Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences OscarBeauty and the Beast changed the way peo­ple looked at ani­mated films. The suc­cess of this film lead to the cre­ation of the Best Ani­mated Fea­ture Acad­emy Award. It was first given out at the 74th Acad­emy Awards, held on March 24, 2002.

Best Ani­mated Fea­ture nom­i­na­tions and win­ners are voted on by the full mem­bers of the Acad­emy of Motion Pic­ture Arts and Sci­ences. If there are 16 or more films eli­gi­ble for con­sid­er­a­tion in this cat­e­gory, five films are nom­i­nated for the award; oth­er­wise there will only be three films nom­i­nated. The Acad­emy rules state:

An ani­mated fea­ture film is defined as a motion pic­ture of at least 70 min­utes in run­ning time, in which move­ment and char­ac­ters’ per­for­mances are cre­ated using a frame-by-frame tech­nique. In addi­tion, a sig­nif­i­cant num­ber of the major char­ac­ters must be ani­mated, and ani­ma­tion must fig­ure in no less than 75 per­cent of the picture’s run­ning time.

The Acad­emy Award year is the year the Oscar is awarded; it is for movies of the pre­vi­ous year.
