Zootopia and Piper.

Both good films, both very safe, mainstream picks. No huge suprises.

Piper’s got a Canadian director, Alan Barillaro, Sheridan grad from Chippawa, Ontario. Here’s the Toronto Star coverage: https://www.thestar.com/entertainment/movies/2017/02/26/ontario-animator-alan-barillaro-wins-best-animated-short-oscar-for-piper.html

Congrats to the winners, and big congrats to all the nominees. We had a really strong group of Canadians representing this year.
