If all qualify, the field is large enough for a full slate of 15 nominees.

The Academy announced today that 16 animated features have been submitted for the 2015 Oscar race. Assuming all 16 qualify, the field is just large enough to warrant a full five-nomination slate at the upcoming 88th annual Academy Awards.

The features submitted are:

Anomalisa
“The Boy and the Beast”
“Boy and the World”
The Good Dinosaur
“Home”
“Hotel Transylvania 2”
Inside Out
“Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet”
“The Laws of the Universe – Part 0”
Minions
“Moomins on the Riviera”
The Peanuts Movie
“Regular Show: The Movie”
“Shaun the Sheep Movie”
“The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge out of Water”
“When Marnie Was There”

Several of the films submitted have not yet had their required Los Angeles qualifying run. All submissions must fulfill that requirement and comply with all other qualifying rules before they can advance in the voting process.

Nominees will be announced alongside all other Oscar nominees on Thursday, Jan. 14, 2016.
