Two things: I’m still taking a break so no reviews or other stuff yet. And the Oscar Awards is really near. No wonder, there are a lot of good films being shown lately. And to add the fact that there are a lot of sites getting ready for the upcoming awards night.

Just yesterday, Variety came out with possible contenders for the Best Animated Feature, five of which will be considered for the nomination. Here are the films:

“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”

I’ve only seen six films already, as I’m not much amused with the animated genre. Nonetheless, I’m assuming that Coraline, Ponyo, and Fantastic Mr. Fox make the list. Closing the five would be Up and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

And isn’t it quite surprising that there are a lot of animated films this year? I think that’s a great boost for the animation industry as there are a handful of Filipino people good in this genre. Way to go Oscars!

    • I’ve seen Mary and Max na.
      I’m just assuming na since Princess is from Disney, may chance na mapasok sa 5 final nominees.


      • i think you’re right.

        Disney has a 90% chance for that reserved seating.
