Road to Oscars: 18 Animated Films Submitted for Consideration

The end of the year always leads to Oscar speculation but it also lead to many confirmations in the other categories not well to the public.  In the Animated Feature category, 18 feature films have been submitted for Oscar consideration, a couple of them surprising as they aren't traditionally all animation.  Here is the complete list:

-The Adventures of Tintin
-Alois Nebel
-Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked
-Arthur Christmas
-Cars 2
-A Cat in Paris
-Chico & Rita
-Gnomeo & Juliet
-Happy Feet Two
-Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil
-Kung Fu Panda 2
-Mars Needs Moms
-Puss in Boots
-The Smurfs
-Winnie the Pooh

The Adventures of Tinitn is mostly a motion-capture film while The Smurfs contains live action/animation together.  Will the Animation category see some firsts this year?  It will be tricky for sure, but that said, Kung Fu Panda 2 and Rango are looking like front runners.  I am surprised to see Mars Needs Moms on this, it was a big flop but hey, the grand total comes to 18 films which means there will be five nominees.  It's always a tough race with only three nominees.
