The Academy Awards Announce 20 Film Submissions in the Category For Best Animated Film

Buzz In: Which Animated Movie Is Most Oscar-Worthy?

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences issued a press release today, announcing that 20 films have been submitted for Best Animated Film consideration at this year's Oscars. This means there could be five movies competing at the awards show in March. (In the history of the category, there have typically been only three.) So who is up for the honor?

Some are obvious choices. Up, for example, comes as no surprise thanks to its huge accolades. I also think Coraline stands a chance, as well as Fantastic Mr. Fox (look for my review on Friday!). But Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel seems like a long shot — even though it hasn't hit theaters yet, so I'm just making an early prediction. (Sorry, Alvin.)

With 10 movies in the Best Picture category, I wouldn't be surprised if some of these films end up with more than one nomination. Check out the full list of animated film contenders, and tell me which you think is most deserving of an Oscar when you

What a fun topic, my friends and I are having an animated movie night each week this month.This weekend we'll watch Up! for my first time.I'm sure it'll be excellent and definitely a contender for best Animated film, but I think everyone should wait until The Princess & The Frog has hatched before counting their eggs.

I'd like to see Up (of course), Fantastic Mr. Fox, Ponyo, Coraline, and surprisingly Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs get nominations. And I think Up should win.

This is tough since I loved LOVED LOVED Coraline, but I think UP deserves top honors here. Also, I loved the idea of 9, but I must admit that I was a tad disappointed after I saw it.
