Can 'Toy Story 4' Win the Oscar for Best Animated Feature Up Against a Record Setting 32 Films?

Toy Story 4 For Your Consideration
Earlier this week, a record-setting 32 films were revealed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as contenders for the 2020 Academy Awards (also known as, Oscar's).

Of course, this doesn't mean that all 32 films will reach the final voting stage, but this grouping contains the films which the Academy acknowledges were submitted by their respective studios. The Academy made sure to note that some of the films haven't met all of the minimum requirements (though they still can), but that this list will be reduced to the final five films which will compete for the coveted prize during the 92nd Academy Awards (February 9, 2020).

This got us thinking — what will the final five films be and does Toy Story 4 have a chance at winning and will it ultimately get a nomination?

A potential knock against Toy Story 4 is that history hasn't been kind to sequels in the same manner as original films. The only sequel to win the Oscar for Best Animated Feature since the category's inception in 2001 has been 2010's, Toy Story 3.

Of course, this doesn't mean anything for Toy Story 4 as each film stands on its own, but Incredibles 2 lost over Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse, and the following sequels didn't even get nominated — Cars 2Monsters University, Finding Dory, and Cars 3.

What is interesting is that many of the films from the larger studios this year are sequels and will certainly lead to an increase in odds for any sequel to win. Will Toy Story 4 be able to overcome juggernauts like Frozen II or How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World?

There are also original standouts from some other studios and reader comments on several sites call out Abominable (directed by ex-Pixarian Jill Culton) and Promare as well-respected entries (from smaller studios) among fans.

The full list of films submitted to the Academy are below. What do you think? Can Toy Story 4 win among a healthy list of competitors and buck the trend to avoid sequels? Leave a comment below or chat about it with other fans in the Pixar Post Forum.
