Disney leads ani Oscar list

The Walt Disney Co. dominates the list of this year's Oscar-eligible animated features, fielding four of the 11 eligible entries with its releases, which include the Pixar-produced Finding Nemo, Brother Bear, The Jungle Book 2 and Piglet's Big Movie. But while Disney scored on the distribution front, anime director Satoshi Kon enjoyed the distinction of being the only director with two eligible films. He is represented by the DreamWorks-distributed Millennium Actress and the upcoming Samuel Goldwyn Films/IDP release Tokyo Godfathers. Rounding out the list of eligible films, which were announced Wednesday by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, are Warner Bros. Pictures' live-action/animated combo Looney Tunes: Back in Action, Paramount Pictures/Nickelodeon's Rugrats Go Wild, Miramax Films' Pokemon Heroes, Sony Pictures Classics' The Triplets of Belleville and the German-produced Jester Till.
