Animation Is the New Sensation
Animated films have made their own genre and are now recognised even at the oscars.
Computer animated movies like Madagascar and Chicken Little dominated the animation style of 10 films in the race for the Oscars, highlighting the shift to the new form of moviemaking.

Hand-drawn Hollywood animation seemed almost like a relic of the past as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences put a total of at least five computer movies on its Oscar short list, along with two others using stop action motion and another two made in the Japanese hand-drawn style of anime.

Along with comedies Madagascar and Chicken Little, the computer-generated movies making Oscar's list of 10 eligible films included Robots, Dream Works Valiant and the upcoming Little Red Riding Hood spoof, Hoodwinked.

Tim Barton's Corpse Bride and the British-made Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, were two movies on the list that use stop-motion animation and figurines.

Japanese-made Howl's Moving Castle and Steamboy are two anime films, while the other film on the list, India's Gulliver's Travels, is yet to screen in the US.

The animated feature film category was introduced at the 2002 awards, and the contenders have been dominated by computer-animated fare.

The last two winners, The Incredible and Finding Nemo, were made by Pixar Animation Studios, which pioneered the genre. The California firm sat out 2005, but will be back next summer with Cars.

A committee of animation experts picks the films that are eligible to compete for the feature animation Oscar.

Nominees for all Oscar categories will be announced on January 31, with the winners unveiled during the 78th annual Academy Awards in Hollywood on March 5.
