I am very surprised that Winnie the Pooh and Arthur Christmas were not nominated

@OptimusSolo That... and Tintin... Three that should have been in there.

uuuugh. Let's face it, the last time they EVER got anything right was the Oscar's for 2003 when it came to Return of the King. Now they're just.... lost.

It's good to know the academy has finally decided to extend the "Best Animated Feature" category to 5 nominees after years of being only 3 nominees (I believe they were considering it last year). If they had done it last year, then maybe Summer Wars would've been nominated...

Oh, and lol at no Cars 2 on the list! This is the first time since the category (IIRC) that a Pixar film isn't on the list (minus the years where Pixar didn't release a film).

@PurpleWarrior13 Yes indeed. I can understand though. Cars 2 isn't the usual Pixar genius (same time NO WHERE NEAR as bad as some critics make it out to be) but as for last years.... permanent category or not, there still should have been 5 in my op. They had 5 the year before. I mean... Tangled and Despicable me should've been nominated at least!
