Japan's biggest animated film of 2016 "Your Name" did not receive any nominations from the 89th Academy Awards.

Momentum had been building for the film which was expected to receive a nomination for "Best Animated Feature Film". Ultimately, however, this did not occur.

The lack of a nomination comes despite the film's major influence in Japan, and increasingly abroad. "Your Name" has received critical acclaim both domestically and abroad for its beautiful animation and emotional storytelling.

"Your Name" is the highest grossing anime film of all time, beating out "Spirited Away" at global box offices. It is also the highest grossing Japanese film of all time in various markets, including China and Thailand.

"Your Name" will be hitting theaters in North America on April 7.

    I liked watching "Your Name", but it was an overrated anime film, imo. Maybe that's why Oscars snubbed it. T_T

    I agree! The movie is just fine. I Liked the animation but still I prefer Spirited Away.

    I enjoyed "Your Name" for its beautiful animation. But, wish a few aspects of the story were explored better. I think it deserved to get nominated, however, I wouldn't be upset if it didn't win. I honestly preferred movies like "Colorful" or "Mononoke Hime" over it. Anyway, it is an international blockbuster that deserves recognition even if I'm one of the people not in love with it.

    I am not surprised at all. I watched the film upon recommendations from sites and friends but I was sorely disappointed. The story was convoluted, didn't make any sense (for me) and lack any notable theme song unlike other Ghibli movies. So personally, I think it is understandable that the film was snubbed in an English-speaking accolade.
