16 Animated Films Make Oscar Shortlist

Sixteen animated features have been submitted for consideration for the Best Animated Feature category at the upcoming 88th Academy Awards in February.

Only five of these films will be nominated for the category with those nominations to be announced in January. The sixteen potential qualifiers are:

“Anomalisa,” “The Boy And The Beast,” “Boy And The World,” “The Good Dinosaur,” “Home,” “Hotel Transylvania 2,” “Inside Out,” “Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet,” “The Laws Of The Universe – Part 0,” “Minions,” “Moomins On The Riviera,” “The Peanuts Movie,” “Regular Show: The Movie,” “Shaun The Sheep Movie,” “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water,” “When Marnie Was There”.

Pixar’s “Inside Out” and Charlie Kaufman’s “Anomalisa” both seem like automatic shoe-ins. The other three spots though are up for grabs.
