Animated Film Oscar™ Contenders

Here are the ten films in the running for the 2005 Oscar™ for Best Animated Film:
  • Corpse Bride
       Laika/Warner Brothers
  • Wallace & Gromit The Curse of the Were Rabbit
  • Madagascar
  • Chicken Little
  • Howl's Moving Castle
       Studio Ghibli/Disney
  • Valiant
       Vanguard Animation/Disney
  • Robots
       Blue Sky/20th Century Fox
  • Hoodwinked
       Weinstein Company
  • Gulliver's Travels
       Pentamedia Studios
  • Steamboy
       Triumph Films/Sony Pictures
Quite a mix this year. Two stop-motion films, two 2-D films enhanced with 3-D effects, and a bunch of CG films. All of these will be wittled down to three films. Very tough call. I personally would choose Howl's Moving Castle, Corpse Bride, and Wallace & Gromit just because those are the only three that I've seen that I liked enough. Steamboy was cool up to a point until it just went on too long. The CG films were pretty lame this year.
