Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse had been a firm favourite for the "Best Animated Feature" at this year's Oscars, with even some rumblings that it might web up a "Best Picture" nomination as well. 

Then, The Boy and The Heron came along. 

That movie had been picking up a lot of awards heading into this past weekend so it wasn't overly surprising to see it beat Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse to that highly-coveted Oscar. The Studio Ghibli movie was hailed as a masterpiece and, ultimately, a deserving winner. 

However, Miles Morales actor Shameik Moore was understandably disappointed and took to X last night to make his feelings known...

Spider-Verse franchise producer Christopher Miller also shared his thoughts on X. While clearly hurt by the loss, it's apparent he has no issues with losing out to a legend like Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away). 

Studio Ghibli producer Toshio Suzuki has shared the following statement about last night's win:

"As producer of The Boy and the Heron, I am extremely honored to receive the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Academy. I would also like to give my thanks to those who were involved in the production of this film, and to all those who worked to distribute the film worldwide."

"This film began with director Hayao Miyazaki retracting his retirement statement. Following that, we spent seven years in the production of this work. It has been ten years since Hayao Miyazaki's previous film, The Wind Rises, during which time there have been dramatic changes in the environment surrounding films."

"This film was truly difficult to bring to completion. I am very appreciative that the work that was created after overcoming these difficulties has been seen by so many people around the world, and that it has received this recognition. Both Hayao Miyazaki and I have aged a considerable amount. I am grateful to receive such an honor at my age, and taking this as a message to continue our work, I will devote myself to work harder in the future. Thank you very much."

Do you think Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse was a more deserving winner?

Spider-Verse felt old hat now. The first was groundbreaking, and genuinely a good film.

Part two doesn’t even have its conclusion yet. To that, it feels more like a product than a film.

I liked part 2, and the designs were inventive. But I can’t remember it as well as the first. I don’t remember busting a gut (bagel!). getting emotional, or feeling actually inspired (what’s up danger).

So yeah, makes sense why the sequel lost to something original.

Now this actor, to hell with this guy. Wow, what an arse.
