What are the 2018 Best Animated Film Oscar nominees? Children's films naturally make up the majority of the five nominated films. The Boss Baby, starring Alec Baldwin as the titular infant, received a nod. Ferdinand, based on the classic children's book of the same name, was nominated for the prestigious award. Executive produced by Angelina Jolie, The Breadwinner has been praised for its portrayal of Middle Eastern history as it takes place in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. The nearly universally acclaimed Coco takes viewers on a journey to the Land of the Dead. Loving Vincent - the sole animated film for adults in the running - is a biographical drama about Vincent van Gogh that uses imagery from the artist's paintings as inspiration for the film's style. With so many great Best Animated Film nominations, it's hard to pick just one as the ultimate victor.
