Editorial: Mathieu Brunet Discusses the 2016 Academy Awards & Annie Awards

2016 Oscars and Annie Awards Editorial

From Inside Out rising to the top of the 2016 Annie Awards to Chris Rock carrying the 2016 Academy Awards to the bottom with bad #OscarsSoWhite jokes, Mathieu Brunet a.k.a. AniMat reflects on the winners and losers of this year’s Annie Awards and Academy Awards.

As you may already know, an Academy Award (an Oscar) is an “accolade by the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) to recognize excellence of professionals in the film industry, including directors, actors, and writers. The formal ceremony at which the awards are presented is one of the most prominent award ceremonies in the world and is televised live in more than 225 countries annually. It is also the oldest award ceremony in the media.”

The Annie Awards, on the the other hand, are an American award for accomplishments solely in animation “presented by the Los Angeles branch of the International Animated Film Association.”

    Actually Animat, Bear Story is loosely based on the story of the director Gabriel Osorio’s grandfather Leopoldo Osorio, who was exiled during the gevernment of Augusto Pinochet the September 12 of 1973 (which is represented by the people of the circus taking the bear protaginist away from his family).

    Hey Animat, didn’t you say last year that you thought neil patrick harris was a huge improvement from 2014? Why did you change your mind of all a sudden?

  • Mat Brunet (AniMat)

    All of a sudden? It’s been a full year. It’s WAAAY past all of a sudden. Looking back at it now, I may have enjoyed it as an Oscar show, but as a show in itself, it’s not all that great

    It’s just that you did mention in your 2015 vlog that you enjoyed Neil Patrick Harris as a host.
