    The Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voted last night (12/10) to activate the category for the 75th Academy Award Presentations.

    The 17 films were accepted as eligible to compete by the executive committee of the Short Films and Feature Animation branch of the Academy, which recommended to the board of governors that the Award be given for this year.

    The films are:

    <i>"Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights"
    "Alibaba & the Forty Thieves"
    "Eden"
    "El bosque animado (The Living Forest)"
    "Hey Arnold! The Movie"
    "Ice Age"
    "Jonah - A VeggieTales Movie"
    "Lilo & Stitch"
    "Mutant Aliens"
    "The Powerpuff Girls Movie"
    "The Princess and the Pea"
    "Return to Never Land"
    "Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron"
    "Spirited Away"
    "Stuart Little 2"
    "Treasure Planet"</i>

    "The Wild Thornberrys Movie"The eligibility of two of the films, "Eden" and "The Wild Thornberrys Movie," is subject to their opening in Los Angeles prior to December 31. "Eden" is scheduled to open December 13 and "The Wild Thornberrys Movie," December 20.

    lilo & stitch. i'm not a big disney fan but they really did something they have not since lion king. and even better is that it was original and not a stolen idea from someone else.

    As it stands right now I'd vote for Treasure Planet. That may or may not change after I've rented Spirit this weekend.

    Easily.
    At the center of the world there is a statue of a girl. She is standing near a well with a bucket bare and dry. I went and looked her in the eyes and she turned me into sand. This clumsy form that I despise scattered easy in her hands. And it came to rest upon a beach, with a million others there. We sat and waited for the sea to stretch out so that we could disappear into the endlessness of blue, into the horror of the truth. We are far less than we knew.

    Yes, we are far less than we knew.

    I don't understand why people liked this movie.
    It was incredibly dull.
    It dosen't help matters much that I hate Elvis... but I didn't like any of the characters (including Stitch) and was bored to tears.

    Spirited Away by a looooooooong shot.

    If it doesn't win and the award goes to "Ice Age", (which won't be impossible) it'll be all because of bureaucratic policy-games. Oscars these years are pretty much just f***-up policy games anyway! Look at all the Best Movies of the past 5 Years (or since "Titanic"). Which one truly deserves it!? None!

    And it has absolutely nothing to do with Hawaii.

    I felt it was almsot a discrace to Hawaii.

    Can someone tell me why Stuart Little 2 is eligible? I didn't see it, but from my understanding, it's mostly live-action with one or two computer-generated characters, one being the main character of course. There must be more to it, otherwise I would think with that reasoning movies like Episode II would be eligible (more so, actually.)

    Because Childrens crap is 99% of what kind of animated stuff gets released in North America. I remember reading an article that mentioned something about the comic code. (censorship of comics in North America led to cartoons?)

    Anyway Japan never had a comics code so they have all sorts of crazy stuff over there. Sad story really. We need more cool stuff.

    And do some research about Canada while your at it!!

    Probably the two places in the world most mis-represented in film and TV. Maybe. I really don't know.

    I mean really....we don't live in igloos or anything. Infact there has hardly been any SNOW here this year and we don't say EH all the time. Well, maybe we do but we don't notice it and it's not a big deal...grumble grumble grumble...
