In 2017, for the second time in the history of the Oscars, an animated film is nominated for special effects. Laika Entertainment's Kubo And The Two Strings was a groundbreaking film — up for Best Visual Effects (The Nightmare Before Christmas, in 1993, is the only other animated movie to get that nod), it also features the largest-ever stop motion puppet, and it was the first animated film to be nominated for a prize at the Costume Designers Guild Awards. This 3D stop-motion fantasy-adventure film takes animation creativity to the next level.
