Best Animated Film
There are never a ton of animated films every year, and often times there are only a handful of good ones - and even fewer that hit wide release. Anomalisa took until mid-January to expand nationwide, but the wait for Charlie Kaufman's R-rated stop-motion film was well worth it. The Good Dinosaur was a disappointment because of the standard's we've set for Pixar, but it was fine. Inside Out was one of Pixar's best films. Shaun the Sheep Movie was a very fun film from Aardman. And Studio Ghibli's "last" film, When Marnie Was There, turned out to be a good one.
