Oscar animation deadline set for Nov. 1 – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Today should be an animated day around Hollywood. The submission deadline for films hoping to compete in the Oscar race for Best Animated Feature is Nov. 1, meaning entry forms and supporting material must reach the Academy today, THR reports.

As with this year’s Best Picture race, the number of films that potentially could compete is fluid. A rule change equates the number of possible nominees to the number of films submitted. As THR notes, “Eight to 12 submissions can result in two or three nominees; 13 to 15 entries can produce up to four nominees; and 16 or more films can lead to as many as five nominees.”

The year was blessed with a gaggle of strong animated films, from “Rango” (which won the Hollywood Animation Award at the 15th annual Hollywood Awards Gala) and “Kung Fu Panda” to the well-received “Rio.” For the first time in a while, Pixar’s output – “Cars 2” – doesn’t look like the clear frontrunner in the category, meaning something like Steven Spielberg’s “The Adventures of Tintin” or a rival animated feature could rise up and steal a win.

We’ll know soon how many animated films were submitted, and how many nominees we’ll have in the Animated category.
