Looks like there will be 5 nominees for the Animated Feature Oscar

Here we go...they're under starter's orders...the 20 qualified films that will be winnowed down into 5 nominees for the Animated Feature Oscar.

* “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel”
* “Astro Boy”
* “Battle for Terra”
* “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”
* “Coraline”
* “Disney’s A Christmas Carol”
* “The Dolphin – Story of a Dreamer”
* “Fantastic Mr. Fox”
* “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs”
* “Mary and Max”
* “The Missing Lynx”
* “Monsters vs. Aliens”
* “9”
* “Planet 51”
* “Ponyo”
* “The Princess and the Frog”
* “The Secret of Kells”
* “Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure”
* “A Town Called Panic”
* “Up”

You haven't heard of many of these? You will. The Oscar rush will probably bring all the movies that haven't been in theatres locally here in LA to theatres between now and December 31st. I'm sure many of these aren't worthy. However, with Up and Ponyo likely nominees, it's likely that something good will wind up winning.
