Twenty-one animated films have been submitted for consideration for an Oscar. Which one would you vote for?
“”Brave,” ”Wreck-It Ralph” and “Rise of the Guardians” are among the animated features angling for an Oscar nomination….
“Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax,” ”Frankenweenie,” ”Ice Age Continental Drift” and “ParaNorman” are among the high-profile movies vying for one of five nominations. Other contenders include France’s “The Rabbi’s Cat” and Japan’s “From Up on Poppy Hill.”
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences says several of the films listed have not yet had their required Los Angeles qualifying runs.
“Rango” won the prize earlier this year after 18 films were in nomination contention.
The 85th annual Academy Awards are set for Feb. 24, 2013, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.”
We have not seen “Wreck-It Ralph” yet or “The Rise of the Guardians,” it’s not out for a few more weeks, but my kids do want to see both of them. “Wreck-It Ralph” scored big this weekend.
“The $165 million animated film topped the chart with $49.1 million out of 3,752 theaters — the strongest debut ever for a Walt Disney Animation production (i.e. not including Pixar titles). Disney’s Tangled opened with a whopping $48.8 million over the more lucrative Thanksgiving weekend in 2010, so Wreck-It Ralph‘s slightly larger bow (and its hefty $13,086 per theater average) should be viewed as a major victory for the Mouse House.”
I really think that “Frankenweenie” will stand the test of time. It’s just a good movie for kids and adults.
Did you see “Wreck-It Ralph” this weekend? Did you like it? Is it worth your money? Is it worth 3-D money? Which has been your favorite animated feature of the year? Which should win the Oscar?
