Voting only *really* matters when you live in a swing state.

For Disney, there are no swing states lol.

So

Is this going to compete for Best VFX next year (probably insta-winning) or given that it's entirely animated it won't be eligible because it's technically an animation film?

Being fully animated doesn't disqualify from VFX award. Even the Hobbit was nominated.

The Hobbit wasn't fully animated.

But even if this is by definition an animation, it should probably still win the VFX award.

Oh I thought there always had to be real elements in them or something.... I mean it is an animation film now.

Nah I was saying 'should' as in my opinion because of how impressive it is. But the Academy rules says this:
Achievements shall be judged within the parameters defined by the Executive Committee and on the basis of:
a. consideration of the contribution the visual effects make to the overall production and
b. the artistry, skill and fidelity with which the visual illusions are achieved.
Guess it could be interpreted in multiple ways.
