‘Frozen 2’ Snubbed From Best Animated Film Nomination at This Year’s Oscars
The Oscar nominations are officially out this morning and there’s one notable absence from the list of nominees. Disney’s Frozen 2 which made nearly $1.4 billion at the global box office was snubbed in the Best Animated Feature category for this year’s Academy Awards.
Nominations in this year’s category include: I Lost My Body, Klaus, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, Missing Link and Toy Story 4. As the Hollywood Reporter put it, it’s hard not to feel that Frozen 2 directed by Jennifer Lee who also wrote the screenplay with Chris Buck is conspicuously absent from the list.
Fans have also taken to Twitter upset about the nomination snub from the Academy:

I know people are already making a fuss about the all-male directing category so I’m gonna throw this in to the ring: no “Frozen 2” either. Which was also written and co-directed by a woman. https://t.co/0MfiAniWnN
