Mock Squid Soup: June Trivia Teaser


Today, as an added treat for this month's edition of Mock Squid Soup, all society members are invited to post three hints about their film choice for the month.  All are welcome to guess, of course.  Here are the three clues for my movie:

-Twenty years ago, the writer/director of this movie worked on a film that earned seven Academy Award nominations (including his adapted screenplay) but that film only won one award...for Best Visual Effects.

-Since the inception of the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, one of the animated movies this movie's writer/director helmed became one of only two animated features to ever beat a Pixar film for the award. (That's a clunky sentence!)

-Playing anti-heroes in this movie, both lead actors were nominated for Teen Choice Awards for their roles, in two separate movies, as "Best Choice Villain" (She in 2012 and he in 2013).

That was harder than I thought it would be.

  1. Oh boy I am really guessing here and I don't know if you mean an animated film but I am going for The Corpse Bride. I just recently got this film for a song and I can see Johnny Depp and helena Bohnam Carter be the 2 people on the last question

  2. I got nothin'. I thought maybe Fury Road because Theron and Hardy are in that and were villain nominees...but the director clues are a big distraction!

  3. Director would have to be Miller, as only Babe and Shrek have beat Pixar films. (Others have won, but Pixar wasn't nominated that year.) It would have to be Fury Road. As villains, they would've been in Prometheus and The Dark Knight rises, although it I believe those came out the same year.
