The full list is here. And if my memory serves me correctly, no winner of the Best Animated Feature at the Annie’s has gone on to not win the Oscar for Best Animated Feature (bar of course, the Academy’s blunder when they gave that penguin film the award instead of Cars. Surely there is no doubt in their minds this year. I guess this article is also a good segue into this New York Times article on the issue of Disney putting Ratatouille up for Best Picture this year also.

    Well deserved, and it wouldn’t surprise me if Ratatouille wins most of these awards.

    ps : there are actually 3 nominations for voice acting (Janeane Garofalo, Ian Holm and Patton Oswalt) 🙂

    Beware being overconfident. Persepolis could snatch it unexpectedly, and we have to be prepared for that.

    I’m disappointed that Lou Romano wasn’t nominated, as I thought he did a great job as Linguini.

    Wonderful! Absolutely wonderful!

    (And I’m pretty sure Ratatouille has great chance at winning. 😀 )

    I think all the voice actors of RATATOUILLE should have been nominated! They totally forgot Peter O’Toole, who did an awesome job as Anton Ego.

    I want to check out PERSEPOLIS. It sounds interesting.

    I mean they only didn’t nominated one of the, if not the, best voice acting performances ever, Peter O’Toole
