If 3D is so Great, Why Can't it Win an Oscar?

The Oscar Nominees are here folks, and I don't care. . . except for Best Animated Film. There were 9 choices that had to be knocked down to three. The 9 Animated films this year eligable for a nomination are:

DreamWorks/Aardman’s Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit
Disney’s Chicken Little
DreamWorks’ Madagascar
Sony Pictures Classics’ Steamboy
Studio Ghibli’s Howl’s Moving Castle
The Weinstein Co.’s Hoodwinked
Warner Bros.’ Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride
Vanguard Animation's Valiant
Pentimedia Graphics Ltd's. Gulliver’s Travel

The 3 films that have been nominated are Walace & Gromit, Corpse Bride, and Howl's Moving Castle. Though CG animation is currently king at the box office, the Academy showed a lot of love for old-school animation by choosing these 3 films (Walce/Gromit and Corpse Bride are stop-motion animation while Moving Castle is traditional 2-D).

Bad idea commission said...

They should make
Wallace & Gromit: Puppy Love on Brokeback Mountian
That would win a award for sure
