John and Billy, together again ...
... it's like kinda hard to argue, innit?.
The problem with coming up with "best" is that, somebody always disagrees.
For instance I think that Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was the best film of 1937, but the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science picked You Can't Take It With You, a film little seen or remembered today.
Beauty and the Beast got itself nominated as best film of 1991, but it didn't win. The light-hearted, family-oriented Silence of the Lambs took the prize.
No doubt about it. The annual Oscar handout is just flat-out prejudiced against cartoons. Sadly, there is no law against it.
And now there are screams of outrage that Kung Fu Panda skunked Wall-E at the recent Annies, so obviously the fix is in (even though John Lasseter swung by to pick up the Windsor McKay Award. What was John thinking?)
But I'm here to say, maybe it isn't the rigging of a jury, theft, or other chicanery. Maybe it is as those wacky Romans said: "De gustibus non est disputandum."
