Must-See or Skippable? Ranking The 2019 Oscar Movies
Mirai is a delightful animated film that is well worth your time. Having said that it won’t likely be critical on Oscars night. The film is nominated for best animated feature, but it’s unlikely to win that award.
It follows a young boy who has a series of time-bending adventures with his sister. It’s a delightful entry in the category that signifies the Academy’s interest in foreign animation. If we were being honest, Japanese animated films should win in that category a lot more often than they do. With Mirai‘s nomination, at least we know that the Academy isn’t ignoring them completely.
