accounts, these men have made two of the best films of the year, and their effort deserves to be recognized with nominations for Best Director at the 88th Academy Awards.

But they won’t be.

Those directors are Pete Docter and Charlie Kaufman. They’re about to get snubbed.

Pete Docter is not a Hollywood director. Yes, his movies get released by one of the biggest companies in Hollywood (Disney grossed over $2.2 billion and counting at the 2015 box office), but Docter himself is far removed from that world. He himself cops to this — his daughter’s BFFs have little-to-no interest, or even knowledge, that he directed a film inspired by their friend’s life — and with a Midwestern charm, politely shrugs off any talk of financial or critical accolades. Docter is so far from Hollywood, both literally and figuratively, that he lives in a treehouse; an honest-to-goodness treehouse that he had built on 15 acres of secluded land in northern California. (Briefly: The tree is artificial, a suspension bridge connects wings of the house and an elevator connects the home to the garage, located 25 feet below.)

Docter commands respect at Pixar — where he was the third employee ever hired and now serves as the Director and Vice President of Creative — not because of blustery tirades or a demanding style, but simply for his creative genius. Docter often walks around Pixar’s sprawling Emeryville campus by himself, blending in with the countless other employees. He eats lunch alongside newbie animators and support staff at Cafe Luxo. That doesn’t mean Docter deserves to be nominated as Best Director, but it partly explains why he isn’t. While Disney/Pixar may seem omnipresent, Docter prefers to keep a low profile. He’s not out politicking or campaigning. He’s already back at work helping shape future Pixar movies like Finding Dory, Coco, and even Cars 3.
