‘Incredibles 2,’ ‘Isle of Dogs’ Lead 25 Animated Feature Oscar Submissions

There will be a full slate of five nominees in the category this year

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences announced on Wednesday that 25 films have been submitted into the Oscars Animated Feature race, meaning there will be a full slate of five nominees in the category this year. Highlights among the group include “Incredibles 2,” “Isle of Dogs” and “Sherlock Gnomes.”

Several of the films have not yet had their required Los Angeles qualifying run. Submitted features must fulfill the theatrical release requirements and comply with all of the category’s other qualifying rules before they can advance in the voting process.  Sixteen or more films must qualify for the maximum of five nominees to be voted, meaning that this year the submitted films have crossed that threshold.

Films submitted in the Animated Feature Film category also qualify for Academy Awards in other categories, including Best Picture.

Nominations for the 91st Academy Awards will be announced on Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2019, and the 91st Oscars telecast will be broadcasted on Sunday, Feb. 24.
