ANIMATED FEATURE FILM
Anyone actor who earns an Oscar nomination in a Jerry Bruckheimer production deserves some sort of award, but I doubt he'll beat Sean Penn or Bill Murray. Depp willl get some juicy parts thrown his way in the next few years, so he'll be a front-runner soon.

Seeing Marcia Gay Harden nominated for Mystic River made me happy. Acting next to Penn and Robbins, I thought she'd be overlooked.
Are animated films like Finding Nemo still eligible for Best Picture, or do they only compete for Animated Feature Film?
Finding Nemo was eligible for Best Picture.
But I bet it will be a long time, if ever, when you'll see an animated movie nominated in the best movie category.
Actually, Disney's Beauty And The Beast was nominated for best picture back in 1991.

I guess some of those big egos would hate to lose out to a bunch of cute fish!
That's what I mean. There have been many fine animated films made over the years, but now that they have their own category, I don't think they'll nominate one in the regular category, even though they're still eligible.
I'm so sorry, Qboots, I misunderstood your post. :mmm And I completely agree with you! :up
I think Beauty And The Beast threatened too many directors/producers. And then when a small animation company named PIXAR started putting out some really good stuff, the Academy decided to nip it in the bud. IMHO
It's better this way anyway. It's like being able to nominate 10 best films instead of 5. More people's work will get recognized.
A nomination for "A Mighty Wind" ! Woohoo!!!! Although it probably won't beat out the other songs in the category, I'm just thrilled that they received a nomination!!! It's a fabulous movie, way to go.
The biggest surprised is definatly Keisha Castle Hughs for Whale Rider. She was very good in it, and was only 10 when she filmed the movie. She is 13 now and the youngest Oscar nominee ever for best actress
