19 Films Submit for Feature Animation Oscar

Anime includes "Madoka Magica: Rebellion," "The Wind Rises" and "Letter to Momo"

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has listed the 19 films submitted for Best Animated Feature Oscar contention. Not all of them have fulfilled the requirement to run in Los Angeles this calendar year yet, and the academy has a history of disqualifying movies that are less than 75% animated, but if 16 are accepted, then there will be 5 nominees for the next award


The submissions include:

"Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2”
“The Croods”
“Despicable Me 2”
“Ernest and Celestine”
“The Fake”
“Free Birds“
“The Legend of Sarila”
“A Letter to Momo”
“Monsters University”
“O Apostolo”
“Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie – Rebellion”
“Rio: 2096 A Story of Love and Fury”
“The Smurfs 2”
