Kids' Guide - All Ages
Best Animated Short Film
We begin with the category we are most excited about mainly due to the amount of deserving nominations. It’s hard to admit, but Pixar has done it again. Lou, a creature living in the lost and found on a Kindergarten playground, enlists the help of a toy-stealing bully. It’s whimsical, tear-jerking, and the animation is truly mind-blowing.
In the same category, you’ll find Negative Space. It’s a poignant stop motion masterpiece about a Father and Son bonding over packing, and Revolting Rhymes Part 1, based on the incredible books by Roald Dahl, author of James and the Giant Peach and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Best Animated Feature Film
Although we were a bit disappointed with the choice of great animated full length films this year, Coco is a visual feast with a moving message about family and culture. It’s a fabulous movie, but not quite good enough to make out to our Top 10 list of Kids Movies.
