Oscar Time!

This morn­ing in Hol­ly­wood, Chris Hemsworth announced the nom­i­nees for this year’s Acad­emy Awards.

Only five films were con­sid­ered for Best Ani­mated Fea­ture this year, despite a large field of pos­si­ble con­tenders. Best Ani­mated Short fea­tures a wide swath of for­eign shorts, with only one from the US.
