nom noms



The Oscar Noms are here for Best Animated Feature Film of 2009! The nominated films are:

Up
Coraline
The Princess and the Frog
Fantastic Mr. Fox
The Secret of Kells

Up is most likely the front runner here due to the fact that it was also nominated for a Best Picture award; only the second animated film ever to be nominated for that category along side Beauty and the Beast. In 1991 there was yet to be a Best Animated Feature category so the fact that Up was nominated for that particular award despite the fact that there is an animation category is a pretty big deal. However due to the unlikely fact that it will win Best Picture and if someone else wins Animation, it could prove to be a big disappointment. Fantastic Mr. Fox,being the "underdog," could change the whole decision as it has been receiving just as positive reviews.

I'm a bit upset that Ponyo did not receive any noms, I definitely think it is more worthy than Princess, but I am glad to see The Secret of Kells getting a bit of attention.

Here are the nominations for best animated short:

French Roast
Granny O'Grimm's Sleeping Beauty
The Lady and the Reaper
Logorama
A Matter of Loaf and Death
