Best Animated feature category gets a boost with 20 toons slated to receive qualifying runs in Los Angeles theaters by year’s end, encouraging the studios to enter more than one entry per Oscar season, reports Variety. While Disney has Wall-E and Bolt in contention, DreamWorks’ plans to launch campaigns that focus on the individual strengths of both of their submitted films- Kung Fu Panda and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. The article also talks about how this year’s race might have been different if Fox had submitted Space Chimps and Universal had entered The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything: A VeggieTales Movie and pushed the total submission count to 16, boosting the chances for films such as Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who! and The Tale of Despereaux. Since there have been 14 submissions this year there will only be three nominations on the shortlist.
