Oh right, yeah, Soul will be a shoe-in. But you never know, 2020 was... 2020. There might be enough factors to get Mugen Train in a nom.Pixar's Soul is guaranteed a win. Some people thought Sausage Party had a chance at a nomination with an 82% Rotten Tomatoes score, but that was a very stacked year with lots of competition. I think the fact that Demon Slayer is an animated action film might be a disadvantage as live action action films, especially fantastical ones such as superhero movies, tend to struggle to get Oscar nods and usually only for stuff like special effects. Okay, animated superhero movies like The Incredibles and Into the Spider-Verse have won so superheroes and action stuff seems less stigmatized than the live action Oscars. But an R rated action animated film has so far yet to be nominated as the only other rated R film was a drama film. An R rated nominee of the action genre would be a big deal for the Oscars.
EDIT: And Gotouge made Time's 100 Next list.
