Wait. Is Pixar's "Blue Umbrella" disqualified for some reason, or did it not make the shortlist?

 

Because while I preferred Disney's "Get a Horse!", "Blue Umbrella" ain't chopped liver.

And, finally, Requiem for Romance in its entirety. I haven't been able to find any trailers for Get a Horse! or Possessions.

So far it looks like it just wasn't nominated.

 

 

Conspicuously absent from this year's shortlist is Walt Disney Animation's sister studio Pixar, which released "The Blue Umbrella" this year, shown ahead of prints of "Monsters University."

 

 

Now here's a troubling question: Could the Academy have failed to nominate it because people didn't recognize it was 100 percent computer-animated -- because it was perceived as partly live-action?

Cartoon Brew notes that, in addition to the two films I already noted that are nominated for the Annie in this category, there is a third film -- Room on the Broom, nominated for the Annie award for "Animated Special Production" -- that is also on the Oscar shortlist in the Best Animated Short category.

Vote!

 

And note, Get a Horse! and Room on the Broom are the only Academy nominees that are also nominated for the Annie awards, albeit in separate categories.

And the Annie for best animated short goes to... Get a Horse!

 

The Annie for animated special production did *not* go to Room on a Broom.

 

And those are the only two Annie nominees in any category that were nominated for the Oscar in this category.
