Top 100 Animated Films

1. Submit a ranked ballot of up to 50 films by the end of the day, August 15th. It is perfectly acceptable to submit a ballot with fewer than 50 films and even if you haven't seen a lot of the films from the previous iteration. Your participation is important.

2. Scoring will be as follows:
1: 10 points
2-5: 8
6-10: 6
11-15: 5
16-20: 4
21-30: 3
31-40: 2
41-50: 1

3. Results will be tabulated and posted on August 19th if I get at least 20 ballots.

4. All films labeled by imdb as animated are eligible provided they are films (short or feature length) and not television. This means that Animatrix and Team America are now eligible, contrary to previous years. Avatar is not eligible.

5. Please feel free to post preliminary lists to help everyone remember things. Also remember to check the previous list from 2010, including all the films that didn't make the cut last time.

Going with the "no-frills" approach, I basically just copied my Criticker list with a few minor tweaks:

1. Sita Sings the Blues (2008)
2. Wallace & Gromit in The Wrong Trousers (1993)
3. (1979)
4. Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005)
5. Princess Mononoke (1997)
6. (1934)
7. La Poulette grise (1947)
8. More (1998)
9. (1949)
10. Kiki's Delivery Service (1989)
11. (1998)
12. (2001)
13. Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)
13. A Poet's Life (1974)
14. Spirited Away (2002)
15. (1912)
16. Wallace & Gromit in A Close Shave (1995)
17. Fantastic Planet (1973)
18. (1933)
19. Mind Game (2004)
20. WALL·E (2008)
21. Only Yesterday (1991)
22. A Grand Day Out with Wallace & Gromit (1989)
23. Chicken Run (2000)
24. Whisper of the Heart (1995)
25. The Illusionist (2010)
26. Toy Story 2 (1999)
27. Grave of the Fireflies (1988)
28. Toy Story (1995)
29. Wallace and Gromit in A Matter of Loaf and Death (2008)
30. A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
31. When the Wind Blows (1986)
32. South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut (1999)
33. 5 Centimeters per Second (2007)
34. Fantasia (1940)
35. Fantasia 2000 (1999)
36. Kataku (The Demon) (1979)
37. Ward 13 (2003)
38. My Neighbor Totoro (1988)
39. (1993)
40. The Thief and the Cobbler (1993)
41. (2003)
42. Hanaori (The Breaking of Branches Is Forbidden) (1968)
43. (1913)
44. Waltz with Bashir (2008)
45. The Castle of Cagliostro (1979)
46. Persepolis (2007)
47. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
48. (1997)
49. Yellow Submarine (1968)
50. The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1926)

I left off Looney Tunes because I feel like I need to rewatch/re-rank a lot more than I have.  Right now it'd just be all 1957 stuff.  Maybe the next time we do this I'll prioritize some Looney revisits.

I'm not super-psyched about this list, to be honest.  There's some stuff on here I love deeply, but clearly I need to watch a lot more animation.  Embarrassingly heavy on Ghibli, W&G, and only because I watched them fairly recently, Kawamoto and Starewicz.  I'm surprised I have Snow White ranked this high, but I couldn't find anything I'd rather put there.

With shorts eligible and the point system less, um, severe, it might be worth allowing people to submit up to 100 films on their ballots, rather than just a top 50.

(Alternatively, maybe the project should be the Top 50 Animated Films of all time. Maybe a full 100 makes the list too inclusive, meaning no major animated release really has to fight for a spot on the list.)

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

If we include shorts, it needs to be a top 100-- that really opens the field.

I must admit I fail to see how the puppetry of Team America is animation, but what ever I will just not include it in my list and mentally adjust the final list. Thanks for organising this Bondo.
