Accepted. Elsa felt accepted, loved and — for the first time in forever — like she actually belonged. Her heart fluttered in her chest as she looked at the people surrounding her.
"Are you ready?"
Jack watched her from the back of the crowd as everyone chattered and applauded in agreement. Fear was non existent in this moment, everyone was happy. Everyone was having fun.
He grinned as he watched the girl who used to be so afraid of herself, create the most beautiful things in front of the people who once feared her so terribly.
No more fear. Jack had never felt so proud.
What power do you have to stop this winter? To stop me?
Oscar nominees Best Animated Feature 2014
Earlier today this article was brought to my attention, in which it becomes clear that some of the Academy voters have little to no respect for the animation industry. They openly admit not having watched the nominated films and/or claiming that animated films are for kids, so they didn’t vote. Even the ones shown in the article that did vote barely motivated their choice.
I find this extremely disrespectful of the animators who poured their heart and soul into making these movies, only to have their work be pushed aside without a second glance by the judges of one of the most prominent and well known film awards out there. As an aspiring animator, I am deeply insulted.
Please note that in this post I am expressing no opinion on whether Frozen should have won or not. I think it’s a wonderful film, just as all the other nominees. I am simply saying that we deserve better.
What they did is disrespectful to the creators of every single one of these films, even Frozen. By barely motivating their choice, they make it look like they voted for Frozen simply because of Disney’s status in the industry. Because it’s Disney, and it made a lot of money, so it had to be at least somewhat good. To me it seems like some of the voters just defaulted to voting for the Disney film, and nobody likes to win by default.
Don’t get me wrong, I too have been guilty of loving Disney simply because it’s Disney, but there is so much more beautiful animation out there and it deserves to be taken into consideration. And if Frozen won, it should have won because the majority of the voters thought it was the best film, not because part of the voters was too lazy to even watch the nominated films.

“I’ve just gotten into the Academy, which is really exciting for me. That’s exciting for any actor. And I get a call from my mother while I was in England and she goes, ‘I did something hilarious.’ And I’m thinking, What? And she’s like, ‘I voted.’ And I was like, ‘You voted for what?’ ‘The Oscars.’ And I was like, ‘You voted for the Oscars? What do you mean?’ And she goes, ‘The ballot came here and I voted!’ Cause she thought I’d be like, ‘That’s hilarious.’ I’m going to get kicked out of the Academy! Fortunately, she did it wrong and mailed it and mailed it back to herself, so I got to do it again.” - Jennifer Lawrence
