I don't know if anybody here actually cares, but I thought if anybody wanted to know, here it is.[url]www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2009-10-15/evangelion-1.0-ineligible-for-oscar-awards[/url] Just in case people did care, cyharding then jumped into the nearest ditch for safety.

Huh, well, here’s to hoping that 2.0 will get nominated next time (as long as its not another 2 years before we get it of course)

1. Oscars suck in general.

2. Blame it on Funimation. Apparently they had the whole film dubbed back in late 2008. Had they played the movie in one NYC/LA theater for a week then it would've been eligible.

3. Come on, let's be real. As a diehard Eva fan even I accept this truth but Evangelion 1.0 is nowhere near good enough to even be a Best Animation Film contender.

Yea, like a stupid anime cartoon about giant robots and blue haired bitches would get an Oscar anyway.

Because of scheduling issues that may or may not be FUNimation's fault, not because the Oscars said "Lol, no way are we going to even CONSIDER this."

Agreed, Up! was my first choice to start with, 1.0 is just too much of the same thing, the animation admittedly is spectacular, but that not a movie makes. :bored:

I think Hideaki Anno is an idiot, didn't he want recognition? Not in the famous sense, but o wow he made a master piece sense.

How the hell is this his fault? He didn't control when his film premiered here, that would be FUNi. :um-no:

This year's best animated flick? Even if Eva 1.0 became a contender i would highly doubt that it would ever get a nod unless someone doped all the critics and judges when submitting their votes.

For this particular year i would like to vouch for either Coraline or Ponyo. As much as I love what Pixar has done for us in the past this year's UP I feel wasnt really what it could have been. It had its moments...some really touching moments. But the dogs and the damn huge plot hole of how explorer Charles Muntz was able to nearly outlive our protagonist despite being 40 years his senior is just....ridiculous.

It certainly wasnt a WALLE or Ratatouille. Thats for sure. :smirk:

Well, 1.0 did win other 'Best Animated Movie' awards (along with 'Best Director', if I remember correctly), so it wouldn't be surprising that, if eligible, it would win a category or two. Don't ask me for sauce; dig if you must.

You're dumb if you think Evangelion even had a chance to be nominated even if it was eligible. Oscar animation is heavily dominated by American 3D animation, Pixar, Miyazaki, and Dreamworks.

It didn't even get a nation wide release like most films in the U.S.
Only a few theaters here and there.

This isn't a big deal. Didn't 1.0 and 2.0 win a few awards over in Japan?

I would love to see Rebuild 1.0 win an Oscar. Then both Matt Greenfield and Hideaki Anno could go up to collect the award, neither knowing who the other one is, suddenly a fight breaks out over who deserves the award more and Tiffany Grant hits Anno with a chair.

My two cents.
Neon Genesis Evangelion (from the Greek Ευανγελιον, meaning "Gigantic robots piloted by mentally ill children")
Eva Facts:
-Gendo's final silenced line to Ritsuko was "I'm going to shoot you now."
-Nagisa Kaworu kills a kitten every time you masturbate.
-Kaji's first and last name was Kaji

That argument doesn't work. See Lord of the Rings winning awards.
