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 Academy Award Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film. It was first given out at the 74th Academy Awards, held on March 24, 2002.

Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film 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.
