    The Gruffalo is the best

    Also worth pointing out that UP has also been nominated for Best Original Screenplay.

    Those three features are great, they will almost certainly be included as Oscar nominees in the same category, also since there are five this year Princess and the Frog will probably get a nomination and the fifth is harder to predict.

    For the shorts none of those were included among the ten finalists for Oscar. Expect to see the Wallace & Gromit film, A Matter of Loaf and Death and Pixar’s Partly Cloudy and Runaway from Cordell Barker of the NFBC. French Roast and Granny O’Grimm’s Sleeping Beauty both have a decent chance. Nominations will be announced Tuesday, February 2.

    Oscar has become a very fun award even for the shorts.

    The Gruffalo had premiered a month ago on bbc.He deserves the attention and the nomination.
