Ten Animated Movies to Compete for Oscar Consideration

by | November 18, 2005 | Comments

ComingSoon.net shares a press release from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) regarding the Best Animated Feature hopefuls. Seems we have a solid ten movies fighting for the three nomination spots.

"The 10 films have been accepted as eligible to compete by the executive committee of the short films and feature animation branch of the Academy, which has recommended to the Academy’s Board of Governors that the category be activated and the Award be given for this year. The board has approved that recommendation.

Films that have not yet been released in Los Angeles County must fulfill all of the general release qualifying rules before the end of the year.

The eligible films are:

Chicken Little
Gulliver’s Travel
Hoodwinked
Howl’s Moving Castle
Madagascar
Robots
Steamboy
Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride
Valiant
Wallace & Gromit – The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

Under the rules for this category, a maximum of three films can be nominated in a year in which the field of eligible entries numbers at least eight but fewer than sixteen.

Films submitted in the Best Animated Feature category also may qualify for Academy Awards in other areas, including Best Picture, provided they meet the rules criteria governing those categories.

The 78th Academy Award® nominations will be announced at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater on Tuesday, January 31, 2006. Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements for 2005 will be presented on Sunday, March 5, 2006, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland®, and televised live by the ABC Television Network beginning at 5 p.m. PST."

(P.S. Anyone know what "Gulliver’s Travel" is?)
