Fans Are NOT Happy About ‘Frozen 2’ Being Snubbed for Best Animated Feature Oscar Nomination. It’s awards season for entertainment, and much to the delight of fans, Disney has received a total of 23 Oscar Nominations for titles such as Jojo Rabbit (20th Century Fox), Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (Lucasfilm) and Toy Story 4 (Pixar). Another animated featured title, Frozen 2, did receive a nomination for “Best Song”, BUT did not get a nomination for Best Animated Feature.
Many fans were completely shocked and upset at the news, especially after it was popularly believed Frozen 2 not only had the nomination in the bag, but was fully expected to take home The Oscar.

Though the film did receive a nomination for “Into the Unknown” as Best Song, fans still feel the film was completely ripped off at the chance of winning Best Animated Feature. Traditionally, sequels do have a harder time getting Oscar nominations, but that was not the case for Disney-Pixar’s Toy Story 4, which WAS nominated for Best Animated Feature.
The 2020 Academy Awards nominees for Best Animated Feature are:
- Toy Story 4
- How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
- I Lost My Body
- Missing Link
We still have high hopes the film will take home an Oscar for Best Song, since”Into the Unknown”, has become as equally loves as “Let it Go” from the first film, but it is still surprising the visually stunning and playfully musical film did not receive a nomination from The Academy.
The 92nd Academy Awards will be held on Sunday, February 9, 2020, at the Dolby® Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center® in Hollywood, and will be televised live on the ABC Television Network at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT. The Oscars also will be televised live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.
