  • I just wanted to elaborate a little on the animated film discussion. To be considered as a nominee, the film must be at least 45% animated. That’s why these live action movies get considered. As far as Avatar, I believe it got passed “animated film” since it was done with performance-cap. And it’s fucking James Cameron.

    Also from what I know, as academy voter for the animated feature, you MUST watch all of the qualifying movies in order to vote. I believe this is how Secret of Kells snuck in last year.

    As far as my wishlist for the nominees would be The Illusionist, Summer Wars, and Toy Story 3. Sadly, this won’t happen for Summer Wars which is awesome.

    As always, great show guys!
