19 Animated Features Submitted For 2013 Oscar® Race

Baby Buck loves his Toy Story wall decals, Cars portable high chair, and his Planes Ride-On, but who would have thought there would be 19 animated features being considered for an Oscar. I better check some of these possible award winners soon so I can expand Baby Buck’s toy repertoire. In case you didn’t know, Ellen is on tap to host.

Have you seen any of these movies? What are your favorites?

    With no kids around our house anymore I don’t watch animated films like I used to. My wife doesn’t like animated films and my time to watch movies is so limited that I try to be very selective in what I do watch.

    But when you have a kid in the house viewing patterns can change big time. I still have an extensive collective of kids’ videos and DVD from when my kids were still living at home.

    I want to see Despicable Me 2 and Monsters U on dvd. I haven’t heard of the others. I’m looking forward to Ellen hosting. She is one of my favorite comedians and she did awesome the last awards show she hosted.

      Haven’t seen Despicable Me, but heard it was good. Loved Monsters Inc. but haven’t seen Monsters U yet. Ellen’s great. Fun and doesn’t take herself too seriously. Perfect remedy for a stuffy awards show wouldn’t you say?

    I’m all for Madoka Magica – Rebellion. It’s a pretty good movie, and plot twists that were very shocking. Plus, the animation is superb, especially in a scene like this: youtube(dot)com/watch?v=LUYVyVqH68Y

    though, this movie is the third in a trilogy, so you either have to watch the original series, or the first two movies (which is just a recap of the series with updated animation and music) first to properly watch and review this movie. But this franchise is arguably one of the best works of art in recent years, as said by some critics. Plus, the third movie got about 1 billion dollors in the first 13 days of it’s release. That’s pretty impressive if I do say so myself.
