Despite being sub­mit­ted, the Acad­emy notes,

Sev­eral of the films have not yet had their required Los Ange­les qual­i­fy­ing runs. Sub­mit­ted fea­tures must ful­fill the the­atri­cal release require­ments and com­ply with all of the category’s other qual­i­fy­ing rules before they can advance in the vot­ing process. At least eight eli­gi­ble ani­mated fea­tures must be the­atri­cally released in Los Ange­les County within the cal­en­dar year for this cat­e­gory to be activated.

Films sub­mit­ted in the Ani­mated Fea­ture Film cat­e­gory may also qual­ify for Acad­emy Awards in other cat­e­gories, includ­ing Best Pic­ture, pro­vided they meet the require­ments for those categories.

Acad­emy Awards for out­stand­ing film achieve­ments of 2013 will be pre­sented on Oscar Sun­day, March 2, 2014, at the Dolby The­atre at Hol­ly­wood & High­land Cen­ter and tele­vised live on the ABC Tele­vi­sion Net­work. The pre­sen­ta­tion also will be tele­vised live in more than 225 coun­tries and ter­ri­to­ries worldwide.
