21 Films Named Eligible for Animated Feature

Contrary to most years since its inception, the Best Animated Feature field feels wide open this time around. Expected favorites like Brave and ParaNorman were met with underwhelming reviews and no major studio had a box office knockout. Last year, the Academy proved again that it was willing to take risks in this category by rewarding two dynamic foreign features: A Cat in Paris and Chico & Rita. This year offers a number of similarly obscure titles amongst the better known ones. This may wind up being one of the more interesting categories to follow in the coming months:

  • Adventures in Zambezia
  • Brave
  • Delhi Safari
  • Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax
  • Frankenweenie
  • From Up on Poppy Hill
  • Hey Krishna
  • Hotel Transylvania
  • Ice Age Continental Drift
  • A Liar’s Autobiography: The Untrue Story of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman
  • Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted
  • The Mystical Laws
  • The Painting
  • ParaNorman
  • The Pirates! Band of Misfits
  • The Rabbi’s Cat
  • Rise of the Guardians
  • Secret of the Wings
  • Walter & Tandoori’s Christmas
  • Wreck-It Ralph
  • Zarafa

      I agree. It shows diversity in almost every way. From cultural perspective to animation technique. I’m sure there’s some great stuff they’ve left off (this is popularity contest) but this has to be one of the better short lists I’ve seen.
