*If you like animated films, here is my write up on Studio Ghibli's work: https://moviepilot.com/posts/2015/04/01/studio-ghibli-s-films-2828301?lt_source=external,manual

Pixar are legends of animation. They revolutionized animated films and have produced some of the greatest animated movies of all time. I highly suggest watching every movie on this list. There is one caveat to remember about my rankings: The Academy Awards did not have a Best Animated Feature Oscar until 2001. Remember, art is subjective, so everyone will likely have a different ranking. All information and statistics were taken from IMDB, Box Office Mojo, and Rotten Tomatoes.

14.) Cars 2 (2011) –

39%/51% Critic and Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes. Made $560 million at the box office. This is the one blemish on Pixar’s record. It is their only movie that many critics and fans did not like. It was also their first movie not to be nominated for an Academy Award.

13.) Monsters University (2013) –

78%/82% Critic and Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes. Made $743 million at the box office. Another sequel from Pixar. It is not as good as the original and was not nominated for an Academy Award.

12.) Cars (2006) –

Nominated for Best Animated Feature Oscar. 74%/80% Critic and Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes. Made $462 million at the box office. This is a solid movie. Some people do not care for it, but it is still a quality film.

11.) A Bug’s Life (1998) –

92%/72% Critic and Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes. Made $363 million at the box office. This is an underrated animated movie. If the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature had been around when this came out, it likely would have gotten a nomination and maybe even a win.

10.) Brave (2012) –

Won Best Animated Feature Oscar. 78%/76% Critic and Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes. Made $539 million at the box office. This is a great movie, but it is likely the weakest of Pixar’s Oscar winners.

9.) Monsters, Inc. (2001) –

Nominated for Best Animated Feature Oscar. 96%/90% Critic and Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes. Made $563 million at the box office. This was Pixar’s first movie to get nominated for the Best Animated Feature Oscar. It was the first year the Academy Awards had the category.

8.) Ratatouille (2006) –

Nominated for Best Screenplay Oscar. Won Best Animated Feature Oscar. 96%/87% Critic and Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes. Made $623 million at the box office. This is a great movie, but it is one that people sometimes forget about.

7.) Toy Story 2 (1999) –

100%/86% Critic and Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes. Made $485 million at the box office. If the Academy Award for Animated Feature had been around when this came out, it likely would have gotten a nomination and maybe even a win.

6.) The Incredibles (2004) –

Nominated for Best Screenplay Oscar. Won Best Animated Feature Oscar. 97%/74% Critic and Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes. Made $631 million at the box office. This is Pixar’s take on the superhero genre. A sequel should be coming in the next few years.

5.) Wall-E (2008) –

Nominated for Best Screenplay Oscar. Won Best Animated Feature Oscar. 96%/89% Critic and Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes. Made $521 million at the box office. This is a great movie that some were unsure about. At first people did not know if an animated movie with so little dialogue would succeed. Pixar showed them!

4.) Finding Nemo (2003) –

Nominated for Best Screenplay Oscar. Won Best Animated Feature Oscar. 99%/86% Critic and Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes. Made $936 million at the box office. This is a great movie that achieved both critical and financial success. A sequel should be coming in the next few years.

3.) Toy Story 3 (2010) –

Nominated for Best Screenplay and Best Picture Oscar. Won Best Animated Feature Oscar. 99%/89% Critic and Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes. Made over $1 billion at the box office. This is Pixar’s only movie to ever break $1 billion at the box office. Some may consider it Pixar’s best film ever due to its critical and financial success. I think some of its success is due to the fact that people thought it was going to be the last Toy Story ever.

2.) Up (2009) –

Nominated for Best Screenplay and Best Picture Oscar. Won Best Animated Feature Oscar. 98%/90% Critic and Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes. Made $731 million at the box office. This was Pixar’s first movie to be nominated for the Best Picture Oscar. At the time, it was only the 2nd animated movie ever to garner a nomination in that category.

1.) Toy Story (1995) –

Nominated for Best Screenplay Oscar. Won Special Achievement Award at the Oscars for being the first full length computer animated movie. 100%/92% Critic and Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes. Made $362 million at the box office. If the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature had been around when this came out, it likely would have gotten a nomination and maybe even a win. I have this as Pixar’s best film, because it is the original. It started everything for the company. Because of this movie, other studios started to produce computer animated films as well.
