Beowulf -- Ratatouille -- The Simpsons Movie
That's my predicted short list.
Nov 9 - 06:27 AM
"Alvin and the Chimpmunks" - Live action with animation, therefore, not an animated feature.
"Beowulf" - Computer enhanced live action. Not an animated feature.
I agree. "Ratatouille" should take it all.
Nov 9 - 06:32 AM
i agree that live action in alvin and the chipmunks disqualifies it (otherwise any movie with cgi would qualify) but beowulf only uses motion capture and is fully rendered in animation, so why wouldn't that count? it looks good enough to make you recognize the actors (a la polar express) but it isn't live at all.
the rightful noms will be 'beowulf' for it's innovative use of cg and technical chops, 'the simpsons movie' because it was a crowd pleaser and big money maker and 'ratatouille' because it's one of the best movies of any kind out this year. Rat will win because it could appeal to everyone, not just the teenage-plus crowd that the other two did.

Jaydawg. Beowolf is 100% an animated film. As in every frame is nothing but animation. The technique they used to draw the human characters is irrelevant. Every frame is animation. Period.
Nov 10 - 06:14 AM
actually Beowulf is all cg so its valid. The previews certainly are misleading in that regard. Guess that'd be praise for it if anything.
Dec 9 - 07:41 PM
Ratatouille most likely, but Beowulf will be quite entertaining, ATHF or the Simpsons, if they won, I don't know whether I could ever stop laughing
Nov 9 - 06:33 AM
This category is such a sham. SPONGEBOB should have one back in '06
Nov 9 - 06:53 AM
Screw the Best Animated Feature category. It was a cop out created after no one had the balls to give Beauty and the Beast the Oscar. Ratatouille should be up for Best Picture. Period.
Nov 9 - 07:18 AM
This is getting ridiculous. Just because an animated film is released shouldn't qualify it for entry into that category. Crenshaw has it right. It's like the Academy is afraid of legitimizing animation.Remember when Titanic came out? 2 movies were nominated for best picture. The least they can do is nominate only those that would deserve something like this.
Nov 9 - 07:25 AM
god, are you serious? why the obsession over a sh3t animated movie...Rat better not win. hopefully Beowulf is half decent cuz the rest of the flix on there aren't "oscar" worthy. cute, but oscar winner? hardly. Rat up for best picture is as justified as Tobin Bell for Best Actor...in Saw. gimme a break
Nov 9 - 07:35 AM
I'd say it's gonna be between Ratatouille, Beowulf and The Simpsons Movie.
Nov 9 - 08:55 AM
Had TMNT used any of the actual villains from the series I would vote for that. I mean who didn't want to see Baxter Stockman, Mondo Gecko, and Rat King battle the Turtles.
Nov 9 - 09:04 AM
Mondo Gecko is a good guy...Karai is a turtles villain and so are the foot so there's you actual villains right there. The Rat King dies in the first issue he's in pretty much so making a movie out of a short story like that would be retarded. The comic Baxter is just a scientist who make a robot body for himself and ends up killing himself.I assume you mean the old toon characters though, which case their way to silly to hold a movie over. The Rat King controls rats with his flute...okay. Baxter is a giant fly who starts to become stupid because his fly brain takes over. It works for a TV show episode not a movie.TMNT isn't a great movie, but the animation in it is alot better then most of those movies listed and on top of that it has great voice acting and a very good musical score.

Nov 9 - 09:07 AM
Oh, and why isnt MONSTER HOUSE on the list that film was awsome!
Nov 9 - 09:08 AM
Monster House was a 2006 release.
Nov 9 - 09:13 AM
Bat-fink, Monster House was nominated in 2006, so you needn't worry about its lack of recognition. I was ticked off about Happy Feet winning, while Flushed Away and Over the Hedge weren't nominated.Anybody remember when Sharktale was nominated? Was the field really that limited? I'll lose complete faith in the system if Shrek III gets a nod.Pick to win: Ratatouille. Though I'm curious about Persepolis and Beowulf. I wouldn't lose sleep if TMNT, Aqua Teen (even though I get a kick out of it) and Alvin & the Chipmunks don't make the cut.
Nov 9 - 10:49 AM
12 are up for the award, but only one deserves it and that would be Ratatouille.
Ratatouille, the simpsons movie, and either beowulf or meet the robinsons, but im leaning more towards the first.and persepolis might be a dark horse to consider, but ratatouille's a lock.
Nov 9 - 09:19 AM
ratatouille is the obvious choice to win.. it was a critical darling and was probably the best reviewed movie of the year. the other two (simpsons movie, meet the robinsons) will just be filler cause ratatouille already has it!!
Nov 9 - 09:20 AM
When did Paprika come out? If it was this year then that movie could have a chance at winning.
Nov 9 - 09:21 AM
I think Paprika is technically a 2006 film, even though it didn't see US release until this year.It should be nominated, though.
