Ten films eligible for best animated motion picture oscar

BEVERLY HILLS, CA - Ten films will be considered for Oscar nominations in the animated-feature category, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Thursday.

Under academy rules, a maximum of three films can be nominated in a year when there are at least eight eligible films but fewer than 16. The films can also be nominated in other categories, including best picture.

The eligible films: "Chicken Little," "Gulliver's Travel," "Hoodwinked," "Howl's Moving Castle," "Madagascar," "Robots," "Steamboy," " Tim Burton's Corpse Bride," "Valiant" and "Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit."

Nominees in the animated film category and 24 other categories will be announced Jan. 31. The 78th Academy Awards will be presented at the Kodak Theatre on March 5.

Sadly, the steaming pile that is Chicken Little will probably win, since awards shows actually award political ties, not actual talent.

And, yes, that's just my humble opinion.

It better be Steamboy, Howl's Moving Castle, and Corpse Bride. And/or Wallace and Gromit.

It it's Valiant, Robots, and Chicken Little I am going to vomit.

Is ten a lot compared to other years?

Having seen none of those films, I will still venture a guess that Corpse Bride and Chicken Little will be two of the nominees.

My bet is Howl's Moving Castle, Corpse Bride, and Wallace and Gromit.

While I like the first two, W&G all the way.

Hopefully Howl's Moving Castle or Corpse Bride will win. But it does sound like Wallace and Gromit has gotten some pretty big buzz so we will see

I agree, those three would be my picks and I would ultimately choose Wallace and Gromit.

Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit better win. And it stands a decent chance, since the Wallace & Gromit shorts have won Oscars in the past.

My next choice would be Howl's Moving Castle.
