    Re: 15 Animated Feature films vie for 3 Oscar nominations

    my picks for nomination:

    legend of the guardians
    toy story 3
    how to train your dragon

    my choice for the winner....veryyy difficult. i absolutely loved legend of the guardians. however it was slow in parts and too quick in others. but the visuals were absolutey stunning!! how to train your dragon also had great graphics and was a very good movie. toy story 3 was great as pixar usually is. i would say the race is a good one this year. i think i have a softspot for legend of the guardians and i have no idea why haha but i'm pulling for it. but my assumption is that toy story 3 will win.

    I'd love to see How to Train your Dragon get it. I really don't want Disney rewarded for the mess they've made of Tangled.

    ps. How is Cats and Dogs allowed? it's live action, with CGI characters.

    For me, it's:
    • “Toy Story 3”
    • “How to Train Your Dragon”
    • “Despicable Me”
    However, I haven't seen Tangled yet, so that could certainly make the list if it is as good as it looks.

    No credentialed media only. For the second largest event of the year for AMPAS they wouldn't appreciate or tolerate potential interference or security issues from the general public.
