The Animated Films for the race for Best Animated Feature for the 85th Academy Awards

by adog1990 | created - 28 Jan 2012 | updated - 11 Dec 2012 | Public

A list of what animated films might be good for for one of my favorite Oscar catgories "Best Animated Feature" and this will be for the 85th Academy Awards. Rows 1-5 are my predications of who I think will win the final round and be nominated if some will get into the race. Rows 6-12 are my other choices for my predications if some can make it in the race. While rows 13-21 are what animated features I think will be extreme long shots in the race. I am predicting that will be 17 or 18 animated films for the race.
