You are saying that Disney is the best and everything else sucks.

1. This is a very closed-minded statement. Reconsider your argument.

2. Disney is very good. There are a lot of films by Disney. However, there are other firms. If everything else sucked, Disney would be a monopolist of the film market. It does not. No company has a monopoly in the global film market.

Exhibit 2A

Warner Bros. has the largest market share in the studio market: http://www.boxofficemojo.com...

3. Disney has not won an Oscar in the 21st Century.

Exhibit 3A

This list shows that none of the Oscar winning films in the past 13 years have been won by a Disney studios. http://www.boxofficemojo.com...

Disney has won an oscar for the song let it go, the movie frozen and look at this site http://www.disneyclips.com...;

Granted. However, whilst Let it Go is quite catchy, it also metaphorically drills my head in (a lot of the public will agree).

Also, the link doesn't work.

On the subject of movie scores. Happy, by Pharrell Williams, which features in the film Despicable Me 2 (produced by Universal Studios), has had the following certifications:
Australia 7" Platinum
Austria (IFPI Austria)Gold
Belgium (BEA)Platinum
Canada (Music Canada)5" Platinum
Denmark (IFPI Denmark) 3" Platinum
Germany (BVMI)2" Platinum
Italy (FIMI)3" Platinum
Mexico (AMPROFON)Platinum+Gold
New Zealand (RMNZ) 4" Platinum
Spain (PROMUSICAE)Platinum
Sweden (GLF)3" Platinum
Switzerland (IFPI Switzerland)Platinum
United Kingdom (BPI)2" Platinum
United States (RIAA)4" Platinum [Source: http://en.wikipedia.org...(Pharrell_Williams_song)]

Demi Lovato's song, Let it Go, has had the following certifications.

Australia (ARIA)
New Zealand (RMNZ)
United States (RIAA)

Finally, I think it's very irrational for you to say 'Disney is the best'. It depends on opinion, and you have very unfeasible reasoning.

Don't trust Wikipedia btch and try againhttp://www.disneyclips.com...

Well, I'd like to say thank you for your kindness and your conduct throughout this debate.

Whilst Wikipedia is a great source of information it can sometimes be wrong. However, Pharrell's song is in the top 20 in the UK chart, and DM2 was released last year, and has been at the #1 spot three times. If Frozen is your case study for argument, that was released this year and it had peaked at #11 and is now at #21. The song tends to predominantly attract younger females.

Have a read of this article: http://listverse.com...

I don't have anything against Disney. I just don't think it is the best movie production company.

Take a look at this fact: http://www.imdb.com...
"Warner Bros has Won More Awards Than Every Other Studio Combined"

That's all I have to say now, bye.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro didn't really address the arguments for Con, and was rather rude on top of that. Three one-liners isn't enough to win a round. Good job Con for retaining composure and logically addressing the few issues brought up by Pro.

Reasons for voting decision: It was pretty obvious that wbirchall was trying to be polite while the opposing team was being close minded and not really listening at all. This debate was doomed from the get go.
