While it may be the goal of some films to provide the audience with an escape, it is not the primary goal of all films. Some films aim to make the audience connect with a character first and foremost. While it may be easier for animation to provide escapism, the fact that escapism is not the primary goal of all films minimizes this advantage. Further, if films were judged solely on the effectiveness of their escapism, it is safe to say that at least one of the animated films nominated for Best Picture would have won the award. Since no animated film has ever won the Best Picture category, it can be assumed that escapism is not a significant factor in the selection process for the winner of Best Picture.
