OSCAR 2016- 16 Film d'Animazione in corsa per la statuetta

Di Simone Fabriziani 

La Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences ha annunciato la shortlist finale di ben 16 lungometraggi d'animazione che si competeranno un posto nella cinquina finale per l'Oscar al Miglior Film d'Animazione
Poche sorprese nella shortlist e tante conferme, soprattutto tra i tre titoli che senza alcun dubbio gareggeranno per la vittoria finale: i due Pixar Inside Out e Il Viaggio di Arlo (The Good Dinosaur), e il Gran Premio della Giuria a Venezia Anomalisa di Charlie Kaufman.

Ma attenzione ai due piccoli gioiellini animati Il Profeta di Kahlil Gibran e Quando C'Era Marnie, ultimo poetico prodotto dello Studio Ghibli.

Ecco il comunicato stampa dell'Academy:
