Only one of all the Madoka releases there are could possibly be up for an Oscar this time round due to the rules of nomination periods asking which one illustrates your stupidity. It can only be one of them of all of them due to release dates, not one at a time.

>>
>>100186129

Picking nominees only.

I highly doubt it will succeed against amerishit like Despicable Me 2 or Cloudy 2.

At least a nomination would be golden.

I hope for the best. That movie deserves it.

Western animation is not really that bad. It's just only 3D animation anymore and that's what sucks. They really get atricious and I can't stand them anymore.

It won't even get nominated, which is sad. Anime from people besides Miyazaki deserve better recognition in the west.

Rebellion was far better then most if the stuff animated in the west. I'm personally sick and tired of shit like frozen that is a paint by number movie created to appeal to the same demographics that always vote for the same stuff every year.
>>

Still, he's the writer so some credit would go to him if Puella would win. I assume that they must have run out of movies to even allow Puella to compete... Urobutcher should do something good like Psycho Pass etc

It would be the worst film to win "Best Animated Feature" since Happy Feet, but I wouldn't be surprised because the Academy has horrible taste in animated features seeing as how Brave won despite there being at least four or five animated films released in the same year that shat on it.

I'm looking all over the net with the "predictions" and none of them even mentioned Rebellion.
It's terribly overlooked because it did not get advertised at all overseas and had less screenings than any traditional movie.

Madoka will not even get a mention in the Oscars.

The Academy votes. Because its a small group of industry guys doing it, big names are generally more likely to win because it works a lot like a popularity contest among friends.
>>
>>100185701
Most of Madoka fans are aware how much West "likes" anime so it getting no nomination will be hardly surprising. But yeah, "trolls" will have a field day behaving as if it's some ground breaking news.
>>
Isn't it physically impossible for Madoka to win since it's a sequel to a series that old white men definitely have not watched? The story wouldn't matter nearly as much without knowing the background and who the characters are. Would they force the critics to watch the 2 recap movies first just to competently judge an anime movie about magical girls which I'm sure they think is purely for faggots?
>>
I still remember the "reviews" some faggot did for the list of movies considered for nomination. He wrote about every single one of them and when he reached Madoka, it was something like
>It's moe anime, so it's shit and you shouldn't even bother

>>100188011
Jews are always involved
>>
>>100187965
A bunch of old out of touched egotistical circlejerking faggots decided which director panders to them the most this year and bestows upon the the award known as the Oscar. An award of such legendary prestige that famous talented men like Miyazaki play retirement games, or actors like DiCaprio stab themselves to just to try and get some sort of chance of earning it. And they will never stop being faggots because you faggots and other faggots give them the attention and validity they so desperately crave, but do not deserve.
>>
It's funny as a theoretical concept.

It's still a shitload of fucking work and money to create the very complex models (unless you're making total shit), and you still have to animate all the movements, do all kinds of physics programming, etc. You also have to think of the costs in terms of technology and rendering everything.

The real advantage is that you can reuse models once they're made, and that it usually sells better.

But we already are living in a world like that. The best shows airing right now since the cancellation of Dan Vs. are Gravity Falls, Steven Universe, and Archer, and Archer is more like a radio drama with minimal use of animation, and the season schedules for western shows is frustratingly erratic since it's not uncommon for shows to take a fucking year to finish a season.

The original series would probably be a lot easier for Western audiences to enjoy than Rebellion.

Here's a nice copypasta for you.

What made madoka outstanding instead of just good was not any single aspect but the combination of many different things playing together. It's basically more than the sum of its parts:
- all star staff (gen, shinbo, kajiura&pets, ume)
- inu curry's designs fitting the witch realms instead of just coming off as "oh shaft being shaft again"
- well-executed setup (bait and switch)
- good pacing, no filler, practically no plotline let untied
- motivation of each girl was quite clear
- good division of arcs between the characters. each of them served their purpose
- multi-faceted ending
- good voice acting
- fan-fodder (faust, runes)
- while all the suffering made the show a good contrast to the genre conventions it didn't go overboard with that. It didn't veer into grimdark "let's torture them so more for no purpose at all" territory
- they fell into practically none of the tropes. try to revive sayaka with the power of friendship/appealing to willpower? Nope. Homura becoming a battle-hardend terminator and saving the day? Nope. Sayaka becoming a hero of justice? Nope. Mami building a magical girl squad? Nope. Madoka saving everyone in the end? Nope. QB being either evil or the ever-helpful critter? Neither.

Even the side characters were great for the little screen time they got. Madoka's mom and teacher having that conversation felt... like actually having a concerned parent not being sure what to do about her child.

Surely you have to understand that you aren't the first person to make the claim that Madoka is bad.

I'd love to see it get nominated, and that's all I'm hoping for. It was an objectively good movie, and it deserves that at the very least.

If it were to win an Oscar, that'd dramatically increase the odds of them making another movie, too.

However, it won't win, because for someone to really enjoy it and understand it, they obviously have to have watched the series first, or at least the first two movies, which I'm willing to bet that none of the judges likely have, nor will they if it gets nominated.

So, I just want to see it get nominated. That's all I'm after.

She did in the series. Rebellion has kind of mucked that up. Strictly speaking her being "alive" might be considered a bad thing, though currently we don't have a lot of information about what Homura did.

It'd be like in Sailor Moon instead of reviving your friend and then going around talking about it like it never happened they instead revived their friend but with some monkey paw type shit going on so that they were better off dead.

Because you can't defend your own opinions then. Mind you, I never said that Madoka was bad, I am a different poster from the person who you were arguing with.
I understand your frustration, and I have indeed seen all the discussion pertaining to it, but even then the praise it gets seems undeserving.

The only thing that really holds Madoka up is its "darker tones" and tweests and nothing more. Not anything other mahou shoujo shows haven't done before. At the end of the day, it's just an edgy magical girl anime..

7.5/10 anime at best for the soundtrack and visuals going along with it, though. You guys really overrate the hell out of this one.
>>
>>100192151
Probably not actually, Urobuchi has a certain style with writing characters that would probably be missed if he wasn't involved. The others are just as important, probably tempering some of Urobuchi's decisions and Inu-Curry especially has added a lot of their own charm to the series.

Go read some of the spin-off stuff to see how bad thing can get without good writing.

How that?

>Yes, they're one-dimensional.
In what terms do you think they are one-dimensional?

>They were moved by the plot.
Yeah but there are lots of shows with useless arcs which you could have just skipped. Every character had her arc in the show with enough time to focus on past present and their death.

>Deus ex machina.
So every ending in the world is now Deus Ex Machina. In 12 episodes no one needs an asspull. They had a well constructed story which you could have guess already - meaning it is built in.

They also concluded Homura's character arc much more satisfactorily compared to the original series. The only part of the movie I didn't particularly like was Nagisa being shoehorned in for fanservice. Also Bebe's face is goofy and I preferred her original doll-like look better.

No it didn't. The ending was fine as it was, with Homura finally being at peace. It doesn't need to be a happy ending to be a good ending. If anything, the last episode of Madoka was bittersweet, but there were no changes that needed to be made to make it satisfactory. Rebellion was just Shaft begging for dosh.

Homura's wish to protect Madoka wasn't fulfilled at the end of the series. I don't know about you but I don't consider that a completed character arc.
>>
>>100195121
I guess you're one of those faggot who only see Homura as fap material because otherwise I don't see how you can be satisfied with that ending, they don't solve any of the problem of the character and only makes them worse for a second season.

This is bullshit Shinbo came up with for Rebellion. Stop basing your arguments on it.
>>
>>100195572
I don't get why her wish needs to be granted in order for her arc to be completed. Her efforts didn't go to waste, they were just redirected to another cause inadvertently. At the end, Homura found a new goal at the end of the series.
>>
The reason I can tell Madoka won't be nominated is because it requires a knowledge of the series before watching this movie.

The people who run these awards will ignore that because they don't want to waste time with anime and will just nominate their five favorite American films, picking whichever made the most money this year, and be done with it. Don't expect anything good from people running an awards show.
>>
>>100195580
I didn't like Rebellion either but to be fair, it wasn't that out of character for Homura to act that way. It just seemed like it because the plot was pants on head retarded.
>>
>>100195713
The hell are you talking about? Mami talks about it in Episode 12 after Sayaka dies.

He thinks that a character needs to come to terms with their problems rather than embrace in them for an arc to be completed.
>>

The reason I can tell Madoka won't be nominated is because it's not a Ghibli movie.
>>
>>100193038
Since its controversy the Oscars might puss out and give it to Frozen like what they did in 2006 with Brokeback Mountain by giving Crash the best picture instead but since this is an animation category and nobody gives a shit they'll probably give it to The Wind Rises anyways.

>Make your movie about someone embarking into a self-destructive spiral of alcohol, drugs and gay sex.

Its going up against Monster's University and The Wind Rises though. Pixar is known for stealing that award, like last year with the lukewarm Brave, and The Wind Rises is a critical favorite and Miyazskis "final" film, they're not gonna give it to princess movie #264378537 given how Tangled and Princess and the Frog were beaten out.

How is completely fucking over Homura's resolution in episode 12 a more satisfactory ending? Homura is shown to be content at the very end of the series. There was nothing that needed to be added on.

Face it, Rebellion was only there to give the producers more jewgold.

She didn't have anything to do other than sit around with Kyubey and fight Wraiths. Considering that she was still obsessed with Madoka, talking and thinking about her all the time, it just didn't seem like an ending Homura would have wanted. In the flower field in Rebellion she even says that she thought she was going crazy because no one remembered Madoka other than herself. This hardly seems like finding a new goal.

I agree they could have just left it at that, but I think her actions in Rebellion were handled well and made sense.

I'm not sure I want this.
On one side, we would be witnessing one of the biggest shitstorms ever conceived in the movie industry, it would be hilarious and it would be talked by generations to come.

On another, this could lead to mainstream-fication of anime. Soon the producers would start doing more and more anime directed to western audiences.
Soon anime would be just like vydia is nowadays, and I definitely don't want that.

But I'm sure it won't happen, it won't even get selected this thursday.

What he said was "They ruined her, they fucked up her resolution for more jewgold" and what that other guy said was "No, this is more about clarifying who she really was. She wasn't a hero of justice who loves the world, but closer to someone who would save the world only because that's what Madoka would have wanted. She's someone who would always pick Madoka over humanity if the option was there". Even if you say those two statements are exactly the same that's not really the case at all.

Rebellion shows the more negative influx of her character as she's brought to the limits of what is can withstand, and she comes to believe there's another way to have her cake and eat it too at the cost of becoming iredeemable herself. However that does not matter to her; she'll taint her hands a thousand times over if it means saving this person, and she did believe from the flower scene that Madoka was unhappy or was forced into that choice when she became a goddess and abandoned her family. Even if someone says "No, they screwed it all up, she would never do that. Homura was happy saving the world at the end of the series, any more development there would only ruin it all" I don't believe that's the case; as Homura still needed Madoka, and while the events at the end of the series still happened she did eventually come to another choice of her own will that was in character.

Not to mention Homura still never saved Madoka back in the original series which was her wish all along. If you consider what she did saving her then you'd consider every time-line up to that point where Madoka survived up until the end the same, but that's not the case. Rather Madoka yet again sacrificed herself for humanity at the end of the series, and Homura just had to accept that inconclusive ending because there was no better path at the time, and she believe it was what Madoka wanted.
