Accepting the movie's elite Oscar status isn't easy for the Disney fan. On the one hand, the film is eminently worthy not only of the nod, but a win. On the other, it's no more so than a dozen other animated classics that haven't been so recognized, including a few released that same decade. Characteristically, the Academy's track record with animation has as much to do with timing and politics as it does the movies themselves, but there's undeniably something especially Oscar-esque about Beauty and the Beast. Fairy tales are simultaneously the cause and the cure of our biggest complaint about Hollywood: retread.
