To be completely honest it didn't deserve it. Kubo and the Two Strings was a much deeper film that blew Zootopia out of the water with its story, acting, and animation, not to mention the animation style was stop motion, one of the hardest and most arduous methods of animating there is. The thing is nobody gave Kubo the chance it deserved. Do yourselves a favor and watch it, and THEN tell me Zootopia was better. So far I haven't found one person who disagrees with me.
I thought the animation in Moana was better but Zootopia had everything else just kicked up a notch. Congrats!
Zootopia is a better movie than Moana with a stronger storyline. Zootopia is absolutely amazing it was a crime fighting kinda detective movie while still being suitable for children. It also addressed many current issues. You could watch Zootopia again and again and notice something new each time.
Let's hope it also gets the Oscar! Moana was good too but far too generic in comparison to Zootopia to deserve it.
Zootopia was original and a new story no would have thought of while Moana is a simple story we have seen before hence Mulan daughter who wants to save her clan and family a father who doesn't want her to leave. Both film's were great.
Zootopia was an all-around great movie, excellent animation, a well-performed soundtrack, and a story that both young and old can enjoy. It had action, comedy, a strong message for today's society, and not to mention a *little bit* of some future romantic hints. The animation was incredible, looked almost like the characters were placed in real life. The fur physics and appearance were pretty awesome to see, and knowing the team actually put in the effort to research actual animal fur made it that much better. The effort and result are very obvious with Zootopia, and I hope Rich Moore/Byron Howard and their team decide to go for a Zootopia 2, AND I hope they can make it at least half as good as this one.
I loved zootopia and moana so much! So glad it won, zootopia is such a good movie, I honestly almost forgot it was released in 2016 we have been watching it so much💙
Even though Moana is more or less the Lord of the Rings, it was better than Zootopia. I know many of the Disney movies have agendas but Zootopia slammed it in your face until it became tired and heavy handed. Could have been better if it was a bit more light hearted in its message.
Am sorry I think Zootopia deserve it because when they wanted to make this movie they brought it down with a story idea about animals living in society and went with it. The animation was so good that the kids loved it.. just like Star Wars that is beating out a couple of movies in box office.. it doesn't matter about details how they did it animation, special effects or what. What matters is about the audience and what they wanted to see in the theaters and zootopia got everyone's attention..
I'm thrilled it won. Kubo was a gorgeous work of art, but Zootopia had a biting level of social commentary that was really remarkable. Plus: a twist ending, and some funny as hell jokes.
I wonder what today would be like if my generation had grown up with such a powerful movie. Congrats on all aspects of the movie and kudos for saying it so boldly and in such a relevant time.
And can people stop hating on movies?!
I'm seeing all kinds of stuff about "Oh, THIS movie should've won!"
Well, if we could change the past, we wouldn't, now would we? Because that can tip the entire future of the universe off it's balance.
zootopia sucked, there was way too much going on that it gave me a headache from just looking at the screen. sometimes simplicity is all that we need. As for Moana, i literally saw it 4 times so far in the theaters. my new favorite movie by far
Kubo and Zootopia were awesome each for different reasons. I wouldn't personally say one was better than the other, but I'm not surprised nor upset at Zootopia winning.
Congrats to them. They deserve it. That team appeal to what children interests are and went with it. Maybe with this win can make zootopia 2.. I love watching this movie with my niece and nephew
Maybe make an attraction/more merchandise Disney ? It's a far better film than are previously celebrated :)
Loved this movie....we have a young German shepherd puppy mix that when we have her harness on we call her officer Judy reporting for duty! She gets so excited!
The awesome animators at Disney do it again! We love Disney because they always make great movies! Congratulations and thank you!!!!
films like moana or kubo deserve this award zootopia is a great film don't get me wrong but moana or kubo or any animated movies recently deserve the award more but if u try to talk like this to those people they will either ignore u or tell u to leave or they will get security on u or something sigh
I was actually rooting for Kubo, such a piece of ART!
But I liked Zootopia too, so not much of a loss there!
My 2 year old loves zootopia. I do to. I think a big reason why it won is because of the amazing cast they have. Especially idris elba and jk simmons
Moana should of won. So upset that Zootopia won. Finding Dory should at least been a nominee, I thought yhat was better than Zootopia but Moana was Motoblur my favorite animated movie if the year but one of my favorite movies of all time.
I'm sorry to say it, but Zootopia literally bored me to sleep. I haven't seen Moana yet but I sure hope it's better than Zootopia was!
As it should have!! It speaks so well to the issues we face today. Especially in the USA. Predator or prey it does not matter.
I hope either Moana or Zootopia get a academy award for best animated film. I mean I hadn't seen it both. Disney is amazing for making animated movies along with Pixar. But I would had to say congratulations to Zootopia.
Of course it won! Zootopia, in my opinion, is the best animation of Disney! (Not from Pixar)
I was surprised. Kubo was amazing and Moana was technically gorgeous (that hair, that water!).
It was ok but no where near best animated picture worthy
It was really hard to choose between Zootopia and Moana. Love them both. Congrats Disney!
Moana was an exquisite animated film... but I honestly liked the story of Zootopia better.
