London, November 12 (ANI): The next year’s Academy Awards has received 20 entries for best-animated feature category - the maximum ever.

And even if 16 films qualify, there will be five nominees in the feature-length animation category

The last time Oscars saw five nominations in 2002, reports the Telegraph.

Some of the films, which have made the cut, are ‘Up’, ‘Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs’ and ‘Monsters vs. Aliens.’

Now these films need to complete in a weeklong theatrical run in Los Angeles to qualify for the Oscars.

Academy rules for the category also state that a “significant number of the major characters must be animated, and animation must figure in no less than 75 percent of the picture’s running time.”

Some more films enlisted for the award are, ‘Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel,’ ‘Astro Boy,’ ‘Battle for Terra,’ ‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.’ (ANI)
