I usually don't reprint press articles, but I found this one in Hollywood Reporter in December and I thought it was particularly interesting.
However, two points Tim Gray failed to bring up are the extreme prejudice against animation that deals with adult topics, and secondly, why should animation be relegated to its status as a minor art form when the year's Top 10 box office grossers usually includes 3 or 4 animated features?
It seems like audiences have no problem loving animation, while the Hollywood establishment just doesn't get it.
Anyway, please let me know what you think of this article. Thanks!
