Oscars: 21 pics aim for animation prize

Features submitted for contention; several still need to have qualifying runs

“Brave,” “ParaNorman” and “Wreck-It Ralph” are among the 21 films officially submitted for top animated feature consideration for February’s Academy Awards.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences released the list less than a day after Thursday’s deadline for submission. By surpassing the 16-film threshold, the category will have the maximum of five Oscar nominations.

Several of the films submitted will need to stage their required Los Angeles qualifying runs and comply with the category’s other rules before they can advance in the voting process.

A year ago, 18 films were in consideration for animated feature nominations, with “Rango” ultimately emerging triumphant.

These are the 21 submitted features, listed in alphabetical order by title:

“Adventures in Zambezia”

“Brave”

“Delhi Safari”

“Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax”

“Frankenweenie”

“From Up on Poppy Hill”

“Hey Krishna”

“Hotel Transylvania”
