Direct to DVD

Good: Many of the films released (Trick'r'Treat) are just great films that couldn't get the proper support

Bad: Most film aren't in that "Good" category

CGI:

Good: Allows filmmakers to do things that haven't/couldn't be done before.

Bad: They use it as a crutch instead of a tool.

Good: A good story is a good story

Good Thing: It can make some awful movies into a fun experience
Bad Thing: It's a completely unnecessary and superfluous technique that has yet to really add to any film

Good: Werner Herzog
Bad: Nothing


Michael Eisner
I call foul on this.  If you take the topic, your majesty, you have to come up with one thing for each.  One Good.  One Bad.  Dems the rules.

I'll cover...

Good: He has a unique relationship with nature that's fascinating to explore in both fiction and documentary form.
Bad: He's off too intrusive and will (*cough) unknowingly (*cough*) make himself a direct focus on the film.

(That was Herzog, not Eisner.)

So now, it's Michael Eisner.

Good: Puts a worldwide spotlight on film for one day

Bad: Is so out of touch with what constitutes film that at this point every award they give out is a joke

Hey! They keep denying Dreamworks [yes, except for Shrek] etc the Animation Award in favour of Pixar or Miyazaki... so that's a good thing. Isn't it?

Yes, but they also ignore lots of valid animation that should be nominated, and make the category a joke in doing so.

Such as...?

They really only pay attention to Disney/Dreamworks/Miyazaki, ignoring in the process such titles as The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Mind Game, Waltz With Bashir, anything by Kon, a bunch of other stellar anime titles and some other non-anime animated films. Sure, every once in a while a Persepolis or Corpse Bride sneaks through, but every year there are plenty more films that deserve to be nominated that they ignore because they have neither the desire or inclination to actually become educated on animation. The fact that they restricted the category to three nominations until this year is really horrific, but based on their idiotic foreign entry rules this shouldn't be surprising.
