    ...and the Best Animated Feature Film Oscar goes to...

    Ten Films to Compete For Animation Oscar
    Source: Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
    November 17, 2005


    Ten films will compete in the Best Animated Feature Film category in the 2005 Academy Awards® competition.

    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.

    Wallace and Gromit is clearly heads and shoulders above the rest in terms of story and quality.

    I get to chose 3....

    Wallace & Gromit
    Corpse Bride
    Madagascar

    Not in that particular order.

    Valiant made it on the list?

    I think Corpse Bride or Wallace & Gromit - The Curse of the Were-Rabbit have the best chance of winning... and maybe chicken little. It did have very nice looking animation. I never saw Robots or Madagascar, so I can't say.

    Walalce and Gromit is the major one on the list, I agree. It's a piece of work, alright, very good.

    Wallace and Grommit has to win, I can't imagine any other that did this good.

    If Howl won (mmmmm, naked wizard with Christian Bale's voice) I'd squee so loud the house would tremble. But a) Miyazaki got it two years ago, b) Howl wasn't a critical darling the way Spirited Away was, and c) he doesn't care about awards and is unlikely to show up, so I'm sure they'll give it to sodding Madagascar or something else unworthy.

    Steamboy would be a worthy nominee, IMHO, it was just such a marvel to look at--so bombast and action-packed and full of neat steampunk contraptions and London getting destroyed. But it'll never be nominated. America still by and large considers all anime to be nothing but big eyes, violence and naked chicks and therefore it's all automatically trash.
